So stick that in your VM loving hat and eat it.

In a previous life I had the misfortune of having Snowdrop forced upon my 200 user enviroment (gotta love those HR Consultants), nearly £10k a year for software maintenance on the basic MsSql/VB frontended tosh, If I remember rightly they wanted an extra £250 per user for enabling the employee self service web front end on it. Lets just hope Sage don't try the same upgrade route with their SMB version. Then again, looking back on it Sage hasn't had the best history in developing their non accounting type acquisitions, anyone seriously using Act?.
