"The advanced structuring can be complicated and the interface is not very intuitive.""The solution could offer better connectivity with other databases.""More integration with Microsoft Office products (not just Excel) would be helpful.""I would like to see a different end solution in order to read the data and attract internal users.""A few things which are missing include the visualization of reports. That's where your costs and licensing become heavy. When it comes to this database compared Microsoft Warehouse, it's an expensive solution.""We are very unhappy with technical support. First of all, they send their sales agents or pre-sales agents and most of them who don't know the solution as a properly trained tech would.
