"Appgen Business Software, Inc. (Hauppauge, NY) announced today the signing of an agreement with Reilly Technologies, L.L.C. (Richmond, VA) by which Appgen acquired exclusive marketing and distribution rights to Moneydance, "the most Quicken-like" finance software as reported in a review published in the August 2000 issue of Linux Journal. Appgen, a leader in Linux-native general business and accounting applications, is also a leader in complete cross-platform solutions sold to the SMB market through the VAR channel. According to Appgen president and CEO Jim Kelly, "This is Appgen's first personal finance product and it's the first product that we will market directly to the general public. It is terrifically well-designed and it will open up whole new market channels for the company."

"Moneydance is a Java-based application that makes management of personal finances fast and easy. Since Moneydance is built upon Java technology it will run on virtually any operating system, including Linux, FreeBSD, OS/2, Solaris, MacOS, and Windows. In addition, on operating systems such as Linux, OS/2, and FreeBSD, there is no serious competition for personal finance software despite the fact that these systems have tens of millions of users. Moneydance is also perfect for use on Internet appliances and emerging technologies such as the Qubit WebTablet, and Java Internet Phone."
