Coghead enables businesses to create, customize and/or use real, multi-user business apps in an easy, cost-effective way. Since Coghead is 100% web-based, employees, customers and business partners can use the apps from anywhere there’s an Internet connection.

To help people get started, Coghead has just announced “Business Essentials”—a suite of simple, pre-built applications that every small business needs. Business Essentials includes Company Directory, Basic Project Manager, Lead Manager, Recruiting Manager, PTO (Paid Time Off) Tracker, Asset Tracker, and dashboard applications that enables you to manage your business.

All the apps work together (like cogs), and you can customize them to suit your business. You can try Business Essentials here for free for thirty days. After thirty days, the cost is $49/mo for 5 users and $10/mo per user thereafter.
