That's one person's opinion.. and he is entitled to it, too bad he did not
provide you any info to help you make a decision!!
I have been using since around the 1st of January.. and while it
does still have some problems, they are livably... at least with my company.

The problems that I am having problems with:

1. Email invoices will only invoice 33 invoices and then gets an error.. you
have to abort Emerald, restart, and then invoice 33.. this is a real pain
when you have hundreds of invoices to email!!

2. The problem that I consider Major is that I have been unable to do a
consolidation.. I have reported various errors and have been provided
various things to try, but as of yet, I am still unable to consolidate...

3. The "autobill credit card" function in the MBR has changed... if you have
a 0 for Autobill.. that should mean not to autobill except the 1st invoice..
at least 2.2.xx did that when you said "NO" and I equate "0" to "NO"...
however, Dale has provided a script to help it work similar to the old way..
See the archives for a complete run down...

4. A few selections have been moved from Emerald to Emerald Admin.. make
sure you look everything over and understand BEFORE you put it in

All in all.. If I had it to do over again.. I would still convert to 2.5...
it offers too many new features to be ignored... and lets face it.. 2.2 had
problems also.. the minor problems I have with 2.5 are just that minor..
except Consoladation... and that is starting to be a major problem.. at
least with my setup... I have had to increase my database size in order to
accomidate the increased calls table..

Hope this helps!!
