Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Data entry when establishing - but now I find out that Dan would be willing to set that all up for me, so wish I would have had him when we first started using JOLT! :)

Overall: We were struggling with the ability to track who was doing (or not doing) what with our checklists and systems. JOLT has truly given us control over what our restaurant looks like, how our food is prepared, and how closely we are following health department regulations. We are now able to hold our employees accountable when the job is less than our expectations, as well as rewards those that are going above and beyond what is required. Anytime I have had any questions or issues with the product, Dan has been able to answer all my questions and point me in the right direction. I strongly recommend JOLT to anyone who has employees! :)

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are struggling to get it all set up and running smoothly, don't give up. It DOES work, so just keep working with your account representative and get it the way you want it.

Great Application, even better customer support!

Pros: Ultra scalable & it grows as you do!

Cons: Quirks of any software really, running into features/functions that don't exist or respond the way you had hoped. Trying to push the boundaries of how the software functions.

Overall: So far the Jolt team has been great to work with. The application takes sometime to get used to & as will all software solutions there is a bit of a learning curve to understanding the software. Studying cause & effect responses by creating & submitting contact was the easiest way for me to understand how the Jolt platform works. We have run into a few features that would be helpful for us, but usually there is a suitable workaround. Looking forward to seeing how the software platform transforms!

Recommendations to other buyers: Look at Jolt as a long term investment not a quick fix solution.

Pros: The versatility of the program. I can customize the reports and lists to my liking. Tracking my employees work and I can keep them accountable without adding payroll hours. The managers love the program as well. Cuts hours off of admin work.

Cons: The time clock function should be able to export the values into an excel sheet that is easier to read. It should also show break times and total hours worked for the day. Making payroll much easier.

Overall: This program has changed the way I evaluate my business. It keeps employees accountable for their work while tracking various audits I do. It was a little daunting at first, but Sarah was there to walk me through the program in its entirety. Multiple follow up calls and questions answered on the fly.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep up the good work. Looking forward to further updates to the time clock feature. I would also like to see a function online that would let me use the program as if I was using the ipad. I don't visit my stores everyday which means I can't see the changes I make in real time. Only receive feedback from the managers.

Pros: Ease of use, functionality, and flexibility of the lists

Cons: would like to be able to customize the look of the lists - different colors and things like that.

Overall: We have 7 restaurants and we use Jolt to be able to "see" into the restaurant everyday with out actually being on-site. We have been able to improve the completion of our checklists and also improve the accountability aspect since we get a picture instead of just a checkmark. Overall Great product and very good customer support!

Comments: We use Jolt to manage the operations for our food trucks and catering services. Since we are totally mobile and often have many events occurring simultaneously, the Lists feature allows for greater oversight and accountability when it's impossible to be everywhere at one time.

Jolt has greatly improved the communication between everyone in our team by utilizing the Announcements features. I love that information can be instantly sent out to our staff, we can verify that they read the information, and, most importantly, that they understand the information by requiring quick quizzes based on the topics covered.

Moving away from traditional pen and paper checklists and cumbersome communications binders has been overwhelmingly embraced by everyone.

We have also seen a reduction in our food waste by utilizing the Date Code Labels. Marking our food items with a clearly readable expiration date has greatly improved our "first in, first out" practices. Additionally, stamping each prepped item with the name of the staff member who prepared it has forced greater accountability that all food items are prepared correctly (and allows management to address individually anyone who needs re-training on preparing a specific item).

Lastly, I can't say enough good things about Jolt support. They are extremely responsive and helpful when questions arise, and the application is constantly improving with new features added based on customer requests and feedback.

We have used Jolt for a little over a year now, and I wish we had started using it years ago!

Pros: I like that we can assign task to employees and see who is doing it and it keeps track of it. I also like that we can create all kids of list, the date dots for our resturant, the schuduling system it gives us a grand total of hours, cost, etc.

Cons: You can't delete list that weren't completed on time. And it's not very clear if someone is already schudule in another area..

Overall: The staff has been our point of contact and has been very helpful. Jolt has better our daily operations throughout our business. We are brand new to Jolt and our experience with the system has been very succesful.

Recommendations to other buyers: To new to the software at the moment.

