Pros

Overall experience with Castor is extremely positive. I think the customer support has been great and I really enjoy the company.

AK

Alexandra K.

Easy data download process, great interface, and very affordable compared to the other EDC systems out there.

Arick W.

Very positive and would definitely recommend if given the opportunity.

LC

Laura C.

Pros

Overall, a great experience with Visual Planning. From implementation, to customization, training, support - it's all great and the platform helps us run much more efficiently than we were previously.

NW

Nate W.

During the development and implementation phases , we had superb customer service from Oakfield Software. They were always on hand , either via email or on the phone We could not fault them.

GC

Gary C.

Very friendly for dev/admin teams. Technical product Support is very good.

VB

Vikram B.

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.

VD

Vera D.

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.

BO

Baptiste O.

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.

AM

Andreas M.

Cons

While it is a good thing, so an outsider/average user it can be confusing or intimidating.

MW

Marisa W.

It isn't a 2 minute setup, which won't work too well for small businesses, as it front loads some of the costs.
