We used Parts and Vendors for 3-4 years and the engineering staff loved it.
The problem was with accounting. When we tried to use this tool to
accurately track inventory costs we discovered it was not intended for this
and we had to change. For organizing engineering parts and all of the
linking features it was great. As long as costing is not a serious part of
the equation this is a great tool. By the way, we changed to Misys/Accpac
and I would never recommend this to anyone.
