Okino is a company run first and foremost by developers and as such answering your questions directly results in the best and most efficient use of our software in your hands. Also, almost every customer has unique questions relating to their use of PolyTrans & NuGraf in their enterprise, and hence we prefer to provide personal one-on-one answers and discussions.
