After trying others, looking at how they worked (or didn't), and looking at their features and prices I realized, this is one sweet deal. Its clean, simple and does its job. Support is quick to reply. Thank you.

I used to use TextBlaze which did a great job. But their team plans start at $6.50/user/month.
