Suprtool
We have built a list of consulting resources for our customers - people who know the Suprtool, Suprtool-based applications and Qedit. These people can help you with implementation and conversions and migration from HP-UX to Linux and other platforms. (Note: with Suprtool/Open you can migrate to almost any desired platform.)
