We are looking at doing Adept PDM, we are pretty close to pulling the trigger. I thought that I had a pretty good handle on the costs from talking to the sales rep. The originally given costs had the upper limit of the one time set up costs at ~2/3 the costof buying the licenses and first year maintenance. Now that we have an actual quote a number of futher undisclosed one time set up costs have emerged so that the set up costs are more than the licenses and maintenance. I am starting to wonder if this is the right choice. I wonder how well we are going to be able to maintain a system that requires two weeks of implementation planning and on site set up (from Adept employees) for a small company with less than 10 users and a simple work flow. We don't have an IT person to deal with this.
Does anyone with Adept implementation/maintenence experience have any comments?
What happens in an Enterprise PDM inplementation for comparison? (We don't like Enterprise PDM and won't be going with it instead)
