We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"A reliable, time-saving tool for providing accurate layer 2 and layer 3 network mappings."
"Chain management is a good feature. I don't get it on other solutions."
"Enables maps to be drawn out."
"The solution offers so many great resources, it makes them a powerhouse in the market."
"Support needs to improve for the installed product and some of the reporting could be more flexible to provide more complete cataloging."
"It would be nice if the setup was a little simpler. Also, if the solution could provide more training materials for new people coming into our company so they can quickly learn how to use the functionalities."
"The IP interface brief isn't consistent."
"The price could be a bit lower."
"The product is expensive, but less expensive than some of the competition and worth the price."
