When developing AboutOne, Lang, a former SAP Labs executive, capitalized on her experience with cloud technology. She’d seen how cloud computing and business software allowed businesses to eliminate mundane tasks and gain new levels of efficiency and security, and she wanted to bring those same benefits to families. Cloud computing is increasingly considered a simple yet effective means for families to manage information, as evidenced by the popularity of companies like Mint, ZipList, and other Web-based apps. With the enthusiastic market response to the public release of its beta product, AboutOne has been successful in its bid to be the global de-facto standard for Family Management Systems.
"As a frequent traveler and former expat, I experienced firsthand the need to access my household information and documents when I was away from home," says Lang. "Everyone knows it’s prudent to safeguard critical data and documents in case of disaster, yet too few of us actually follow the best practices for doing this. Instead we keep silos of this data in paper files or on home PCs, often failing to perform regular backups. With AboutOne, my goal was to create a tool, accessible anywhere, that expertly handles data security so our customers don’t have to. I want our customers to know that no matter what happens, they’ll be able to access their household information whenever they need it."
AboutOne’s ability to provide a highly secure location where customers can quickly and easily access household information, from any computer or cell phone with Internet access, holds great appeal to professional organizers like NAPO Board Member Regina Lark: "Although I don’t mean to scare my clients when I talk about preparedness, being organized also means being ready for disaster. AboutOne gives you everything you need to preserve family memories and important household information."
Lang wants to provide expatriates everywhere with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their household information is safely stored and readily accessible.
