Percent of sites on 8.0+

In partial answer to my earlier post I have information from a recent local user group meeting.

V8+
Shipped to: 1,275 sites
Running Live: 300-400 sites

Status (live or not):
Reviewing:........548
No Issues........450 (known by Epicor anyway)
Minor Issues....113
Serious Issues.....3
Critical Issues......8
Upgrading without Epicor involvement.....153

This info was straight from Epicor. I suspect it will be re-presented and/or updated at Perspectives. It still does not tell me how many total Vantage sites there are in order to derive a percentage live on 8.0+ but it was enough to get test server approved. HP Proliant ML 350 (Dual-Core Xeon 5050 @ 3Ghz, 2GB RAM, 2 X 80GB SATA 7,200rpm drives). All it needs to do is support trialing on 2-3 clients and conversion to Crystal so hoping it will handle that.

Has anyone been told or heard anything form Epicor regarding the following:
Number of sites running Vantage (any version)
Number of sites running 8.0/8.03
Any percentage number of sites who have run any version prior to 8.0 and are running 8.0 now (migrating sites)

My approval for a test and onversion server is now hanging on convincing our President we are not early adopters. Any numbers at all will be helpful. Perhaps your CAM or someone has mentioned some off-hand stats?

Thanks,

We are on 6.1 in about the same position as you. Are there any happy
Vantage 8.0 or 8.03 users out there who upgraded from 6.1? I'm still
hearing enough bad things about V8 that I'm not ready to tell
management to invest the $'s in a new server.

When we installed last year in July we were told that we were the 6th
client running 8.0.

We went live in November, I don't know how many there were then but I'm
pretty sure that there are well over 100 clients that are live right
now.

When we attended the Boston road show, Epicor indicated that
Vista\Vantage sales had topped 560 in the previous year.
