Pros

The online portal is excellent as well; there's a whole community ready and willing to assist and help you get better at using Alteryx. Very impressive software.
Great assistance from Altyrex - committed resources at no cost to help implement, train etc. A lot of willingness to help us 'prove' the business case - i.e. make a success of the pilot project.
No coding experience necessary, seamless integration with Tableau and SQL, great workflow icons and capabilities, great automation.

Pros

Overall experience with Castor is extremely positive. I think the customer support has been great and I really enjoy the company.
Easy data download process, great interface, and very affordable compared to the other EDC systems out there.
Very positive and would definitely recommend if given the opportunity.

Cons

The only small complaint I have is that some of the error messages themselves are cryptic and convoluted.
Occasionally, Alteryx will stop processing a workflow because of a minor error. Frequently, that minor error has a handful of different solutions, forcing you to try each solution one by one.
Previously I had to restart the Alteryx service on my machine at least once a week, which meant my workflows weren't running while the service had been stuck and data wasn't moving.

Cons

The randomization is only in blocks and there is no other options for randomization which is a little problematic with a small group trials.
For advanced users, there is no accessibility to more powerfull programming to manipulate the platform. The image/file upload feature is very restricted in file size.
Some building blocks are a bit limited in how they can be used. For example, some can't be set as "required", so one has to create additional fields to achieve the same result.
