    Matt Fenby Taylor

Without this ability we would be weeks behind schedule.”

The features we use most are the backup and queries, also in relation with the scheduler. A nice-to-have feature would be a mailer function where, for instance, a result of a query could be sent to a specific user.”

Navicat truly makes it easier to administer mySQL than any other product I have tried.”

    Matthew Ryan

The purchase was simple, and the product is now up and running. Since we need to develop additional databases, I am sure it will help us make that management much easier.”

    Doug Stoner

    Manager of Computer Services

    Florida State University

    “Navicat really helped easily get my excel data into mysql, and Navicat makes it easy to maintain using a GUI, rather than the line commands, or tedium of phpMyAdmin for multiple edits.

    I am sure Navicat will have more to offer, as my database matures. I can't comment on the documentation, because I've been able to figure out the few things I need to do just from the menus and icons on screen.”
