Barry, I've been trying to finish up my year productionwise during the day and had unexpected issues to deal with in the late afternoon/evening the last 2 days. However, I just got off the phone with him and everything went well. He gave me another demo using my information this time. It was interesting to see. Every question/ concern I could possibly come up with was answered with "it does that automatically" or I was shown how it could be accessed with the stroke of a key. He also showed me a map feature where you type in a starting point,say your shop(address) and then type in the address of where you want to go(if it was a current customer a keystroke did it automatically) and it gives you the distance from point A to point B. If you kept zooming it will bring you right down to a section of 3 or 4 streets on a city map. You could also switch over to an aerial photo of the specific address. I believe it was Google Maps. It could store and connect up to 6 separate locations for you. He is working on expanding this feature more (more locations stored I believe). Anyway, long story short. I'm sold. I'm buying and with a 2-3 hr initial training I will be able to accomplish basic tasks with ease( So he says. I don't think he realizes just how technologically challenged I really am)
