Quick Post : Update on the Verge Consulting Products

We have had a few questions recently around the Verge Consulting Products and the fact that it would seam that they are no longer available. At this stage we have not had any Official Confirmation from Verge , and the web site still suggests that they are Alive and Well, but we believe that they are no longer offering any consulting services in the Data Collection area.

With all that said we have removed , temporarily all the posts about the Verge Products so that we do not cause any more confusion. As soon as we hear anything official , or if Verge would like to comment on this post , we will let you know.

Perhaps the code for these products could become Open Source or be added to the DDL ? We would be willing to look after the code if it went Open-Source if that was an option. It would be a shame to lose the products  they have produced as they have given allot of value to many customers.
