Does anyone have experience with Arena and Enterprise PDM?

We are considering using Arena software with Enterprise PDM.  We want a system that will integrate with our Enterprise PDM BOM as well as store supplier information to help with purchasing/supply chain mgmt.  We would also like an easy to use interface which it seems like it has.


I have some concerns though.  When reading through the data sheet on the arena website, it seems dated (i.e. mentions SW2008 and Windows XP for example and doesn't mention Windows 7).  If they don't keep their documents current, this seems like a flag to me.  I am wondering if this is something worth pursuing or are there any other reasons not to pursue this software?


I have been unable to find someone who has experience with this software which is why i'm asking on the forum.


Also if anyone has experience with other ERP systems that integrate with SolidWorks EPDM, i am interested in your feedback.


Thanks for your time,
