My name is Todd Zabel. I'm with Technology Advisory Group [TAG]. Our company helps clients and prospects evaluate systems, implement systems, and - even before that - a lot of times we are helping them realize what their real issues are and how to solve their problems so that they can run their business more effectively and poise for growth.

We've done a lot with QuickBooks, Sage 50 - zero on the lower end - and then Sage 100 in the mid-level, and SYSPRO on a more manufacturing level on the higher end.

We kept running into a lot of businesses that really needed help and a lot of them were smaller, medium-sized manufacturers, so we didn't have a good solution for that, so I really honed in on what sort of solutions are out there and for the cost, because a lot of times there's some nice manufacturing solutions out there, but the price is just too high for these smaller, medium-sized manufacturers. And they need that functionality just like the big manufacturers.

I gravitated towards xTuple because of a couple reasons: one, I knew that it was originally developed for the manufacturing market and businesses, so it was a logical step, if that was the market I wanted to have a solution for, and they [xTuple] were on the short list. But as I got to know [xTuple], I looked at the pricing, it seemed like it was an affordable solution for those smaller, medium-sized manufacturers, so that was a plus.

And then I really liked, it just seemed like they, xTuple, kind of had it going on, I guess. The website was pretty complete, a lot of information. Looked at some of the feature sets, and I liked that it was basically, you could use any type of operating system that you wanted to, so it took that out of the equation.

My biggest surprise is - you know that in working with larger software vendors - they're not very responsive. They're public companies, so they're looking at the bottom line, and it's more of a sales-driven relationship, than really a real partner relationship. So I'm much more interested in that sort of relationship with our software vendors, to really work hard and have good product that really takes care of those clients and their needs and what's coming ahead and for their growth. And so that's what it's really all about, and that's what it feels like we are going to get with xTuple.

We're pretty excited and we are going to actually set up xTuple for our own business.
