It's not clear to me from your description that you want a web app. Does
the management app run on a server or is it something that individual
users run on their own machines?
If the app runs on a server then a web framework can be very helpful. I
like Django a lot but there are many other choices.
If users run the app on their individual computers then you should look
at one of the GUI toolkits like Tkinter or wxPython.

I have used Django and matplotlib to create charts and display them in a
web page. There is a simple example here:
Both Tkinter and wxPython are supported by matplotlib directly.
