Guy Kawasaki"This is just a note to let you know how impressed I am with your services. A client of mine had a problem with Business Plan Pro last Thursday and had to resolve the problem that day in order to meet an important deadline. I found your phone number, she called, and a technician asked her to email her business plan. This was very close to your closing time. But no matter your staff got right on it. The technician then was able to solve the problem, and emailed the BP back to her. She was able to make the changes and get her BP in on time. You guys are great! That is what I call exceptional customer service."
- University of Hawaii Small Business Development Center

"Thanks again for the support of the PA team — I've never seen a software company take total accountability for customer issue resolution. If one employee isn't available, then another steps up to the plate. This means there aren't any gaps in time or service — remarkably even when it's outside of your stated service hours. Thanks again for your help — I only hope the response I get to the finished plan is as great the response I got from the program team that created the software!"
- Everett Stephens

"The financial section of Business Plan Pro Premier offers more detailed financial information than any other business planning software available.

- Robert R. Sewell, President, Davis Landing Ltd.

- Jessica Hallman Van Clifton

- Rebecca Matthews

"Purchased this afternoon and I love it. I've produced about 10 business plans over the last three years and all with Word and Excel. This is great software, a real help, and will save us 30 man hours next week alone. We are amazed at what Business Plan Pro does for us - it is so easy to use but so effective with multiple output options. It really only took twenty minutes to get the hang of it and about six hours to generate our draft one plan. I've spent 16 years as a programmer, analyst, technical author and software tester (including four years with Hyperion Software inc. as a consultant) and this is the best planning tool I've come across, including software costing thousands of pounds. We are going to get the marketing version and upgrade to pro when our accountant has had a look."
- Richard Hough

"Just wanted to add that as best I can determine, using both your marketing and business planning software over the years has directly generated for companies I've worked with well over $30 million. And who knows how much indirectly as a result thereof!! Looking forward to receiving that next version. I'll let you know the results ($$) of it also."
- Bob Hornbeck

"From the moment I opened the box I was making money!"
- Gordon Justice

"Business Plan Pro provides the background, insight and tools that you'll need to create a business plan. And it can be a big time saver that lets you focus on that new business."
- Watne Kawamoto

"I had an appointment with my bank manager on Monday. But I still hadn't got the financials ready for a business plan. I didn't really know how to put together a profit and loss or a balance sheet. So I took a gamble and bought Business Plan Pro on Sunday. The wizards were simple to use and I had the financials ready in a couple of hours. I didn't think it would of been that easy to put together. I took the plan to my bank the next day and they approved my loan the following day. I know that without the proper format the loan would have been turned down. Thanks to your software."
- Russel England

"It is an easy-to-use software package with strong supporting resources, and covers all of the necessary components of a well-developed business plan."
