We use PHPcollab and it does everything it says on the label (it is 
still a WIP and so should mature into something far more usefull).

-add clients
-assign client projects
-add 'users'/resources to the projects
-define tasks/sub tasks/phases (with time estimate and deadline)
-update task/sub task/phase status with actual time to date + completion 

...what it is not currently very good at is:

-tracking each instance of time spent on a task/sub task/phase

these guys seem a quite popular solution :


I believe that a certain number of user licenses are free. < 20?
