Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The use of this product has helped improve our organization and its ability to send or receive. It has done this by allowing us to remove any homegrown process and centralize needed actions.""The most valuable feature is the Advanced Workflows.""This is a very good product for managing file transfers.""Its speed is the most valuable because every integration used to take months with old SOA tools, integration buses, and that type of stuff. Now, we do integrations in a matter of days. Security is another valuable thing because every step in the workflow has an audit trace, which is great. This also brings a lot of confidence in automating business process workflows through this type of solution."

Cons
"Improvement in support or product relies on being ingenious, supportive, and listening to its customer base.""If the hostname has a dash in it then it does not work.""The product could be improved by being modular. There are more features in the core product than any client needs.""Its user interface can be improved. The current user interface is a little basic for some of the use cases. We have to use an external component to enhance it. When we need a more appealing user interface, we use an additional component, and that works okay."

More HelpSystems GoAnywhere MFT Cons »

"Not a ten because it's a bit complex, not so simple. It's one product but there are many screens.""I would like to see auto-deployment without service disruptions.""The API capabilities could be expanded to make integration more versatile.""Too many features; UI is not good.""IBM is advising not to use the IT translate anymore but this is going to be an extra cost to the customer to use the alternative."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing can be expensive and it depends upon which features you want to buy.""Pricing is based on a one-time license.""It would be good for the company to explore a modular approach to selling the product so it could be cheaper and more attractive to users."

More HelpSystems GoAnywhere MFT Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It's reasonably priced at $800,000.""There are two types of customer licenses, an annual preview license, and an ELA-based license. I have found the solution is priced well. However, they need to review the pricing model because if you look at any other competitors, such as GlobalSCAPE, they do pricing based on the components and what you select. With this solution you have a monolithic application which you need to buy, there is no component level price discount."
