Curiosity question: If Retalix is no longer developing for the IBM i, what
platform are they developing software for?

Unfortunately Retalix has abandoned IBM i. They still have a product they
will sell, however they are putting no development or effort into it. I
have two customers leaving POWER because of it.

I know Retalix was used successfully by European Imports in Chicago before
they got swallowed up by Sysco Foods.

These are the ones I've found so far:

Business Applications, Inc (will work for food distribution with help from
another vendor) Harris Data I/O DMAS Plus Infor Retalix Software Concept
Target Turning Point Systems Vormittag Associates, Inc

Any others?

IBM i Foodservice Distribution Softyware

The 3 of us in senior management positions here at Dilgard are all
about the same age and will all be retiring in 8-10 years at about
the same time. The Board of Directors has 'suggested' that we
replace the custom
in
house software I have developed over the past 40 years with
something
off
the shelf. The idea being it will be easier to find support as well
as making the company more valuable.

What IBM i (AS/400) ERP software packages are out there? Looking
for
the
usual gamut of apps. A/R, A/P, Ordering, Billing, Inventory Control
and Management, GL, Warehouse, etc.

Thanks.

The opinions expressed are my own and not necessarily the opinion of
my company. Unless I say so.

We run several modules from Infor/Infinium. Their support is good,
although the price keeps going up. (It's coming to the point where
we'll soon be spending as much on the annual support as we did on the
initial licensing. We may have to re-evaluate our options in the
future.) I don't always like the results of support, but I understand
where Infor is coming from. The support people are always willing to
work with us and try to get a workable solution.

Infor has grown into one of the largest software vendors out there.
They have very good IBM i (a.k.a., AS/400) support. They've grown by
snatching up other vendors. Unlike other organizations which have
snatched up a group of vendors, they continue to support and enhance
the products they acquire. They've also had a program to allow full
credit of licensing costs when switching between their various software
lines.

From the limited exposure I've had, I would take a serious look at
their Lawson product line. I don't know if VAI has anything in the
Food Services Distribution area, but what I've seen from them also
looks well-done. I've also heard good things about Harris Data Systems.

I know years ago a large food services distributor in Great Falls,
Montana was reworking all their mainframe stuff to run on the AS/400.
They felt the competitive advantage of their custom written software
was worth far more than the cost of maintaining it. Your BOD may find
that something to think about before moving to something off the shelf.
