For those of you who like a more "self-paced" method of training, the Flash demonstrations provide a very good training session and an accurate depiction of how the program works and provides an overview of the initial setup that is required.  It is highly recommended that you either view either the self-paced or audio/video training, as they will answer most of your questions and alleviate the feeling of "ok, now I have it - what do I do with it" feeling that often occurs when evaluating new software.

If none of the above mentioned training methods appeal to you, you can purchase a 1, 2, or 4-hour training contract with a Sunburst Support Representative from our order page.

  • This trial has date limitations!  You will be able to generate plain paper AIA billings, contract documents, certified payroll reports, EEOC reports, and benefit reports for a date range that is 30 days prior to and 30 days after today's date - providing you with ample means to fully evaluate the software.
  • Free Trials do not expire, provided you work within the original 60 day window of time.
  • Wage Manager Solution will not write changes back to QuickBooks.
  • Purchasing the program will grant you your own valid company license, allow you to install the program on multiple computers under that single license, remove watermarks, remove date limitations, and enable you to keep the data that you have already setup up.
  • A manual, in .pdf format, will be installed with the program, accessed via an icon on your desktop.
  • In-program help will be available from each screen by clicking the questionmark (?) in the lower right corner of each screen.
