More on 5pm

5pm is a project management software application that is used by its customers over the internet.  Instead of needing locally installed applications on computers and laptops, 5pm is one of a newer breed of applications that are delivered as ‘software as a service’ or SaaS, where you pay for what you use on a monthly basis.

Functionality covers a range of areas including:

  • project and task management, for scheduling and monitoring project activities
  • customizable reporting including downloading to a CSV to allow more comprehensive manipulation in other applications
  • centralized sharing of documents and notes amongst team members, ensuring everyone is in constant touch with project status
  • management of time and effort to allow reporting on billable hours
  • email integration to ensure that team members receive automatic notifications

5pm also boasts an interactive timeline, which is more recent functionality that has been added to the application, allowing users to schedule and move tasks by simply clicking and dragging them within a Gantt chart view.
