And when I would run into a problem or have questions which were typically in the evening hours, I … Read More

I have used TPC since Version 1.0, both the office and the data collection versions. While I have had my issues with TPC (mostly my own stupidity) I keep coming back (usually after a couple days…). Their tutorials are on spot, their learning videos are very helpful and their support is the best software support I have ever had. Even in this economy I have kept the support up for that reason, and their updates are excellent, they even make … Read More
