Years ago we used to but they didn't keep up with technology fast enough. We considered it again but apparently it's going through another makeover and it won't be done until next year. As it is they're kind of spread out and that just didn't work for our needs.

As you have/will discover TP has a learning curve that stretches beyond the horizon and, due to it age, has become an exception based program.  Not a good choice expect for those already enrolled.

I suggest WiseAgent.com or SurgarCRM depending on where you see your business headed in the nest 5 years.

As Clifton L. Saunders stated SalesForce is the gold standard for CRM and embraces the future/now technologies you must be focused on. It comes with a price tage. Sugar is a less expensive, leading technology alternative.

Ginger, I had TP for years - I took classes locally for two SOLID days and updated with webinars after that. I still found it to be cumbersome and it became increasingly difficult to train assistants on it. This year, I went with Brivity and 1/2 day, all 5 of us were trained on it and LOVE it!
