    What software do you run?

    Hi all,

    Just wondering what software you lot run in different departments or throughout school.

    Would be good to see what other people use and think of their software.

    We use a hell of a lot of birchfield educational software for different departments (I think that's what your asking?).

    We have over 100 Birchfieled titles but to be honest i don't think it gets used very often if at all.

    Re: What software do you run?

    I was more interested in what's installed on machines in a department. We've got some of the BirchField stuff and staff think it's good.

    Just after a list of software in use on each machine.
