We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution's most valuable feature is its quick setup. Nowhere else you can create a good-looking application this quick. It's a fairly robust system."
"The interface is quite simple and easy to use, even for beginners."
"The stability has been good. We haven't had any issues."
"It is easy to use, easy to understand, easy to implement and easy to enhance and we can do it as a Cloud. Also it is very user friendly."
"The most valuable feature is the situational layer cake."
"The most valuable aspect of the solution is the various workflows."
"The solution provides us with a very good dashboard."
"The solution offers excellent workflows."
"We have seen a big improvement in the experience that we want to create for our end users."
"Learning materials, such as online courses, are readily available."
"The workflow feature really has a lot of value because you can create complex workflows in a simple, intuitive way with only a few clicks."
"This is a development platform that provides us with a strong database and a low code environment."
"The level of automation within the platform is great."
"The main reason that people use ServiceNow is that performance is very good."
"We work on it directly to send out tickets. It enables us to work seamlessly, we don't need to send them out manually. We can create a ticket and assign it in the system."
"ServiceNow offers a lot of features when it comes to IT service management and IT operations management. What interested me in ServiceNow was that a lot of service management."
"The pricing model needs to be improved. Right now, it's too expensive."
"Pega currently is trying to add chatbots to their systems, and it's still quite immature. This part definitely needs to be improved."
"The solution would benefit from more integration capabilities."
"Sometimes when we are patching some data from the database, we are getting added as a timeout."
"Compared to other BPM products, the interface is somewhat complex, so the usability could be improved."
"We need more light retail BPM tools within the Pega system. However, Pega is mostly for big companies."
"From a technical point of view, it would be helpful to have some advanced analytics to help with configuration. We have a lot of unwanted features and it would be good to configure it more appropriately so that we are using just exactly what we need."
"There are some UX shortcomings within the solution. However, it's my understanding that they have addressed them and in the next three months they will come out with a new updated version. They will be moving away from HTML5."
"We would like to see AI used to automate some of the functionality in this solution."
"The licensing for this solution, with respect to the user, needs to be improved."
"The pricing model is complex and needs to be both lowered and simplified."
"The basic reporting system is rather static."
"The integration towards other ERP systems could be improved."
"This platform is used more by large companies because it is a little bit expensive."
"The cost has room for improvement. It is currently expensive."
"The price of this solution, including installation and configuration, is comparable to competing vendors."
"The pricing is pretty good, compared to other similar products."
"It's a user-based license where, as you scale the numbers of users, the price increases."
"It is cost-effective for medium enterprises. It is cheaper than ServiceNow."
"The solution could be less expensive according to my customers. However, I think the price of the solution is fair."
"We mostly have a yearly license."
"Pricing is based on the number of users and user licenses, but the product is 20% to 30% more than the competition."
"It's expensive and if you need some analytical views of your activity, there is an additional cost."
