Kool Tools: Studiometry 11
Orange Software recently updated Studiometry, its client and project management tool, to version 11. The upgrade sports a new user interface and over 120 features and improvements.
A new three-column layout in version 11 makes navigating your data easier. Customizable overviews have also been added to let you instantly see a snapshot of information for a selected client or project. For example, now when you select a project, Studiometry can immediately show you the project’s budget chart, any incomplete to dos, and all associated invoices. You decide what information is shown and the order in which it appears. You can also quickly create and edit items directly within the overviews.
Studiometry for Mac is now built using Apple’s Cocoa Frameworks. This provides advantages over the previous Carbon Frameworks, including full screen support, system spellchecking, and system services.
Studiometry 11 also features enhanced estimating functions. Projects can now be billed strictly based on their estimated amounts, while still tracking actual work and expenses behind the scenes to calculate costs and profits. The project estimating interface itself is now easier to use as well, with clear explanations of each estimating mode and assistance entering and viewing estimated items.
