Creative Manager Pro, Version 7.7 ReleasedSoftware for Creative and Design Firms Adds Client Presentation Tools, Budget Notifications (April 19, 2005)
Creative Manager, Inc., provider of Creative Manager Pro and Creative Project Manager, has released version 7.7 of its flagship product, adding enhancements to fifteen areas within the flagship Ad Agency Management system. The new update offers a dramatic improvement in the way images can be presented to clients.
No installation or conversion will be necessary, and the update is free to all users of Creative Manager Pro and Creative Project Manager. All client logins and vendor logins are free.
Using the new features, users are now able to package a set of images to be presented to their client and then reveal them one at a time during a conference call presentation to the client. This allows the user to pitch the idea and present the images while on the phone with a client.
The new version also brings budget notifications to a new level. Being able to get notifications when a task, service, or item goes over the planned budget in any of these areas will help managers stay on top of the bottom line throughout the project cycle.
Ron Ause, Director of Marketing for Creative Manager, Inc., said "The new client presentation features were implemented based on requests from our current user base. Adding new features on a monthly basis is now a tradition at Creative Manager."
Creative Manager Pro continues to invest heavily to add the new features which work with Apple's OS X Unix-based Operating System and Microsoft Windows. This month's update continues in that tradition. Further details of the update may be found at http://creative-manager.com/PressRls_050418a.asp.
When asked about the new upgrade, Ause said "We're Always Listening! Budget notifications help our clients stay under budget, and deliver on time. And, when a client says that they need a new feature done, or that an existing feature is not working one hundred percent for them, we're there for our clients one thousand percent!"
