Daylite 3 Released With New Productivity Suite and Offers Command-and-Control of Mac Businesses via Apple Mail

Production Version of Productivity Management Software Available Now

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 30, 2006 -- The newest version of Marketcircle Inc.'s Mac productivity management software is now available in a new Daylite 3 Productivity Suite that bundles Daylite 3 with Marketcircle's Daylite Mail Integration Module (DMI 2.0) for US $189. Sold separately, Daylite 3 retails for US $149 and DMI 2.0 retails for US $49. New customers can try the software free for 30 days at www.marketcircle.com.

Designed for the unique needs of Mac-based businesses of 1-50 people, Daylite 3 is the latest version of Marketcircle's award winning productivity management software and the only Mac-based productivity management application that helps an organization at every stage of the business cycle. From delivery projects to identifying and qualifying opportunities, Daylite 3 is a powerful resource for tracking and managing business activities and outcomes.

Daylite 3's time-saving features include shared calendars and meetings, project and activity delegation, multiple pipelines for projects and opportunities, and sophisticated offline capabilities. Daylite 3 also represents a bottom-up overhaul of the previous Daylite 1.9 user interface to make productivity concepts more accessible and reduce the number of clicks to get work done. The new version also offers a new report writer in addition to the command-and-control email functionality via DMI 2.0. Daylite 3 runs seamlessly on Apple's new generation of Intel-based Macs as well as previous models that rely on the PowerPC microprocessor.

With Daylite 3's powerful multi-linking capabilities, DMI 2.0 allows you to fully exploit the sophistication of Apple Mail. Within Mail you can create and delegate new projects and opportunities, add new Daylite 3 contacts, create tasks with reminders, and automatically link and store the contents of one or more emails to contacts, projects, and opportunities. New capabilities include email search in Daylite 3 from within Apple Mail, and merging a contact opportunity or project with a Daylite 3 letter template that in turn inserts text directly into an email window.

Daylite 3's new report writer offers access to all database information within the application. The report writer mixes "smartlist" criteria with raw SQL, basic scripting, and mathematical expressions to generate PDF reports that support decision-making.

"Many people in Mac businesses spend a significant portion of their day using Mail," said Alykhan Jetha, President and CEO of Marketcircle. "In addition to the priority of a simplified interface, our customers wanted us to eliminate application switching between Daylite and Apple Mail, which we've done, and taken a step further by offering users command-and-control business productivity with the Daylite 3 Productivity Suite."

Jetha said another key request from the Daylite community was a report writer that allows customers to create their own customizable reports, envelopes, labels, and more based on information stored in the Daylite database. Now they can use Daylite 3's easy drag-and-drop interface.

Daylite 3 is available for US $149 per seat, and existing users can upgrade for US $79 per seat. Customers who have purchased Daylite after Dec 1, 2005 will receive a free upgrade to Daylite 3.
