Do you really need Desktop Insight now that Insight-live is here?

No. Insight-live has a much broader scope and is far superior, it is the future (it still does the chemistry but is much more about data and access-from-anywhere). We still support desktop Insight for users who need to convert data for import to insight-live or who must work off-line.

What People Have Said

"I want a more scientific approach ... the way the things were getting done was sort of copy (from acquaintances or friends from other companies) and paste (in this company) of the compositions. I need to teach my people in the company how to work out the composition for body and glaze."

"I wish I would have upgraded sooner, it has been many years, there are so many improvements in the 2008 version."

"I am so relieved that there is a workaround because your software is definitely head and shoulders above the rest."