Comments: I have a rapidly growing food business and have been looking for a solution that would work well with our team ensuring that nothing goes astray. Jolts package has been the best solution I have found which has everything we need. I've found Jolt to be excellent value for money and the team have been incredibly supportive in getting us up & running. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Comments: We are a small marine transportation business with a need to employ sound scheduling, communications and resource tools for our staff. With some research we discovered Jolt and quickly adopted Jolt into our organization. A few short months after introducing Jolt to our organization we have entered a new realm of communications with our staff and senior managers. We're not a large business... I would strongly suggest that any business with a need to improve their operation and communications... look at Jolt

Comments: We just recently started using JOLT in our facility. The process to build checklists and temp logs was painless. Adam has been a great support with weekly follow ups and always available in between those check points for any additional assistance. We are running JOLT out of one restaurant right now just to work out any kinks and ensure our team has a solid grasp on the program. The program is easy to use, especially with using the bluetooth thermometer that automatically records temps right to the ipad with a push of a button. Since adding adding JOLT we have reduced the time it takes a cook to record temps by over 50% and our cold food complaints have reduced and food quality scores have risen. Here are a few suggestions and requests that we would like to be added or available in the near future. 1) a thermal bluetooth thermometer 2) a dashboard feature for the Review category, it would be great to have one spot with key information 3) email capabilities for reports and graphs 4) adding an alert function for when the ipad has not synched in an X amount of hours or days 5) offering an ipad carry case with a neck/shoulder strap. We found one that is durable and the manager or chef can wear carry on them while making rounds, it is the best thing. When it is sitting on the desk, it is out of sight out of mind lists were always overdue or not completed. since getting the shoulder strap, our completion percentage continues to go up. We look forward to adding our next location and starting them on using JOLT soon.

Comments: From label making to checklist, I cannot imagine life in a restaurant without Jolt. We find new ways each month to use it to make life a little simpler, work more effect, and ensuring consistency. It also allows me to see who is completing what and when. The labels printer alone is worth the investment. Everything else is added value!

Pros: The lists capabilities are currently the biggest benefit to us, but we have also started testing the Zebra printer and scheduling.

Cons: We like the scheduling feature but since it does not integrate with our systems, it's not the best option for us. I would also like to see more customization for the way lists can be configured, such as conditional formatting and more that one measurable under a parent item. More customization surrounding notifications would be helpful as well.

Overall: We now have 40 locations using Jolt for our daily checklists and logs. It is great having quick access to any list or food safety log in a matter of seconds. It has improved our team's accountability in getting the necessary details completed accurately on a daily basis. Not only does it help set the restaurant up for success in serving our customers, the Health Department also appreciates our electronic temperature logs!
Some features I would like to see improve are capabilities within the way lists can be setup, such as conditional formatting and multiple items under a parent item. I would also like to see more customization around notifications. The notifications are one of the best features of Jolt! The goods news is, the Jolt team is very receptive to feedback and always tries to make client's ideas come to life.
Overall, I would highly recommend Jolt to any restaurant looking to streamline their systems and eliminate all of the paper and clip boards!

Cons: Nothing really, it's a great program and easy to use

Overall: Jolt helps you put accountability back into a check list. Having had opening and closing check list before, Jolt has transformed these into actually getting done. Requiring staff to scan, take pictures, or record certain items has moved us to getting the list completed 100%. It's as if I am there with them to ensure it gets done. This is probably the best product that I have used to ensure our systems are completed 100%, Jolt is worth every penny!

Pros: it is easy to use and we can tell if our crew does it

Cons: no way to change lists etc to own store

Overall: It is a very easy tool to use and very handy, but with that being said I believe we need more one on one support after it's in the store. After it gets in the store we need a one on one with whomever can change the lists. We all do not have the same equipment in the store or the same amount in each and it takes half our time to go thru and hit NA on the things we do not use. It cuts my list in half and also some of the times due need to change.

Pros: The ability to measure our success or failure and the ability to hold people accountable down to the minute and second an item was completed.

Cons: You will "nerd out" and want to do nothing but write Jolt checklists all day long.

