How has it helped my organization?

It definitely helps us with the remediation process as we can create different reports, whatever is required at the time.

What needs improvement?

The GUI could be a little less complicated as it opens a lot of new windows for creating search lists, templates, reports, or for scanning purposes. Also, occasionally it can't even authenticate to basic web forms.
