PlaceFull Announces: Charity Giving Program

Join PlaceFull’s Charity Referral Program and help us reach our goal of $100,000 in donations this year! 

We are super excited to announce our new Charity Referral Program! Our customers have always been our greatest advocates, so we developed a program that rewards both the customer as well as a local charity of their choice.

PlaceFull supports small businesses and the communities in which they thrive. Our new Charity Referral Program not only rewards small business owners and their friends, but it also provides an opportunity for them to give back to their local communities. You can learn more about the program here.

With our new program, customers can earn up to $500 in Visa Gift Cards for themselves as well as up to a $500 donation to the charity of their choice.

Software for Small Businesses: Depth vs. Breadth

Whether you are shopping for small business software or developing it, there are thousands of choices in the market. Historically, Software as a Service (SaaS) was built one of two ways – as an industry specific depth solution or a more general breadth solution. As expected, the SaaS industry has evolved and with that there has been an emergence of a new kind of software – the hybrid solution.Breadth FeaturesApply to All

Hybrid solutions are disrupting the small business SaaS space and being built to serve the larger target market. These solutions include key depth features that are flexible and sufficient to meet the needs of the small business demographic and provide many other benefits that position them as the smartest and most economical choice in the market.

The PlaceFull team decided to tackle this topic in-depth and developed an easy to read white-paper to explain the emergence of hybrid software solutions for small businesses, why it is happening, and what it means for the industry. Click here to check it out, we hope you enjoy the read!
