Top 5 things we heard in our Booth at MacWorld

OK, so shipping isn’t as exciting as the new MacAir and the loads of Ipod accessories – but plenty of Mac-users stopped by NRG’s booth at MacWorld Expo – and were more than pleased to discover a Mac shipping solution.

Here is the top 5 things we heard.

  1. You mean I can rid of that PC I have for shipping?
  2. My UPS guy told me I couldn’t use a Mac with a Zebra printer.
  3. We waste so much time re-keying data from other systems.
  4. It’s about time someone solved this for the Mac user.
  5. You can integrate it with….. Filemaker, Quickbooks, MYOB, AcctVantage, Lightspeed –  Really?
