Support comments

If you continue to experience multiple issues with the Vantage
software, I'd recommend you request to be added to the STAR program.
This is where they assign a team of Vantage support personnel to
review and address your company's Vantage issues.

I believe the concept is to insure that all parties reviewing your
Vantage issues are aware of all issues so they can better
troubleshoot the problems.

Good luck & hope you get the answers you need.

I am currently a 8.03 vantage user and have been reading the threads
on complaints about support calls going no longer going to
Minneapolis. I have found over the last few weeks as support calls
are now routed to California and Mexico that My frustration level
with the lack of knowledge of the product modules is lacking on these
support sites along with poor communications. This problem has lead
to more of my time wasted on the phone with no resolution. I have
contacted epicor to express my frustration with this problem and have
been told you can log into the epicweb.epicor.com and there is a
quick ling called "Provide Feedback" to express your feeling and
experiences about support.

I think that there is a bottle neck support due to the current amount
of bugs in the code. I however do not think moving support calls from
Minneapolis is the solution to the problem. I am currently waiting on
patch release for over 45 active bugs in the current patch release of
8.03.

I would ask that every please join me and take a little time to go to
the web site and provide feedback on there support problem.

Thanks

Steve
Somewhere in the "contacts" section of the support site I remember
seeing 3 names and phone nbrs of top tech support management. I used
one several weeks ago and expressed this very sentiment and then some
(loss of American jobs). Feedback drives change (at least sets up the
groundwork for it). -Gary

Excellent suggstion. Every time I have had a support call closed I received an email survey link which I have always completed. Every year at Perspectives their excellent feedback results are proudly displayed. I do not believe I have ever seen the ratings go down. It will be interesting to see how they have been this year. I would not find any results other than a decrease to be credible. And if they do 'fess up to a decrease there ought to be some honest explanations and an action plan. We all (who are on it) pay a lot for maintenance and support.

If you don't get an emailed survery when a call is closed please go online and provide feedback....everytime....both bad and good.

I have found their tech support lacking at times. It's frustrating
when you contact them and then figure out the solution on your own
after a couple of days.

Hey Gang,



I have been give a very complex challenge and was wondering if anyone of
you dealt with this issue.

I have a customer base that will not pay miscellaneous charges on an
invoice such as freight charges.

I know a work around would be to include the freight charge in the unit
price however I don't want to inflate my unit price.

I want freight separate from the unit price because I don't want to pay
royalties on the freight either.



Any ideas how I can invoice a customer and (build my freight into the
unit price shown on the invoice) and Sales Order

And still break it out as freight in Vantage and have it all tie out.





Thank you



Don Kollmann

What industry is this that would have a customer base demanding no
freight charges?



One thought, can you charge them Engineering charges? Outside of
inflating your unit price, it would have to be masked as another type of
charge they would HAVE to pay.

I have done something like this but on a much larger scale. If you
send me your contact info by email, I can go over it with you. It
would take up too much space and be too confusing if I typed it out.
But It is working and seems to be working very well so far.

One simple option is to create a custom invoice form for this customer and
have Crystal sum the freight with the item price, or even easier, just lop off
the detail prices and print a total for them.

Another simple option, if the volume is low enough, is to just do it in Word.
But remember to add "Do not Mail" on the bill-to address so people don't mail
the real invoice!

What level of support did your company purchase for your 8.03
product? Our company found out after we purchased our support, that
there are different layers of support offered by Epicor.

We were not informed of this when we were sold the product.

Recently Epicor changed the support into three different support plans.
When the system changed it rolled us into the Premier Plus Plan.

We're Premier Plus (VNPSP+) and I spent much of the morning trying to
get technical support (option 3, selection 1) for an 8.03 question
800-426-8468 all calls were answered in Monterrey or wherever in Mexico
the rollover calls were landing. After twice being put on hold then
subsequently transferred to Vista voicemail I hung up the next 5 times
they answered. Logged a EpicWeb call... still waiting to hear back.

I'm NOT happy.

And you still get an outsourced helpdesk when you call? What Vantage
