Pros: I found Fabtrol pretty easy to use. There are so many different things you can do. I only use the basics for inventory.
FabTrol Pro is great. Using it in the Structural Steel industry helps out tremendously.

Pros: FabTrol Pro is a huge upgrade from FabTrol MRP. The interface is more Windows user friendly. The ability to adjust forms to fit your need is super easy. One of the best changes they made going from MRP to Pro was the ability to drag and drop. It took forever to hand enter the information before. Now, what use to take 5 hours, take 5 seconds
Cons: The biggest problem i have found with the software is it is limited when it comes to integrating the different modules. The are items on the Project Management or Purchasing area that I wish i could have automatically generate in the shipping/receiving area.
Overall: This software made my job so much simpler. At one point I was in control of Purchasing, Document Control, Shipping/Receiving, and general shop duties and this software made it so that I could do everything i needed to do at one desk without having move from office to office. The flow is nice and it makes sense.
