RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. -- New Sales Force Automation (SFA) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Application Enables Smart Online Customers to Easily Create, Manage and Securely Maintain their Sales and Customers Information

Smart Online, Inc. (SOLN), a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) for the small business (SB) market, today announced the release of its new Web-based Sales Force Automation (SFA) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) application. Smart Online's easy-to-use, comprehensive SFA/CRM application is now included as part of the subscription to Smart Online's suite of applications which includes Human Resource Management, Accounting, Calendar, Contacts, and many more tools for the small businesses that want to easily and securely manage their money, customers, and employees.

Smart Online's SFA/CRM application gives customers the capability to manage their prospects and customers while working on their other applications for finance and human resources. Smart Online delivers to its customers all their business applications using a Web browser, eliminating the cost and difficulties of traditional software.

"Small businesses are often challenged with managing their prospects and customers as many lack the financial resources, technical expertise and time required to set up and use traditional SFA/CRM software," said Michael Nouri, president & CEO, Smart Online, Inc. "Smart Online's new Software-as-a-Service SFA/CRM application includes an easy-to-use interface along with the features to assist small business owners in their daily sales and customer support activity. In addition to SFA/CRM, our customers have access to our other applications such as our Human Resource Center, Accounting, Calendar, and Contacts to give them full visibility and control of their customer, financial and business data."

"Salesforce.com has pioneered the SFA/CRM Software-as-a-Service market for the enterprise sector, and now Smart Online has enabled small businesses to have a version of the SFA/CRM Software-as-a-Service suitable for small businesses, plus Human Resource Management, Accounting, Calendar, Contacts and more for one low monthly price," said Tim Bajarin, president, Creative Strategies.

Smart Online's new SFA/CRM application is now available on www.smartonline.com as part of its monthly subscription of $49.95 which includes access for the first five users and provides unlimited access to its full suite of small business applications. Smart Online plans to integrate the SFA/CRM application into the Websites of our private label syndication partners later this year. The Company has already integrated those features of the existing SFA/CRM application that it believes are most useful to small businesses, and has focused on making the application easier to use. The new SFA/CRM application includes the following features and functionality:
