What we like most is the company and the people who work there. They have a first rate product in Mi-Forms and an excellent sales and technical support staff. Their reseller program is among the best in our business.
Pricing may be too high for many smaller organizations with limited budgets.
Look for ease of learning, the ability to build applications, interfaces with third party back end systems, and the ability to run on various products and operating environments.

I like the adaptability to our unique needs and the reliability in responsiveness to questions. They are always willing to provide suggestions and to think about how we will use it in the field. They are very timely in completing updates.
The program may crash here and there. Unless a user is well versed in its ins and outs, they will struggle to recover information. Otherwise, the program works seamlessly between each of the devices.
Figure out what your needs are, obviously. There will be constant changes and updates as you learn how to utilize software such as this in any environment to best suit your needs. Information that is collected by the system will help inform you of best practices.
