We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is very easy to use from an administration point of view."
"The most interesting and powerful feature for us is the fact that we can upgrade any kind of app instantly."
"Simplicity of the interface is a valuable feature."
"Its price and ease of use are the most valuable. It is simple and has good performance."
"If it were possible to integrate App-V with a cybersecurity solution then we could implement a documentation registry, which would be useful."
"The downside is that Microsoft bought this product and they are going to discontinue it in 2026. This is worrisome for us."
"If the solution crashes, then all the customers connected through that agent, lose their session."
"Generally, it is a very good solution. The main thing that I would improve is their presence here in Mexico. They don't have strong local support here in Mexico. They should have a worldwide presence so that we don't have to do everything through the people in the US. The initial setup was a little bit complex because we were migrating from Citrix. For customers who are migrating from another platform like VMware or Citrix, it would be great if they can provide an automated migration solution."
"The pricing of this product is competitive."
"Clients do not pay licensing fees."
"It is very affordable."
