My client doesn't want to learn collaborative software, he just wants to follow the progress of his project.

I want a quick and easy way to keep my client up to date and keep track of all important documents.

Quickly and easily monitor project progress

Kirby Project Hub is an advanced version of Brad Frost’s project hub idea. A project hub is a tool for keeping track of the progress of a freelance project. The hub lives online and is accessible to everyone involved in the project. A project hub consolidates all the key project information onto a single webpage presented in reverse chronological order.
