We've spent a lot of time developing this system and we'd like as many bureaux to benefit as possible. If you have contact with other bureaux that you think might be able to use the system - especially now it can be web-based - please consider letting them know about the system and our web site: www.SeeITA.com/CAB.

Thank you.
