HCL Notes Valuable Features

Sr. Analyst at a consultancy with 1,001-5,000 employees
We are actually in process of shifting away from this software. I can not really think of any pros to talk about when it comes to this solution that make it better than something else. All I have to mention are cons because this is pretty outdated software. As proof of how outdated it is, even IBM — the creator of this email client — sold it to HCL to get rid of it. It is pretty much outdated and there are no not many pros of using it. Although, if you have to count, integrations are easy. My company has integrated a lot of different systems into HCL Notes. We have systems like leave (vacation) management, we have systems like resource management, and internal files and documents. All of these have been integrated with Notes. So it is a tightly knit tool. Really there are so many integrations that there are far too many. We have not done any comprehensive search to see if there are other email clients that allow this type of integration. For example, I would not know if even something like Microsoft Office allows users to build integrations or your own features into their email client. HCL Notes sure does allow integrations of many kinds and that is maybe the only pro that I currently find in this solution. View full review »
