Words from the CTO
A Look Ahead to 2013
Bernardo Castilho, Chief Technology Officer

Our customers will see practical benefits of this in the near future as we align our product lines and optimize our resources. At the same time, we saw the release of Windows 8 and the new style of touch-based Microsoft applications that promise to span the gap between the desktop and mobile devices.
The next few paragraphs give you a quick update on what we are planning for the next few years and where we see the industry going. Continue to the full article...

What People are Saying
"I have been using Spread right from version 5 (in VB6) to new Spread for WinForms. I haven't come across such a feature-rich solid Spread before. To be frank, while migrating our VB6 applications to .NET, our company avoided all third party components except Spread. Thanks for giving such a nice component." Adavesh Managaon MVP, Visual C#
"I've just started using Doc-To-Help, but so far it has been easier than I would have imagined. I was impressed that I got something that worked right the first time. My company used NetHelp for our online application and it works great. We generated demo files and they worked without any problems. This really is an easy product to work with. Thanks again." John Clark, Senior Technical Writer at Zoll
"As a developer, I appreciate the flexibility of your products. As a business, we find the export formats and the end user designer to be invaluable. The uniqueness of the ActiveReports products have helped to boost our sales which is always a good thing." Wendy Mathis, Software Engineer at Knowledge Relay
