Seattle, WA (November 1, 2007) - The developers of the Datatune Extranet have announced a free version of the the acclaimed Extranet product designed to help independent consultants & small businesses grow their business. Now it is possible for small businesses who are building their business to have access to the software required to track time, customers, vendors, quotes, projects and many other functional areas of their business without up front or recurring costs.

Small businesses who are serious about growing their business traditionally invest in a CRM or ERP applications, hoping that the business efficiencies gained from this software would justify the expense. Alternatively, small businesses with no budged for back-office software employ dozens of spreadsheets, contact management applications and e-mail in an attempt to manage the overwhelming number of moving parts in a typical business.
