Reviews of MACH Software Write a Review
An anonymous MACH Software user says...
The program has a basic kitting module which is nice but it doesn’t talk to our digital press. And although the company offers web services, they are not easy plug-and-play solutions that work with our website. Besides the web integration, the software has served us well. Having reviewed other options, I would rate the software pretty high compared to others I’ve seen.
