We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are monitoring, and the self-service that they have for a customized environment."
"Everything is fine as far as our implementation goes."
"The greatest aspect of the solution is its capability to be available from anywhere."
"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."
"The response time from technical support could be faster."
"In terms of what could be improved, pricing is always too high of course."
"Support could always be a bit better."
"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 price of this product could be better."
"It is very affordable."
