Appgen Accounting Software Now Imports QuickBooks® Data

New Import Utility Converts Both Master-File and Transaction Data

TACOMA, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 30, 2005 -- Aptus Corp., owners of Appgen Software Solutions, announced today the availability of data import functionality that brings accounting and financial data from Intuit's QuickBooks® application files into the Appgen database.

The updated import routines allow users to migrate data from Windows versions 2005 and prior of Intuit QuickBooks® applications into the Appgen MyBooks Professional system. Once the data is imported into the Appgen MyBooks system, it can then be used with either MyBooks Professional or the Appgen Custom Suite of applications. Because the Appgen applications run on Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and other operating platforms, this utility gives users the ability to retain their investment in valuable business data while they migrate their accounting and financial systems to Appgen systems running on any of the available Appgen-supported platforms. The import utility converts both master file data as well as transaction detail data.

"The availability of proven accounting and finance applications for small business using Linux is very limited, and options for the Mac seem to be diminishing," said Joanie Mann, Executive Vice President of Aptus. "With the ability to import QuickBooks® data with a one-click utility, users will find that their migration from QuickBooks® on Windows to MyBooks Professional on Linux, Windows or Mac is fast and comprehensive. Also, it is always exciting the first time a business owner sees his data in the Executive Dashboard."

"Small companies rarely realize the true value of their historic business data," said Errol Allahverdi, Development Manager for Appgen. "Providing a means to convert their business accounting data for use with our applications and database gives them the ongoing scalability and performance their growing businesses need and will demand in the future."
