I would not say a waste of time, but I gained no real valuable information. I have been trying to find a decent scheduling package for over 30 years and there are really very few out there that are reasonably affordable or will do all the things that they say they will do.


it was interesting but the presenter uses the term UM way too much and it was very annoying


Very good.
