There isn't much to tell, I do not really like this vendor. The system is very powerful, but not user-friendly. They are a large company, and have been in some acquisitions, which has changed the system.

The product seems robust at a first sight but it is really hard to operate. I like the domain-concept to manage users and descentralize administration.

Their sales pitch and communication at first was great. I don't know if the company was maybe going through some change. It didn't work out for us.
