"The most valuable features are quick customization, solid deployment processes, and excellent reliability.""We haven't had any issues with stability so far.""I'm not sure what the most valuable aspect of the solution is, but I can say that their finance and auditing systems are quite impressive.

"Overall, integration with the enterprise ecosystem needs improvement.""You need experienced programmers and developers to understand this solution."

More Mendix Cons »

"The cost of data storage is an issue once the company grows.""I would like to have integration with Google.""The solution offers upgrades at a slower pace. The solution needs to keep up with competitors.""They need an easy way of getting details and then adding to it and then being able to do it in a more simplified way""The marketing automation needs improvement.""Better flexibility in editing emails created from templates would be great, and being able to add hyperlinks in emails for scheduling meetings would allow us to automate more.""If you have resellers or distributors, you just need to figure out a way to set up the system in the backend. Since every company is different, it takes a little bit of time to figure that out.""The initial setup is rather complex."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Initially, we started with a year for approximately $25,000, and if we need to expand the number of seats then we will increase it."

More Mendix Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is an expensive program.""The licensing is per user per month, which we took out a contract on a long time back. It's really an okay price for what solutions are available and for how many features and what kind of functionality you get.""The solution is a bit expensive.""It is expensive. Licensing is on an annual basis.""It is quite expensive. Its developers come at a premium cost, which makes it expensive."
