If you’re in creative services and you’re looking for software to help track projects and manage accounts, you might want to take a look at the latest release of the FileMaker Pro-based
beAccountable SE, version 2.1. This new version is a low cost “Special Edition” developed specifically for single user installs.
The software has been specifically developed to help creative services companies and individuals — graphic designers, marketing/communications pros, advertising and PR folks — to track time and resources spent projects. beAccountable is built on top of FileMaker Pro 5 and requires either the desktop version or FileMaker Pro Server to function.
beAccountable SE 2.1 sports five primary toolsets, including:
Projects: Record and archive project details, keep accurate time logs and generate vendor quote requests.
Companies: Consolidate all of your client and vendor information in one place.
Traffic: At a glance, track progress on all projects.
Contacts: Maintain detailed information on all the people you work with.
Time Cards: Record and archive your working hours, show total billable hours by period and quickly cross reference total time per project.
beAccountable SE 2.1 requires a PowerPC-based Mac; Mac OS 8 – Mac OS X; 32MB RAM (128 for X); a hard disk; and TCP/IP or an AppleTalk based network.
Available for both the Mac and PC, beAccountable 2.1 costs US$49.95. It’s available online.
