Creative Manager Pro Version 8.4.05

Creative Manager Pro, Ad Agency Software and Project Management Groupware
for Creative and Design firms, has announced version 8.4.05, with support
for Apple’s iCal, Microsoft’s Outloook, Mac OS X Server, and Apple’s
upcoming Mac OS X Leopard.

Anthem AZ – March 6, 2007 – Creative Manager Inc.
(, provider of Creative Manager Pro
software, has announced version 8.4.05 of its flagship product, Creative
Manager Pro, due by the end of March.

The integration with Apple’s Mac OS X iCal and Microsoft’s Outloook allows
users of Creative Manager Pro to send calendar meeting requests, even to
those who are not using Creative Manager Pro, and have the invitation show
up in the invited person’s Apple Mac OS X iCal or Microsoft Outloook

“Integration with outside systems is an important features that our Fortune
500 clients have asked for. This new release beats our competitors on yet
another feature,” boasts Ron Ause, Creative Manager’s director of
marketing, “proving once again that we continually respond to our clients’

These new integration capabilities allow users of Creative Manager Pro to
interface with more outside users, and brings Creative Manager one step
closer to emulating the calendaring capabilities of Outlook and iCal.

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.

“This new version is the best of both worlds. The goal is to create the
best of breed system in all areas, but have it integrated to run the entire
business. Since most people love iCal and Outlook, we have done a lot to
match their capabilities and this is one more step in that direction,” said

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 iCal and Outlook integration is a high priority. Our
dedication to keeping our products as up-to-date as possible, and the fact
that, with our service, it takes only hours to fix problems that with our
competitors takes months, has caught the attention of our clients, and has
helped us grow through word-of-mouth. Like last month’s update, this update
is also based on user input. Because ‘We’re Always Listening!'” Ause said.
“Try doing that with Advantage software or Clients and Profits and see how
far you get!”
