Another cool feature in an AMS

I was attending a demo for one of my clients recently. They were taking a look at the IMPAK database from Integrated Software Systems, Inc. (ISSI). During the demo, the ISSI staff pointed out that there is online help on each screen of the database. But what really caught my attention is a ...

Another Successful TAUG

TAUG is TMA Resources Annual Users Group meeting. This year they met in Louisville, and it was, once again, a successful event. I've mentioned this users group meeting before, but what I wanted to highlight this year is how TMA Resources treats the consultants who work in the association ...

New Features in IMPAK

I recently sat in a demo for ISSI's IMPAK software. I've been working with ISSI since 2002. I've always said that ISSI offers more "bang for your buck" (i.e., functionality for the dollar) than just about any AMS on the market, and the latest offering didn't ...
