Background/Objectives: Modern day projects involves people from different geographical location working together so managing the workflow, handling the deadlines have become very important feature of a project management tool. TechTool provides the user interface to manage such projects.

The method of analysis is done by user reviews and studies based on similar past projects. Findings: Software project management is a very important part for building a quality software, Software project management should be up to date with latest technologies and needs of current organizations. Now-a-days it is very common for an organization to be based on different geographical locations so such a system is desired. If companies apply the traditional project management techniques, the schedule will slip away during testing. To be able to avoid these problems, software project management tools focused on matching user requirements to deliver products with utmost coronation among all the drains that are working in the organization1. Many new techniques are available in TechTool based on current trends which will make the work easier and on time with better quality. Interaction between people based in different location is physically impossible but TechTool will provide a platform for them to interact with the manager as well as among themselves.
