About Workgroups 2011

The Workgroups 2011 suite is a tightly integrated collaborative process and productivity management suite for marketing, advertising, creative design, packaging and prepress. Workgroups 2011 is comprised of four key modules. This provides an open and flexible solution so that users can adopt the modules of the suite that meet their initial needs, yet retain the ability to later expand the solution.

The four core modules of Workgroups 2011 are:

  • Virtual Ticket, a configurable project and workflow solution that brings together all the components of your work to a centralized location, including project briefs, job tickets, schedules, customer information, associated document files and more.
  • Approval Manager, an approval management workflow tool for managing, tracking, and scheduling any proof review process within and across marketing, advertising, creative design and production environments.
  • Digital Storage Manager, a powerful storage management solution designed to integrate a workgroup's file management into the overall creative design and production workflow. The solution associates files with projects, archives & retrieves files, and enables users to quickly find digital files for creative design or production processes.
  • Job Manager, a powerful suite of financial management tools that enable users to accurately create estimates and quotes, monitor job costs, quickly generate on-demand reporting and invoices, and share information with industry leading accounting systems.
