Software Beta Testers Needed

The original writers of the children's software JumpStart are looking for beta testers for their new software "My Reward Board" I was contacted directly by Barton Listick, CEO of the company. He is looking for some parents to help test out their new software program.

I don't know anything about the software other than what I am including in this post. We have decided to try the software and help work out bugs. If you are also interested you can contact him at beta@trylonix.com, let him know that Tenniel from SCHOOL@HOME referred you. Here is the information I was sent:


My Reward Board" Beta Test Program

As parents we all struggle to get our kids to do the things they should (or need to) do. Some tasks are practical, like helping with dishes or doing homework, while others are behavioral, like not teasing a sibling. The reason we care at all (beyond the benefits of a clean room!) is that we want our kids to grow into responsible, healthy and happy adults.

That’s where My Reward Board fits in. With reward coupons, fun animations and achievement certificates, this unique program turns chores and goals into fun and games. Before long your kids will be striving every day to do their best as they eagerly await the end of the week and their star points reward. The program is very configurable in order to accommodate different parenting styles.

Participants will receive a free copy of the program when it's released in 1-2 months.

The only requirements for participation are that you have children ages 5 to 12, and a Pentium II (or better) computer, running at 400 mhz (or faster), with the Windows operating system (Windows 98 or later).

If you agree to help out, the most important thing we ask is that you use the program frequently, try out all of the features, and give us as much feedback as possible. The first priority is to find and fix any bugs (problems) in the program, but we also want to hear your ideas on what you like and what could be added or changed to make it better.

If you'd like to apply please send an email to: beta@trylonix.com
