Again thank you! I have been in this business a long time, and have very rarely come across your level of professionalism and responsiveness. With each interaction I am more confident in my decision to use your product. Thought you might like to know, this isn't being used in any small scale application. It is for a Fortune 50 company, with thousands of users. So far they love this new feature!
-- A.A., Concurrent Technologies
I am very happy with my purchase. Your product has saved me much time and aggravation.
-- Duane Kiser, JS Express Inc.
We are extremely happy with the product. It works well, which is the highest praise we can give a product.
-- Frank Carey, W. J. Schafer Associates
I have been in the computing industry for 20 years, and this is the best customer relation response that I have ever experienced with the exception of the former Digital. If your company has a stock offering someday, please let me know, I am interested in investing ...
-- Gene Hirschel, Chase, STO
Bottom line, coding and deployment went like a charm. User is happy, my boss is happy, I am happy.
-- Geoff Sutcliffe, Datagaard Pty Ltd
Thank you for your quick response again. You really did a very good job to support us. I just want to tell you my appreciation.
-- Jack Chiang , Lucent Technologies
You have been very good communicating with us (which I still find to be a rarity) for net based businesses, that is why I will not wish you good luck as Luck as a commodity you do not need when you exhibit such a degree of professionalism as your company does.
-- Jase H. Przychodzen, EDS, Australia at Adelaide Institute of TAFE
Thanks for the quick response and the great service.
-- Jim Baron, Logica
We know that the reputation of our product depends on the quality of the components we OEM. Dart's professional approach to its products and its customers has resulted in trouble-free integration of some great technology and a great OEM relationship.
-- Juan Guillen, Simware Inc
I think you have a GREAT product. I have bought others that cost more and could not even get them to work.
-- L.R., Nashville Government
Thank you VERY MUCH for your immediate response. This relays a very positive impression about Dart Communications. Your responsibilites to communicate with your customers is very reassuring. The same goes for firstname.lastname@example.org, too.
-- Michael Beer
It's a great tool. It's so well designed and written that I don't think I'll ever need any technical support. I've written several small apps with it already.
-- Neil McAliece
You have no idea how much easier your product (PowerTCP) has made my current project. P.S. I love this product
-- Daron Lord, Arizona Superior Court in Pima County
Using PowerTCP makes a great pleasure to me. When I received the copy, I could include immediately the TCP/IP connection into my application using your tools. It works very well.
-- Dietmar Käppeli, Miratec AG
Having tried several TCP toolkits and even writing our own components in Delphi against the Winsock DLL, we found the PowerTCP kit to be far superior to any other method of implementing TCP/IP communications. The ease of installation, clean straightforward properties and methods made conversion a quick and painless procedure. PowerTCP is at the top of a long list of 3rd party tools and components we use, a position it earned and deserves.
-- Ed Purkiss, W. D. Macodi Corporation
I think Dart's PowerTCP Tools are wonderful! PowerTCP works like a champ. I am using the PowerTCP FTP Tool for a current project and I love it!
-- G. Veduccio
We have a few other toolkits that we’re working with in-house. Of all, I personally, have found PowerTCP to be most useful.
-- Gabriel Perez, NetSolve
Well, am I impressed with this stuff of yours. Calls up the dial up network connection and just goes right to it. Please tell whoever is coding down there that they have one impressed puppy up here in Canada. It took me 30 days to install the Distinct software and only a few hours to put in your code.
-- Glenn Brand
Dart's PowerTCP Tools are excellent and the staff is very professional. Dart's Web Enterprise Tool is great; it took me just one day to learn this component and add it in my application. PowerTCP is perfect!
-- J. Duchemin
The PowerTCP Mail Tool and FTP Tool are excellent. They are both feature rich and robust and the technical usage documentation is helpful. I love both products.
-- J. Palmer
What can I say....I am sold, I have developed my own set of TCP Tools, and am going to back them out in favor of Dart Tools! This stuff is fantastic! I have worked with a number of toolkits over the years and this Secure TCP is one of the best yet.
-- Janet Broadway, Jan-Net Technical
I am truly happy that we purchased this product. I have seen no other package that provides the level of professionalism and support of Dart's PowerTCP. You guys are great. This is by far the best support response I have encountered in my development career ... Anyway, thanks once again for the fast response. We currently have 4 development kits of PowerTCP and I would highly recommend your product over any other. Keep up the good work.
-- Layne Grantham , Coca-Cola Enterprise
... just finished an automated ftp process with PowerTCP and Visual Basic 4 ... works great!!! Thanks for a great product
-- Pat Todd, Cycon Publishing, Inc.
So far, it [ PowerTCP ] has far surpassed our expectations! We needed to change the default keycode sequences in the VT client, and you included that information right on the front page of the product! VERY IMPRESSIVE! Thanks for such a great product!
-- Robert May, Direct Communications
PowerTCP is a great product. From day one of installing the software I had TCP/IP and FTP demos ready the same day. Your package makes it very easy doing either synchronous or asynchronous communication. I've tried other products and they just don't have what it takes for rapid development and reliability. It literally only took about 10 minutes for me to start passing and receiving packets over the Internet. I've been using VB for the past three years and this product is definitely on my top 5 of third party controls.
-- Ryan Ragle, Walsh Distribution
SOESoft relies entirely on the Dart PowerTCP range of ActiveX controls for all our network related functions for our product suite. By exhaustive research SOESoft has proven beyond a doubt that Dart controls are the most robust, reliable and industrial strength controls on the market. Due to the nature of our products second best is not an option. Additionally, SOESoft contracted Dart to produce a custom control for us. This was a great experience for us with the control developed to the best standards and on time. SOESoft sincerely thank Dart for their professionalism and quality of product.
-- Simon Manners, Product Development Manager, SOESoft Pty Ltd
The most stable and reliable product I have ever worked with and it is very easy too. It is part of a program made in PowerBuilder handling requests from a voice response system; this program has been running for the last 5 months without being restarted once. It handles 2-5 thousand calls per day. Great product!
-- Thomas Ulrich
The PowerTCP Zip Tool enabled me to encrypt data and send it over the Internet without creating a physical file on the server ! I did this using the native stream capability. This enables a client to ask for data from the server, have the data compressed into a zip file on the server, and then sent to the client without any extra files being created on the server. Furthermore, the FileStore concept allows me to store multiple files in a single compressed file, allowing for a really clean client/server distribution model. Other controls let me compress, encrypt, etc., but your design allows for a clean delivery mechanism, which is not easily accomplished with other products.
-- JR, Developer, Sunnyvale, CA
Until now I've used the zlib control. After encountering problems with it, I was happy to find your control was as easy to use (if not easier), had much more functionality and a very good help file.
