Vincent Snels

Sales staff makes 90% of quotations without the help of Engineering

2012-11-30

With Sofon our quotations are of excellent quality, both in terms of contents and lay-out.

Pros

The abundance of options and combinations made it difficult for the sales staff to provide an accurate quotation quickly; they often needed the help of our Engineering department. We searched for a provider who could meet all of our needs and Sofon turned out to be the best option for us.

Cons

No major Cons.

Robert - Philips Healthcare

Most poorly designed software I have ever used…

2013-04-05

It is counter-intuitive, buggy, and designed in such a way as to require massive amounts of additional unneeded keystrokes ans rework.

Pros

None

Cons

Far too many to list, see above.
