Pros: Easy to use and easy to teach to new employees.

Cons: Can't copy and paste info. Would speed process up and help eliminate input errors.

Overall: Using software for 6 years. Always quick resolution of problems that surface from time to time.
Easy to understand and very helpful customer support.

Recommendations to other buyers: Would like to export and save old info to help comply with regulatory requirements as well as speed up processes for current accounts.

Water Solutions does allow for cut and paste using the keyboard commands ctrl+C and ctrl+V. The program also supports many other shortcut key combinations to make editing and manipulating data easy.

Pros: Regular updates have made this software relevant to changing technologies. I now use email text messages and of course mail.
Customers like the chart that tracks their usage.

Cons: I haven't had any problems.

Overall: I first got this software in 2004 for my community water system. I had never used a database and was only marginally computer literate. It was super easy to get started and when I did hit snags the customer support was quick to get me back on track. I especially like the user's guide. It's easy to read and makes sense! I now use the multi-company version and run two water systems: one with 400 accounts and the other with 150 accounts.

Recommendations to other buyers: It also tracks your source and distribution meters usage.
