Review source: Invitation from G2
Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We have multiple applications that we run through parallels, It helps being able to attach these applications and then assigned a group to these applications and place users into these groups in order to use these applications. Its very nice not having to give everyone access to all apps and keeps it nice and collected in one section. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Able to issue users to groups and gives them access to the particular applications where these groups are published in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For us we have multiple servers that we end up needing to switch every now and then for the application to work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Highly recommend using this product if you have multiple applications that need to be installed on a users workstation. Will help decrease man hours on installing applications when this one will work with no issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

This lets us install one application on a user's computer instead of multiple applications. Saves us a lot more time on who needs what application and once this is installed give them the right groups and they get everything they need in one spot. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the provider helped with:

We resorted to using Parallels for .NET Development on the MacBook Pro's that we had in laying around in our vault. They had somewhat smaller hard drives so the idea of Bootcamp scared most of the guys and we opted for using Parallels. I would not encourage the usage of Parallels as permissions when working with IIS and .NET 4.5 development can get tricky and without experienced .NET developers around who have strong understandings of the Windows systems themselves this can get pretty messy over time especially if you accidentally tweak or work on project files with the wrong apps. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Easy to install, the fact that I can open Windows apps in MacOS without switching to Windows was pretty cool and awesome! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The way my project solutions tended to break and the pricing, Bootcamp is free so sacrificing access to MacOS to run Windows seems fair enough. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the provider:

Great for running Windows with MacOS on a MacBook. Windows license not included last we used it. Just a side not on that matter.

Also keep in mind that you could potentially run into different types of issues regarding permissions with Windows files if you're not careful and do not use Finder to access your Windows storage disk and edit those things from there. Windows might just throw a fit and bail on you in this regard. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Creating the ability for our MacBook Pro machines to be used for .NET 4.5 Development with Sitefinity. I also realized that this does provide you with the ability to run your Windows applications that are not on MacOS, as if they are Mac apps easily and effectively! This was a neat future to discover.
