Update (2)

Quick Disclaimer: Comments are from a purely personal perspective!!With the training completed and the testing now under way, the sheer magnitude of this is finally sinking in.

The enrichment is billed extra; so you have SAAS fees, plus enrichment fees. By my reckoning AquaBrowser would be a far more economical model over the same time frame. Give Dave Patten…
