Cons: Being based on Access and with such extensive feature list a nagging concern always is about performance, particularly after a time when the data stored inside the application grows considerably.
If you are going to start using this package after the organization has grown and you have been using one or more applications to take care of these functions, then there is a conversion phase involved. That is not peculiar to this application but is characteristic of any database based application. One needs to be aware of this painstaking phase.
