Hi Tracy,

Did you get any response to this?  We are a 15 branch system and we
tried it when it first came out in 2008.  It was a mess, so we
stopped.  January of 2010 we tried again, it was much better, but
there were still a lot of problems with predictions.  I understand
they are doing some upgrading for 2011 so we will try it again in

Good Luck!
