SplendidCRM Software goes live with cost-effective Software-as-a-Service

Raleigh, NC (December 16, 2008) -- SplendidCRM Software, Inc., a pioneering provider of Microsoft-centric Customer Relationship Management (CRM) solutions for open-source use, today announced the immediate availability of its SplendidCRM Live Software-as-a-Service. SplendidCRM will be providing cost-effective CRM services on an all-Microsoft 64-bit technology stack. SplendidCRM is a fast-growing open-source CRM with over 100,000 downloads, 5,000 installations and 126,000 Google AdSense page impressions per month.

"We have been waiting for the right time to offer hosting services. Microsoft has helped us select the right time with their new BizSpark startup program," said Paul Rony, President of SplendidCRM. "SplendidCRM Software has been a Microsoft Certified Partner for several years as well as a Microsoft Hosting Partner, but this new BizSpark program will accelerate our entry into Software-as-a-Service and dramatically reduce our startup costs. We intend to pass these savings on to our customers." SplendidCRM will be going live in an all-Microsoft Windows Server 2008 64-bit environment with SQL Server 2008 64-bit Enterprise on its database servers.

"BizSpark addresses a fundamental challenge facing startups; affordable access to full-featured tools and technologies that help turn great ideas into a thriving business ", says Rich Kramarik of Research Triangle Business Advisors, a BizSpark Network Partner. "In this case the benefits will also be passed on to the end user, in the form of cost reductions, and everyone wins."

SplendidCRM will provide three levels of service. Community Live is for small companies that just need the core CRM modules, such as Accounts, Contacts, Leads and Opportunities. Professional Live is for companies that need Order management and Reporting. Enterprise Live is for companies that need a powerful CRM with full workflow capabilities. Enterprise Live also includes the ability to receive PayPal notifications and import old PayPal transactions so that eBay sellers can immediately benefit from the use of the CRM.

SplendidCRM Live pricing is $10/user/month for Community Live, $20/user/month for Professional Live and $30/user/month for Enterprise Live, which is available at
