We are developing a project and task management software solution called Gemma for our own internal use and potential commercial release as a web application software solution. Below is a brief description of this ambitious project. You can also visit Gemma’s official website gemma.app
What does GEMMA do?
Gemma is a project and task management web application software at its core. It is designed to help small to medium sized professional service providers, consultancies and designers to organise their projects and tasks and keep track of their payment and workload. Gemma keeps a registry of client businesses, persons in that business, quotes, projects, invoices and operators of the business.
As Gemma records payments, it can also be used to show the income of the business. By adding a place to record the expenses, Gemma can be used as a simple accounting solution without the unnecessary complicated functionality of full scale accounting software. Since it remembers all the times and interactions of the project, Gemma can provide information about the business in the form of well formatted business intelligence presentations and charts. When Gemma has learned enough about the business it starts acting on her own and takes care of client interactions, invoice follow up, welcome emails etc. It monitors the performance and health of the business and either acts by itself to fix problems or brings the issue to the attention of business owner. In general, when the software is at its mature stages, Gemma will act as a very well informed and disciplined employee who truly cares about the well being and health of the business it serves.
Gemma services the small to medium sized business sector of the market who run their services on a project basis. Small SOHO one man businesses and small to medium sized practices all have similar needs and problems. Regardless of the business size, each project focused business requires effective and automated software solutions for the following critical areas: Project Management – Task Management – Accounting – Customer Relation Management Office Management – Business Intelligence and Budgeting.
Gemma aims to provide this section of the market with a very simple to use project and task management solution. At the same time it can provide the business with the most important functionalities of enterprise level specialised software packages in the areas mentioned above without the added complex features and settings which are only required by larger businesses which can afford the capital and specialised skillset to operate those solutions.
Gemma project has emerged from a live business environment based on its core day to day needs, requirements and problems. As a result, its approach to solving business problems is practical, effective, unobtrusive and simple.

Typical problems faced by any SME business & how GEMMA can help
I'm too busy to learn several new softwares to manage and organise my business in different areas
I know nothing about accounting, budgetting, CRM, Project Management, BI etc but I need a little bit of all of them in my business
I constantly need to copy the same information between several different softwares that I use to make them work
I can't learn to work with a new software each time I have a different business need and requirement
Any business owner practically loses productivity and opportunities for business growth by being consumed with managing the day to day operations of a business. This is particularly true in recent years as the administrative and regulatory playground of running a business steadily becomes more complex every day. By using Gemma, a business owner can avoid learning different software solutions and rely on a simple to use software to address all the core needs and problems of managing their business.
Good softwares have a lot of features and settings that I never use for my daily business but I need to learn them to make the software work
The majority of advanced business and project management softwares in the market focus on offering extensive array of features which is not necessarily a good thing for many types and sizes of business. Gemma only provides the most obvious and useful functionalities of high end feature rich packages and avoids the confusing complexities of unnecessary features which are rarely used by most businesses.
I need someone to constantly follow up with the fee proposals that I send and follow up the invoices when my clients don't pay on time
I have projects and tasks which I need to assign to my employees and I need to know how they perform their duties
Gemma has a simple and very effective project and task management engine as its core functionality. The project management workflow of Gemma has been the result of extensive UX analysis on several businesses and therefore it is the best response to real world scenarios and actual business problems. It performs task and project assignment and ascertains that the projects are on a safe path to timely delivery. Gemma also constantly monitors the performance of various business operators and educates itself and the business owner regarding their performance metrics.
I don't have the time or budget to hire someone to send seasonal greetings and welcome messages to my good clients
By use of the software’s virtual intelligent business agent, Gemma’s CRM module constantly monitors the operations of the business and its clients. The clients of the business are always ranked and arranged based on the most relevant evaluation criteria and the best and most important clients of the business are always arranged in special registries. Gemma automatically attends to the best (or all) clients of a business by sending welcome emails, introductory emails and seasonal greetings while conforming to the best business etiquette and proven practices.
I don't know exactly how much money I made this month by my invoices paid and by comparing it to my expenses
How can I assign a budget from my cashflow for business expansion. I need someone to monitor my income and expenses all the time and let me know how much I can count on
