SplendidCRM Software Leverages Mono and Copy Deployment to Deliver SplendidCRM on SUSE Linux

Raleigh, NC (December 15, 2006) -- SplendidCRM Software, Inc. today announced the release of SplendidCRM 1.2 for Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and SplendidCRM 1.1 for Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10. With these two new releases, SplendidCRM has created the ideal cross-platform CRM for companies that wish to tightly integrate a CRM with their back-office systems.

Using the Mono platform, we are able to leverage the incredibly productive .NET tools from Microsoft, but still allow copy deployment". Put simply, "we can compile our application on Windows, copy it to a Linux installation that supports Mono, and run it," said Paul Rony, President of SplendidCRM Software.

"Not enough people realize that Mono can support copy deployment. We are pleased to see SplendidCRM take advantage of this feature. Beyond allowing a single code base, copy deployment will allow them to ship a single set of binaries." stated Miguel de Icaza, Vice President in charge of Mono at Novell.

SplendidCRM has also announced the availability of a free Runtime License to hosting companies who license SplendidCRM Professional. "Our goal is to provide a cost-effective platform for hosting providers to integrate a CRM into the vertical markets that they already serve", said Mr. Rony.

SplendidCRM provides live demos of its software running on SQL Server, Oracle, DB2, and MySQL. A live demo of SplendidCRM running on Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 has been made available at
