Cougar Mountain Announces New Denali Family of Products

Denali by Cougar Mountain to Give Businesses Affordable, Scalable Accounting

BOISE, ID -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 22, 2005 -- Organizations seeking powerful accounting software that will grow with their company will soon find an answer from Cougar Mountain Software. Cougar Mountain today announced the launch of Denali by Cougar Mountain™, a powerful new family of accounting products based on the latest 32-bit .NET and SQL technology from Microsoft®. Denali by Cougar Mountain was designed to accommodate an organization's growth of users, locations and data volumes at an affordable price.

Cougar Mountain Software currently publishes accounting, point of sale and fund accounting software. The first Denali family products will begin shipping in late July 2005.

According to Jim Stone, Chief Operating Officer of the software publishing company, "This new family of products provides the features of the high-end accounting programs at a very reasonable price. Our intention is to provide information that allows organizations to make knowledgeable, actionable decisions. The product allows organizations to tailor functionality while following generally accepted accounting practices."

Denali Point of Sale is unique in being truly integrated with back office accounting. The product's integration to Denali Inventory means retailers have instant access to up-to-date inventory information -- both at the POS register and at the order entry station in the back office. Denali can be deployed in a multi-location environment and scaled to a large number of users. Such scalability means the products will meet the requirements of growing businesses for many years. Denali provides virtually unlimited transaction volumes, plus the excellent multilevel security that is a hallmark of Cougar Mountain products.

Denali will ship with Crystal Reports® XI, the latest version of the award-winning reporting software from Business Objects.
