I have now been asked to add an online forum to our company site. We sale an accounting software and they want to make it so clients can get on this forum and talk back and forth with each other.
I went and looked at some info on the snitz forum, I think that is the same tool that is running this forum?
Anyway, I just wanted to check with you folks and make sure that is a good tool to use, and also make sure I am not getting into anything too deep.
Is it easy to setup and maintain?
Any help is much appreciated.
Also, if anyone has any other suggestions for other things to use I would love to hear them.

Snitz is a pretty good frum as far as I understand. It runs on ASP so you have to be on win2k or NT server. My Understanding it requires that software gets installed directly on the server??
Anyway I think the program we use here is as good if not better You can get more info Here (http://www.qksrv.net/click-1088877-804495)
the difference is Snitz is free (was last time I checked) This forum is $85/lease or $160ish to buy.. What I like about paid programs is the support and updates are really good.
My 2 cents

Thanks for the info Robert.
We are on an NT server so as far as that goes I think we would be alright.
I will check out the other option you gave me because I think you get what you pay for with things like this.
I would rather pay and be able to make something work rather than get it free and constantly struggle with it.

I have no idea if this has anything to do with the software or the Administrator - but i have yet to see a SNITZ forum that is attractive to look at.
I use InfoPop's UBB and like the ease at which that was to set up and maintain...but I do not have anything to compare it to....:cool:

I just recently chose a Forum from ezboard, you can find them here. http://www.ezboard.com/index.html
Finally chose this one because we didn't want any ads or pop ups. You'll pay a bit for that ($30 - six months) but you can also get it free if you don't mind the ads.
It seems like a good one to me. Highly customizable if you are comfortable with a little html, lot's of templates to choose from, many are very crisp.

(man this place is great!)
