Plunet BusinessManager

Plunet BusinessManager offers translation companies a powerful software solution that enables them to handle their order processing, partner management, data, and document management on a single platform.

The system has two key features:

Adaptability

The software, i.e., the system processes, allow flexible customization to individual company procedures and different company sizes.

Flexibility

The software can be used as as a client-server application on a local network or via the Internet. This means that both office and field/freelance/tele workers have access to all company data and functions - any time, anywhere (providing of course that the appropriate access rights are assigned).
