“I am new to MobileTogether and developed my first app very fast. This product is fantastic!”

MobileTogether customer, via Support Forum

“Very effective tool, congratulations!”

MobileTogether customer, via Support Forum

“Thanks a million! This did the trick. Everything is working fine and I am nearing the completion of my app. I have been working on it for over a year and have tried several different solutions which could not do what you just did. Built it with MobileTogether Designer in about five days with your help. Can’t say thank you enough.”

MobileTogether customer, via Support Forum

“We have been using Altova XMLSpy for more than 4 years for our XSLT/XQuery/schema development... XMLSpy, as an editor, is a great tool for non-technical users as well, as it helps to view/edit/organize the XML. As a XSLT developer, I use XMLSpy for my XSLT development and for ALL the debugging of my code. In a nutshell, XMLSpy is the best.”

Manoj Pillai, Senior Developer (xslt/Perl), Shared Services Group, Inc.

“We used XMLSpy during the development of ‘Profiles’ software at Harvard Medical School. Using XMLSpy, we were able to perform development tasks with ease. I have used many XML development tools, but I highly recommend XMLSpy over all other tools available.”

James Norman, Technical Manager, Harvard Medical School

“We have been using Altova MapForce for over 6 months now for our two largest customers. It’s been working great! We receive a large number of purchase order lines weekly from both customers, and have had no processing delays. The purchase orders come in via an AS2 connections, and then MapForce converts them so our ERP software can import them. We are impressed with the speed and reliability delivered daily by Altova MapForce to meet our key customer’s demands. We Highly recommend MapForce!”
