“I’ve dealt with a lot of software and computer companies over the years, having started working with computers in 1981, and your staff is in the top 3 for service. No matter how dumb the question is that I may ask I am always treated like I am important and the person in technical support or customer service is patient and provides me with the information and answers I need.” - Doug Litke, President
