Anthem, AZ (PRWEB) August 7, 2008
Workamajig (http://www.Workamajig.com), the leading worldwide software program for ad agencies and others in the creative and design industries, announced the next version of its project management software, with new Drag & Drop Flash Gantt Charts and improved support for Apple's latest Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.4.
The new version, due out toward the end of August, will allow users of the Workamajig software to manage their schedules directly through the graphical Gantt chart. Additional features include:
- Moving of tasks via drag and drop
- Drag and drop start and end date of tasks
- View graphical representation of predecessors
- Allows for dynamic zoom of any aspect of the Gantt chart
- View original and actual schedules
This will be the second upgrade, following the huge May upgrade of the integrated Ad Agency system which converted from Creative Manager Pro to Workamajig. The May upgrade included a major foundation upgrade to its Ad Agency management software, addressing interface improvements based on months of research, client interviews and user feedback. All of the improvements are a direct result from many man-years of research and direct client feedback from actual users of the Creative Management Software.
"Investing in our clients is the key to our success. As our client list reaches the 20,000 mark worldwide, they continue to give us the feedback that we need to make Workamajig the best Project Management Software in the industry," touts Ron Ause, Workamajig's director of marketing. "Giving our clients the features that they ask for is what we've done best over the last decade. Now we're focusing on pairing that attention to client satisfaction, with a great user-driven GUI."
Graphical representation of predecessors allows users to see something that they've never seen before. These predecessor settings are usually esoteric settings in other software packages. With Workamajig, the user can actually see these relationships.
As always with Creative Manager Inc.'s products, no installation or conversion are necessary, and all updates are at no cost to the over 18,000 users of Workamajig. All client logins and vendor logins are always free.
"As we grow, we continue to invest more in our project management software than anyone on the planet," boasts Ause. "Each of our clients wants to be the best creative firm that they can be. Increasing the profits and efficiency of our clients is our job."
Workamajig continues to invest, adding new features that work with Apple's latest Mac OS X Leopard Unix-based Operating System and Microsoft Windows.
All updates are deployed using Workamajig's own Auto-Updater, which allows them to deploy updates to all hosted sites, and to clients' servers at any time. Repeating his refrain, Ause says, "We can deploy a change to the program in hours - even minutes! Our competitors take months or years to get to their list. 'We're Always Listening!'"
