I ran the project here at Sellotape to convert our entire BPCS 303 system +
XM4 using MS4 supplied by Precision (Dublin, Eire). The conversion of the
entire system took place over the Easter holiday - 4 days in total. Support
is okay but could be better. We have been live since and have experienced
some minor problems but no downtime.
This product is worth a look for those who have not yet made up their mind.
