Creative Manager Inc. (http://www.Creative-Manager.com), provider of Creative Project Manager and Creative Manager Pro, has released version 8.15 of its flagship product, with over twenty improvements based on input from users of its Agency Software and Project Management Software.
As a result of interviews with a core group of clients, Creative Manager Pro has compiled a list of over twenty key changes that clients were asking for, and implemented them within two months of those client discussions. More user-driven changes are on the way for next month's 8.2 release as well.
No installation or conversion is necessary, and the update is free to all users of Creative Project Manager and Creative Manager Pro. All client logins and vendor logins are always free.
Performance and security were top on the list on this month's release, as Creative Manager Pro looked at the list of requests big and small that users were asking for.
Ron Ause, Director of Marketing for Creative Manager, Inc., said "While designing these system modifications, we spoke to over fifty of our closest clients. We asked for their input, acted on it, and delivered. In record time! Other Ad Agency management systems have an annual meeting where they invite their clients to vote on new features, where everyone gets one vote. Then they work on these features for a full year and roll out about sixty new features. By contrast, we release from twenty to sixty enhancements EACH MONTH. All based on user input. Now you know that We're Always Listening!"
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. This is but the latest in a series of monthly upgrades. Further details of this month's update may be found at http://CreativeManagerPro.com/Press_060130a.aspx.
Some of the changes in this month's release are preparations for the changes to the electronic billing worksheet that will be released next month, when an overhaul to the agency-centric electronic billing worksheet makes its debut.
When asked about the new upgrade, Ause said "We move faster than any of our competitors, getting new functions and new features out the door every month. All based on user-input. We're Always Listening!"
