Recently we attended a seminar on "Innovation".
And an idea that came out of that was that sometimes you don't need to upgrade, add to or improve your product. You need to make it simpler.
We realised that we sometimes have calls from clients who want to use our software - but only part of it. They don't need all the functionality, they just want the basics.
So, we have released a series of LITE versions of our event tools!
Here's the first one - our much-loved abstract management system:
