Boris from CIEL Capital
Flexibility of the platform and customer support team on discussing new changes.
Time to completion for individual tasks depending on staffing availability. The help system is not well-developed and need to learn through webinars and sessions with FT staff or on your own.
The base product is versatile and customizable. We went into the project understanding that many customizations would be required based on the nature of the portfolio business where we planned on using FT. Realizing the degree of customizations required and scoping out the majority of the modifications ahead of time have been key to successfully moving the project forward.
We proactively engaged the FT team in brainstorming better solutions together with us to avoid cumbersome and costly modifications.
We found conversations with other FT users very useful and helpful in understanding how to best manage the project.

Quality product, easy to use, knowledgeable personnel that you feel they know you and your business
Have not always been successful using the support ticket system
Try hands-on prototype to be sure the "fit" and talk with others in similar businesses.

It provides us with a direct connect in conveying our programming needs to FLOW. It also enables the requestor to include others in communications regarding both issues, status, and follow-up.
not applicable....the product works well as a communication portal to our vendor.
I don't have any recommendations for others in terms of evaluating programmed software. Each company and individual has different evaluation methodologies. I am not an expert....
Brian from Autry Technology Center
FlowTrac customized their program to work for our organization. With their help, we have taken a very time consuming process and minimized the effort needed to account for our schools inventory. We have achieved accuracy and efficiency in a process that was the largest source of frustration and anxiety for our staff.
They use JIRA for communication. This is an effective tool for tracking projects, but it was a little more difficult to express what needed to be customized.
This software is simple and effective. Many inventory programs are canned and built for the most complex application. FlowTrac was able to pullout just the things we needed to provide a great easy to use product.
Mick from Texas Tool Traders
Flexibility and robustness. The product can easily be customized to fit your specific needs and give you all the inventory tracking information you need to manage movement and status.
Not to be too biased but there in nothing to dislike.
Have a good idea as to what you want and need, then document the process with the vendor creating a road map for all to follow.

Really like the flexibility and custom ability of the Flowtrac software.
I was putting in a lot of request for new work and it took a bit to get enough people on my project.
Really look at the technology that the software is built on. We found other stuff cheaper but the technology was old.
