Softwares Ltd (WSL), a product based, Indian Software
Company, launched a unique package 'My Home' in
Indian market in a Press Conference held here at Hyderabad
on 12th March 2001. It is a unique global product never
before launched in home segment. Targeted at the families
of the new millennium, 'My Home' enables organizing family
affairs, accounts, asset management as well as various
family data. With the software made available now, one
can run the household affairs far more efficiently than
ever, says Sanjay Sonawani, Chairman of WSL.
"Though there were so many business softwares
flooding the market, the home segment was neglected by
the IT World. Personal Computers installed at home had
little utility, as they couldn't provide any help in managing
day-to-day home affairs. Taking this into consideration
and in accordance with the needs of the modern families
WSL decided to make this software,'' explained Mr.
Sonawani, while talking about the story behind 'My Home'.
Home' has several features like budgeting, accounting,
maintaining virtual pass books, tracking family assets,
balance sheets, diaries, memoir, e-mails, reminders, preserving
family audio-video albums, data management on family members
such as education, medical, car maintenance as well as
on friends and relatives etc.
'My Home', which was developed in 6 months time by 16
software professionals has several other advantages. "We
developed the product to make ordinary housewives IT prone,
who are otherwise computer illiterates. To use 'My Home'
one doesn't require any formal knowledge of computers.
An ordinary woman with basic education can use it",
says Anil Roy, Vice President, Corporate Communications
According to figures available, approximately 5.7 million
Personal Computers are there in India, of which 20 per
cent being in home segment. According to Mr. Anil Roy,
"Usage of PCs in home segment is on the rise as
prices are getting more and more affordable by the day.
And this trend is encouraging more families to go for
them. This augurs good potential for the product in the
months to come."
the scope of 'My Home' is large, we priced the product
at Rs 350, which is cheaper than even a Music CD. Pricing
has been done in order to make the product affordable
for every PC user as well as to stop piracy,"
added Mr Sonawani.

units in a months time even before its formal launch.
We plan to sell over a lakh CDs in this year,"
