I am very happy to tell you that I ordered your business plan for coffee shops, and somehow I ordered the CD instead of a download. So I emailed you and asked if somebody could please help me... I can't wait for a CD I need it now. Just to let you know, and hour or so later I got an e-mail with the link to download and was able to write the plan and present it. My wife and I are sure we will get our loan because someone there was on top of customer service. I used ya'll because my action coach gave me some literature with you in it. Thank you for your help and we will use you on our next project.

I have been using and have been a fan of this model since the beginning when it still had some bugs. You have made tremendous strides since then and I love the current release. Had upgraded the last time to 8.0 and had been using that version until I did the 12 upgrade a few weeks ago. Superb product!

For the past 2.5 years I have been using your Finance Pro software as part of the business plans I write for various clients. This superb tool allows me to generate five-year proforma financial statements and perform the necessary sensitivity analysis that my clients expect. My clients as well as their prospective investors have been rather impressed and pleased with the financial details I have been able to show them thanks to your software capabilities.
In the past, your support staff has always been available to help when I picked up a minor bug and gave me ways of correcting or getting around my specific problem. As with any model, it cannot be all things to all people but your software does come very close and your willingness to listen to customer feedback and suggestions shows your continued willingness to improve and peak the product.
I have used your model successfully for business plans that only required US$ 5 million in funding all the way up to a major industry business plan that required US$ 185 million in funding. Again, thank you for a great product and the superb support that goes along with it.

The reviews that matter the most are those provided by customers. They work with the program and their opinion is the most important. If you read some of their comments, you'll understand why many customers have been with us for over 20 years and still are.
