PreLien2Lien Online Is The Future

Thirty percent of current customers using software as a service (SaaS) solution.

Companies aggressively converting to cloud based version.
In early 2016 our first online version of PreLien2Lien (www.pl2l.com/demo) was released for early adopters. Version 2.0 was released in July 2016, with a single screen data entry design users have greatly enjoyed. Currently two (2) companies per day on average are switching to the new version, with thirty (30) percent now using PreLien2Lien Online.

Companies are asking their employees to multitask.
People across multiple departments are sharing in the workload for simple sales, customer service, accounting and legal tasks. “Bob Smith”, Sales Manager, can logon to PreLien2Lien to enter basic information for a 1st notice. “Mary Jones”, Accounts Receivable Manager can logon and print a Conditional Waiver And Release Upon Progress notice to attach to an invoice to incentivize payment. And “Brandon Johnson”, Chief Legal Officer, can logon to PreLien2Lien to print a Construction Lien to record. Companies of various sizes can share one or more user licenses instead of installing software on multiple PC’s in multiple departments.

People increasingly don’t want to install software every year.
People are increasingly using their large cell phones for traditional computer business tasks. At times they are alternating from reading a book on a tablet to surfing the web. Someone could use their cell phone or tablet to enter project information into PreLien2Lien Online or even print notices to a Bluetooth enabled printer.

All data entry on one screen.
It was not that long ago that screen sizes and resolution prevented a large amount of data entry to occur on one screen. Now, monitors for desktop PC’s are large, cell phones and tablets let you magnify portions of a screen, and graphical user interface (GUI) design promotes ease of use on one screen so that there are not tabs to click for secondary data entry.

Annual subscription pricing remains the same for PreLien2Lien Online.
Unlike competitors who raise the cost of their subscriptions every year, PreLien2Lien has had only one small price increase in twelve (12) years. Annual Subscription pricing for PreLien2Lien Online will remain frozen at $220 (One-State), $275 (Regional) and $330 (USA). Customers who will not make the change to the cloud based version will see a $70- $80 price increase in 2018.

Redesign of software based PreLien2Lien will have data entry on one screen.
April will be our twelfth anniversary of acquiring PreLien2Lien from SIERRA PHOENIX. The tabbed data entry process has not changed much since the program’s original inception in 1996. But like the online version, the software based PreLien2Lien version will have a major (GUI) redesign that will eliminate the tabs in lieu of a single data entry screen design.
