PERRLA Complete is the Future

Not flying cars or robot butlers.

PERRLA was founded in 1998 to help students by taking the hassle out of formatting papers. We’ve done that and we’ll keep doing that - but we can do more. That is what PERRLA Complete is all about. We’re building next-generation tools to help students succeed. And the best part is, we’re just getting started!

Here are some of the many things we’ve added since we originally rolled out PERRLA Complete…

  • Paper Editor lets you type your entire paper online without Microsoft Word. Watch it in action!
  • Repeating Assignments Weekly reading? Create it once and you’re done.

  • Global Search to find anything with just one button.

Get help from start to finish with our Paper Planner

There’s more to writing a great paper than just formatting. We’ve created the Paper Planner to reduce your stress by guiding you step-by-step through the writing process. Just give us your start and due dates and we'll put together a comprehensive plan to help you finish your paper with time to spare.

Keep everything organized

In addition to your Paper Plan, you can set reminders to stay on track, compile your research notes, create your own list of to-do's, and create a detailed outline. Our Reference Database makes it easy to reuse your references in future papers.

Papers perfectly formatted

PERRLA Complete allows you to easily format papers that include references, citations, abstracts, etc. Write your entire paper online with our built-in word processor or export your papers to a Word document so you can work on them in Microsoft Word, Apple Pages, etc. In addition to this, we also include our traditional products PERRLA for APA and PERRLA for MLA to do these things directly inside Microsoft Word.

Manage Your Time

Keep track of more than just meetings

Any item that has a date - like assignments, to-do's, class meetings, events, papers, etc. - will automatically appear on your calendar.

Easily syncs with Google Calendar

If you use Google’s calendar or any calendar that syncs with Google, great! PERRLA Complete syncs with Google allowing you to see all of your events, to-do's, assignments, etc. everywhere.

  • Calendar – “Our Calendar shows all of your assignments, papers, exams, etc. color-coded by Class.

  • Google Calendar – “Our Calendar syncs with Google Calendar – and any calendar that can sync with Google Calendar. You’ll see your schoolwork on whatever calendar you are using.”

  • The Dashboard screen shows a bird’s-eye view of all your schoolwork. See what’s overdue, due this week, and upcoming.

  • Class Overview – “For each Class, there’s a Class Overview screen showing everything you need to know this week.”

  • Email screenshot – “If you want, we’ll send you a daily email and/or a weekly summary email, letting you know what’s coming up this week.”

Everything organized by Class

You can think of Classes as 'hubs' for all your reminders, assignments, to-do’s, notes, papers, references, and events. Tip: you can create a Class for charity work or personal projects. By doing so, you can create assignments, to-do's, and reminders for everything - allowing PERRLA Complete to help you with more than just school.

Break it down

How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. In PERRLA Complete you can break down a complex assignment or paper into a series of more manageable steps by creating associated To-Do’s. (Please, don’t eat elephants.)

Nothing falls through the cracks

Forget about forgetting the details. We can send you a daily or weekly summary of everything that you have on your plate - including your assignments, papers, to-do’s, and events. With our Reminders, you’ll never forget anything...just like that poor, poor elephant.*

*PERRLA, LLC does not condone or encourage the eating of elephants. Actually, to stay out of trouble, we don’t condone anything. Eat, sleep, breathe at your own discretion. We offer no judgement or opinions.

Take It with You

Native Android & iOS apps

Even though you can access PERRLA Complete from your phone/tablet browser, we know that native apps can be a lot easier to use on a mobile device. Version 1.0 focuses on productivity...calendar, assignments, to-do's, and reminders. We're currently working on version 2.0 which will include Papers and References.

You Get Everything

Everything we’ve got, that is

PERRLA Complete includes our super-cool web-based application for tracking assignments, writing papers, organizing your life, and more! We also include our esteemed PERRLA for APA and PERRLA for MLA Microsoft Word Add-In software, and native apps for both Android and iOS!
