Workamajig — formerly Creative Manager Pro, the ad agency software and project management groupware – will gain improved Leopard compatibility and new project management chart making capabilities in its next release. Its developer expects the new version to be released at the end of August.
Workamajig is especially designed for the needs of ad agencies and creative design firms, in-house creative and marketing/communications departments and others. The software provides Web-based integrated project management and job tracking capabilities. You can use it to manage contacts and leads, approve timesheets, purchasing, billing and budgets, review and approve artwork, store and manage digital assets and more.
New to the late August release will be improved support for Mac OS X 10.5.4. Also new is the ability to manage schedules directly through the graphics Gantt chart.
Other new features in the forthcoming release include the ability to move tasks by drag and drop, drag and drop to start and end date of tasks, a graphical representation of predecessors, dynamic zoom of any aspect of the Gantt chart, and the ability to view original and actual schedules.
The update will be deployed using Workamajig’s built-in auto-updater.
