A powerful, proven tool to run your business your way.

Don’t let software run your business - let your business intelligence run your software YOUR way!

ProSTART begins as a full-featured, complete business management system that is ready to use. From there, you may want to customize it for your unique business needs, and we can help with that, too!


ProSTART gets you up and running 2-3 times faster and with less development cost than Salesforce, Oracle or other similar “build-from-scratch” database management systems. Its robust design has a complete set of pre-developed database modules that accelerate the development and deployment process. Each module is ready to go “as is,” or with minor customizations for your unique business.
