Version: Creative Project Manager 7.4.5
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. We are an Internet Marketing Firm that does both Web Design, Development, Applications Integration and Online Marketing and Advertising for large corporations. We have looked for an solution like this for 9 years that met the flexibility requirements we need. Remote access for our people and freelancers, client access to specific areas, accounting and business analytics. Like any system, what comes out is only as good as what goes in but we are getting a great deal of decision making info out of the system and its focus on best practices are allowing our team to focus on client issues rather than a bunch of process issues. It started as a time tracking and project management system that had added benefits. Those added benefits are beginning to eclipse the others from a top-level business management perspective. We also just added the accounting functions and are ready to begin using as are main accounting system after less than 30 days of set up. I have switched accounting systems in the past and this is excellent. Another aspect of buying it as a service is that it puts a good amount of pressure on the provider to improve the system. Our experience is that they are responsive to requests and criticisms. The Web based aspect has its inherent benefits and draw backs but all in all it is a big win for us!

Version: Creative Project Manager 6.2
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. What for?
Its listed once as "Creative Project Manager" and once as "Creative Manager Pro" both at version 6.2. What gives? Just a marketing ploy? Oh and there's also "Infowit Creative Manager" but I cant tell if that's the same or not.

Version: Creative Project Manager 6.0b
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com. The interactive demo is a horrible representation of how a company would build a web-based application... slow loading, broken and mis-acting links. Sounds like something I would like to use, but with that performance -- and for a version 6!!! No thanks.
Support for Apple's iCal, Microsoft's Outloook, Mac OS X Server, and Apple's upcoming Mac OS X Leopard. The integration with Apple's Mac OS X iCal and Microsoft's Outloook allows users of Creative Project Manager to send calendar meeting requests, even to those who are not using Creative Project Manager, and have the invitation show up in the invited person's Apple Mac OS X iCal or Microsoft Outloook calendar.
These new integration capabilities allow users of Creative Project Manager to interface with more outside users, and brings Creative Manager one step closer to emulating the calendaring capabilities of Outlook and iCal.
As always with Creative Manager Inc.'s products, no installation or conversion are necessary, and all updates are at no cost to users of Creative Manager Pro and Creative Project ManagerÃ???Ã???Ã???Ã?Â¢??Ã???Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢Ã???Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã??Ã?Â Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢??Ã??Ã?Â¬Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢??Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã???Ã???Ã???Ã?Â¢??Ã???Ã?Â¢??Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã???Ã???Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢??Ã??Ã?Â¬Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¡Ã???Ã?Â¢??Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¬Ã???Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã??Ã?Â¦Ã???Ã?Â¢??Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¡Ã???Ã???Ã???Ã?Â¢??Ã???Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¢Ã???Ã???Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã??Ã?Â¡Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¬Ã???Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¦Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¡Ã???Ã???Ã???Ã?Â¢??Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢??Ã??Ã?Â¬Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¡Ã???Ã???Ã??Ã?Â¢Ã?Â¢?Ã?Â¬Ã??Ã?Â¡Ã???Ã?Â¢??Ã???Ã??Ã?Â®.
