What We Do

What We Do

SEM Applications, Inc. has been dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for public and private Guardians, Fiduciaries, and related professionals since 1997.

Christened as EMS (Estate Management Software), the program was first developed as a Desktop (client/server) application. In 2008, the EMS Web application took the functionality of the desktop application and gave it wings! With EMS web, customers are no longer tied to the office. Instead, data can be accessed from any computer, mobile device or smartphone via an internet connection and a web browser, giving customers the freedom to work when and where they need to with full access to client data.


We promise to be your partner at every step; to make your job easier with agile, refined and consistent solutions that adapt to meet your specific needs.
