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."

More IFS Applications Cons »

"Lacking in some customizations.""It requires a lot of planning to implement the product correctly.""The common issues being raised right now by the end users are mostly related to the usability.""The cost of the solution is quite high. It needs to be adjusted.""The theory-side of the solution needs to be improved.""Every year, when a new version is released, it comes with a very thick booklet of 300 or 400 pages and it is a little difficult to comprehend.""The two things that need to be improved are price and customization."
