Client's feedback:
"…Without a doubt the new release makes our job in sales much easier. I wanted to give you all some feedback from Sales: look and feel of Product is now much professional and slick. It shows much better, even for features that we had before such as flowcharts and business modeling. It is amazing the change that a new GUI can make to people's perceptions about a product and what it does…"
