Question 228: How are you coming on the third edition of Who's the Employer? Can we get a network license for the CD, or a multiuser license for the Web edition?
Answer: It's coming very well, thank you. I'm excited about the third edition, and judging from the responses I've received so far, so are my readers.
Specifically, I expect to be able to release the print edition and the CD-ROM version during the month of October, 2002. The Web edition will likely be rolled out during that month as well.
Several folks have enquired about network licenses on the CD. The price for each additional user at the same office will be just $25. Alternatively, pay an extra $100 and you can install it on one network and let any user on that network, at that office, access it. Multiuser licenses for the web edition will be priced at an additional $25 per user, regardless of the number of users, so long as they are at the same office. I'll post an order form for multi-user licenses shortly.
Since we are still in a pre-order situation, I will extend a 10% discount for all orders received between now and September 30. Click here to pre-order today.
