Turnover manages both new development and modifications very smoothly. Once you have your brain around the core concepts of how software change management works, and also have a grasp of checking out code, promoting changes to higher levels and distributing to remote system then Turnover is intuitive and straight forward. However, if you are still on the learning curve, without the proper grounding you can run in circles.
Turnover can be configured to be as tight or as loose, as simple or as complex as needs dictate. It comes with a 5250 menu system and also a Windows based V100 client with many time saving enhancements. Sometimes the Windows Client is much easier to use… but sometimes its quicker to use some of the functions onyl available in green screen.
