I've used three.  Unfortunately, they are long gone with my former life as a
new AS/400 installer so I don't have the contacts (other than IBM).  Perhaps
if I post them, others still have the contact info:

1)  IBM Migration Assistant.
2)  Essex ProStart.
3)  Quantum (out of Canada, and my favorite if I remember correctly).

Don't have a whole lot of experience here, but Nexgen (www.nexgeninfo.com)
has a good solution for BPCS users...
