Creative Manager Pro, Ad Agency Software and Project Management
Groupware for Creative and Design firms, has announced version 8.4.2,
with Interactive Graphical Views of Job Schedules, and improved
support for Safari 2.0.4.
Anthem AZ – April 18, 2007 – Creative Manager Inc.
(http://www.Creative-Manager.com), provider of Creative Manager Pro
software, has announced version 8.4.2 of its flagship product,
Creative Manager Pro. Expected in early May, the focus this month is
on graphical calendaring.
After last month’s integration with Apple’s Mac OS X iCal and
Microsoft’s Outloook, Creative Manager Pro turns it attention inward
to allow the user to see a graphical representation of the project
schedule across the entire firm
“For the past few months, we’ve been focused on integration with
outside systems, because those were important features that our
Fortune 500 clients asked for. This new release now adds more
features to our own internal calendar,” boasts Ron Ause, Creative
Manager’s director of marketing. “We’re stubborn! Our whole reason
for existing is to respond to our clients’ needs!”
The new graphical calendar allow users of Creative Manager Pro to see
all projects on one calendar view, and gives users the ability to
color-code projects for effective presentation and quick review.
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 users told us how much they love the Creative Manager Pro
calendar – it’s so important to their daily work flow. As simple as
it sounds, listening to our clients is what we do best,” said Ause.
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 these new features was an important 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.
