Contrary to previous review, I found registration to be straight-forward and the software jam packed with functionality
There are many features / setup options so you need to invest some time reviewing on-line tutorials and documentation.
I like it because it allows me to start small and at same time I know as my company grows, this software will easily handle my expanding requirements and data volumes. Two of my favourite features are the user-defined flex-fields and the terminology translation glossary.
Amazing features and functionality, including strong manufacturing. Solid DB. The D/L is big for a reason, this is NOT a beginner-level system, it's PRO. Occasional glitches (to be expected), but so far very good support.
Oracle (XE) installs, and works like, a heavy-weight DBMS. UI needs to be easier to work with for users (being done, from what I'm told).
