    Test-Um

    Not a supplier but a manufacturer...

    I recently purchased a Test-Um ValidatorNT 950 and it is a BRILLIANT piece of kit. I have had it two weeks and there has been 3 software upgrades in that time which have added lots of magical new features!

    I have had difficulty installing the Plan-Um software on my iBook so I tried the 'LiveChat' on the support website, unfortunately the guy wasn't too helpful but did pass my problem on to someone else who replied the next day (time difference with Colorado permitting) and solved my problem to a satisfactory standard immediately!

    These guys are great! I hope that EduGeek is going to be able to work with them in some way... more news soon.

    I'd also recommend test-um, good quality kit and reasonably priced.

    Re: Test-Um

    @john: It was roughly £750 from Oliis Solutions (tel 01753 496000 and ask for Bobby)... Oliis have been good to EduGeek in the past too.

    As I mention above, EduGeek will be talking to the people at Test-Um in the new year too.
