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."
"Employee onboarding, de-boarding, and other service-provision features make the process easier and it saves us a lot of time."
"There are a lot of ready to use orchestration custom packs."
"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."
"There should be connectors to cover at least the top industry applications, and they should be easier to configure in a plug-and-play fashion."
"Efficiency of some features could be improved."
"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."
"In terms of price, this solution is at the higher end of what you'll find."
