We are preparing to convert from PrintSmith Classic to Vision. The documentation is awful, the prerequisites are burdensome and the word on the street is that Vision and HTML are not ready for prime time - and may never be. Does anyone have a success story that counters this? Is there a competitive product that you have converted to from Classic?
We updated from Classic to vision about 2 years ago. It was a pretty clean upgrade and installation. As far as Vision flash goes it works pretty much like classic, so your users will be familiar with it. Invoices, Estimates, and Pending Documents are the only parts that use the new HTML5 platform. The HTML5 platform user interface is completely different from how you are working today, but a big step in the right direction. We upgraded to the HTML5 version a couple of months ago when it came out. The nice part is that the HTML5 Invoices, Estimates and Pending Documents all are run together with the current flash version, so you can work in both all day long and shorten the learning curve of HTML5. I am currently creating about 75% of invoices and estimates in HTML5.
Make sure you are running PSV on a computer that meets or exceeds the recommend system requirements. Load up on RAM and the Processor. We are running on a Windows 10 machine with a top of the line i7 with 16GB RAM (upgradable to 64 GB just in case) and it runs really smooth.
I hope this helped, and good luck.
