I thought this plug-in was perfect for my needs and when I wanted to add more locations I switched to the paid version. Works great with plenty of support!

bei Problemen wird auf Zeit gespielt und wenn das Problem nicht gelöst wurde gibts das Geld nicht zurück. Kundenfreundlicher Service geht anders.
