Don't reinvent the wheel! Assuming an hourly developer
rate of USD 75, the cost of a 1-developer license can be recovered
in just under 2 hours. Is it possible for your company to develop
such full-featured, customizable and thoroughly tested components in 2
hours? As a business, you need to save every minute of every hour
and FileView will help your company do just that. See the value
for money yourself and increase ROI for your company.
I had an explorer clone running in less than 5 minutes..They have made
it as simple as some drop of components!
I know you probably only get emails when people have problems, so I want
to make sure that I take the time to tell you how much I love this product
and how much it has enhanced my web-based application."
- Alan Tepper, TepperWare Computer Solutions
By using your components we were able to cut our time to add this feature
from weeks down to hours, it was just that easy (we may have not been
able to add this functionality at all within the timeframe we had given
ourselves)! We tried other components from other companies and we spent
more time trying to get them to add the basic features we needed when
your components had every feature we needed; easy synchronization of the
combobox and fileview, Vista folder thumbnail support (a definite plus
for showing previews of items in the folders), and more, which we continue
to find useful and implement in future versions of our products. If you're
a software developer, these
components are no-brainer"
