Help is just a click away. We have a team of experts devoted to answering your questions and solving your problems. We want to make sure the software doesn't get in the way of doing your job. Email us and keep working or give us a call and we'll answer your questions right away.


Get the training you need in the way that makes sense. We offer many kinds of training to meet customers' different needs. For onsite training, our trainer can come to your facility and deliver our standard training materials to your staff. We offer this same training at public facilities throughout the year. This can be more cost effective for training a few people. We also have free online training available 24/7 - learn from top experts at your convenience.


In some unusual cases, our standard reports and query builder can't generate the information you need. For a nominal fee, we will take your requirements and produce custom reports for you.
