Professional Software Modeling Tools Priced To Fit Any Budget.

Placitas, NM – June 1, 2000 – Excel Software today announced the immediate
availability of professional software modeling tools priced to fit the
budget constraints of any project. Thousands of developers on a limited
budget struggle to write code without the assistance of professional
software design tools to help guide the way. The MacA&D Standard and WinA&D
Standard editions offer a great solution. Normally priced at $495 each, a
promotional price of just $295 is available on the first license purchased
by any customer between June 1 and September 30. These tools bring core
capabilities from Excel Software’s industry leading MacA&D and WinA&D
products into the financial reach of all developers.

The Standard edition supports the three most popular diagrams used to
design software today, the process model, data model and class model.
Process models have been used for many years to document, explain and
understand the flow of information in a system. Yourdon/DeMarco or
Gane/Sarson style data flow diagrams form the cornerstone of structured
analysis and design methods. For decades, database designers have used data
models to lay out the entities and attributes in a database schema. Class
models are used in object-oriented design to illustrate class structure.
Many notations and methods are supported including UML (Unified Modeling
Language). The MacA&D and WinA&D Standard edition supports these models
plus a global data dictionary, integrated code browsing and text
specifications linked to diagram objects.

Excel Software has a 15-year history of providing software design tools to
thousands of developers in over 30 countries. Its expertise shows in the
software’s ease-of-use, integrated feature set, step-by-step tutorials and
printed user’s guide. General features include multiple level diagrams,
verification and balancing reports, extensive color support and editing
undo/redo commands.

The Standard edition of MacA&D and WinA&D saves design documents in a
common format that can be shared between Macintosh and Windows users.
Documents are compatible with Excel Software’s top of the line Desktop and
Developer editions making it easy for growing projects to trade up to the
world’s best software modeling tools.

MacA&D Standard 7.1 runs on all Macintosh computers with System 7.0 or
