"I have to salute one of our suppliers, too. Almost nobody who reads this email has any idea who Anthology is; but they are the suppliers of our server and workstations as well as the software that records and even drives virtually everything we do. Just more than a week ago, one of our workstations committed hari-kari and our server started getting cranky. Anthology got us new equipment in record time, they spent hours remotely troubleshooting, setting up our new server and making sure we were ready for the weekend...couldn't a'dunnit without 'em!" Joel Crocket, Four Eyed Frog, Gualala, CA newsletter

Thank you for ... the NYT reporting--it only took me a minute or two to do the report this morning.

“The transition over to Anthology’s Private Cloud was smooth and seamless. The team at Anthology supported us every step of the way. Once Anthology was up and running, we found it to be unbelievably fast. Very happy with our decision.” Kathy Morrison, Newtown Bookshop, “The Cash Register is so darn easy to use!” Tom Holbrook, Riverrun Bookstore, Inc., Portsmouth, NH

“You are my favorite software company!” Michael Herrmann, Gibson's Bookstore, Concord, NH

“I am emailing to thank you and your staff for always putting us (your customers) first. Everyone we have spoken with has been nothing but patient and helpful. My staff is very comfortable working with your support team and that is much appreciated. So, just a quick little thank you for all that Anthology does for us. I know I made the right decision with our POS system.” Arlene Lynes, Read Between The Lynes, Woodstock, IL

“Thanks a million! You guys have all been great and so very helpful.” Kimberly Smith-Johnson, Comics and Classics, Jacksonville, FL

“I have learned so much from the webinars this week... Everything seemed very clear and straight forward. Great Job! Thanks again for your time.” Paul Hanley, Flying Oliver Books, Sausalito, CA

“I have extensive computing experience, have taught applications classes for many years and have built databases, and I have to tell you that I find Anthology to be a lovely and elegant tool!” Annie Leonard, The Next Chapter, Knoxville IA

“Having the optimal technology for our business is a large part of why we’re able to do things efficiently; having a company that stands behind their product and is really there when you have a question or a problem and that cares about helping resolve the issue gives me peace of mind and the ability to focus my energies in other needed areas.” Jackie Harris, Under the Sycamore Tree, Grayslake, IL

"Robin and David are highly skilled, tremendously patient instructors. Plus, they are prepared for just about any kind of question you throw at them.” Dana Troutman, North Shore Books, North Muskegon, MI

“I found the Videos on the website a fabulous tool! While the whitepapers are a great help and wonderful because they can be printed for things like PI prep and reference, the videos were a help beyond my expectations. When preparing for inventory, I could listen, take notes and actually see which buttons I’d be using, what screens looked like when they were changing, etc. Anyway, just letting you know I think they’re super.” Pam S., M is for Mystery, San Mateo, CA

“We are now coming on our one-year anniversary for our bookstore, and I can say without any reservation whatsoever that from the initial questions and equipment recommendations to the training on Anthology and its installation in our store, to our daily use of it, we have been extremely pleased with every aspect…. P.S. Our off-site receipt printer worked great!” Jackie Harris, Under the Sycamore Tree, Grayslake, IL

“I think it's great that Anthology does this type of training. I've been able to ask questions and actually see how something is done, like creating a purchase order or ringing someone up at the cash register. Plus, the fact that we can take them as many times as possible will make training employees on the system a ton easier.” Doug Clift, Three Little Monkeys, Fruit Heights, UT

“Oh, another thing – I’m in love with the new Construct A Query addition. It is super! I’ve used Report Writer quite a bit, but this is very elegant. I can get pretty much anything I’m looking for much quicker and cleaner…Hooray for Anthology!” Pam S., M is for Mystery, San Mateo, CA

“We had our Christmas Open House tonight, which is an annual event the bookstore has participated in for about 30 years and that our entire downtown district has done cooperatively for about the last 10 years. We were pretty nervous about how efficient we would be with our new system since we've only been on it about 4 weeks. It's always an extremely busy time. We rang out 98 people in three hours! We were so excited when we closed out tonight and everything balanced perfectly - not even a penny off! We enjoyed showing off our new system to our customers!“ Emily Philips, Burry Bookstore, Hartsville, SC

“It is an awesome piece of software made by an equally awesome company. I cannot express exactly how grateful I am that you helped alleviate all of my headaches.” Nick Reguero, New York Open Center, New York, NY “I’ve worked with lots of software companies n my career and I have never received the level of support we get from Anthology.” Joseph Spaziano, DataNet LLC, Warwick, RI

“Using the integrated email functionality in Anthology, I can now handle my special order notifications in 30 minutes, instead of paying my staff to make phone calls for three hours. It also gives our customers a new way to communicate with us, and helps to open the door for emails we send about special events, etc. What a great feature!” Josie L., Flying Pig Children’s Books, Shelburne, VT

“Anthology provides critical feedback that allows us to order intelligently, return books in a timely fashion, make decisions about what sections to invest in and where to cut back. It offers instant financial data. We can compare sales day-to-day, month-to-month, year-to-year. We can compare vendors. Anthology helps us with our budgeting, our marketing, and our ability to serve customers… After nearly four years of working with Anthology, has it met our expectations? Is it worth the investment? For us, the answer is an unequivocal yes.” Joel Crockett, Four-Eyed Frog Books, Gualala, CA
