Comments: My experience with this software has been great so far. I haven't had almost any issues as this program is easy to use- you just have to spend some time learning a few things and you'll be good to go. The few times that I had an issue, I emailed Primasoft's support and they replied very quickly with the solution to my problem. I'm really glad that I purchased this software and I highly recommend it to any librarians as this would be a great program for anyone to use, even beginners. This program serves our church very well!

Pros: Good price, easy to use, 30 day trial version that you can download

A good balance between power and simplicity
