We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"Zoho Creator can be integrated with other platforms easily."
"I just like the simplicity of it."
"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."
"They should allow for more UI customization."
"When you're developing database-type applications, there is no way to see the actual database tables. They call them forms, and I don't like that. Zoho should also provide better user guides."
"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."
"We would prefer it if the price went down drastically."
"It is at the bottom end of the price range."
