=== Testimonial ===
Chuck Miller (Informed Solutions, Inc.) about hmReports:

“Your dedication to making products that people can actually use is above and beyond. When confronted by a client with a need that makes sense, like exporting reports to blob as opposed to text, you take the bull by the horns and do it. I can not recommend you or your products any more highly than that.”
