"I set up each police officer that comes to my yard with their own BOSS back office access, they don't even call me any more, ha ha I love it. They can instantly see what I have bought and when they show up to my yard they already have it printed out, they just need to take their own pictures onsite.
On top of that...the county judges said it was better than my verbal recount of the situation so I no longer have to go to court. Clint Kelley, Sumiton Iron & Metal, AL
