Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The cataloging is a very valuable feature. For a lot of enterprises, they end up not knowing which applications do specific features. The cataloging helps with this. It's not that verbose, but it still gives you allowances to put in more detail.""It is relatively easy to use and user-friendly once the setup is complete.""It helped us contain critical things, like source code and several documents, which is very important to us.""At the same time, if you're working from the architect or the designing team you, it's quite easy to manage the resources online.""The most valuable feature is the reporting of the CPU usage on the dashboard.""You can customize the board according to your needs."

"The most valuable feature is the way the libraries are structured so that they were not folder driven."

More PractiTest Pros »

Cons
"The features should be more intuitive. If I'm looking for something, its location should be easy to locate.""There is not enough beginner support material in the form of FAQs or simple training to help you get started.""Of course it would be related to customer experience. The solution is not user friendly at all. It needs an expert to use it, although the reporting feature was okay.""The directory designer manager is uncivil. The design manager is clearly really unstable.""The stability of this solution can be improved.""The reporting functionality needs to be improved."