Overall: Before Jolt we were using those ancient relics known as paper checklists. Accountability for completing those checklists was a constant battle. We were literally throwing money in the trash when checklist items were missed or ignored. NOT ANYMORE. Not only does Jolt provide superb accountability and reduce pencil-whipping to a bare minimum. The team members love it! Nobody wants to work in a restaurant that's living in the past with outdated paper checklists. Their are too many great features within Jolt to rave about every single one of them. (and they constantly add new features and functionality.) But I can tell you that we save WAY more money than the minimal cost of this program. Productivity is up, accountability is up, cleanliness is up, morale is up and profits are up! The product date labeling feature in Jolt is worth the cost on its own. Do yourself a favor and take the time for a demo on the program and see for yourself. If you aren't on Jolt, chances are your competitors are and you do NOT want them to have this competitive over you. I just can't say enough about how much I love Jolt!

Recommendations to other buyers: It is a tool, and a tool is only good if you use it. So, get it and use it! You won't be disappointed.

Pros: I like how user-friendly Jolt is. I love the Bluetooth labeling and the checklist feature. I love how it alerts you by email or text message when a checklist isn't completed on time.

Cons: We sometimes have a little trouble receiving the text message notifications but I spoke with a Jolt representative today and they are working to resolve those issues.

Overall: The user-friendly Jolt has greatly helped our Chick-fil-a become an even more efficient and effective business. Through the Bluetooth labeling our kitchen has been able to save time and reduce waste. The checklist feature has been a great accountability tool with our team and enables us to be consistent in our processes. The customer support at Jolt has been excellent and I whole hardheartedly recommend this product to any business!

Pros: I like that this helps eliminate the paper in the store and requiring the manager's to "proof" every little part when they are busy managing the shift. Time-stamps are wonderful. The modular ability of being able to build what you need is great. Setting up pushes for the lists and forms at specific times is a great tool to help keep the team on track daily. I appreciate the notifications that I can create for any form. We haven't yet utilized the point system, but our team is excited to use it in contests. I anticipate it will be a great motivational tool.

Cons: The build-out for getting it functional was time consuming. I did not have any templates to work from. If I had those, it would have been much more streamlined, but would still require an investment of time.

Overall: We have been using Jolt in our restaurant for about a month. The setup took a little bit of time, but once that was complete, the use of it is great! I love how modular it is. Even within the same company there can be little differences between locations. This software realizes that. The options available make it functional for any paper list, form, etc. Not to mention that every action is time/date stamped! It is great to know when things are actually getting done.

I also really appreciate the "real-time" view that I have into my operations even when I am not physically there given the push notifications and range alerts that I have set up. We have been able to mitigate a few situations that weren't being highlighted given our previous methods of data collection and were being overlooked.

The price is right where I would expect it to be. The value is great for the product, service, and online information.

Recommendations to other buyers: It is a powerful tool for your business. As with any big tool, you can't usually just pull it out of a box and expect it to work. There is always a time-period of learning, adjustment, and fine-tuning. That said, that process shouldn't take an overwhelming commitment on your part. Get help if needed... this tool is worth the upfront learning curve.

Pros: Ease of implementation and outstanding customer support

Cons: The software isn't versatile enough to handle all scheduling challenges encountered in the restaurant business. As an example, the same employee may have different pay rates according to the shift or role they are filling on any given day. Jolt currently doesn't have a way to track this in the scheduling module. This also prevents us from using the software as a complete payroll system.

Overall: We have been using the Jolt software for about two months. It is easy to use, and the interface options make it convenient for employees. A few more options for restaurant utilization (which are apparently in consideration and in the development stages) will make the software package even better.

Comments: Using the Joltup System has taken away paper and messy clipboards. There is no need to remember to do something as Jolt just reminds you instantly. controlling 13 other sites from one computer also helps as well with keeping an eye on them.

Comments: We have been using Jolt across our 2 separate businesses for nearly a year now. Staff find it easy to use and management find it easy to manage. We know we still have a lot to learn about the capabilities of the system and are slowly implementing different features as we move to doing things more efficiently with less paper!
Being in NZ has been no barrier to receiving help and support when we need it. Questions are answered within minutes and help is given without being technically confusing.
Really enjoy having so much of my business information easily accessible in one place.

Pros: - Easy to implement in-store
- Massive time savings from automatic label printing
- Higher compliance on product dating, FIFO rotation, and temperature logs from day 1.

Cons: - Labels only print in one color

Overall: Our organization was initially attracted to Jolt because of the wide range of services they provided. Now that we have tested the product labeling and bluetooth thermometer we are hooked. Jolt made the initial setup and content migration for our test account simple. Store level integration was seamless and the team loves using the platform. We look forward to rolling out into multiple locations soon.

