Creative Manager Inc. (http://www.Creative-Manager.com), provider of Creative Manager Pro software, has released version 8.35 of its flagship product, Creative Manager Proï¿½.
"This new release 8.35 includes many enhancements that our clients asked for, proving once again that we are responding to our clients' needs," boasts Ron Ause, Creative Manager's director of marketing. "Clients keep asking us to take the lead in the industry with new and innovative solutions and we respond with an easier-to-use interface, and more powerful features in every upgrade."
Among the variety of updates now available to all Creative Manager Proï¿½ users are added security settings on custom report data sets. Users can create a report and give a group access to run it, but they may not be able to edit the report. Should users want to allow others to create their own reports for contact management, but only be able to run existing reports for time details, this new security feature now provides that flexibility.
Media enhancements are also included in this new version. Improvements to the Transaction Preference function provide users the option to sync vendor invoices from Strata and SmartPlus as "approved" or "not approved." Additionally, new upgrades offer logic to determine the outstanding open amount on a vendor invoice being applied to pre-billed orders when importing form Strata or SmartPlus.
As always with Creative Manager Inc.'s products, no installation or conversion will be necessary, and all updates are at no cost to users of Creative Project Manager and Creative Manager Proï¿½. All client logins and vendor logins are always free.
"Our competitors release a new version about once a year, while we introduce enhancements to our software about every four to six weeks," said Ause. "Our dedication to keeping our products as up-to-date as possible, and the fact that, with our service, it takes hours to fix problems that with our competitors takes days, has caught the attention of our clients, and has helped us grow through word-of-mouth."
Creative Manager Proï¿½ continues to invest, adding new features that work with Apple's latest Tiger Mac OS X and future Leopard Unix-based Operating System and Microsoft Windows. Further details of this month's update may be found at http://Creative-Manager.com/Press_060905a.aspx.
When asked about the new upgrade, Ause said "Since so many of our clients service Fortune 500 firms, or are themselves Fortune 500 firms, the addition of the unlimited addresses was an important addition for us. Like most months, this month's update is all based on user input. Because 'We're Always Listening!'"
