Functionality includes the Merlin marketing, sales, front office, property management and back office modules, stand alone exchange facility and website integration. This form of software as a service (SaaS) helps businesses become more efficient and productive and makes bringing new products and services to market faster and easier.

We look forward to the benefits that will be forthcoming from the Merlin implementation.”
Speaking about the new partnership Mike Pnematicatos, chief architect at Merlin Software, said: “It's not every day that a client of the stature of Karma Royal Group comes along (although I must say that we have had a few big names, some not yet announced, accept us as their software partner in recent times). We are particularly excited to be able to work with Karma Royal in the coming months and introduce them to the many excellent features and benefits that Merlin Software and cloud computing have to offer.”
