We need your opinion for the version 3.0 of Grottocenter!

We started to work on the version 3 .0 of GrottoCenter which will be available early 2014. To provide the best possible service we would like to know the opinion of our users. You can share with us your point of view about the new features that you would like to see or about the difficulties that you encountered with the current version of GrottoCenter by filling out this short online questionnaire .
