"When we saw Surpass we were really excited about it! It was a fully web-based solution. It didn’t require that users install anything on their machines, so that made it much easier to use and all the features were designed to be intuitive. Without any formal training, an item author could go in and start using Surpass to create items. That was really a key reason why we selected it."
