We've been looking at Webcheckout here at UCLA as a possible replacement
for Media Net at some point in the future. There's a lot to like about
Webcheckout but there's also lots missing---like a cataloging module. We
had a phone conference with OnShore last week to discuss features
absolutely essential to us and the catalog module is at the top of that
list. Of course being software developers, they're certain that they can
"easily" incorporate a catalog with full title, subject & keyword search
capability into their existing structure. (I'm equally certain that
they're down-playing the complexity of these features so our next
conversation ought to be interesting. )

They have one installation to date at the Chicago Art Institute, and the
software was developed specifically for them. OnShore is now beginning to
market the product more broadly. I'd be interested in knowing what you
think of it.
