Gorilla software

Any use or know of someone that does use Gorilla Scheduling & Budgeting software?

http://www.junglesoftware.com/home/

I've been having a play with a demo but it's a steep learning curve at my age

P.S. the Jungle software people aren't all that helpful, unlike most of the US companies I've dealt with. Customer service is key and you guys do it well.

just to answer my own question - I spent the better part of 2 days entering data and trying to decipher the 'guide' only to have the program corrupt one of the database files and now it's down permanently - waiting for a reply from the company :-(

quick turnaround -they've sent the fixed file back and I'm on the learning curve again. I'm too old for this - somebody shoot me

Hey Paul,

I've used it and I like it. The only part I don't like is the strip board. It's kinda a pain in the butt. However I do like the day of days feature and the budgeting with the running tally on top.Oh and the ability to use my tagged Final draft script in it.

My friend is using Celtx from scripting to day of days. It doesn't do budgeting yet, but I think its coming sometime.

Stick with it. After a while the kinks will work themselves out.

I only used the demo myself, and agree with the learning curve, but I've looked for others that do as much at the same price range and haven't found any.

Didn't they recently release some training dvd's. I know they run training seminars in New York and LA, but that doesn't help you much.

I do think they are making an effort to get more instruction out there though.
