Seen loads of the running, (Granite's Xpercom which I have used a lot  
in the POS industry and which is a pain, Telcordia which back then was  
known to be even worse...), none of them was worth a dime...
Then I saw that brilliant combination which was Comptel + Visionael,  
it did mass provisioning and inventory systems for a whole national

mix/tune them together, but once done ...
