Cogent QC Systems Migrate to .NET

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

San Francisco, CA – March 8, 2005 – Cogent Economics, Inc., the leading developer of loan quality control and compliance tools for the financial services industry, today announced the migration of its popular CogentQC suite of applications to Microsoft’s .NET platform.

“This migration is a fundamental shift – we are rewriting the code from scratch in C#,” said Cogent’s Chief Software Architect, Bob Wong. “This will enable a lot of new functionality. Plus it will enable more rapid development and, through the .NET framework, ease the connectivity to SQL databases and third party service providers.”

In addition to structural changes, users of CogentQC systems will notice significant improvements in the user interface; a new drag-and-drop Report Designer tool with graphing capabilities; a new Sampling Wizard that simplifies complex sampling strategies; and generally faster processing due to streamlined code and newer technology.
