Creative Manager Inc. has announced that the next release of its
Creative Manager Pro ad agency software will add a Media Buying module. Due to ship in mid-August, Creative Manager Pro 7.1’s new module will enable agencies to track print insertion and broadcast orders, generate media cost estimates, view media schedules and handle media billing and pre-billing, among other functions. The update will be free for all registered users of the software.
Creative Manager Pro is a Web-based application that works on both PCs and Macs from any location and over any connection. It helps you manage contacts and leads, chart important statistics, create project schedules and task lists, approve such paperwork as timesheets and budgets, review and approve artwork, balance your books and more. 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 version, contact Creative Manager Inc. for more information.
