A great bunch programs
"Referencing your server problems. I don't believe there is anyone person or company utilizing the internet with it's mariad ways of having a problem that haven't had a mahjor clitch somewhere along the line.
This short email is just a than k you from a user of your programs to thank you for a great bunch programs Let the complainers rant all they want. You guys (& gals) are tops as far as I am concerned."

i was not effected by the server issue but i felt i must respond to your letter.
Thanks for owning the problem and letting all your users know what happened. There are not many company heads that would take the time to write to their users much less care about a problem that has already been rectified. You showed why I, and i'm sure many others, are glad they purchased Collectorz software. There may be better products (but i doubt it) and there may be cheaper ones (who cares) but you have reconfirmed our faith in Collectorz by demonstrating the balls to take ownership of your problems. BRAVO, ALWIN! I know i made the right decision by choosing Collectorz for my music and movie collections. Keep up the good work.
All the best to you and your team."

"I think you are a great company, going above the norms to provide satisfaction and excellent service. So your server goes down, well these things happen. Of course, when one does not know what is happening, one can become verbally aggressive, etc,. However, if one takes the trouble to know who we are dealing with, then it should be fairly easy to know that if there is a problem and CLZ did not talk about it, then it is because you did not know about it. And we should give you the necessary time to fix it.
It is a pity that we cannot respond to your emails particularly when we want to show support for your good service. Maybe you should have a button somewhere that says 'Comment' or maybe you have and I do not know about it.
Anyway, allow me to say once again, thank you for such a good company and for the good service, server failure notwithstanding. I will complain about something when I will have a real reason to do so."

Keep up the good work
"Hi all at Collectors, I was just reading your last email about your server problem. It happens, no big deal. But what concerned me was that you get negative stuff about your programs. I have had absolutely no problems with the program. In fact I recommend it to anyone that will listen. I had one question when I first started and that was explained politely and quickly. I would like to say keep up the good work."

In case nobody else has something good to say I just want you to know I've always been impressed with your software and support. It is to be expected in 'the real world' that unexpected things like this happen - anyone who thinks servers, databases, client software, network hops, etc. should be up and working perfectly without errors 24/7 365-days-a-year is living in 'an unreal world'!
So happy with your movie collector over the past couple of years that I just bought your game collector software too.
Keep up the great work and thanks for doing what no one else is doing so us collectors can keep track of all our stuff!
A VERY happy customer,"

Head and shoulders above your competitors
"I've been a Collectorz.com user/customer for several years. Yes, you've had a few hiccups during that period, and for a person who is not very "computer literate", it's been a little frustrating at times. But in all fairness, you're system and customer service are head and shoulders above your competitors. Frankly, it would be almost impossible for me to manage my DVD and Blu-Ray collection without you. So, thank you for being there."

I like Collectorz!
"I am very impressed!!! I wish American software companies took care of the Customers as you do!
1.) you recognized my previous 11 year old purchase.
2.) you offered to let me reload that version 4 old software use it on windows (it was originally for the mac), no questions ask & no charge or money
3.) you offered me the newest version 16 for only $7us and by PAYPAL
4.) you do not force me to use the cloud
5.) you do not make me subscribe or rent the software
6.) the occasional update service is cheap & simple
7.) the registration and update were very simple & easy, YEAH!!!
I like Collectorz!"

Proper customer service
"Thank you for your prompt reply and support. I have added new password and purchased an upgrade. However, my reason for this reply is to thank you for an exceptional high standard of customer service. I am impressed and in my opinion you could teach most software providers a thing or two about proper customer service. Thank you again."

The best programs to buy
"All fixed now & (as always) your reputation will precede you whenever I am asked for the best programs to buy for any device.
You don’t just have to be a collector to benefit from your software, I am, but the number of times I saved myself from missing or duplicating a purchase thanks to the lists on my phone are beyond count now.
I take this early opportunity to wish you & your team “A Very Happy Christmas” & all success & good luck for 2017."

"I want to take a moment to thank you for your prompt response to my issue.
I recognize that many companies would have merely sent me a form response. You not only replied courteously, but promptly resolved the issue.
I use both Book Collector (3345 items) and Movie Collector (1511 items) and my wife uses Music Collector.
I am extremely impressed with the quality of your products and company."

I truly like your product
"One of the main reasons that I very much enjoy your product is simply due
to the fact that you and your husband is very attentive to customer's
requests and concerns. Being a developer for over 40 years I can recognize someone who is passionate with their product - I guess that is why I truly like your product, I can see the small tweaks that are done to make things that much more nicer/easier for the customer to use."

"I have to tell you that I am really impressed by your support for the various Collectorz products. I've been in the software business for a really long time as an IBM mainframe systems programmer and have worked with a lot of software vendors. To say that I find most PC software support to be a joke is an understatement.
Thanks for actually caring about your product.
Of course, I really like the Collectorz products for more than the excellent tech support. I had played around with home-grown spread-sheet and SQL collection management tools and was really happy to find a professional alternative.
And best of all, the products keep getting better, for which your developers should be congratulated regularly."

"I've seen testimonials and I would LOVE to have my appreciation of the software AND the company/personnel reflected as such in the testimonial area.
I don't know how long I've been using Collectorz software but it's been for several years (I'd actually like to know how many years I've been using your software). Much of the software I use, I honestly dread any upgrades the company does - especially when it's described as a major upgrade.
Not so with Collectorz. Not only are the upgrades announced and described in advance, there is always available support in the (as I've found) unlikely event you will need any support. Upgrades are painless and make noticeable improvements in the program. It's moved into a more and more user friendly application area as time goes on. It has made keeping track of my growing CD collection more than easy. Collectorz has also made it fun.
Put a different way, I enjoy Music Collectorz so much that I wish I collected comics or movies or books so I could use other software. I have a friend who is big into book collecting. She's not particularly computer literate, but after a fairly brief introduction she has been using Book Collectorz now for about 3 years and loves it. She says she's constantly amazed at the identification of various versions of a book and the fact that this one simple addition makes tracking the value of her collection and the availability of the books for which she is searching so much easier than the system she used before.
Sorry to be so long winded, but this is the first and only software program I've purchased and used that did the vast majority of what I need it to do, provides easy guidance for utilizing new features as they are available, doesn't cost nearly as much as I was afraid it would, and allows so many peripherally related tasks to be seamlessly integrated with the keeping track of your collection.
Thank you, guys. If you're able, let me know how long I've been a customer/client. Post it in the testimonial, because it's been a good number of years and has progressed through what was originally my vinyl collection no to which it strictly a CD collection.
I have to say thank you again. If everyone did what they said they would do as quickly as and to the degree that Collectorz does, we'd all be a lot happier and have a much easier time doing what we have to do.
(note from Collectorz.com: Michael is a customer since June 2009)."
