– Relatively low cost licensing
– Works well if you are able to install it
– Low Hardware Requirements
– Terrible Support: wont answer your emails and no phone where to call.
– I paid 5 licences and never was able to install it correctly. Eventually Support stopped answering me and after more than 5 emails to support, sales or anyone in the company. No Answer.
FOR A COMPANY THAT IS SELLING CRM. NOT A GOOD SIGN. STAY AWAY.
If I were to do it all again, I would buy something else from a better known company. the ‘runners up’ were a bit more expensive, but not in retrospective. they were not only programmers. they were CRM advocates too, and that at the end is important when thinking about the support you get.
