We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The cost of implementation is cheap compared to other solutions."
"Many implementations were open-source. We also had a couple of enterprise-level implementations, but I didn't have visibility on the licensing cost."
"This solution is cheaper than some of its competitors. However, the price depends on which country you are in. In some countries, such as Greece or some Southeastern European countries, the price for the client can be expensive."