Recommendations to other buyers: Multiple price points for different functions would be nice; temperature logs and label printing as a $20-35 standalone would be easier to justify system-wide than a $50/month suite that provides more than we need or would make use of.

Cons: little tedious set up but worth it.

Overall: Jolt enables us to properly monitor our restaurants. As we have expanded over the years it has been hard making sure that day to day tasks were being completed to OUR expectations.

Jolt allows us to customize and monitor things that are important to the day to day functions of our business.

Recommendations to other buyers: get the set up right from the beginning. Hard working backwards.

Pros: Notifications, Product labeling.

Cons: Calculator feature not available.

Overall: It is an awesome way of keeping our team on their toes on ensuring all areas of pride are being done in a timely matter. If for some reason they do not complete their tasked assigned by jolt, we get a notification on what items were not done so in return we will call or text the manager in charge to see why they were not complete. Supervisors also get the notifications on all incomplete tasks so they can also give us a friendly reminder when tasks are not complete. We also have access to a printer which gives us all labels needed for the HACCP program which makes labeling all products much easier. It would save the company in us going paperless since we would not have the cost of printing out red books. I like the several features like upload pictures, Commenting, sending messages t the team. Customer support has been very helpful to us and he is always keeping up with the workflow. Overall it has been an AWESOME experience.

Recommendations to other buyers: So far the experience has been AWESOME!!!!

Pros: How it has helped the store become more efficient.

Cons: I need labels I can adjust or have available for Raw Chicken to have all the information required by headquarters on one label.

Overall: I was approached by Jolt to try their product. No other locations from my company have tried this company so I had no comparisons or reviews. After checking around, the price made it worth the investment. Once we received the product it has changed our process in a positive way. The main features we use include the List, Labels, and Schedule. We were using hand written labels before Jolt because other company labeling equipment was too expensive. With our past hand written labels faced issues with labels falling off, unable to read the hand writing, and the employees did not do a great job looking for items that expired. With Jolt the labels stick to the container very well, is has the expiration written on the label making it more simple for my employees, and there's no question about date or time.
We were using paper copies for our multiple list (Typically 6-8 list per day) List would disappear, become dirty, or just not be completed. Jolt has made this task more simple with the added feature of a log book making communication easier to all of the employees. This has reduced our usage of paper, toner, and extending the life of the drum for our printer. I can easily access all list and review a date, time, and employee that completed the list. This helps cut down on my time used for performance reviews.
The scheduling section has also been great. Employees can use a free app from their phone to view schedule and submit request. Creating schedules is easier and more time efficient. The only option I would like added would to be able to view the schedule and my request side by side before I approve the request. With the current process I have to look at the request and then go to the schedule to see if I am able to accommodate the request. I do have 35-40 employees with a majority those being college students with school schedules and personal request to try to work with.

Recommendations to other buyers: My only tips for improvement (especially to spread to other Zaxby's locations) would be to have labels to accommodate products that need more information than the other labels. To have an easier view of request vs. schedule and approved request to determine better if I can approve a request. This would help reduce my time of going back and forth to Time Off/Schedule.

Pros: The user interface is very user friendly. We are able to adapt almost any tool from Jolt and find a way to apply it into our current procedures. They staff has become more efficient at their duties, and we know that the feedback provided is secure and accurate.

Cons: Nothing!

Overall: To start off, Jolt has become a major part of our daily operations since we decided to partner with them. From the extensive amount of checklists, to the sheer number of daily users, Jolt has been able to deliver a user friendly and efficient experience to our staff. Support from the Jolt team is amazing, as they help guide you through your initial training and ongoing training as you continue to learn the functionality of their system. You will be amazed at how many applications you can now use Jolt for. They are truly with you every step of the way. If you are in search of an operations software platform, you have found your answer! Jolt is perfect for the job! We have been able to operate with increased safety and our park leadership has been able to more effectively and efficiently perform their duties.

Recommendations to other buyers: In the future developments, we would like to see the ability to print/export multiple forms to a PDF in a single click or selection process.

