Hello to the group

David,

Glad to see someone else who's new to Vantage on the list! Good luck
with your implementation. Ours was 9 months, but we needed every
moment.
We have 15 users, 6 MES, and 5 MobileConnect licenses. I haven't
started using the web services yet, but it's on the list. Customer
Service wants a completely web-driven interface so they can enter a
call from any computer in the company. So I figure I'll be
developing an ASP.Net interface around the first of the year. Let me
know if there's anything I can help with or any questions I can
answer for you.

Everyone,

I just joined the group earlier this week and wanted to say hi. My
company went live with version 8 on October 1st, and it's our first
Vantage product. Having just been through the implementation process,
I'll be more than happy to answer any questions. I was project manager,
so I have plenty of "war stories" to swap as well! Bear with me if I
don't answer right away. I'm only subscribed to the daily digest. If you
have a pressing question, feel free to email me directly.

Thanks,

Ron Cole, IT Manager

We are right now upgrading 8.00.708 to 8.00.803 on our test server so
I'll be emailing you. One of the things you probably can't help us with
is the constant updating of the database that will have to take place -
our last data is from March and Ben Nixon had to help. He was here an
entire day plus had to go back and do some research - he used webex to
login and fix it for good but it took an entire morning. And, he's the
professional.



We're finally excited about 8.0 - it was working much better this year
at Perspectives.



Thank you,



Sue

Data updating is always going to be an issue. We still have quantities
that aren't right even after several updates. We're running SQL, and
we've done several updates internally without going through anyone at
Epicor. We develop our own SQL apps, so we have the expertise for that.
How many other people are currently running SQL? Also, I guess I should
have told everyone that we're currently at 803c. I don't usually like to
roll them out so quickly, but we need to get ExpressShip up and running
ASAP.

Ben Nixon is really great! I haven't seen him since January for the
initial install, but I know I'll need him back for MobileConnect. I
really enjoyed Perspectives, hopefully I can make it a yearly event.

Thanks,

We too are just starting our implementation and are new to Vantage. We are
running SQL as well as doing a lot of custom development. Ron, how many
users are you running and have you had any experience using the Vantage web
services?
