Lincoln, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 04, 2012 -- Kaboodle, the complete cloud-based marketing collaboration platform that liberates and empowers marketers, launches today.
Kaboodle launches after more than two years in development. It answers the need for an easy-to-use tool that is fast, flexible, scalable and accessible anytime, anywhere.
With Kaboodle, marketers can plan, track, communicate, collaborate, share and manage campaigns from initial concept to completion. It is now available to trial for free at http://www.kaboodlehq.com.
Kaboodle's flexibility comes from the way information is organized. It has been designed to support the way marketing campaigns are structured across integrated channels, with a visible hierarchy structure that encourages clarity and flow. Marketing teams can use it to reflect the way they work and join forces in a way that is not possible with other tools.
The powerful team workspace introduces 'purposeful collaboration', which ensures the most productive review, annotation and approval of all campaign materials on-time, online and with ease.
With Kaboodle, marketers are free for the first time to develop campaigns with the control points they need. It offers visibility from the big picture down to the detail, a flexible roadmap that helps marketers to deliver better business outcomes.
Kaboodle differs from traditional marketing management and support tools because it has been built by marketers for marketers. Kaboodle is cloud-based so you just work through your favourite browser. It is so simple to use; marketers just sign up and go.
There is no need for months of implementation time or training, and no need to involve IT departments. What's more, Kaboodle is accessible on any device - from PC, Mac, iPad or smartphone and on all major browsers.

Campaign Hierarchy - creates content control, context, clarity and flow with the flexibility that ensures you work the way you want to.

Kevin Freedman, Kaboodle CEO, says: "We want Kaboodle to be the de facto global collaboration platform for marketers, one that liberates and empowers them. Kaboodle facilitates getting work done. That's the same for every team member, whether they are in-house or outside in the agencies.
"Marketing is a challenging profession because it requires supreme creativity to conceive and develop great ideas, while at the same time demanding the discipline to complete campaigns on time by managing masses of detailed and evolving information.
"Kaboodle is the must-have tool for marketers and allows them to focus on marketing, rather than worrying about admin and management. It's a product that doesn't get in the way of your work."
