Citavi Comments

great customer service

Positive Comment by Danny123456
about Citavi Jul 2015

Very good program with many useful features but first of all fantastic customer support! I needed a function that was not available in the standard version. My request was answered within minutes and a few hours later I had installed a macro which allowed me to do everything I wanted to. I have never experienced such a good customer service before! Absolutely recommendable!
