SplendidCRM Software Closes the Gap

Raleigh, NC (January 24, 2006) -- SplendidCRM Software, Inc. has released the beta 2 of SplendidCRM 1.0, a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application licensed in part under the SugarCRM Public License.

Beta 2 allows businesses both to add custom fields and to modify each field layout to include the custom fields. Also new is a terminology manager that allows online editing of every label as well as the ability to import language packs originally written for SugarCRM. “These new features significantly close the gap between SplendidCRM and the product from which it was inspired,” said Paul Rony, founder of SplendidCRM Software.

"The ability to add custom fields and edit any layout makes it a breeze to tailor SplendidCRM exactly to our needs," exclaimed David Williams, an Australian I.T. consultant and author.

"No two companies are exactly alike. With SplendidCRM's advanced custom field and layout features we can build our business, instead of our CRM,” commented Brooks Reese, President & CEO, WaterLogistics, Inc.

"An easy-to-use customization tool allows more precise and effective management of customers", said Norberto Enomoto, Technology Manager of HighWeb Tecnologia of Brazil. HighWeb Tecnologia is a company focused on CRM Consultancy and Software for the Brazilian Market.

Microsoft Certified Partner

SplendidCRM Software is also proud to announce that it has become a Microsoft Certified Partner. As a Microsoft Certified Partner, SplendidCRM Software has demonstrated expertise with Microsoft technologies and has proven its ability to meet customer needs. “We now have access to a wealth of information regarding new technologies such as Project Elixir and WinFX Workflow,” added Mr. Rony.

The beta 2 release of SplendidCRM 1.0 is available today, and the final release is expected in Q1 2006. Licensed versions range in price from $120 to $240 per user and include additional source code, patches, and minor upgrades.
