Hi Legacy Users,
We are working very hard to get things ready to release to everyone. The software is mostly ready with just a few more things that we are finishing up and getting ready for prime time.
It's a huge effort to release a program like Legacy and believe me we are working very hard. Doing a pre-release at NGS is a simple thing as all we have to do is take Legacy and the new books and sell them. Officially releasing takes a bunch of very time consuming behind the scenes work like re-working our website, getting our online store ready for orders, improving our ordering system, mailing lists, press releases, training videos and getting all the other things I can't even think about right now that have to be done for a release of a new product.
We have hired several people to help with the shipping. For the last 10 months we have been selling Legacy 6.0 with the promise that if they buy it we will give them a free Legacy 7.0 as soon as it's ready. These people have already paid for v7 and we have many, many, many thousands of these people waiting for their promised copies. It's going to take a while to get all these backordered copies out the door, even with all the people we have setup to help. This is a huge project, bigger than we have ever undertaken in the history of our company. We will begin shipping these promised copies starting early next week.
During the week or two that it's going to take to get this huge backlog of orders out the door we'll be working on all the other items needed to go live on our website with v7. It's coming soon and we really are working around the clock trying to get the long awaited Legacy 7.0 out to all of you.
We appreciate your patience and we'll try hard to keep everyone informed as to how it's going. From what we have seen as we have demonstrated Legacy 7 at the various conferences the last couple months we believe all of you will agree that the wait will have been worth it. We have had such positive feedback from the pre-release of Legacy Charting and when we have shown the new source system people have been really excited about it. The source template project was a huge undertaking that you are going to love. It took several man years and cost several hundred thousand dollars to put together this new system. It's so cool and it is going to help everyone do their sources the right way the first time.
We value all of our users and appreciate all that each of you have done to help Legacy become the great success that it has become. If it wasn't for all of you helping us get the word out to your friends and family we wouldn't be enjoying the growth we have seen. A huge THANK YOU to all of you.
Thanks, Ken McGinnis
