Anthem AZ – October 31, 2006 – Creative Manager Inc.
(http://www.Creative-Manager.com), provider of Creative Manager Pro
software, has released version 8.37 of its flagship product, Creative
“This new release 8.37 includes specific enhancements that our large
agency clients asked for, proving once again that we are responding
to our clients’ needs,” boasts Ron Ause, Creative Manager’s director
of marketing. “Clients keep asking us to take the lead in the
industry with new and innovative solutions and we respond with an
easier-to-use interface, and more powerful features in every upgrade.”
Among the variety of enhancements now available to all Creative
Manager Pro users is the ability to automatically mass email AR
invoices to customers with an option for the client to pay via credit
card directly from the invoice. This eliminates the need to hand mail
(or individually email) invoices.
Media enhancements were included in the previous version 8.35.
Improvements to the Transaction Preference function provide users the
option to sync vendor invoices from Strata and SmartPlus as
“approved” or “not approved.” Additionally, new upgrades offer logic
to determine the outstanding open amount on a vendor invoice being
applied to pre-billed orders when importing form Strata or SmartPlus.
As always with Creative Manager Inc.’s products, no installation or
conversion are necessary, and all updates are at no cost to users of
Creative Project Manager and Creative Manager Pro. All client logins
and vendor logins are always free.
“Our competitors release a new version about once a year, while we
introduce enhancements to our software about every four to six
weeks,” said Ause. “Our dedication to keeping our products as
up-to-date as possible, and the fact that, with our service, it takes
hours to fix problems that with our competitors takes days, has
caught the attention of our clients, and has helped us grow through
Creative Manager Pro continues to invest, adding new features that
work with Apple’s latest Tiger Mac OS X and future Leopard Unix-based
Operating System and Microsoft Windows.
When asked about the new upgrade, Ause said “Since so many of our
clients service Fortune 500 firms, or are themselves Fortune 500
firms, the addition of the unlimited addresses was an important
addition for us. Like most months, this month’s update is all based
on user input. Because ‘We’re Always Listening!'”
