How are customer service and technical support?

We have not contacted technical support as of yet.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was a bit difficult. Every product has its own difficulties and many products are not equal to each other, which is the reason why it was a bit difficult. 

You have to know the features and where they are located and how they work, the logic and even with the logic you have, you don't know the configuration.

The deployment took one week.

We have our team. We implemented this solution ourselves.

It's a bit expensive and it could be cheaper, but it's part of business politics.

It's a good solution and I suggest it. In general, it can be improved but it's good enough.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
