Pros: None as I stopped using it and have already built my own spreadsheet, it is far easier to use and more powerful than this clunky software.

Cons: License agreement is a con as the people on the phone tell you one thing and then do another. My suggestion to anyone who is thinking of buying this product is stop immediately as this is nothing more than an over priced excel spreadsheet with horrible arrogant support.

Overall: I used the software and found that it was nothing more than an extremely expensive excel spreadsheet that was difficult to use, not very intuitive and clunky to use. I no longer use the software and strongly recommend that people do not buy this software as it is just an excel spreadsheet backed by arrogant support who say one thing and then do another.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't buy it, save your money and develop your own excel spreadsheet.
