What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
It is a good tool and we can do customization with it. Most areas are quite customized. The cost has room for improvement. It is currently expensive. Some of the features are very particular to the core. The workforce management is another area that can be improved. Our customer portal is there but when a ticket comes it requires an additional tool. It would be helpful if they could have better integration with those tools. More standardization can be brought in.
This platform is used more by large companies because it is a little bit expensive.
The solution could use a more flexible license model for the product and the integration towards other ERP systems could be improved.
The platform is quite complicated, because of the basics of the software. The basic reporting system is rather static. The pricing of this solution could be reduced, as it's expensive. The technical support could offer more in terms of basic inquiries. They thrive with more complicated issues.
There are several areas of the product that could use improvement. From a vendor point of view, I had an opportunity to work with them on their licensing model. It still needs some improvement in the way the licensing model works because it is a little bit complex and difficult to understand. They change it from time-to-time and sometimes they do not communicate those changes effectively to their partners. Put simply, the licensing model is something that can be simplified and made more visible to both the partners and the customers or end-users. Currently, the product is comparatively quite expensive and lowering the cost would likely produce a better response from customers. I know that the company is at work on many new things right now. But one thing I would expect to see in the next few releases is vertical-specific solutions. For example, say solutions for banking or healthcare-specific solutions. I believe they are going to come up with at least a draft version of this type of solution for some industries over the next few releases.
The licensing for this solution, with respect to the user, needs to be improved.
In the next release of this solution, we would like to see mobile capability. We would like to see AI used to automate some of the functionality in this solution.
