Ad agency and project-management-software solution Creative Manager Pro has been updated.

Creative Manager Pro 8.4.05 offers iCal, Outloook, Mac OS X Server, and Mac OS X 10.5 'Leopard' support. The new version ships at the end of March.

Creative Manager Pro is a web-based integrated project management software and job tracking solution that streamlines a creative business, from developing new business, staffing, managing, and executing projects through to accounting and financial reporting.

The integration with iCal and Outloook allows users of Creative Manager Pro to send calendar meeting requests, even to those who are not using Creative Manager Pro, and have the invitation show up in the invited person's iCal or Microsoft Outloook calendar.

"Integration with outside systems is an important feature that our Fortune 500 clients have asked for," said Ron Ause, Creative Manager's director of marketing. "The goal is to create the best-of-breed system in all areas, but have it integrated to run the entire business. Since most people love iCal and Outlook, we have done a lot to match their capabilities and this is one more step in that direction," he added.
