We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This solution is fast and very easy to understand, even if you are not a technician.""We are able to create an internal price of the product that we can then sell to clients. We get the cost plan at a good discount and then resell it with a mark up to our enterprise-level clients. This flexibility in pricing is one of the solution's best features."
