GBS is Freeware with the following conditions:
GBS Consultants can be appointed by Randy Marques Consultancy only.


For a simple project you can start using GBS quickly and keep in mind that everything has its place.
I strongly suggest reading the 'Getting Started' part in the GBS Help.
Following the instructions in Create a GBS-WA/System will quickly set you on track.

The power of GBS it its concept.
So on the long run this means that in order for you to use GBS to its full extent, you must understand the concept and use GBS as intended.
