London, UK (PRWEB) April 27, 2006
Business IT Online (http://www.businessitonline.com), the London-based Internet technology innovators of on-demand small business software, this week became the only online application provider in the UK to offer a fully-integrated suite of free small business software applications with free business advertising. Business IT Online provides users with multi-user access to cash flow management, contact management, team scheduling, invoicing and document management modules and businesses can also advertise to other users for free on the site.
Business IT Online has ushered in a new era of free anytime, anywhere computing for small business owners by utilising the much talked about software-as-a-service (SAAS) model. SAAS promises to eradicate potentially crippling IT costs, including server hardware and network infrastructure, data backup, IT service providers and expensive pre-packaged software licences. Business IT Online provides businesses with secure access to their business data via their Internet browser with many additional benefits including 24 / 7 multi-user access, cross-module integration and free upgrades with no local software installation, maintenance or backups required.
"Business IT Online empowers our users to stay in touch with their businesses on the move and frees up IT overheads for sales and marketing activities so they can focus on making more sales," said Mark O'Farrell, the co-founder. "The Internet has become an integral part of our every day lives and it is no different for a small business. The efficient management and sharing of business information, often from multiple locations, is extremely important and small businesses don't have a big IT budget. We are striving to make the small business owner's life much easier and this upgrade is another step along that exciting road."
Business IT Online features include:

Contacts can be uploaded to and downloaded from the system and emails can be set to remind you when to next get in touch with a contact.
