Robust system with flexibility

2018-08-02

Pros

It allows for equipment utilization reports, job cost reporting and other functions.

Cons

Eclipse is somewhat complex in the setup and I would ensure that your company has someone with a background in system implementations to ensure the product is setup the way you desire. Depending on your location they do not necessarily have local support to help with the implementation and the costs to cover travel are pretty high.

Explorer Eclipse User Review

2017-11-15

We are a heavy highway contractor with multiple asphalt plants and quarry/crushing operations.

Pros

Users have an array of tools at their disposal for data retrieval and reports.

Cons

But again, with easy menu customization that problem is solved.

Best IDE for Coding

2018-09-15

More User-friendly Software IDE that can do projects who are trying to put more effects on business logic, not for the lot of configurations and auto-generate things.Best Application

Pros

eclipse is the best software IDE that can do most of the programming things very easily. lots of extensions are provided to do things very easily, time will be saved from that, and also auto corrections and auto download libraries are very important when developing applications, The overall best choice that you can make with Eclipse

Cons

sometimes have to re-download libraries according to projects but it's not the big issue, and like to fee auto detect JDKs and JREs if already installed in PC

this is the best out there?

2017-12-08

Pros

Supposedly - the best for distribution - with regards to forcasting, purchasing, inventory, email, ftp, flat files, reporting is good - if you can figure out how to get the data out. most users / companies can't or spend years trying to ....

Cons

Each time the new company tries to squeeze its users so the new company can implement cost savings and pay for their acquisition. ie outsourcing their customer service reps to other countries without having any training. so until you escalate and waste time, you don't get the question/issue resolved until you wind up back with some cust. service agent in America. 2. lacks automation.

nice IDE to start developing

2018-09-18

Pros

You can even change the appearance to your liking.

Cons

I do not like that if your application is too big, with a lot of files or with a lot of projects, eclipse can not handle to run an application that big and crashes.

many system issues with no support

2017-11-21

This accounting system could be good if they had support that actually supported you and fixed and solved issues as they came up instead of ignoring you hoping you will forget about the problem or find a work around the problem. I have never in my 25+ years of working in accounting have I worked with a system with so many issues and problems.

Pros

has many features that are good for job costing.

Cons

I have one work order that has been outstanding for almost 6 months and they haven't even set a time frame of when they can even start working on it.

Very Well Thought-Out Application

2018-04-10

Pros

I use Eclipse for automated Selenium testing with Java and I love the multitude of features created to make the software development process as simple as possible. Imports are a snap, for example: just enter a method from a given library and the import statement is added for you.

Cons

I'm still using Kepler, which works fine, but I'd be interested in upgrading to the latest version. However, I don't want to simply delete the whole application and replace it wholesale with the latest version. I know there's a way to do a piecemeal upgrade, but I'm not clear on the steps. It would be nice if that were clearer. Other than that, I can't really think of anything that qualifies as a negative.

We've been with Explorer since 2007. All that time we've been confident we made the right decision.

2017-11-29

Customer support is one of the strengths of the company.

Pros

We are a multifaceted company, Explorer\Eclipse fits us well and eliminates the need for stand alone software.

Cons

Understandably, custom work can take some time. We don't always have the time needed for the custom work to be delivered, so we get bogged down with work-arounds.

Explorer - Professional Services

2016-05-27

For medium to large sized companies, I believe you need to invest more into the product than the relatively low-cost initially paid for the software to get the most out of your initial investment and to optimize your efficiency with the software.

Amazing IDE

2018-03-13

Pros

Incredibly full featured IDE makes it easy to focus on coding and problem solving.

Where else would you go for Java?

2018-08-05

Making backend programming for a tool look like a cake walk.

Pros

Provides you with a wide range of plugins and perspective to connect with your tool which uses Java as backend.

Nothing at all. Amazing product. Best one till date.
