I second what karl says below. If they won't let you try out their tool yourself, you should understand that probably means there is a reason for that stance.
We did not select this tool at Ohio State when we were evaluating tools.

As Sarah Bourne mentioned, there are limitations to what automated
testing tools can do, but you probably already knew that. ;-)
I have some articles on my blog on this topic:
Since Compliance Sheriff is a competitor, I won't comment
specifically. One thing worth mentioning is that you should always
ask for a trial. Not just a demo of the product, but a trial period
long enough for you to give the product a fair shake. You should avoid
any product vendor who won't do this.
