"I came across ActivReporter last October at Summit. I was so impressed with the product that as soon as I got back, I started calling my clients. My clients who watched the demo decided to go with ActivReporter as an alternative to Management Reporter before the demo was complete. ActivReporter has cut the reporting time from days to hours."
