    Hello. I'm using Consignment Success for 4 years and I'm very happy with the program, but now i'm expanding my business and i need to work with 3 or more computers accessing at the same time. With Consignment Success i have 2 licenses, and when i used the computer that access the main computer it's very slow to add inventory or edit something. I'm considering to change to Liberty 4, like i said, i'm really comfortable with Consignment Success but i think Liberty 4 can support many computers at a time without a problem because is made it with SQL. What do you think? Thanks for your comments.

      Hi Tomas,

      Thanks for posting on our blog! Consignment Ease and Consignment Success suffer from the same issues that all non-server/client RDBMSes suffer from - performance and stability issues. Success uses dBase/FoxPro (.dbf) files. On day 1, the program will perform quite well. As more data is added on or if you add additional workstations to connected to the shared folder on the server where the data files reside, you will begin to see LONG delays when loading the program, or navigating from screen to screen.

      Moving to Gigabit Ethernet can help, if you're on a 10 or 100 Mbps network, but the application doesn't actually send that much data across the network. The issue is many-fold and it all boils down to the type of database management system, or lack thereof, that is used for applications that utilize dBase or FoxPro.

      You will never see a company say, "We need a database management system that scales up from 10-100 users - let's use dBase!"

      So if you're at the point where you have 3+ systems and potentially will have more in the future (along with more inventory, more sales, more consignors, etc.) then you need a database management system that can actually handle that volume.

      We're open Monday-Friday from 10AM-5PM and on Saturdays from 12PM-4PM. We offer a free 30-consultation and we can discuss all of your options. Let me know if you have any additional questions!
