What We're About
We know how overwhelming it can be to try to juggle school, work,
and home. We’ve done it ourselves. Students who use our software have the best chance
of success in school, and we like knowing that.
Being There for You
We make it easy for students to contact us. From 10am until
10pm, 7 days a week, our Customer Support Team is standing by to help you. Some
companies talk about support and it’s all talk, but we’re kind of fanatical about
Having Fun While Doing Both
We take our work seriously, but we also
take our fun seriously, too. No, seriously. Do you know another company that has
created a fictitious revolutionary character, has a unicorn for a mascot, and has
even made a sock puppet musical? We promise to give you not only the best student
software around, but to also try and put a smile on your face while doing it.
PERRLA was first developed in 1998 when our founder, Gary McGuire, was attending Vanderbilt University. Gary had to write a lot of APA papers for his Nursing degree and his PERRLA program made it easier. A couple of Gary's nursing instructors told him he should put his formatting tool on the Internet to help other students. That was the beginning of PERRLA, LLC.
- Since 1998, the company has grown and we’ve released countless updates.
- We added the MLA format in 2010.
- In 2013, we released PERRLA Online, our web-based application that allows students to write papers anywhere in the world, using only a web browser. PERRLA Online also includes tools to manage Classes, Assignments, To-Do’s, etc.
- With each semester, we continue to work on PERRLA, adding features to help students with the challenges of attending school in the 21st Century.
More than 500,000 students have put their faith in us so far… and we’re helping many new students each semester.
We hope you will recognize that this is more than a business for us. We are working hard on new (and existing) products but our goal - after all these years - is still the same... to help people achieve their dreams through success in school.
