Data Collection work queue is slower. In some cases, much slower. Purchase
suggestions generation is slower. Watch the posting of labor to GL - can't
perform labor edit for that time period posted ever again.

There are always features with new versions that are good and make it
better. It's not like upgrading Office 97 or Windows NT v.4.0, which you
have to buy, you have already paid for this upgrade - I'm just surprised at
the number of people who haven't upgraded yet. For as many problems we had,
and despite the shortcoming listed above, we are glad we upgraded when we
did, because there were many benefits.

Alright Epicor, you can send me my salesman of the year award now.

On the other hand, let me just say, I think Epicor's quality assurance
testing isn't so good, and because of that, I can understand some of the
reluctance of some users to upgrade. Office 97 has been out for about 3.5
years now and has only had two service releases to fix problems. Wow, they
sure have some good QA testing. Windows NT 4.0 has been around quite awhile
and has 6 service packs. We have a couple of CAD packages that upgrade
annually with maybe one or two patches during that year. It has been almost
8 months since Vantage 4.0 has been out and how many patches have we had?
Wow, that sure is some good QA testing!!!!!! and how much did I pay for
that?

But I would like to ask, who will be the first to upgrade to 5.0? I know I
won't. Somebody has too, because how else will Epicor know what to do in
the first patch.

P.S. don't forget the Progress patches and configuration.

We are going to migrate to vantage 4.0 on labor day weekend. We have
had Vantage 4.0 installed on a test server for about the past six
weeks, and the main changes are obvious. But in an attempt to live past
the first week after the migration, I would like to ask those who
have gone into production with the new version if you would be kind
enough to let me know what surprises you encountered in terms of
your users screaming at you for changes within the various modules.
Also would like to know of positive feedback. We have all modules
except EDI, MRP,and payroll.
TIA
