In 1998, Mike Harrington, President of Superforms, entered into an arrangement with Innovative Solutions, a business partner of JD Edwards Software of Denver, to be a contract consultant for financial software. In 1999, he became a OneWorld software developer using Edwards' OneWorld Tool Set and specializing in financial reports. Also in 1999, Innovative Solutions was acquired by Broughton Systems, also a JD Edwards partner. Harrington became a part of a team that specialized in JDE report writing coupled with Optio Software, a provider of document output management software.
