At the 2009 Software Industry Conference in July, King Stairs Software founder Michael J Marshall was inducted into the Association of Shareware Professionals Hall of Fame for his work as ASP Ombudsman.
An ASP member since 1996, Michael has been the ASP Ombudsman since 1997 – one of the ASP’s longest-serving volunteers – and has assisted hundreds of consumers with queries and complaints.
“This Hall of Fame award came as a complete surprise,” commented Mr. Marshall. “I have been involved with the ASP for most of my professional life, and to be honored for my work this way is just wonderful.”
The Association of Shareware Professionals is an international trade organization for software developers and vendors dedicated to the promotion of the shareware (“try-before-you-buy”) concept.
