STORY: SnagIt Multi-User License

Dan the technical writer listened to his co-worker's statement with
disbelief.

"I don't need SnagIt," Heather said snidely. "The Print Screen key does
everything I need."

Dan didn't feel like confronting her - yet. Instead, he went to his
office, opened up SnagIt, and reminded himself of its many abilities
beyond simple screenshots. He listed out loud, "SnagIt captures text -
it captures it as editable text from places you can't normally capture."

SnagIt can capture every image from a Web site - simultaneously.

SnagIt also has video and printer capture capabilities.

SnagIt Studio allows you to annotate your captures --within the program.

With SnagIt, you can send your capture directly to the printer, as an
e-mail, to the Clipboard, save it as a file, etc."

He shook his head. What was Heather thinking? She just didn't know! She
was unaware that no matter the occupation, computer expertise or current
task, SnagIt improved the appearance of documents. That's part of why
SnagIt offered multi-user licenses -- because so many people found it so
useful!

He tapped his fingers to his forehead. If he knew, and he told her, and
she told others . . . eventually, the entire organization would improve
the way it worked!

"Not only do I want to help her succeed," Dan whispered, "But I vow -- I
will help improve the company as a whole."

No longer cowed by Heather's dismissal, Dan set out of his office to find
her.

As he walked, he unbuttoned his dress shirt to reveal the SnagIt t-shirt
underneath.
