New Software Helps Busy Families Track and Manage Life's Details

Spiritworks Software, makers of many suites of productivity applications for businesses, has entered the personal software space with the introduction of its new release, "Family Activity & Expense Tracker." The company's newest offering helps busy families track and manage a wide range of activities and dates, create shopping lists, and much more.

McMinnville, OR, September 13, 2011 --( Spiritworks Software Inc. today announced the release of a new personal information management software program designed to help busy families track and manage the details of life. The new application, Family Activity & Expense Tracker, is the company's first product designed for consumers from a company that is known for a wide range of business productivity applications. The program is available for immediate download on the website.

For the first time, consumers have one convenient place to track and manage a wide variety of activities and financial information. Family Activity & Expense Tracker helps organize everything from tasks to contacts, appointments, shopping lists, vehicle information, personal income, expenses, tax information and much more.

"There were two things we had in mind with this software," said Garth Catterall-Heart, company owner and software designer. "We wanted to make record keeping easier for the average family or individual, and we wanted to save them time."

The new program, he explained, both simplifies life and saves time because people don't have to work with five or six different programs as they move from one activity to another in a typical day.

The software helps consumers organize expense payments of all kinds and makes record-keeping easy for work-related activity, such as travel deductions. It simplifies tracking vehicle expenses and servicing. Users can also maintain grocery shopping lists, customize them for each trip to the store and easily print out a hard copy to take along.

Tax information, which ties into the expense tracker, is available at the push of a button. Income and deposits are readily visible for any number of accounts. The program's schedule tracker makes it a breeze to manage appointments and deadlines. Tasks and contact information are also built into Family Expense & Activity Tracker. A Universal Calculator, meanwhile, is always accessible when working with numbers, measurements, currency conversions and more.

"The advantage of all this," said Catterall-Heart, "is that now you only need one piece of software to manage most aspects of your life. And, with life getting more complex all the time, simplicity like that is a good thing!"

The software, priced at just $69, is available for a free 10-day trial. More information and the product download are available at The application runs on both Mac and PC operating systems, and comes with free support.
