San Francisco, October 12, 2010 - Brightpearl, a rapidly-growing UK-based provider of cloud-based business software, today announces its official launch with Google Apps Marketplace in the US and Canada. Brightpearl’s end-to-end web-based platform is now available to US and Canadian customers offering complete support for their time zones and sales taxes, providing SMEs with a way to generate significant time savings in management and administration. 

“Our focus is on the needs of smaller, rapidly growing businesses that can save time and money by having a single, well-thought-out system to run their operations,” says Brightpearl co-founder and director Andrew Mulvenna. “We have developed a system that offers the most important capabilities in one place including CRM, accounting, and inventory management.  Now users will be able to login with a single username and password and move seamlessly across Brightpearl Google Apps, and other Marketplace Apps as well.”  

Brightpearl’s CEO, Salman Malik, comments, “Brightpearl’s launch in the Google Apps Marketplace complements our own global expansion to reach customers in the US and Canada. There is immediate benefit for users in these regions who will now be able to move seamlessly between our software and their Google applications”.
