Pearl - FREE - SaaS business software

Small companies can start using Pearl Express for free to manage money, customers, jobs, orders, products and website.

Pearl will release 4 new pricing plans of it's web-based business software on 1st May 2009:

- Express (FREE)
- Starter
- Standard
- Premium

"It's an exciting launch for us. To date we've been working tightly with a few larger companies, and now our goal of making Pearl available to all businesses is a reality. There's nothing out there in the market that does what we do at this price", says founder Chris Tanner.

Small companies can start using Pearl Express for free to manage money, customers, jobs, orders, products and website.

Pearl offers an impressive range of functionality with a pricing structure that will appeal to businesses of all sizes: from early day start-ups to well established companies that trade globally.

In addition to the new pricing plans, Pearl have packed in more features, including:

- A new user interface
- New CRM features like Email Marketing
- A credit card processing console with Secure Trading
- A web portal for their customers to re-print invoices/statements, make payments, track jobs/orders and more.

What makes Pearl different from the myriad of other "Web2.0" Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications available is the pure breadth of functionality.

"Many new applications launching at the moment actually have limited use to a business owner/manager, you can find web based accounting, web based CRM, hosted website systems and so on, but suddenly you have the same customer and product information duplicated in several systems.

"With Pearl, there is no need to run separate systems, every part of a company's day to day operations run seamlessly together. It's easy to setup - there's no installation required, and the whole application runs in an internet browser."
