Cons
There's room for improvement in the visibility, and in the ability to extract information. Stuff like this should be more simple.They need more documentation for the plugins.I would like to see more customization in the network map because it is a bit tricky to use it.I would like a much easier GUI so that I can delete events and logs, which will free up a lot of space.I would like to see support for notification via SMS.The interface could be more user-friendly.

It would be nice to have remote access to the solution via a tablet. They also need remote control from a PC. Right now, to complete the technical support process, you have to have a tool to access the PC, and check the problems.I would like the solution to allow for more direct interaction with computers. I can open tickets and I can see their status, but I can't interact directly with the computers themselves.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The pricing is high with separate licensing for the product and support.The licensing fees for this solution are approximately $3,000 USD per year.This solution is very expensive, at approximately $5,000 USD when I purchased it, which is why I haven't upgraded my version in several years.We are using the free version of this solution.It is good to contact experts for advice about what is the best solution for your specific infrastructure and enterprise.
