You are right, Janet, there was need for improvement.

So, RAMS did just that.

In response to our customers, we have entirely re-vamped our technical
support, replacing the old system with support teams and system trainers.
 These people not only assist customers but also work with them on a
continued basis to make sure that they are using the system to its fullest
advantage (complete ERA).

Also, if you are interested, even just for curiousity sake, in looking at
our NextERA SQL Server Edition, please do let me know.

I will not swear that you will change the way you do your business
immediately, but I do think that it will affect your impression of our

We had the old RAMS software (DOS version) and found it very difficult
to work with for proposal preparation.  I found their technical
support lacking.

We now have the SPIN package from Infoed and have been satisfied with
the results.  I think they have some exciting things coming
up and their technical support is excellent.
