      Hello Wanjiru, There are many different software companies as you have discovered. We hold a policy of finding the right software for the client, as opposed to a one-solution-fits-all approach. That said we have two wonderful companies that we recommend you research listed on the “Meet the A-Team” page. Those companies are a great starting place for anyone doing research into MLM/Party Plan/Direct Selling Software. If you would like to discuss other companies that you may be looking at, please feel free to contact us at the number listed above.
