 The Pool Man, Inc.April 20, 2009
Our company, The Pool Man, based in Tomball, TX. had been searching for a software program that would fit our needs and requirements for over a year. Our search led us to Pool Pro Office.

After reviewing the program online with Mark several times I decided that a trip to Florida to see the program work in the "real world" would be in order.

I spent two days with Mark and Gerard in Orlando at the American Pools and Spas facility getting "hands on" experience with the program. In the two days, and a night in the hotel, I was able to set-up my job board with all the milestones and enter a couple of test projects.

Mark and Gerard guided me through each step on every user application, from entering a lead to closing out a project. I was able to explore all areas of the program and begin to familiarize myself with all the information that is at your fingertips.

By the end of the workshop I was totally impressed and sold on the program. I couldn't wait to return to the office and share my experience. Within the month we purchased the software and after only two weeks we were up and running.

The support that Mark and Gerard have provided has been above and beyond my expectations. I look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with them.

I strongly suggest anyone interested in improving their organization to explore the Pool Pro Office with Mark and Gerard.

By getting "hands on" training and experience you can make an intelligent business decision and investment in your company.

Thanks again to Mark and Gerard and to American Pools and Spas for sharing their facility and knowledge.
