There are "no cons", from our perspective.

Thank you for the review! We are seeing more and more of our clients using TACTIC for document management across business units - these can be complex documents often with many assets associated to the document.

Also, we have invested in the user experience over the last few years and we appreciate this 'easy-to-use' feedback. That was not always the case!

True management

2020-02-10

Pros

True asset tracking AND management. Don’t be fooled by the “other” off the shelf options, long term Tactic can be cohesive in any environment.

Cons

Learning curve can be high out of the gate but once configured it’s much more powerful then other solutions.

Diego, thank you for the review! We are glad you find the software useful in your operation.

A quick note around setting up open source. Yes -- setting up the open source can be difficult but -- as you mention the TACTIC community is growing (which we are very pleased with) and we also offer professional services support to help. Southpaw also offers a suite of products which are all built on TACTIC. This is especially useful if an organization does not have dev resources.

Great Open Source!

2016-05-12

Some of pros include: - It can work with many db engine out there like sqlite, postgreSQL mysql, oracle, SQLServer, and to an extent MongoDB - One can model the process flow of one's work environment in the workflow creator in TACTIC to break down the different steps and plan, set up notification, trigger action at different points accordingly
