Pros

I would not want to go into details but WaveMaker is a great tool if you are interested in creating great applications. It is affordable and their customer services team is amazing.
The support team is excellent and their response is quick and effective.
I've evaluated a lot of RAD tools including Mendix, Outsystems, BettyBlocks and I have been very pleased to have choosen Wavemaker. They demonstrate a committment to constantly improving the product.

Pros

One more point can easily be gained by paying attention to the community, which are the fans of their business. The other point can be gained by adding better standard features and design features.
We've been able to cancel our SalesForce subscription and came up with your own custom CRM using Knack. It's affordable, the support is great and it's feature rich.
There are great custom developers that can build entirely or help out with integrations as needed.

Cons

I do not understand why the claimed market leaders OutSystems and Mendix charge so much where as WaveMaker charges only 10% of OutSystems and Mendix.
In the beginning the price and available features were odd. For nearly $10,000 per year you could acquire a Wavemaker license for ONE app.
Developer licence no longer available, $24k per year per application.

Cons

I have also had records that should have been deleted not be deleted. I have put my own stop checks into the app and have not had any corrupted data as of yet, but the issues I've had do concern me.
The lack of support and the turn around time for support is difficult. For companies that use as an integral part of their business it is risky for an ordering system, etc.
However, Knack has always been online, and the issues we have had were mostly attributable to user errors.
