"The product is pretty responsive."
"The queue management of the solution is its most valuable aspect."

"The initial setup is rather complex."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing is on a monthly basis and right now we pay $24/month. There are no other costs over and above that."
"It is an expensive program."
"The licensing is per user per month, which we took out a contract on a long time back. It's really an okay price for what solutions are available and for how many features and what kind of functionality you get."
