About IGG

IGG Software, Inc. is a small company based in Putney, Vermont, USA.

Who We Are

We are real people who happen to make software.

We're a lot like you.

We're Mac users. We like to go outside on sunny days. We have kids and mortgages and dogs. We are real people who happen to make software. It's creative, it's fun, and it can be really, really hard. Some days we feel pretty smart, but we never have all the answers. And when everything goes right, we get to help people like ourselves live a little bit better. That feels pretty good.

What We Do

We write applications for Macs and Apple mobile devices.

We try to help folks like us manage our paychecks, our bills, and our futures.

We write applications for Macs and Apple mobile devices. We love our gadgets, but we love our families even more. So we try to help folks like us manage our paychecks and our bills and our future. We also spend more hours than anything else here doing something important: communicating with our users. That means solving your problems, listening to your comments, learning new things or hearing great ideas. It also means we develop our apps in a kind of partnership with you: people who buy them, use them, depend on them, and sometimes, even love them.

Where We Work

IGG Software, Inc. is a small company based in Putney, Vermont.

We work virtually.

IGG Software, Inc. is a small company based in Putney, Vermont. It was started by Ian G. Gillespie, so his initials became its name. Ian is a real person, too, even if we hardly see him. We work virtually. That means we use everyday tools like email and chat to communicate among ourselves or with partners and customers, without coming in to an office. Instead, we are spread across Vermont, across the country, or occasionally abroad. No commuting cuts our carbon output, which is nice, but it also means we are a happy, motivated bunch. We wake up, plug in, and rock out.

Nancy Libby

It's a toss-up: does she spend more time running in the Vermont woods or sitting in front of her computer? Probably the latter, but only because her workday is spent managing the support team, updating bank connections, doing quality assurance and more - along with hands-on customer help. IGG's second employee, Nancy decompresses by running, nordic skiing, riding her horse, or touring on her BMW Adventure. She's currently running and hiking the hills of Vermont, training for upcoming adventure and long distance trail races.
