Quotes From Members

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

"The incident management feature is good because it allows you to keep track of and classify issues.""The most powerful features are the database and integration with CMDB.""We are very thankful to have IBM integrated with our own Legacy cloud-based system"

More IBM Maximo Pros »

"The main reason for the ERP project was to bring together our fourteen sites, which had until then worked in separate silos.""The product is quite flexible.""The solution overall is very versatile and flexible, especially compared to other products.""Some of the strengths are Enterprise Management Solutions and the series of Management solutions which is number one in Gartner's report and has been for the last five years."

More IFS Applications Pros »

"I feel that the interface is a little too complicated with a large number of fields to enter.""The interface is not very easy or user-friendly and is in need of improvement.""You can get lost using the application"

More IBM Maximo Cons »

"The CRM was shaky and although this improves in Apps 10, there is room for improvement.""The user interface can be improved. When you're clicking through the screens, there are some icons or symbols that really need updating and would be more useful and noticeable if they are aesthetically pleasing.""It would be ideal if, in the future, the product could incorporate IoT and blockchain elements. We'd like to explore more of these types of features going forward.""There are certain digital features that need to be incorporated, such as IOP."
