All in all, our relationship with Emphasys Software has, and continues to be, positive and I would highly recommend Emphasys to any public housing agency for their software needs.

Emphasys staff were able to explain the enhanced software components and modules in a complete and easily understood way to myself and my team. Emphasys staff were not only able to communicate with a wide range of team members but they also provided our agency high quality written and electronic documentation complete with step by step screen shot visuals which allowed for the efficient transfer of knowledge and future training on the system. The quality of their work has consistently exceeded our expectations.
