It was an issue, but when you compare it to the number of people who were administrative assistants before, it's on the positive ROI side. It's much cheaper.Here in Brazil... it is very expensive. It's very hard for almost all companies to buy even the small version of this solution.We negotiated with Cisco and we got some price benefit from that.The price is a bit too high.The product is expensive.
