Great products

I'm a consultant who has been a fan of the Brightwork products for years and have several clients who use them.

Product Reviews

Excellent roll-up solution, elegant design leveraging CAML and XML, very customizable. You can buy Reporter for "the basics" and then upgrade to pmPoint if needed.
A little on the pricey side, and priced based on total number of servers.
