    Not everyone is Cloud.
    You'd be amazed how much rage can be generated by even "1" extra mouse click (actually you're in IT no you wouldn't)
    Familiarity

    Anyway, back to the OP's original topic.
    Nothing more to see here.
    Move along.

    Good point, you'll be surprised how many people have been moaning about moving from XP to Win7, especially on an IT floor.

    The only limitation is on the printing. Which instead of being direct to printer would require you use the export option and then print the exported file via whatever app you deem appropriate for the purpose.

    Having finally remembered to bring my Chromebook into work, I can confirm everything John has stated above and earlier relating to the Bromcom MIS can be achieved on a Chromebook.

    Hi all,

    We went to Bromcom MIS before the Easter holiday. I can confirm that you can do the report building on a chromebook. You only need the print client to print from a windows machine running IE.
    We are slowly getting everything in order and using more and more of the features. I can give you all an honest picture a little later on if you like. I can say that the support is great compared to the previous MIS.
    All I can say is make sure that your current data is in order before your migration. Make sure that all any fields that you may never have used in the old MIS are input as they may well be used in the new. e.g. we didn't have email addresses as the old MIS system didn't use them.. many more...

    All in all a good experience
