If we use the automobile as a comparison it is easy to see how software functions. Cars are purchased daily and driven by millions. But, millions do not know how they went together or what makes them work or how to fix them when they do not work. Software is similar. Provided the interface is clean, easy to navigate and has an appeal those using it will generally enjoy it. Cars are purchased everyday based on interior and exterior attractiveness. It is when software does not function that no matter what the pretty interface, it still becomes ugly quick!
Maclau Pro is here to help, always. No different than any other business time is precious and when we provide time outside of an initial consult we must invoice for it. Time slots are dedicated for this purpose to ensure we guide and provide valuable planning advice, on demand, when you need it.
