The Designer IDE is the good part of the product. Is simple to understand, to configure and very intuitive.
More details on working processes and more controls on task outcome could help to have more control to the solution.

Made it easy to interface with the Xero API for our software.
It was easy to set up. The help documents are well written. I only used it to interface with Xero API but I was able to test other available functions that I will implement for other projects in the future.
I could only create an executable for running on a scheduled task. I also wanted one that could allow interfacing with the API on demand.

none yet. I had to reconfigure my OS and have not been able to reinstall the product.
Click, select and implement all in just a matter of minutes. There is very little coding that you need to become familiar with in order to get your app codded. All selections are field focused with a minimum of coding required.
It's database of allowable functions left me wanting more. To be fair, I think there are many possible applications for this product than I had time to explore. My attention was directed towards other projects fairly quickly, and I will revisit the software as soon as I am able.

Extremely functional piece of data connection puzzle
Very helpful in providing access to developer partners to implement a complete solution, and provide customer access after for easy maintenance.
There's nothing I don't like, but the only con is that it doesn't have the most user-friendly interface, relative to competitors, but since those competitors cost more than 50 times as much, there's no real competition when all is considered.

It appears to be well designed. The interface was fairly intuitive. I liked the fact that one could create workflows easily.
I didn't find any serious issue with the software. Overall, there is not much not to like the software.
Mike from Mike Allen Systems
I use this software to integrate my local systems and more importantly to load my expenses to Xero with minimal fuss.
The best thing about Linx is that it provides a quick,concise low-code environment to copy files and talk to APIs that is easy to deploy to the server. The Xero plug-in is fully functional and provides comprehensive access to the Xero API
Linx requires you to understand the APIs that you are talking to, there are limited pre-built solutions.
Vivek from PlatformPlus Ltd
Simplify workflows and repetitive tasks
Great features that can be used to automated routine tasks as well and run complex workflows. The support team are very quick to respond to queries and provide useful information. In my tests so far, I have been very happy with the product and support.
None so far. From my brief testing I have not come across anything major lacking in the product. Any queries I had were answered promptly and accurately by very knowledgeable staff.
Arland from Arland Head Consulting
LINX allows me to cut the time it takes to create a data integration solution. I can make many of the same system connections in less time than writing a custom code solution.
All of my customers are in the SMB market and LINX allows me to provide them the same powerful solutions that the more massive companies have access too and at a price point that fits nicely in the SMB budgets.
The thing that I like the least is I am not able to document my solution in LINX and then print out a copy or save to PDF. Although, I would not consider this a reason to not use this product it does make creating a solution for a client a little more cumbersome.

Automated systems integration
As a consulting firm helping our clients solve complex systems integration challenges we have found Linx to be an excellent toolkit that includes an environment that supports the development of the collecting of data from multiple source types, transforming that data as required using multiple techniques, then delivering the results to multiple target systems. It also thereafter supports the continuous automated processing of the results of the development work as an unattended server service. As a result we have solved many different systems integration challenges including as our clients needs have evolved.
The Help functionality in version 4 is limited, making the toolkit less of a self sufficient solution that it might otherwise be. However the level of support means this is not a practical problem, which in any case is due to be addressed in version 5.

quicky, easy to get concept into operation. No code, but comprehensive in ability to produce solutions
just a few UI glitches with traversing menus/lists. Web services manager seems sluggish when presenting a number of solutions ( 10+), could be browser related however
