I strongly recommend this product for web work,
This review is from: easyGen 2 (CD-ROM)
It's not often you manage to find some software that does exactly what it says it does, over the years I have found most software I have purchased has greatly over rated itself. But if anything, this program under rates itself and it's incredibly good value for money.
I am in many respects a relative novice computer user but as this years chair for my local round table it was left to me to sort out our new web site. This was a new web site and we wanted to allow people to buy tickets from us using Paypal. We also needed a search so people could find information in our pages and we needed the ability to email our members list so we could update them with up coming events. We also wanted our board members to be able to add or update the web site without any special software, so they could just log in and either add a new page or change out of date information.
As a charity we need to spend money wisely and the quotes we received for doing this work were ridiculous and so whilst searching the web I came across this product. After purchasing it I spent the first weekend with the 120 page manual trying to figure it out and then I found the training videos which luckily covered a lot of what we wanted to do. Within a few hours I had it the main part of our site created. By the end of the next day our new site was all but completed. easyGen did exactly what it was meant to do, it built our web pages and database and we have a wonderful new web site.
I would advise inexperienced users like myself to watch the training videos, they are superb and really do get you off the ground very quickly. My initial problem with easygen was, I think I was expecting it to be much more difficult to use than it actually was. Once I realised how truly simple it was to use, all became clear.
I would like to finish by saying I am a 58 year old who only started to use the computer 5 years ago and I believe if I can do something on the web it must be easy. I would never have believed I could have created a data web site. What a wonderful product this is.
