How has it helped my organization?

It helps us to manage and track requirements for complex products. This allows for quick and easy safety certification.

It needs word processing captioning as well as references within a module.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for 12 years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We had no issues with deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There have been no issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It has scaled for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer services is great.

Technical Support:

Technical support is also great.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used Interleaf and other tools, but they don't allow for easily readable trace and control.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was easy. It's easy to provide access to users.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it in-house, though it does require basic knowledge of the tool.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We've found that floating licenses work best.

What other advice do I have?

Don't use Citrix or a virtual environment to implement a global solutions. It causes problems when linking between tools.