Comments: The Jolt App seriously took us to the next level and beyond. It is super user-friendly and full of jaw-dropping features that you would normally expect from a more expensive software, but what stands out the most would be their customer service. Our implementation specialist was not only knowledgeable but patiently walked us through the entire process and answered our million questions, even questions that we did not know we had, but he knew would be useful for us to know! I would 100% recommend this app to any organization that wants to increase productivity, promote organization & accountability, increase employee engagement & communication, and take their work culture to the next level! It is definitely worth every penny, and you will get a tremendous return on your investment.

Pros: Gives me levels of communication to my staff

Cons: Just waiting on an inventory system

Overall: After 26 years of running my business, I decided to run my business from afar. I needed a way to communicate with the staff, keep team members trained and on task, make sure we are labeling consistently and lastly keeping documentation for the health department.
The Jolt platform and team has handled that transition for my company! This application has challenged me to raise the bar on the staff. And add levels of training that I can do from a remote location. I believe all small independent restaurants should seriously consider this platform.

Comments: Jolt is great from a task management standpoint, there are so many things that need to be managed within our company and it has helped us bridge the gaps between our retail stores and culinary center checklists.

My favorite feature about this application is the time clock; when team members are looking to complete opening shifts or closing shifts, Jolt allows the checklists to be displayed at the appropriate times for those shifts.

The expansion and organization of all our company¿s departments lists will benefit tremendously from Jolt.

Jolt is very user friendly and has a seamless interface. The company and customer service has been a pleasure to work with from start to finish.

Pros: Accountability made easy. I don't have to reprint to do checklists all the time.

Cons: It's not always intuitive for staff. The sweep button should make clear what it does. Also some buttons are too close to each other. Like the "correct answer" and red x button are too close on top of each other. They should be side by side to elminate accidents. I've also accidentally made a list inactive when I meant to click save. I'd spread them out a bit.

Overall: I really enjoy using this service. One thing I would say is that it's not super intuitive for staff. I don't know why, I think it's just intimidating to work around the site. One feature we'd like to use more is the announcements, but since we don't use that timeclock, it's a pain to ensure employees are clocking in/out.

Also- a management review feature would be nice. They could do a walkthrough on the list the next day. Add or remove points, make comments, etc.

I wish there was a way for staff to see comments when they login.

Recommendations to other buyers: I think a feature request place would be worthwhile.

Pros: Multiple skill sets, coverage count, copy week and trades.
Unavailable times and Preferred work times are repeatable and end on certain dates.

Cons: Can't trade only a part of a shift.
All trades must be approved manually.
Load times are terrible.
I can't copy one week across multiple weeks in a batch copy or anything similar.

Overall: Jolt allows me to schedule multiple skill types and check coverage for each skill. I can check an employees daily hours as well as weekly hours to stay compliant with student employment regulations. The copy schedule feature is nice for week to week scheduling, but is really slow for more than one month to copy across each week. Jolt loads REALLY slowly when you get larger than 50 people on your team with multiple shift types. Loading is the worst part of jolt. I spend 25-30% of my time on their site loading.

Recommendations to other buyers: Works for small teams. Is a nightmare for large teams of students who frequently trade hours and have study groups, exams, and classes to work around.

Comments: I have used Jolt for about 9 months now. It has definitely helped a lot with operations but I find that it is lacking depth in abilities. Updates seem sporadic and don't really focus on their core features like the checklist and logbook functionality. In comparison to something like HotSchedules logbook I would say Jolt is easier but a lot less feature rich. The bonus is it does have a scheduler/time clock and label maker ability which is nice. Would like to see more updates but would definitely recommend.

Comments: We've been using Jolt at our quick-service restaurant for the last 6 months now, and operations have never been better! From controlling things like cleaning and opening/closing priorities through checklists, to managing food rotation and waste, we've been able to save money!

Jolt offers a simple, easy to understand user interface that exceeds the needs of our restaurant operations. The checklists and reminders allow staff to be more engaged in their responsibilities and take more ownership over their work. Training is easy with the ability to create videos and photos that teach staff new concepts as they roll out.

The labeling tool has cut down our prep time for food immensely. No more do we have to worry about taking 20 minutes +/ day just labeling our product as it's prepped. We also no longer have to worry about proper product rotation or expiration because the labels leave little room for error. Customizable labels help us to keep things organized as well!

