"We loved the design, and the ability to have various access control and training configurations. Once we got to see the basic design and ease of use of BookItLab, we could not look at any other software. The whole team (about 10 people) chose this software over all other software. It wasn’t even a question! As a few of the team members said:  “you get what you pay for, and this software totally worth the pay”."
