  • "Cost Xpert is like a dream come true for software developers requiring a complete estimating solution. A fellow programmer recently told me about another cost estimating product. We agreed to meet so that we could compare the two products. I installed Cost Xpert and started to show him its features. After my demonstration, the strangest thing happened. I never had a chance to see his product. He told me it was like comparing a 'Cadillac to a 'Ford' and he was too embarrassed to show me his product."
    William Little, Little Computer Solutions
  • Level 4 Ventures . . . . "is proof that information technology companies needn't be located in the heart of the action. From Jamul, Level 4 was able to predict the failure of the state's $100 million so-called 'Deadbeat Dad Tracking System' two years before it went belly-up.”
