Creative Manager Inc. (http://www.Creative-Manager.com), provider of Creative Project Manager and Creative Manager Pro, has released version 7.95 of its flagship product, with improvements to the integrated calendar for both Mac OS and Windows users.
With its version 7.95, Creative Manager Pro has made significant improvements to the calendar to bring it more on-par with the capabilities of Microsoft Outlook. One such example is the new detailed five day week view, added rollover pop-ups that show the detail of meetings and assignments shown on the calendar. Additional improvements were made for Mac OS X 10.4.2, which incorporates a number of enhancements to improve reliability and compatibility for iCal.
No installation or conversion will be necessary, and the update is free to all users of Creative Project Manager and Creative Manager Pro. All client logins and vendor logins are free.
Creative Manager Pro offers the most complete free user login on the market. In the last few months they have continued investing in this area of the system by adding the ability for free users to approve estimates, view the status of project assignments, add files to digital asset management, participate in project discussions via the diary, and now to view open and paid invoices. These new features are in addition to the ability to request new work, view calendar/gantt charts, review artwork online, view budgets and actual charges at billable, and review project specifications.
Ron Ause, Director of Marketing for Creative Manager, Inc., said "We continuing to invest and to add more value to our system for our users. Free Client Extranet is a feature of Creative Project Manager and Creative Manager Pro that has attracted thousands of users. When our clients say that their clients want to see more of the project, we've answered by empowering them and their clients to communicate more efficiently, and with more powerful tools."
Creative Manager Pro continues to invest, adding new features which work with Apple's latest Tiger Mac OS X Unix-based Operating System and Microsoft Windows. Further details of the update may be found at http://CreativeManagerPro.com/Press_050731a.aspx.
As a mature product with over eleven years in development, all new features added can not be sexy headline grabbers. In fact, the majority of the thirty-plus enhancements added to this release can only be appreciated by their existing clients, who have been the source of new ideas about sharing ways to fine tune the product for maximum efficiency.
When asked about the new upgrade, Ause said "We listen to our clients and have included many of the most requested enhancements, such as more flexible estimate format options, and simplifying the way hours are allocated to staff. 'We're Always Listening!'"
