Large number of parses can be caused by executing dynamic SQL, or not using bind variables. One way to try amending this would setting CURSOR_SHARE to "FORCE", but in 8i it's a dangerous thing to do and can break many other things. Another way would be to negotiate with the vendor and ask him to reduce number of parses and use bind variables. I'm sure that the three of you can successfully negotiate with any vendor.
