Expand Inc and President Rafiah Kashmiri introduce new Library

Expand Inc and President Rafiah Kashmiri introduce new Library

1. New Library

Expand has developed a library of objects you can use to create
resource allocation architectures. The library is called "Queue".
You
may download the Queue installer from the VSO website and start
creating your own architectures. Three files will be installed on your
computer:

a. The file queue.mdb is the entity repository for the Queue objects.
It will be installed in "My Documents\VSO Documents\VSO Databases".

b. The file queue.dll contains the executable functions for the Queue
objects. It will be installed in "My Documents\VSO Documents\VSO
Libraries".

c. The file queue.ppt describes the library and how to use it. It will
be installed in "My Documents\VSO Documents".

Comments and suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Please send them
to Brian Woodring. If you have any problems using VSO or the Queue
library, either send an email describing the problems you are
experiencing or call John Woodring at (904) 646-0552.

Nature of Business
The Company's services are primarily marketed by a network of scouts, most of whom are independent contractors. The scouts identify potential customers for the company's online database. The sales process has three basic steps: 1) A potential customer is approached by a scout who extends an invitation to an "open call," 2) Interested customers visit a corporate-owned or franchised office to learn more about the service including the cost. A future appointment is made to conclude the sale. 3) The potential customer is typically contacted by telephone by the Company's Orlando sales office. Interested customers purchase the service at this time. The Company is not an agency nor does it make any promise of the customer will receive inquiries for work. Additionally, the Company is non-discriminatory with respect to accepting customers.

Customer Experience
Based on BBB files, this company has an unsatisfactory record with the Bureau due to a pattern of complaints concerning misrepresentation in selling practices, including that the consumer is being "selected" to be on the Company's website, the Company's representatives convey a sense of urgency, specifically, a decision must be made immediately or lose the chance to be listed with the company for another year, and that customers are being charged for three months of service at a time instead of $19.95 per month. Complaints request refunds. The company has responded to most complaints presented by the Bureau, however, some complaints were closed as unresolved or unanswered. According to the Company, they "no longer offer a system-wide 3-day right to refund as the laws of each state and the policy of each franchise's owner dictate the refund policy in each particular office."