Overall, Jolt has been an almost priceless addition to our store. Since we have implemented it's software fully, with the help of their dedicated and knowledgeable customer support staff, we've been able to increase productivity, decrease costs, and create a more uniform and consistent operation in our store.

I highly recommend this product to anyone in need of help creating, implementing, and maintaining a strong, centralized standard of operations in your business.

We have training modules for our associates, we can control our food temperatures better to be in compliance with the health department, we can assess the quality of the restaurant operations and much more.

Cons: Software is still in development, the more we use the more features we want! Scheduling for multiple locations is not where it could be, but they are working on solutions. The reporting could be a bit easier to pull data and comprehend.

Overall: Jolt has changed the game for Balance Grille's daily operations. From opening and closing procedures utilizing the "Lists" tab, to posting announcements and keeping recipes and training videos handy in the "Info" section. We also use the "Log Book" by leaving notes/comments in the checklists, opening another channel of communication between staff and management. Jolt has helped us keep employees on task and held accountable for their work in ways that benefit our bottom line and daily proficiency.

Comments: Using Jolt has been one of the best additions we have made to our business. It has made training new team members 10x easier and faster. We no longer have to micro manage everyone because of their awesome list feature. Because of the list feature we have been able to cut our closing time by 25 mins, so almost in half.

This company is great they are very willing to work with you and make sure you are using the full potential of their software. We have had a wonderful experience especially working with Mike he has been super patient and anytime I have a question I know I can call him and get an answer, which is very reassuring.

We are excited to be apart of such a great company who is going places.

Pros: Ease of use. Pictures and date stamps that keep employees honest. training new employees is a breeze.

Cons: Lack of ability to personalize to individual locations needs or preferances

Overall: I have been using our new printer for Jolt and I LOVE IT! I really love the fact that every item prepped now is labeled with who prepped it, when they did so, and the EXACT time of expiration. The fact that it uses the internal clock to time stamp items is amazing. This keeps everyone honest. There is no fudging times or dates to ¿extend¿ foods shelf life.
The ease of use is incredible. I mean there is not much more to say on that. It took us a couple of tries to figure out the best way to label our items received from Sysco but then a simple answer occurred to me. Before even starting to put up the truck, simply read the invoice and print ALL labels needed and it is a breeze! After that more specific labels can be made using the ¿custom label.¿ We use it to mark the weights of our meats so now daily inventory is a snap. No more trying to decipher messy handwriting. I have even gone so far as to use it to label items for caterings to give things a more professional look.
I do wish that custom labels could be saved for repeat use. That is maybe my only complaint about this printer. I keep it in my office to save it from the wear and tear of daily kitchen activities. It is an extremely helpful device that has streamlined our labeling and made it much more effective as well. Having this now and using it all day every day, I hate to think of life without it.

Thank you,

Pros: I love how easy it is to pick up on. I was capable of teaching myself with ease. I love the schedule and how employees can create a prefered avaiability as well as request off and swap shifts with others at my approval. It informs me immediately when someone makes a request, and I am able to set it so employees have to give x days prior notice for their request as well as a reason. I also enjoy the variety of options I have for creating my checklists. They can be as thorough as I want and notify me when I want. My employees also find Jolt easy to use. Most of them figure it out on there own and have had no problems using it. I also use their Jolt printer system, which is extremely useful and honestly could not have been created any better. The stickers do not leave residue! The support is also great. Theyre always open to ideas and tend to be very fast pace when assisting you. I love how willing they are to expand in new features/ideas. There are many other benefits to Jolt, but I have listed the big ones I discovered using.

Cons: My one con is the text notifications recieved from Jolt. You can set so that is a checklist is overdue, out of range, etc, you can be notified via text. This is a great thing; however, the texts can be overwhelming in the sense of how it is formated. It could be because I own an Android and not an Apple device (which is what I understand it is mainly used with), but my text notifications get broken up instead of being all in one. I have seen my co worker use her iphone with it, and her notifications are all in one. With that said, I have noticed they have been improving it.

Overall: I use Jolt for the Food Industry. It is straight forward and easy to use. I publish my schedule, manage requests, set lists, and manage people. I am also able to send announcements and track my labor goals. I use it daily and it has become my main use for most things.

Recommendations to other buyers: If youre wondering if it would be a good investment, the answer is yes. I enjoy using this program as it makes me job a lot easier and better manageable.
