Pros: FabSuite is very straightforward in its operations. It's been running the same way and looked the same way for a long time so when you talk to those that used it a few years ago, there is still a good bit of similarities that can be discussed if needed. It is a smooth software due to them not changing it a lot over the years. It lets them really hone in on the software's strengths.

Cons: The fact that they haven't changed the layout is bit of a double edged sword. The world we live in is constantly changing. FabSuite needs to do the same soon. FabTrol did it a few years ago when they went from MRP to Pro. They changed the interface to more of an updated Windows style layout with ribbons, etc. FabSuite could definitely use a makeover.

Overall: FabSuite gets the job done as far as Purchasing goes. It allows for room to grow and change and is easy to pickup and run with so we've been able to train more than our fair share of people how to use it.

Hard to learn, not intuitive, has an old-style feel and look from 1990's.

Pros: It can do almost everything you want, if you learn how to make it do that first. Too busy to learn, so end up not using all those nice features.

Cons: Have to upgrade into 2020's fast. Get tied into internet, for web-based searches. Make exporting files and spreadsheets easier by clicking on columns or rows to include. Make import of data easier by simple scanning.

Overall: Works fast and accurate once you learned it. Provides good base data. Has a ridgid inflexible feel to it.
