Wow, thank you so much for the wonderful dialogue regarding this question! I appreciate everyone's opinion and have gotten some valuable feedback. My position at our college is a brand new position so we are experiencing the wide world of AT for the first time. It is all exciting and very rewarding to see students succeed with the help of a computer program!

I totally agree. I dislike how Premier has been pushed as the end all be all solution for post-secondary accessibility. The aggressive marketing makes it's difficult to explain the pros and cons of other products when the administrative powers that be are looking for the cheapest way out. I think Premier is fine as solution for people who may not have the means to purchase an expensive AT product. However, I don't think it's the greatest solution in terms of ease of use, compatibility and support in a large enterprise environment. It's always better to have a variety of tools in your AT toolbox and not just one.
