    Hi Perry!

    I’ve been visiting your site every now and then to help me in my work as a product development specialist. I’m currently looking into formulation softwares and I wonder if you could perhaps help me out and do a podcast on these? I also read your article and used your list as a starting line for softwares to look into.

    Thank you very much!

      See the podcast on Valdata software. That one will give you an idea of the type of software you can use.
