I agree wholeheartedly, as someone who has used both ForeHelp and RoboHelp.

I wonder if Blue Sky is aware how notorious their rapacious, opaque pricing
policies and kamikaze marketing (I know people that have virtually been
*hounded* by BS sales reps!) is becoming amongst doc and help people. Their
product is solid, and all things being equal I would feel comfortable
choosing either ForeHelp or RoboHelp. However, the massively uncool vibes I
felt radiating out from Blue Sky every time I dealt with them during my
latest HAT purchase decision made ForeHelp a very easy call.

FWIW, etc.


P.S. I live in Boulder, Colorado, and thus make all of my important
professional decisions based on how "cool" the vibes I experience are,
matrixed with a karma quotient.

P.P.S. ForeHelp is based here, but I have no relationship of any sort with
them, other than that of satisfied customer.
