We didn't like how it was laid out; it was complicated.
This product was nowhere near adequate for our application without large amounts of costly custom programming.
Very poor. It is very inefficient, and it fell far short of our expectations.
Exceptionally poor. They were slow to respond, and at one point we overheard one of their employees insulting us when they thought we were not listening.
There is not much to like about this software.
Their support is slow to respond. They told us their product could meet our requirements but failed to mention that many of those things would require costly customization until after we signed up. It was so bad that we ended up abandoning the software after spending a pile of money.
Use something else. We ended up abandoning the software after purchasing it and attempting to implement it.
