Ripley, United Kingdom – Arten Science is pleased to announce permanently reduced prices for ContaxCRM Version 3. This version of their popular software, first launched in January 2012, allows individuals and companies to optimise the management of their relationships by building a detailed contact history of customers, suppliers, prospects, members, and other contacts. Written and designed in the United Kingdom by Steven Cholerton and published by Arten Science Limited, ContaxCRM Standard is now available for only £29 whereas ContaxCRM Premium is now £49.

It’s a small price to pay for an ingenious program that lets customers capture, store, interact, communicate, and manage all of their interactions, be they with customers, prospects, suppliers, members, personal, network, or even competitors. So, as a single user program it’s ideal for graphic designers, web developers, consultants, electricians – any small business or charity managing multiple contacts. The multi-user edition can grow with businesses to support hundreds of users. What’s more, ContaxCRM works with Windows computers and Apple Macs or even a mixture of both.

Arten Science prides itself on offering a CRM solution that stands out from the crowd. Users get a choice of where data is kept, on the computer, on the network, or in the cloud. Customers pay only once, rather than monthly, and the solution runs natively on the computer, rather than in a browser. ContaxCRM Version 3 requires an Intel Mac running OSX 10.5 or a PC running Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8.

ContaxCRM is simple and efficient to use and secure. It works with Apple Mail, iCal, and Outlook to provide a seamless link between users’ contacts, email, and related calendar entries. The solution can automatically or selectively save both sent and received emails to an individual contact record. The interface retains a clean, simple, and functional design that appeals to users at all levels. On top of all this, it uses up to 384 bit Blowfish encryption as standard.

The power and ease of use of R10BatchMail and R10Cipher are built into ContaxCRM Version 3 giving powerful bulk email and encryption/security. ContaxCRM features powerful document management features as standard, to enable users to lock documents away securely. When used in conjunction with SMSRelay also from Arten Science, ContaxCRM becomes a powerful and flexible text messaging solution.

The success of ContaxCRM is demonstrated through excellent customer feedback. Matt Kavanagh, Technical Support Manager, of Perfect Colours, a printing company said, ‘[We have] been using ContaxCRM to keep track of technical support contact with customers for repairs, warranties, and call-outs for the past six months and it has transformed our engineers’ access to information. I would recommend it to any small business wanting to share information across their company, particularly given the low entry-level cost and the cross-platform nature of the software.’

Kaye Booth of Social Myna Ltd, social media consultants, said of ContaxCRM and the owner of Arten Science, Steve Cholerton, ‘I…purchased the fabulous ContaxCRM which has proved invaluable for my business. Steve helped me from installation through to using the CRM effectively as a tailored business tool. Always keen to offer support and further advice I would highly recommend Steve and his Mac/Windows products.’
