Pros

It is a pleasure to work with eXplorance. The customer support team is outstanding and support staff members are truly interested in helping the customer get the most benefit from their product.
We use this survey tool for our student course evaluations and it works great. Explorance is a great company to work with, their customer service is top notch.
This information is helpful because we get to know what needs to be done for students to respond positively and to improve so to get constructive feedback from these evaluations.

Cons

They used a third party software (ABBYY) to generate forms, and no matter how meticulously our printer was calibrated, there were always problems in the scanning and upload into Blue.
Without this information there was a little bit of confusion and we ended linking wrong people to modules as we relied on Blackboard information.
I get they are an 'online first' company and a software above all else, but I was disappointed by Blue's inability to reliably process and integrate data from paper forms.
