Peachtree 2008 - Comments from a customer ...........

The following is a communication from one of my customers.
Comments, insights, from anyone?

I’m not sure if you’ve had a look at Peachtree 2008 but I just thought I’d let you know that I’m not pleased with it and wouldn’t recommend it at this time. The maintain job/vendor/employee functions are painfully slow. It takes 30 seconds to open a job in order to make a change then another 20 seconds to save it. I’ve called Peachtree support twice and used their chat support line once with no result. Apparently the maintenance functions use Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and our "tech guy" thinks that may be the root of the problem. I’ve asked their support people if they’ve had complaints from other users but they keep avoiding the question. I haven’t been able to find any comments in Google from other users but I’ll keep watching. Hopefully they’ll have a service release in the future. It’s going to take me 45 minutes just to change 90 jobs from active to inactive. Oh well, I should have taken your advice about updating every second release.

Hi Ted,
I haven't had problems with the delay time, but I've encountered lots of other issues - mostly on networks and due to the new Pervasive engine. Your client mentioned he needs to change a lot of jobs from active to inactive. I strongly suggest, rather than do them one at a time, that you show him how to export the jobs and change the inactve status to True for the jobs he wants to change. That would be a lot faster.

Hi Here in the UK Sage have released a new suggested hardware/software spec' for 2008 edition (sage 50 Accounts over here, I'm guessing they are the same thing) It could just be that he/she is running it on an under spec machine ?
