Comments: We still rely on this software for our creation of customer orders and sales orders, and tracking of inventory and costs of goods. But we have needed more versatility in the area of accounting as our company's need for increased managerial accounting reports grows.

Pros: The data is stored successfully, and usable, correct reports are available. Every component of the software successfully works for all divisions of our manufacturing company - including sales, inventory, purchasing and accounting.

Cons: Cannot reverse certain steps in data retrieval without starting over completely. This "choppy" progression of steps makes it easy to make a mistake and have to start over to retrieve data or have to start over to go to the next query for more data.

A happy and faithful user since 1990, need I say more?

Pros: I have been using this product since its inception when it was out of Pryor, OK. It has evolved considerably since then. I can quickly do what if's for capital improvement projects and whip off a quote in minutes. It requires very little maintenance and works well with other software products like Excel, Access, and Quicken. It supports every function that I used to use while I was at a Fortune 250 company. Everything I need for the day to day operations is available to evaluate COGS, Inventory Control, all quality functions, BOM's, Routings, PO's, and Scheduling. I have real time access to every phase of my operation and I can quickly update any field to reflect any changes in man, material, or machine.

Cons: I have always received great customer support. Many people complain that it doesn't do payroll. The original versions did but after doing an analysis of cost and effect I transferred payroll to an outside vendor (Paychex) and it was one of the best moves I could have made. My biggest complaint from the very beginning is the same one I have for almost any product in this category so I have to temper my response as a personal preference and that is, it is structured so that each operation is regarded as having 100% yield which is never in the real world. I have always preferred to be able to assign my own yields to the routings and BOM's.

Recommendations to other buyers: Focus on what is important in the manufacturing of your product. If you are trying to do it all in-house you are not applying your skills to where they are needed most. Let an outside vendor do your payroll and all the taxes that are associated with labor. Let them write the payroll checks and pay the taxes and send you the reports that can be imported into your accounting software. Yes, I was so glad during the growth of this product that they did not want to support either payroll or accounting. Quicken or many other software programs can track and maintain all of your PO's, AR, and AP functions and they can be done without you spending countless hours on no value added functions. All of the data that these accounting software packages provide work easily and well in DBA and your financial statements can be generated at any time through the included modules inherent in DBA.
