    Talk to me about a replacement to RM Success Maker

    We currently use RM success maker - we have an entire room dedicated to it! When we move away from RM in the summer, obviously this won't work any more. What are my alternatives?

    Why won't it work when you move from RM? it's just a software product.

    We use to use Success Maker on our SEN PC's, when i pulled us off an RM Network and went Vanilla back in 2004 we still ran Success Maker, it does not need RM Connect to work, and its not even made by RM, its a rebadge job like most of their stuff.

    We use Successmaker 1.7.2 on our SEN PC's here on a standard vanilla network without any problems, we used to run 1.3 but I was able to get a free upgrade to the later version.

    Jeeez, haven't ran SuccessMaker since the days of RM Connect 2 on Windows 95.... those were the days!!

    But yeah SuccessMaker isn't RM specific, so long as you have the correct licensing you can use it.

    I would be interested in hearing any alternatives for SuccessMaker, if anyone has them.

    Sybase SQL Anywhere.

    Alternatives? We use several online programmes now, like Method Maths, Fast 4 Word, stuff like that. We still have Successmaker running, but not sure how much use it gets now.
