Canada, September 1, 2001 - Foundation Software Inc., a developer of
consumer and business software, today officially announced its new name,
Slateboard Software Inc. "After seven years operating under the
same name, we were very disappointed to have to change, " said
Robert Kennedy, President & CEO. "Due to a bureaucratic error
beyond our control we could not hold the trademark therefore we were
forced to find a new one."
The new name comes after a year of consulting with customers and consumer
groups. Picked from literally hundreds of suggestions, Slateboard Software
Inc. becomes the company's official name as of today. "It is difficult
to completely change a company name however we are excited about the
new identity and look forward to reintroducing ourselves to our large
customer base," commented Kennedy.
Slateboard Software is a software development company that designs software
for the consumer and business market. Products include QuikCalc Mortgage
and Retire!, the personal financial planning software for Canadians
that the Globe and Mail called one of the best financial planning products.
