Beta Testers Needed for IT Project, Task and Request Management System

My friend Michael Lato sent me an email asking if I would take a look at his newest venture called WorkTamer. I've reached saturation at least for the next couple months, so had to decline, but offered instead to post his offer here in hopes that a few of you might offer him some feedback. I think we all struggle with task and time management and with every tool I've looked at it, it's success depends on whether you can mold it to suit you rather than vice versa. He seems to be putting some emphasis on that area, so maybe he'll have a winner!

In any case, here's the info:

WorkTamer Beta Program:
We are looking for beta testers!  WorkTamer is an all-in-one project, task and request management system built for IT professionals with one key unique feature: using the priorities that you establish, it determines the finish dates for all of your projects and tasks.  It accounts for the work schedule that you enter as well as the calendar that you maintain in the system.  This allows you to answer that difficult question: when can you have this done?
Our beta testers will receive a 100-user account for 6 months as a thank you once the beta program wraps up.  You can sign up for the beta using this link: http://www.worktamer.com/beta.cfm

I sincerely doubt anybody would be willing to do these kinds of things for free (especially in this economy). I think MSFT should give something, I mean some $, w/o that nobody would be interested...

SQLEmail - this isn't a Microsoft beta and while it would be nice to get paid for testing MS beta's, I don't see that happening. Many people enjoy the beta process and see it as a chance to both stay up to date and to influence product direction.

Also, in this case Michael is offering free access for a limited time on the release product. Not quite the same as getting paid, but he's tryinng to offer something in return for your time.
