The Projects

Galleon Software began developing and marketing our own consumer products in 1996. Since then we have developed Macintosh and Windows versions of PowerTicker, a specialized browser that downloads and processes financial information from the web, and eMerge, an e-mail merge application and contact manager.

In addition to our consumer products, the following is a sample of the projects we have worked on under contract to other companies.

SolcorpSolcorp is part of the EDS group of companies and is a leading developer of software for the insurance industry, with a customer base of 85 companies in over 20 countries. Because of this diversity, Solcorp hired Galleon Software to develop an online university to help them standardize their training programmes. Our implementation included a Windows NT backbone, J/RUN with JSP pages, and WebFair system integration.
