An Administrator is a special user type which can manage the server with the same privileges as root. He can access the control panel, but such services as shell, ftp or e-mail are not available to him.
See also the article Administrator accounts. Technical details. (ISPmanager).
In this module you can add new administrators, edit their properties, delete, disable and enable them, or switch to their control panel if necessary.
Selecting the "Superuser" check box in the administrator edit form allows you to create a full-fledged account with shell access.
