    I was wondering if anyone had any experiences or have heard of anyone else's experiences with Inovaware's ISP software called Prism and Resolve.

    It is very expensive software but we are thinking about adopting the software.

    We currently use Alabanza's system and looking for a system which supports NT and Linux systems if possible. We have a new business alliance with an e-ecommerce company and are expecting a few thousand new web sites who require NT servers.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    How'd you ever learn about them? All three of their URL's don't respond: http://www.inovaware.com, http://www.innovaware.com and http://www.isppower.com.

    I Remember ISP Power

    On my PC I have an old copy of "ISP Power" from a couple of years ago. It was offered for free without support to companies with less than 100 clients, I think.

    ISPPower used an Access database for its engine. You could set it up with client details and hosting/dialup access prices, etc. It was really meant for NT systems and could allow clients to signup/order products/add themselves to your system online. However, since I was on a Unix box I just used it to manage/print invoices on my PC for a while.

    It was a whole billing system, keeping track of balances and payments, etc. Not sure if it did the credit card posting. Maybe it did. I do know it would have sent statements by email to the customers if I was on an NT box. Very nice system, but its interface was difficult to use and since I was using the free version with no support, I didn't get any better at using it, so I went to QuickBooks.

    I read that Alabanza was going to move its billing systems to BillMax . Nigel you may want to wait or ask your Alabanza rep about it. BillMax is a very nice system, I hear.

    I'm cutting this out from another discussion. It is a cut and paste of a press release (thanks to Annette for providing it):

    Anyway, it made me think of ISPPower. So I went to ISPPower.com and ended up at Inovaware.com. Guess they bought the ISPPower product and renamed it.

    Sorry to see they no longer offer a free trial system for a limited userbase like ISPPower did.

    That's all I know.

    They have renamed their company to Inovaware.

    They seem to have developed a lot more of their product now. Some large hosts use it now including Innerhost, hostpro / Vservers.

    I'm having a product demostartion very soon so I'll let you all know how it goes.
