RE: PR Solutions



fixed

We too had some trouble with Millennium, but the guys from Midrange came 
over and fixed it.

Turned out some Mapics objects had improper authority & ownership (go 
figure).
And Empmas had an orphaned trigger that was causing problems with ASNA. 
/my bad

Admittedly we've had issues with installs/updates and archiving.

No performance problems.
Performance can be a challenge, since it is 3-tier, it can be desktop, 
transaction server (datagate)
or the AS/400.  Network issues are a possibility, topology, switch depth, 
etc.

Overall I'd say their support has improved a lot in the last 12 months.

We switched to Perms Millennium about 1 year ago. (had used Perms green
screen for a number of years)
Performance with Millennium is not very good !
Working with Midrange and ASNA to try and understand what's causing the
problem.
I would be very cautious before committing to Perms Millennium.

Keith - Are you considering a solution from Midrange? 

We have a fairly long relationship with Midrange although we don't rely on
them for much support any longer because we are on an old-stable version 
of
green screen PERMS. I can't remember the last time we actually needed tech
support on PERMS. Perhaps when we put up MAPICS R6???

When we were actively implementing their HR solution a number of years 
back
and used their tech support more frequently we would probably rank them
about a 6 on a scale from 1-10. This is based on a relative ranking of
support services that we receive from a number of other solution 
providers.
It isn't that they offer consistently poor support; their support clearly
just wasn't par with other providers that we did business with. This may 
not
be true today. 

I have been told by several people that they feel that after Dave McIntyre
left the business a few years back the company isn't as customer 
responsive
as they once were. I can't personally confirm or deny that since we have
such a limited need for support today (basically
none) so you will need to develop your own opinion on that. There was some
past "chat" on the midrange list regarding Midrange Software; some of it
positive, and some not so positive.

Do any other members of this list have experiences similar or different 
than
mine that they can share with Keith?

Dale.

Dale,

 

Is your experience with Midrange Software personal or from a reliable
source?  What are the details?
