Cons
"The workflow should be made to be more user-friendly. It should also have more granular scalability.""The mobile version of this product does not support asset management.""The pricing could be a little lower and the product should cover more iTel versions.""It is pretty clunky and not very intuitive. Even though I have used it for many years, I don't think it is a very good ITSM platform in general. In the telecom space, a lot of telco providers use this solution, but from my perspective, it is not very user friendly. It is a bit more laborious. There are still too many human touchpoints. There can be a little bit more automation. It would also be good to integrate it with other tools. Integration is quite difficult, especially in the telco space."
