Proto Software, Inc. Announces Release of Proto Individual


New York, NY (PRWEB) December 8, 2006

Proto Software, Inc. announced today the release of Proto Individual, a toolkit that enables users to build and share custom applications. Proto works by integrating local files, desktop software and internet services. Users of all levels can quickly and easily build powerful tools in no time. Non-programmers can use Proto’s visual building environment to construct applications using an intuitive drag and drop system, while more advanced users can utilize Microsoft Visual Basic Applications IDE and Adobe Flash to build tools with greater flexibility and depth. Whether used to build a tool to link your Outlook contacts to Yahoo! Maps or a custom portfolio dashboard, Proto generates highly functional and reusable applications that offer a remarkable advantage for individuals looking to maximize their time, increase their productivity and create turn-key solutions to solve complex problems. Available at, Proto Individual is free for personal, non-commercial use.

“We are very excited about the release of Proto Individual. There are a number of great tools out there that let users build custom apps on the web but we had not seen a tool that could effectively build deep applications that integrate data on the user’s desktop, including analytics and applications, with web services. Proto addresses this issue and allows users to build richer custom business applications. We hope that the introduction of this product will help fill this void and we’re eager to see the dynamic applications that are built as a result,” said Proto’s Co-Founder and Vice-President of Marketing, Jeb Boniakowski.

Proto hopes that users will find Proto Individual incredibly useful in their day-to-day lives. In order to ensure that they receive the best possible support, they have developed a number of online resources including various in-depth tutorials, a forum, a blog and a support network to help answer any questions that may arise. In addition, Proto staff members and current users have developed an application gallery from which any Proto user can download ready-made components for use ‘as is’ or as part of their own custom application.

“Our goal was to create something truly intuitive and flexible; something that requires a little bit of time but produces maximum output. Equally important to us was the creation of a tool that could cope with the reality that problems occur and variables change all the time. In my former life on a trading floor, I was constantly frustrated by having to use applications that would break whenever one component changed or needed to be updated. Proto Individual was built with this specific concern in mind, so while all the components are interlinked, they can easily be removed or modified to create intelligent, reusable applications. I am incredibly pleased with our latest release and look forward to the new developments ahead,” said Proto’s CEO, Byron Binkley.

Proto Individual represents a successful milestone for Proto, a young company looking to create innovative and useful technologies that can be used across all industries. The company anticipates that its latest release will be very well received among current users and new users eager to find meaningful solutions to their problems. Available for free, Proto hopes individuals we begin to familiarize themselves with the endless capabilities and substantial benefits that Proto has to offer.
