Workamajig ($380 per month for ten users) is a Web-based service designed for creative firms, departments and ad agencies to completely manage finances and projects, including contacts, calendars, time sheets, billing, artwork approval, manage assets, calculate project milestone dates, and much more.
It integrates with Apple’s iCal, iSync and Address Book to allow use across local or wide networks through the Internet, and you can schedule projects from the end date backwards, to determine a start date. The server software can reside on your own server, or their Web server.
The company just added the ability to enable or disable features as needed, and it added support for Safari 4.0.5. There are many other features, and I encourage you to take a test drive.
