You will be pleasantly pleased." - Greg Freeman, The Doe Run Company
|"Thanks again for your assistance and fantastic service! It’s always a pleasure dealing with you." - John Hoffman, Clicks Group Limited
|"We push probably 1500 emails out a day from our IBM i using MAILTOOL and MAILTOOL Plus from several different applications such as Invoicing, Statements, Acknowledgements, POs, Office Reports... Just to name a few. We are now part of a very large corporation and what other entities are quoting weeks to get going we completed overnight thanks to the flexibility of your product and your help. Thanks again." - Dale Svitak, Norcraft Companies

A great software which is very helpful for our business.." - Hans Dubois, ICT Manager Optimco, OPTIMCO NV
|"It is a tribute to your software that in the 2 years (and probably longer), that we have owned it we have not had any issues with the SPL2STMF [SPLTOOL software]." - Paul Therrien
|"We have used SPLTOOL and MAILTOOL for well over a year to email order documents to our business partners. The applications are great, but even better is the service you provide. Recently, over a weekend, we upgraded our iSeries and had a challenge with the SMTP server configuration. We contacted Support on Sunday afternoon, and Brad promptly came to our rescue. We were up and running Monday morning with no interruption to our business. Thank you, Brad!" - Davida Kelley, Bartlett Bearing Company, Inc.
|"We bought MAILTOOL five years ago and never looked
back. Since then we’ve sent 247,000 emails with over 120.000 with attachments!
Talk about BULLETPROOF! The only times we contacted BVSTools was to buy
two other great software packages JOBWATCH and SPLTOOL Suite and when we
upgraded machines." - Paul Scher, Manager of Programming Services,
|"It is nice to know your software is so well supported.
It sure beats phoning a helpdesk, being on hold for 30 minutes and never
speaking to someone who really knows what they are talking about." - Thane
Barrett, Idaho Department of Commerce and Labor
|"Wow, you are a life saver! I absolutely appreciate
how quickly you responded to our crisis. We sure thank you. You and your
programming products are the greatest." - Scott's Liquid Gold /
Neoteric Cosmetics Inc.
|"This version of your tool [AFPTOOL] works wonders
on our invoices. Will save us thousands of dollars in labor from scanning
a printed invoice and then attaching it manually to emails to our customers."
- Brooks Roach, George Koch Sons
|"GETURI is very powerful. As I wrap up the interface
I am writing using your GETURI program, I started thinking how powerful
this is. We are starting to get more and more requests to interface legacy
data and programs that sit on the AS400 with other pc based systems... I
know that there are more and more web services being written.What I like
about your program is that it is very simple to install and start using.
It is native to the 400 and doesn’t require 12 engineering degrees to program
into. The price is nothing compared to other solutions. Thanks again for
your quick response and help." - Robie Pace, Manager of Services,
The Systems Specialist, Inc
|"It’s a pleasure working with a software provider
that still cares about “partnering” with a customer." - Bill Hodapp,
|"I would like to thank and praise you for such a well
written tool. We currently use your SPLTOOL in a number of our daily production
jobs and could not be happier with SPLTOOL." - Jonathan Davis, AS400
Programmer Analyst / Administrator, Oklahoma Tank Lines and United Petroleum
|"Following the combined use of OUTQTRG and SPL2SPL
I have been able to automate a spool file copying procedure without having
to write any software to do this. This has saved the Bank a considerable
amount of costs both in development costs and further down our processing
cycle where a potential cost has been reduced by 95% by simply using SPL2SPL..
I have not had any problem with both of the products and they very compact
and easy to use." - Leslie Jarrett, London Branch, The Bank of East
|"We've now been using this [SPLTOOL] for over 5 years.
We've had, in that time, a sum total of 2 events that required us to seek
help from you. In 5 years. 2 times. I don't think I 've ever had a software
package anywhere near as stable." - Christopher J. Devous, Director
of Systems Development, The Antigua Group
|"Great job! Our SMTP Process on the ISeries went south
and the MAILTOOL Plus functionality was a lifesaver!" - Michael
Kenny, University of Windsor
|“BVSTools.com sells software that provides more functionality
and ease of use than all of their 'bigger' competitors, yet they manage
to offer better prices, and 'one on one' tech support second to none. With
free 30 day trials, and excellent installation support, you'd be crazy not
to try BVSTools.com software before spending your money anywhere else."
