    GERMANTOWN, Tenn., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 uMonitor, Inc., one of the leading information aggregators has unveiled
 SIMP(TM) for information aggregation.  uMonitor, Inc. recognized a need for
 XML based information aggregation from various sources and delivery of
 aggregated information to partners who want to create value-added services.
 This is the latest development in uMonitor's quest to simplify the management
 and control of Internet information leading to improved productivity for the
 user.
     While there are application specific protocols such as OFX, IFX and QIF
 for financial data, and various XML schemas for industry specific applications
 there does not exist a standard protocol for a variety of information being
 gathered by the aggregation industry.  uMonitor has defined a Simple
 Information Management Protocol (SIMP(TM)) -- an XML-based protocol for
 the purpose of diverse information aggregation and distribution.  SIMP(TM)
 derives from existing XML-based schemas and expand upon them to include the
 secure exchange of information over the Internet and private networks among
 uMonitor information source and information clients.  The information being
 exchanged may be of various types ranging from financial account information
 like banks, brokerages, or credit cards to other types of information like
 flight schedules, shipment tracking, schedules, contracts, email, news and
 weather, etc.  SIMP(TM) also includes the distribution of information
 aggregated by uMonitor to information clients who use aggregated information
 to create other services such as financial portfolio analysis.
     "The SIMP(TM) Protocol is an extendable, comprehensive protocol which
 supports, and can be expanded, to handle all types of data and information
 exchanges," said Dinesh Sheth, Founder, CEO and President, uMonitor, Inc.
 "SIMP(TM) is a highly-efficient method of exchanging data while simplifying
 the implementation process in a highly-secure manner."
     uMonitor plans to license the SIMP(TM) Protocol to information services
 and clients.  uMonitor will offer a set of development tools, libraries and
 exchange servers to facilitate the flow of information through the aggregation
 network.  uMonitor sees new frontiers opening with this new aggregation
 network.
