Films on Elestore, EleFamily and Elepub

These films show you the most important features of Elestore and of other EleFamily products in Flash films of different durations.

All films are with audio

You should run these films on a PC with audio and speakers, because otherwise you will only get a small part of the information. Not all films are yet in English and the rest of this page will be translated soon, please excuse the DeutschEnglish meanwhile.

By the way, the author has produced the first films on software in 1987 !!!, which was done by using very expensive U-matic equipment and they were distributed on VHS, a true novelty then.

Please understand:

These films make "a hell of a lot of work" and this is why not yet all planned films are available and why some are already outdated insofar as new software releases have been developed with more new features.

It's just impossible to have everything permanently up-to-date. We are anyway offfering much more and much more detailed information than any other vendor of comparable software that we know of.

These films explain the software but they do not contain any statement on the features of the software. The only binding statements on the capabilities and features of the software can be found in the data sheets on the particular software product.
