Workgroups 2007 released
MetaCommunications has released the 2007 version of Workgroups, its management software suite aimed at creative, marketing, publishing and print businesses. Among more than 50 changes, one of the new additions is Solution Libraries, which introduce extra functions to Workgroups in a plug-and-play fashion, emphasizing specialized processes and vertical industry segments. These will be released for free starting in July; initial Libraries will include Creative, Photography, Prepress, Web Development and more. Workgroups requires a Windows 2000 or 2003 server, but client software is available for Mac OS X 10.3. Prices start at $1,700 for individual programs or $5,000 for the whole suite. Upgrade options are also available.
