TimeGain

It has a color coded interface, and there are no limitations on the number of different billing plans per customer. Invoices, welcome letters and correspondence can be emailed directly from within the program, and unpaid customers are automatically chased by email on a daily basis.

ZipBurst

[url=http://www.dantowitz.com/]ZipBurst[/url] lets ISPs create a zip code based search engine to find the closest locations by distance from a zip code. The ZipBurst Generator creates an index file that is used by the ZipBurst CGI, running on a web server.
