Thanks a lot.
I am very happy with your product and your support I`ve recommended it with all my friends...

Hey... I just wanted to let you know that I really like your program, but I was even more impressed with you getting back to me quickly, and with the amazingly thorough and helpful instructions on your website.
I had considered a few other search programs (most notably DT Search) but for all the reasons above, I went ahead and bought a standard license from you today.
From: Piero Carra, Italy.

Chris, thank you very much for your excellent support. I think I was able to solve, in some way, the customer problem
From: Ed, RellerGold, USA.
Date: 03 May 2007
... and now it runs like it's supposed to run! It falls to me to convince the management that we need to pay for all this technology. Given the degree of customer service you provide I hope it will be an easy sell.
Having once been in the business of recruiting salesmen and women and sales engineers in telecom I was even more impressed by your responsiveness.
From: Andrew Hallett, Triangle Infotech Ltd, UK.
Date: 26 Jan 2006
Thanks for all your prompt and excellent help on resolving this. It is very much appreciated and your product is meeting my expectations. Have always wanted to offer searchable CDs (with no install), and having fingered fiscd a couple of years ago I'm pleased the opportunity arose to use it on a real project.
From: Maurice Jorgens, United Nations, USA.
Date: 14 Mar 2005
Thanks for your efforts and I AM spreading the word about what good products you have!
From: Nathan, Notcon Internet, UK.

Many thanks for your hard work. Our client is most impressed by both how easy the FindinSite-CD software is to use and by the speed with which you implemented the changes that they requested to the software. Excellent customer service.
From: jsoulsby, The Netherlands.

This is truely a great product. When we wanted to publish our Management System Documentation website to a CD, this was the only product at the time that allowed you to add a search facility to the CD. Search is a critical requirement and was provided by this product in a user-friendly and cost-efficient manner.
From: Michael Bademann, Western Systems Informationssysteme GmbH, Germany.
Date: 16 Jun 2004
well done ☺
From: Paul Croome, Software AG, Germany.
Date: 2 Dec 2003
Yesterday I was explaining the latest features of fisCD to a colleague who is still using an older version of the software (V3.x), and once again I realised what an excellent package it is. From my point of view, it's a brilliant blend of your best ideas, gently spiced with the results of constructive dialogue about features that we wanted to see. It's unbeatable! Keep it up!
From: Paul Croome, Software AG, Germany.
Date: 4 Mar 2002

I'm currently evaluating FindinSite CD 3.0 and I must say I'm very impressed, particularly with the highlighted and hyperlinked hits and the ability to customise the search results.
Once again - excellent work.

We just released the second version of the CD with the search function. We are starting to get very positive feedback. The users like it. Thanks....
From: Paul Croome, Software AG, Germany.

FindinSite-CD-Wizard is an unqualified success. It is a great product, and it is a pleasure to use it to run through a large web (approx. 1,500 HTML files) in a couple of minutes.
From: Melanie Wilkens, FundSERV Inc., USA.
Date: Tue, 20 Jul 1999
So far, I am favourably impressed with FindinSite-CD. It has shown definite advantages over the other stand-alone search engines I've tried. It has worked on most platforms (Windows95, Windows NT, MAC, UNIX ... at least with a version 4 or later browser) and via both URL and file access. There were a few odd results on a MAC...but this was appearance more than function... and only using IE (Netscape worked fine).
From: Bill Lawrence, ANSYS, Inc., USA.
Date: Tue, 2 Mar 1999
I had no trouble indexing our documentation set. I have our documentation group using the full-text search of our documentation set to see if we can find any problems. So far, so good. I must say that this is the very best of the Java-based search tools that I've found. I expect that you'll be hearing from us about licensing in the near future.
From: Nadia Nabaoui, University of Hamburg, Germany

Super! It runs. I cannot believe it. Thank you very much.
From: Dennis Mansker, Employment Security Department, State of Washington, USA
Date: Mon, 23 Nov 1998
On the basis of the ease of use, the "look and feel" issues, and the cost, your product was the clear winner.
From: Colleen Moran, Newport Electronics, Inc., USA
Date: Fri, 16 Oct 1998
I really appreciate the help you have given us.