- Art Tostaine, Jr., CCA, Inc.
|“I have used SPLTOOL and MAILTOOL for more than 6 years
now. Originally, SPLTOOL replaced a 16 page “manual” of screen prints designed
to assist users in downloading spooled files. SPLTOOL, alone, replaced the
manual with a 5 second learning curve and a single keystroke. When I start
working with a new consulting client, regardless of their experience level,
the first thing I do is install SPLTOOL and teach them how to use it. I
am an “evangelist” for BVS Tools and can’t imagine a more affordable, or
more useful, solution." - Geoff Wiggs, Orcas
|"eRPG technology is amazing way for small/medium companies
to get their business software plugged in to the internet without having
to deal with the limitations of Webfacing Hats and other bridging technologies,
or the cost/complexity of Websphere/J2EE. I believe the speed and granularity
of eRPG’s access to the AS/400 database makes it easier and faster to develop
real-world applications than using JDBC/ODBC solutions like ASP, Perl, or
eRPG has a particular advantage for companies with experienced RPG people
who already have experience with the local data and business rules.
I was able to get the HTTP server up and Bradley’s examples working within
a day. By the second day I had a basic add/modify customer address screen
going." - Martin Cytryn, Analyst Programmer, Midrange systems, Montreal,
|"My client wanted to perform real-time street validation
using UPS Online Tools. This required an HTTP POST of XML data and the use
of SSL. Thanks to GETURI I was able to develop and implement the project
quickly and easily. The client is extremely happy, so much so that they
are now looking towards using similar techniques to use other services supplied
by UPS, e.g. Shipment Tracking. GETURI works great and Bradley's support
has been excellent." - Andy Stafford, Sr. Technical Consultant,
The Mesa Group, Jacksonville FL.
|"I just wanted to follow-up with you and let you know
that our testing has gone very well and your tool is a big reason why. Thanks
to your GETURI tool we saved a ton of development time and delivered a very
fast and functional product. Thanks for your support and suggestions."
- Dan McTamney, Sr Programmer/Analyst, DeLage Landen Financial Services
|"I really enjoyed your book on developing AS\400 applications
for the web. By using your book as a reference, we were able to develop
an application that allows our customers to enter their own orders directly
into our system, which makes our Customer Service Group a 24x7 operation
and frees up valuable internal resources. We had over $700K in orders entered
by one customer over a recent three-month period. Thanks again for providing
this valuable resource." - Ron Schmidt, I.T. Director, Sensient
|"...I have been programming since 1975 on System 3’s ,
system 38’s, AS400’s and am actually a certified technical specialist on
V4.4, yours is the first book [e-RPG] I actually find easy to relate to."
- James A. Reynolds, Chief Information Officer, Techvalley Communications
"We were struggling with untangling the mess of understanding and
controlling FTP and writing exit programs to process what we received.
FTPTOOL simplified the process 1000%. Easy to install and set up and supported
by a software vendor who really cares. Wish all software vendors were
as easy to deal with and as supportive!" - Lee Woxen, States Logistics
|"Just wanted to let you know I have been coding e-rpg
now for about 6 months. We got your second book e-RPG (v2) a few weeks ago
and I love it!! It's better than the first. I have written about 50 e-rpg
programs since my 1st in November. I think this is the way of the future
for RPG. When we have shown our applications to the end users, the response
has been " Great !! Can you make the current [insert application] work like
this as well?" - Todd Nashville, Mestek, Inc.
|"MAILTOOL is a very great tool. I can use this to
automate many applications. The tool is very simple to use, and most importantly,
your support is instantaneous!" - Chin Mongkol, Corporate Information
Management Service, Inc.
|"Since we are at the start of a project offering creditcard
payments over the Internet our first goal has been reached : prove that
it was fairly simple to communicate with other companies... Thanks to the
GETURI command we convinced everybody that it is possible." - Richard
Aalten, Team Leader, Dutch Chambers of Commerce

i will use e-RPG rather ASP! Brad you got a ***great impact*** about this
new orientation in my college about teaching e-business using e-RPG!!!"

