Creative Manager Inc. announced recently that version 6.2 of their flagship product,
Creative Manager Pro, now supports calendar and contact sharing with Apple’s iCal and Address Book applications. The new feature helps managers fully integrate personnel schedules and contact information in the projects they track with the tool. The company also noted that, because iCal and Address Book can sync with Palm OS devices, you can now take the Web-based calendars generated by Creative Manager Pro on the road.
The tracking system’s other functions are Web-based as well. You can use it to manage all aspects of projects, from staffing and execution to financial reports. It charts important statistics, creates project schedules and task lists, stores digital assets, and allows you to approve timesheets and budgets, review and approve artwork, balance your books, and more. In addition, you can give clients and vendors free access to the system where necessary.
Creative Manager Pro 6.2 will be a free update when it’s released on Monday, March 8. You can try out an online test drive of the software before you spend US$39 per user per month (with a five-user minimum) on the hosted version, which is a subscription-based model with a one-year agreement. If you’re interested in a solution that doesn’t include an accounting function, the company also offers
Creative Project Manager, which runs $35 per user under the same terms. For details on the purchased versions of either system, contact Creative Manager, Inc. for more information.
