Software allows users to plan for their future by projecting cash flow

OTTAWA, Canada, May 28, 2007 - Slateboard Software Inc., a developer of consumer and business software applications, today announced the release of Retire! Income Needs Analyzer. "Every one plans to retire but we all worry about whether or not we can afford it," said Robert Kennedy, President and CEO of Slateboard Software. "We hear numbers like one or two million dollars being needed but as many financial planners will tell you, cash flow is the key." Retire! Income Needs Analyzer allows users to input their various projected expenses, income sources and cashable savings and then instantly project their future cash flow requirements. Retire! will immediately identify, down to the day, any times where your expenses will out strip your income or savings. This allows the user to quickly see whether their retirement plans are realistic and make adjustments as necessary.

"Retire! allows the user to input expenses such as I have a telephone bill due every month that is currently $100 and that will increase every year by about 3% and never ends", explained Kennedy. "This is about the extent that most other tools go but Retire! takes that further. With Retire! you can say: My house needs a new roof every 15 years that will cost me $20K or I need a new car every 8 years that will cost me $300 a month for four years. Retire! is extremely flexible and even allows you to enter your own expense items, not be pigeon-holed into what we thought they might be.

Retire! comes in four editions. The Home Edition, at $39.95 allows you to create up to 5 income needs plans and net worth calculations. The Plus! Edition, at $69.95, adds QuikCalc's Amortization Schedules Plus!, Payment Grids (both limited to 5 stored schedules), the Solve for Missing Number Calculator and dozens of Bonus Calculators. These editions are aimed at the consumer market. The Premium Edition lifts the 5 plan limit and removes the Slateboard branding from the Reports. The Office Edition, which adds multi-user capability and a client management module, is targeted at the financial planning professional. Users can upgrade between any edition for the price difference if they decide they need the additional features.
