Job Manager 4.5 released
MetaCommunications has announced the availability of an upgrade to Job Manager, its financial management add-on for Workgroups 2007. Job Manager handles tasks such as estimates, costs, reporting and invoices; new to v4.5 is a completely rewritten automated billing system, which is now controlled via a web browser, with supported applications including Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer on both Mac and Windows systems. The interface has also been simplified, and automated invoicing intended for creative and prepress businesses now supports partial and progressive workflows.
Custom multi-page reports and invoices can be created through Workgroups 2007's report server. Workgroups servers require Windows technology, but various clients are available for Mac OS X 10.3 or higher. Licenses for Job Manager start at $1,495, with the whole Workgroups suite starting at $4,995.
