Brian Plen Software manufactures, sells and supports its proprietary software product, Menahel, to membership-based organisations, especially charities, clubs and religious institutions.

Menahel provides organisations with key contact management capabilities including: the keeping of membership records (including address & contact details); the carrying out of billing; the tracking of received monies; the receipt and sending of email and postal communications.

Menahel is a niche product which was developed because it became clear that existing databases and accounting packages such as Microsoft Access, Sage and Quickbooks did not fully meet the needs of our clients. Menahel can also be integrated with other mainstream programs used by clients.

The business was founded in 1989 by Brian Plen, who runs the business as a sole trader with a small team of developers and utilises a wide network of sub-contractors and contacts.
