Builder Pre Sales Question

I'm having a bit of a hard time trying to figure out what you're asking here. But a generic reply, Builder is "just" a WordPress theme. If, as you say, you have used other WordPress themes, then your employees will work with and access Builder just as they did with any other theme. There is no difference between Builder, or a Child theme for Builder, or using Remedy or Flexx or twenty-eleven. And as with any theme you purchase, you are free to use it on as many sites as you want.
There is no such thing as a "starter theme". builder does not make a child folder. You can use one of the child themes iThemes provides, or you can create your own child theme if you wish to do so. Read more about child themes (the concept), you may want to check the Builder Codex (http://ithemes.com/forum/forum/128-builder-codex/). Builder should be uploaded to the wp-content/themes folder, and so should a child theme. For a child theme to work, Builder simply needs to exists in the same folder as the child theme (generally, this is wp-content/themes).
We've also setup a trial environment, so if you want to "toy" with Builder (and the acute child theme), give it a go!
Please let me know if I misunderstand, of if you have more specific concerns and questions, and I will try to address these,
