Enables the seamless addition and changing of data and processes with no interruption to our business operations
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
This solution can be useful for tracking the different stages of projects and the people working on them.
Customize workflow processes visually and interactively.
The most valuable feature is that any non-technical personnel can easily work on the solution, redefining processes and creating drag and drop workflows according to the department or cross-department needs.
The feature I have found most valuable is the easy synchronization with other tools.
The configurable dashboard analytics and reporting capabilities ensure timely decision making.
The clean interface, prioritization, and private task lists aren't present in other solutions.
This software added transparency to our workflows. It helped with increasing throughput of clients and their satisfaction.
It successfully routes hand-offs between different teams, adds transparency to workflows, and has a set of social collaboration tools.
It's made things seamless and it's more efficient, and there's an audit trail where it wasn't there before.
One of the most valuable features of the solution is how rapid we can implement it, going from a design to an operational concept in a very short period of time.
VINYL has given us the ability to really improve the speed with which we deploy releases and respond to the good ideas that our people have.
There are two most valuable features: one is the ability to pull data from a bunch of different places and put them together. And the second is the speed at which you can get a new app developed. So instead of waiting months for this new app to come out, if you have an internal team putting it together, you can roll it out in weeks. I've even seen days. It's incredible how fast you can make changes.
VINYL has really helped us speed up application development at a reasonable cost.
We have been able to leverage the platform to rapidly build custom solutions, and tailor-make them to our needs.
It's extremely easy to use in getting into the IDE and then back down to your applications, and getting from your applications to your pages, and navigating through all your tables. That's very simple and pretty intuitive.
It allows us higher visibility into our data, which allows us to data-check faster, and validate data that we had not been able to validate, prior.
There are not very many report templates, and if there were more, it would really help.
This solution lacks API integration with some popular websites.
The UX/UI could be reviewed and revamped to meet new the criteria of Digitalization and Innovation.
If your organization has only a few team members then this tool is not suitable.
The initial setup seemed a bit complex, and there is no great documentation.
Figuring out how to integrate defined teams or groups into this system is difficult, and there are no contextual menus.
The OpenAPI is good, but it is not enough. It lacks out-of-box integrations with popular web services.
I am expecting new updates to improve the software.
Right now it's very dependent on having an imagination to understand.
I'd like to see the next release of VINYL have more user interface solutions to it, so that it could be a more user-friendly product on the front end for the customers that are utilizing the tool. We didn't have a solution to help automate all of our reporting in the past which identified the need to make sure that we could tap into our data sources and automate all of our reporting, which is exactly why we needed the tool.
The features that I'd like to see in VINYL next would be the ability to have more control over, or have a rule-based control over column headings and column labels.
Some new features I think I'd like to see is visibility into running jobs so that we can see what the status is, or it's not stuck in its process and doing its thing, or how much longer it's going to take. I'd also like to see a native calendaring function so we can put calendars into our apps with maybe even recurring tasks or appointments and that sort of thing. We'd also like to see multi-select lists. The users being able to pick multiple things to filter on and get a list and be able to export that list.
The ease of use for individuals to self-serve could be improved. The solution is no-code, but there is still a decent learning curve associated with the product and some app design principles necessary before people can self-serve.
When you are trying to delete certain columns or delete or drop tables, it will throw an error and it will force you to hunt down every location where those things are being referenced. You have to delete them from the very end and work your way backward... It would be easier, when you're deleting that table, if it would concatenate all the way down.
There are a lot of almost "hidden" features captured in these Edge Case settings... If you want a scroll bar at the bottom, instead of having it select rows to show, you have to select Disable Panel Location Service, which doesn't sound at all like what it's supposed to do. Naming conventions could be changed a little bit.
One of the troubles we have sometimes is the amount of data we're processing within the applications. That can really add a lot of "laggy-ness." That's an ongoing struggle we're going to have while we use it. It doesn't happen for all our applications, only some of them that are heavy on the reporting.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Great value for the money.
This solution has a very lost cost.
The pricing and licensing is as per market standards, except that the process of extending licenses is also easy.
The price is so reasonable.
I benefit from this software by getting a variety of reporting options and features for a relatively low cost
Setup cost is reasonable and average on the market. They offer simple licensing and price per user.
Price per user works for me when they do not count my clients, which fill forms.
The value for us for VINYL is that we've got one fee that we're paying per year and we can deploy and build as many apps and bring in as many users as we need.
The licensing costs we pay are, I believe about 5,000 a month. That's every quarter. We've been doing it for about a year now, and the prices have remained steady. We feel it's a reasonable cost for what we're getting because it's unlimited users. So as big as you want to make it, you're not constrained by a per-user licensing cost or any of those other restrictions, so that's going to stifle your development.
Our licensing costs are approximately 100K annually, and from my perspective, that really is quite the value with the flexibility and what we're getting from the product.
The pricing is moderate. It's okay.
Pricing and licensing are expensive.
We have seen a 30 percent decrease in time for some of our workflows.
I feel the product’s pricing is a good value. The licensing model is very straightforward. You license the platform and you can build however many solutions you want with it.
Pricing was actually one of the things that drew us to the product initially... the way it was licensed at the time, I got a flat monthly fee from Zudy for the Vinyl product, which allowed me to basically have unlimited use of it... We have an annual license, we pay monthly. It's very competitive and very worthwhile given the return we get out of it.
