    Ramesys is who we use. Richaard Morgan is the contact.

    I used to use Phoenix Software at my old place as well.

    I'll take your word for it, but as long as they offer a cheaper quote than Ramesys they can keep reselling licenses from Ramesys and I won't complain!

    You'd think that going direct would always be cheaper, or at least I think that way.

    Maybe there's some sense to it somewhere but thankfully I work using the licenses not selling them so I don't have to know.

    Currently been getting pricing from WStore, Insight, Ramesys, Pugh, Phoenix, and Civica for a MS schools agreement. Gotta say thanks to Dan for beating everyone else's prices!

    Until I got Dan to quote Insight were beating everyone else by a fair bit so they may be worth a shot.

    Licenses should cost the same regardless of where and who you purchase from. It's not like a physical product!!! It will be like oil next and the price will rise and rise!
