Testimonials Minimize
Some people think that maintaining 200,000 names on a PC-based system is nuts. WRONG! First Edition is not only networked and working like a charm. If a subscriber calls with a question, anyone in the office can switch to FE with a single keystroke, and then return to their work in other programs.
Len and his staff have also worked with us to integrate credit card deposits and orders from the outside 800 number service we use.
Since 1988 we've outgrown our offices...mail machines...accounting packages...and computers. The one thing that has kept pace with our growth is First Edition. BUY IT!

Lynx Media has been a dream come true for my company. This mazing software has taken us out of the dark ages into a wonderful circulation enviornment that is both thorough and easy to use. We publish several sports publications and Lynx has given us the ability to do so many things we never thought possible. I just wish I had found Lynx years ago.

First Edition has brought our fulfillment into the 21st century. The
Windows version has been just what we needed -- a modern system capable
of providing efficient and flexible support for our operations.
Everything in the changing world of newsletter publishing should be as
predictably reliable as First Edition.

-Alan Sosenko, Publisher

I was looking for a comprehensive Windows-based solution to manage the circulation of our publications and First Edition clearly was easiest to use. We have been very happy with the program in the two years since we started using it
