Organize and Better Manage Your Home, Family and Schedule this New Year with the Newly-Enhanced Home Concierge Lifestyle Management Software for Busy Homeowners

New Functionalities Enable Users to Integrate Web-based Home Concierge into Popular Calendar and Email Programs, and Search for Prescreened Local Maintenance Vendors

CHICAGO -- New Year resolutions that include becoming better organized will be bolstered by BCB Technologies' newly-enhanced Home Concierge lifestyle management software that simplifies the day-to-day responsibilities of busy homeowners. Because it's Web-based, Home Concierge enables homeowners to have anytime access to their important home and personal information, schedule home maintenance tasks, create household checklists, access contacts, and securely store information regarding insurance policies, wills and medical details.

Now with new functionalities designed to integrate Home Concierge with popular calendar, email and PDA programs, it's even easier for homeowners to manage their household and organize their time and activities.

"Everyone is so busy with family, work and other daily activities that being organized is an exhausting challenge; Home Concierge makes this challenge manageable because it gives homeowners a personalized, secure place to store information and keep track of details such as daily appointments, events, maintenance tasks and contacts," said Jolynn Blair, President of BCB Technologies. "We've added new technology enhancements to make Home Concierge seamlessly integrate with email programs and handheld PDAs so homeowners can stay on top of their household checklists and calendars; Home Concierge simplifies your life."

Home Concierge new enhancements include:

* Export calendar entries from Home Concierge to Microsoft Outlook

* Send reminders to a handheld PDA

* Email Home Concierge pages including checklists and weekly calendar view

* Stay ahead of warranty expirations by setting reminders within the Document Directory of Home Concierge. For example, enter a warranty expiration date under House Inventory and set a reminder alarm before a warranty expires.

* Pull calendar appointments into a checklist to make long-range plans. For example, gather important appointments over the next few months and create a checklist for planning purposes.

Additionally, BCB Technologies has partnered with ServiceMagic, the Golden, Colorado-based company that connects homeowners with local service professionals. Home Concierge users can now search for prescreened local service vendors by simply clicking on the maintenance tab in their Home Concierge.

"ServiceMagic and Home Concierge share the same goal - to make home maintenance tasks simple to manage - and by combining our services we believe homeowners will find locating professional residential contractors quite easy and effortless," said Craig Smith, Senior Vice President, ServiceMagic Consumer Division. "ServiceMagic is pleased to partner with Home Concierge in connecting local professional contractors with tech-savvy homeowners."
