I am new to this Peachtree users group and have a question regarding
others' experiences with product capabilities (and limitations).
I am also the developer of an add-on product for process
manufacturers. I have a chemicals customer that uses my product in a
stand-alone fashion to formulate and blend products. They currently
use DOS-based DacEasy as their business system. As my product
currently integrates with Peachtree to manage raw and finished goods
material definitions, I would like to see them move to the latest
version of Peachtree if it is a viable option.
'Viable' is the operant word here. This company can be considered on
the lower-end of the mid-market with respect to sales and
operations. They have approximately 1300 raw materials, 2000
intermediate formulated assemblies, and 2200 end-item
configurations. This translates to approximately 5700 items in the
materials table in Peachtree. They also process 900-1000 sales orders
month with the average order containing 1.5 items.
My question is, "Can anyone on this group give testimony to a
manufacturing company using Peachtree (any ver) to effectively
handle this volume of business?"
With the migration to the Pervasive database, my instincts tell me
that Peachtree should comfortably handle these volumes of data.
While Pervasive is capable of handling such transaction volume, many
of us know that poorly defined schemas can cripple the best RDBMS
