How did MYPS get started and how long have you been providing
software solutions in the CMR community?
A: MYPS was actually started by a CMR, American Yellow Page
Network (AYPN) over 10 years ago as an in-house solution.
Being a Macintosh shop, AYPN developed what was then called
Macintosh Yellow Page System. Several CMR's learned of the
software's ease of use and asked to purchase it. Eventually,
CMR's approached AYPN to build a Microsoft Windows version,
and with that MYPS was born - and now stands for Multi-tasking
Yellow Pages System. In 2004, MYPS separated from AYPN into MYPS, Inc.
How has MYPS grown as a software program?
A: One of the great things about the MYPS software is that
it has grown in size and scope as a result of requests received
by CMR's. Literally thousands of requests have come in over
the years, helping MYPS cater to its industry.
What are your hours of operation for technical support?
A: Regular technical support hours are from 6:00am to 5:00pm
PST, and we have technical support offices in Oregon, New
York, and Maryland. We also offer afterhours technical support in
case of emergencies to all of our clients.
