IGG's iBiz 4, iBiz Pro
IGG Software has released iBiz 4 and iBiz professional, upgrades to its time-tracking, billing and project management software. iBiz 4 features customizable templates for statements, invoices and reports, new graphics powered by Core Animation, and an iCal sync engine for projects, events, and invoice due dates with alarms. A variety of interface refinements has been made including a new pop-up inspector to help edit project information, and a modified main window to help users access and organize to-do's, files, and events.
iBiz Professional provides users with all the improvements in iBiz 4, and includes iBiz Server 4 and two client licenses. The professional version enables users to remotely access their iBiz network from any location with an internet access, and allows the sharing of job events and to-do's with other co-workers or employees. iBiz Server can be set to limit employees to specific parts of the program, such as restrict access to billing functions, project earnings, and job event rates. All changes made by users on the iBiz server will be updated in real-time.
iBiz 4 is available at $40 for new users or $20 for registered iBiz users; it is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. Users can also purchase the iBiz Professional package directly from the website for $100, or purchase an iBiz client 10-pack for $270.
