"Stable and well design---Ares Commander is a great product"

What do you like best?

I love the program overall, the layout and options rival other products in the same category if not exceeding them. It's a very stable product with all the features that one would expect from a cad program along with some that you would not.

What do you dislike?

Overall I have very few issues with Ares, it's a good program with great support. I guess I would like more customization of colors in the user interface settings rather than just light and dark. I use certain buttons often and changing the color of them might be helpful for locating them quicker.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a good program that is in line with other programs of it's type........easy to learn and very little retraining time

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For my small business its a great savings over the other programs that are available. This is important since I also use another product that's very costly, having a good cad program to deal with basic cad drawings has proved invaluable.
