The most important videos to watch are:

  • Video #3 - Construction Application for Payment Solution Initial Setup

We have found that customers who take advantage of these FREE Training mechanisms are much happier with their software, as they actually get to "see the program in action" while the setup procedures are explained and demonstrated.

These training modules can also be found on our Web Service Center (where you download your software). 

Screenshots shown in the videos may differ slightly from the actual screens you see in the program, however, setup instruction remain the same. Please realize that we spend approximately 250 hours of our time creating these videos that are available here, therefore, it is not an easy task to keep them updated.