|"Your e-RPG book is now our standard training guide
for CGI programming." - Dave Hanneman, Senior Systems Analyst, Wallace
|"Just another quick note to say thank you once again
for producing another excellent book, of course I am referring to the e-RPG(V2)
book... Your two books e-RPG and e-RPG(v2) surely must be the de-facto standard
for producing CGI using RPG." - André M. Ray, IBM Global Services
"I just downloaded SPLTOOL, MAILTOOL, and OUTQTRG and love it! I've
been looking at several other tools available and they don't even compare.
These are straight forward, simple to install, easy to configure, easy
to use, and a very small footprint. It looks like I will be able to implement
these tools into our daily processing with ease. So far the testing has
been very positive as I'm sure that it will continue to roll on with out
hassle. Thank you.
Oh I didn't even mention the price is so affordable that I might even
get a raise this year with all the money that I'm saving for us!!!"
- Rich Bateman, Core Support Manager, American Bank of Texas
|"Just started using your products yesterday - Great
stuff! I looked at GUMBO and a few others but yours is the simplest to use,
and you cannot beat the price. I even looked at INFOPRINT server for V5R1."
- Bryan Burns, AS/400 System Operator, ECHO Incorporated
"I wanted to drop you a line thanking you for your help getting
SPLTOOL up and running. By using your tool and an article you wrote in
March 2000's Midrange Computing, I was able to create an application that
monitors an output queue and distributes spoolfiles in PDF & HTML format
onto my NT server. With your PDF engine at its core, this program will
save us many dollars in paper and printer costs, as well as providing
a secure and dependable report archival system.
Thanks for your ideas and your programs!" - Patrick Shrader
"SPLTOOL addresses the gap between generating an AS/400 spool file
and getting it to our users in the formats they require to get their job
The tool installed quickly and effortlessly and is very 'user-friendly'.
I have already recommended this tool to another AS/400 shop.
Thank you for your prompt attention to any questions I had regarding
the SPLTOOL utility. It's a pleasure to deal with someone who is "customer"
oriented." - Anna Torres, Senior Application Programmer, Celanese
"SPLTOOL handles a very simple, but valuable, process. It makes
simple the publication of AS/400 based reports as web pages with no muss,
no fuss and for a fraction of the cost of similar tools. SPLTOOL also
handles a plethora of other spool file management tasks.
It installs simply, works well, is stable, and is well supported by its
You have already wasted 100 times the registration fee on pain in the
ass report "publishing" software (that requires a 42 step process and
a whole lot of prayer). Try SPLTOOL. Use three keystrokes. It works.
It has been my experience that SPLTOOL reduces aspirin consumption by
73%." - Christopher J. Devous, Director of Systems Development,
The Antigua Group
"SPLTOOL has helped us to improve the distribution of spool files
to different out queues.
It makes it a very simple thing for the common user to select pieces
of information and print only what they need saving resources (paper,
ribbons, etc.) and time.
Downloading a spool file to a PC has become a routine task thanks to
your software." - Ismael Rodriguez, Information Systems Manager,
Bacardi Bottling Corporation
"SPLTOOL allows us to make reports easily accessible to our end-users,
while also offering security features to allow them to view and print
reports (including printing page ranges!), and not delete them.
Through our menu-based systems, end-users can view reports without having
to know 'techy' stuff like OUTQ names, the name of the user who produced
the report, etc.
Our technical users love the functions like copying spool files to database
files, etc. Overall, it provides an invaluable interface for both technical
and non-technical users at Zenith." - Scott Lindstrom, Sr Systems
Administrator, Zenith Electronics Corp.
"I was really shocked. My dreams became true with this tool. Our
users really appreciate SPLTOOL and they can't live anymore without it.
Great tool, great price and last but not least great author." -
