Thank you Ms. Chapman--Your comments about useability are right on. We pay dearly for training, and improper use when technicians don't frequently use a system, and cannot navigate correctly to get a job done. I have always pushed for users as part of any software development teams. If it is not intuitive to the specific user,it may as well be a boat anchor. Useability, defined by and for the user group must be a business requirement.

Thank you for saying what should have been figured out by the vendors when they decided to become vendors of these products. Another thing they should concentrate on is compatibility. When an extra patch or work around is needed to work with the system you have in place then find a different product.
