Creative Manager Inc. on Monday released version 7.5 of its Creative Manager Pro software, which is aimed at creative and design firms that need to track projects and manage financials. This upgrade adds enhancements to the scheduling feature, such as a calendar view and the ability to create multiple assignments for each task. Version 7.5 also includes cash basis income statement and statement of cash flow reports as well as expanded menus that allow quicker access to functions and more. This is a free update for all existing users, with free training included for customers who need it.
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.
