"Java-based software, online banking ASP development to be focus of new company."

"Appgen Business Software, Inc., a leader in cross-platform business software, announced today the formation of a new sister company, Appgen Personal Software, LLC. Based in Richmond, Virginia, this new company will develop Java-based personal software products to be sold and supported by Appgen from its headquarters on Long Island. The new company will focus on personal financial management software, online banking, and ASP development under the direction of Chief Technology Officer, Sean Reilly, creator of AppgenÆ Moneydance, the company's universal personal financial management application. Jim Kelly, President and CEO of Appgen Business Software also heads the new company. "The formation of a new sister company with Sean Reilly in charge of technology builds on our strong background in cross-platform general business and accounting software for Linux, Unix, and Windows computing environments," said Jim Kelly. "Our goal is to provide everyone with the software they need now, and then provide them with an easy path to anywhere they may want to go. If, for example, someone likes Appgen Moneydance because it is a particularly powerful personal finance manager, they will also find that our business solutions are just as flexible, and even more powerful. Then, if they decide that they prefer an ASP solution, our software can go there, too."
