From Bill Catchem Software:

"We've been using this since 2004."
Version: BC In Out Board 12.2
Too many too mention, but let me give you a few of my favorites.
1. Easy to install.
2. Works Great and the trial never expires. (remember that?)
3. Everything is only one click away.
4. Private Messages (Like a "While-You-Were-Out note, but can be used for inconsequential communications).
5. You can hide features you don't want/need.
(like updating twitter or chatting)
7. Tracks user In and Out History
like I said.... too much to list here. But let me add a few our IT department likes.
1. Super easy to integrate with Exchange or Share Point
2. Not a traffic pig.
3. It's essentially a simple website so there's zero maintenance.
As for bugs? None! lol. Ok... found one. The trial (in 2004!!) was missing an email icon/image.
The Install works great and manual install instructions are on the site and conveniently labeled "Install Help".
Want to uninstall it? No problem. Just delete the install folder. That's it.
Must be at the physical machine to use the installer because the settings get applied to the pc running the Install (no surprise there). But if you know how to give the IIS IUser_MachineName permissions, or know how to setup a website, it's easy peasy to do manually.
We've been using the BC In Out Board for years (version 4 I think). Support has been way above the norm. For example, I've had them respond to me within 90 seconds. really! Had them migrate our users to new version for free. Had lots of slight modifications for free (because they thought the feature suggestions were so good they included them in their release! (like having the users picture pop up when you hover the mouse over a user's name).I find it suspiciously funny how the review by Grandmereb is the only user to rate it a 1, when all the others rated it 5 stars. lol
We've tried a few others to see how they've evolved and they just haven't kept up at all. Not even close. BC Software rules this space. Get It.
Someone above gave a one line "don't get it". Well I say get the trial and decide for yourself. Even if you do buy it and don't like it, your credit card will reimburse you and take it back from them, so where's the risk in that? lol.

"Don't waste your money and time!"
Version: BC In Out Board 12.2
The only pro was that it was cheap! But watch out, you get what you pay for!
Support takes forever and there are tons of bugs in the releases!
Don't buy it! We are going with another IN-OUT Board instead because their support is awesome and their software is feature loaded and bug free!
