Quickly and easily store and manage beloved family memories and vital household information with access anywhere, anytime

PALM DESERT, Calif. and MALVERN, Pa., Feb. 28, 2011 –/PRNewswire/– (DEMO Spring 2011) — AboutOne, a secure online family management system that makes it easier for families to manage daily life, launched publicly today at DEMO (, the world-renowned launch platform for some of the most notable emerging technologies introduced over the past two decades. AboutOne provides a centralized location for moms and other family members to quickly and easily store and manage beloved family memories and vital household information, which they can then access anywhere, anytime–at home or away, from any web-enabled device.

“AboutOne was created out of my direct experiences as a mother of four children,” says Joanne Lang, CEO at AboutOne. “I had several personal experiences in which I needed immediate access to our critical household information, but after trying a number of tools on the market, I found that none adequately provided the assistance I needed in managing the daily details of home and work life from home or on the road. I finally decided to develop AboutOne in order to make it easier for busy moms like myself to manage family life, no matter where they are.”

After a successful beta launch in October 2010, AboutOne has nearly 4,000 users already on board. AboutOne is much more than a digital filing cabinet that fits in a pocket– it makes your information work for you and serves as an organizational GPS, guiding you along the path to organization. It carries the burden of saving essential family information and making it easily accessible while on-the-go for 82.8 million busy moms in the US (according to a 2008 Census Bureau study –
