Our policy regarding software bugs:
The vast majority of leaders in software production industry agree with one thing: There is no bug-free software!
And that comes from companies that have a large number of developers and testers in their team.
We support that standing and are prepared to admit the same ourselves. As any other software on the market,
our software may have some bugs ie. irregularities in work.
As any developer will tell you, you can test your software as much as you want, but you cannot control the execution environment of the program and there are big chances that your customers will almost-always find bugs and problems
with all the different computer configurations, working environment conditions and different usage than you anticipated.
Our team cannot guarantee bug-free software, but we can assure you that with the dedicated professionals in our support team, we will hear all your problems and suggestions, and give our best to resolve the problem as fast as possible.
This is also one of the ways our company grows, because with the help of our users we constantly improve our software
and get new ideas for the future upgrades.
As a confirmation of our words, here are some examples of the world’s largest companies having issues with their software:
– In 2006, Microsoft accused more than 1,000 paying customers of piracy.
