From Avril’s office I understand that you are the programmer for Time Design. Well done the software is really the best I have worked with so far. As you can see I am the EMIS/IT coordinator in the Free State province and my schools are really crazy about your software.

Patrick. Many, many thanks. Your program continues to save me time, I find the ability to instantly ‘cover’ staff absences a godsend.

I was trying to load the registration after I had been working on my file. I entered it before I opened my file and bingo it worked. Thanks for your wonderful programme. Next time it will literally take me only an afternoon. Probable less as I have all the data in. I should hire myself out to other schools.

This programme is one of the best I have used to do a timetable. We have a complicted setup at our school and it manged to solve it with a minimal of changes.

Peter Davidson - Fish Hoek Middle School

Many thanks for the update. I managed to create a timetable reasonably easily in the end and also was able to accomodate the majority of the staff’s special requests. Being able to use your programme meant that I was able to devote my time to studying during the holidays and not be distracted by having to spend hours fiddling with the timetable.

TimeDesign can only be described as the simplest and easiest way to create timetables for schools and training institutions.
