Expert Software, Inc. was founded by Ken Currier and his wife Sue Currier and was based in Coral Gables, Florida.
The company focused on developing and selling inexpensive consumer-oriented software programs in discount stores. Most Expert titles were priced under $15 and were available in more than 25,000 retail locations throughout the world including computer superstores, office supply stores, warehouse clubs, supermarkets and drug stores.
In 1999, the company was acquired by Activision. Activision's intention was to merge Expert Software's products with the products of Head Games Publishing, Inc., which it had also acquired the previous year.
