Here at Simply XML, we all share the values of creating and licensing high quality software products at a great price. We are having so much fun building this company from our vision of years ago when we first designed Content Mapper. We love demonstrating the product and talking to people about where they are in the adoption of this exciting new technology. We believe in what we're doing and we are passionate about helping others get all the benefits of XML. It is so rewarding to see XML move to the next level.
