Care needs to be taken when applying firmware upgrades, as they often fail. Also, the components that they include in the product that are, in fact, a WTX, really need to be removed from the product because they tend to fail. It's got some native capabilities and it's gotten some imported capabilities and you need to know the history of the product to understand the difference between the two. Most notable is the COBOL copybook handling, which is really straight out of WTX. It's poorly supported and often leads to failures. View full review »

The solution requires a lot of training manuals in order to get to know it better and to be able to use it effectively. View full review »
