ApexSQL is my formidable work instrument. I'm a high ROI CRM consultant, and I use this kind of product every day for my projects. ApexSQL is a perfect instrument for my work and a great aid to my productivity.

I’ve been using ApexSQL tools since around 2006. ApexSQL Trigger, ApexSQL Diff and ApexSQL Data Diff are my favorites… though ApexSQL Log, and its ability to roll back any change, has been a life saver more than once. I’ve had the pleasure of purchasing ApexSQL Universal with 4 different employers and hope to continue using it until I retire.
