WESTPORT, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 18, 2005 -- PMAPS®, Proposal Software, Inc.'s innovative Proposal Management and Production System, will be demonstrated live at the Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) Conference to be held in Phoenix, Ariz., June 7 through 10, 2005.

PMAPS® received considerable acclaim when its Healthcare Edition was first presented as an industry case study at the APMP National Conference held in Orlando in 1997, and later when its Financial Edition was demonstrated at the APMP Southern Regional Conference in Atlanta in November 2004.

At the 2004 Southern Region APMP conference, Proposal Software Inc. CEO John A. Laurino addressed delegates who included consultants, proposal professionals, and marketing professionals of leading-edge companies who must continually respond to RFPs in order to stay competitive. In his presentation, Laurino outlined the significant impact of the programming language XML on future consultant and client initiated RFPs and RFIs. PMAPS®, with its Microsoft® .Net framework, is the only proposal software solution engineered to address these strategic changes today.

Proposal Software Inc.'s PMAPS® provides the "best in class" comprehensive proposal management platform in use by over 100 major companies worldwide. PMAPS® is an "industrial strength" application developed for large-scale organizations who must continually respond to a high volume of sophisticated, major account RFPs and Requests for Information (RFIs) under tight deadlines in order to maintain their sales momentum.

Originally developed in 1994 and now in its ninth generation, the data in PMAPS® can be synchronized with most other user software and database platforms including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, XML, SQL, DBF, and ASCII. It has also recently been integrated with Mimeo, the leading on-demand provider of documents that can be printed, assembled, finished and delivered overnight.
