Project Reporter is not meant to be an all-purpose project management tool
rather, it is designed to allow you to easily and effectively
disseminate project information
to project stakeholders.
Stakeholders in a project may include the following:
Generally speaking, the further stakeholders are in the organizational structure
from the core project team, the more interested they will be in the ease of
access that Project Reporter provides to project information. Project managers

software for reporting actual effort; but people in these roles can also benefit
from Project Reporter's enhanced presentation of the state of the project.
Members of the project team;
Project managers responsible for a project;
Higher-level managers or overseers of the project within an organization;
Clients within or outside the organization.
Project Reporter is appropriate for organizations who wish to publish project
information to a variety of types of users, both easily and inexpensively. Its
web-based implementation makes it much more cost-effective than placing
general-purpose project management software on every stakeholder's desktop.
