What do you like best?

The jQuery and Asp.Net Core controls and libraries are fast to learn and easy to use. They contain a lot of great functionality that save me days, sometimes weeks, in development work. The Telerik documentation, examples and forums contain lots of good and helpful information that show how to use not only the main functionality, but edge-cases as well.

The HTML templating work very well, and make it easy to build layout templates.

I also have made great use of the library code, such as the MVVM bindings and DataSource. Those alone have made my web apps better and easier to develop for data applications.

Overall, it is a great, high quality product with good support and community-based information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Even though I develop in Asp.Net Core MVC, I find myself using the jQuery controls more than the Asp.Net Core ones. The jQuery controls generally are easier to use and more robust when special templates and data-handling are required. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

View the product demo's and code samples, they showcase all of the main functionality Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I create a lot of business-apps for my company intranet. The data-handling libraries for CRUD have made creating the business logic very straight-forward. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The Progress Kendo UI controls are simple to deploy, easy to maintain and integrate well with a variety of web frameworks.

What do you like best?

Using Kendo reduces the number of decision we have to make day to day and allows us to have people focus more on our core value. Using it as a constraint that if there is a UI problem with a component open a ticket and move on has enabled people to be side tracked fixing small UI things less frequently. This is especially helpful in being able to easily use the same UI components on multiple platforms. Be it server side or client side we're typically covered well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Our largest complaint is that the framework/library specific bindings lag behind the core Kendo framework. So far this has been dealt with by including the non-framework specific code which doesn't conflict and if a developer isn't sure how to do this support will walk them through it. Typically when this happens the feature is soon included. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try out the open source Kendo UI and if it seems to meet your needs decently I'd strongly consider going to the paid support with additional features. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We're primarily making CRUD applications and dashboards/visualization screens and kendo has allowed us to spend less time googling for what random tool to pull in and use. As a part of this, I make use of KendoUI, UI for ASP.Net MVC, UI for React, Telerik Reporting, and many of the internal components. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I believe Kendo UI is perfect for scenarios where you need a lot of customization and flexibility. In our company, we are used to customizing some widgets and it's easy and quick to do it.

What do you like best?

Kendo UI is based on a concept of the size of the screens. What I like about this framework is that you no longer have to write so much code, because all the templates are already developed, so you just have to call the classes. It also has a variety of icons, for menus, buttons to customize your templates. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The components and the integration of CSS can be a bit overwhelming to work with and a reinforced knowledge of CSS is necessary. There are also JavaScript conflicts with CSS, because some buttons disappear when I use half-query. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Kendo UI has a good concept and a lot of resources to create your website. This framework is focused on adapting the size to each screen. It has helped me to create several applications and web pages. I recommend it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

With Kendo UI I can create a good website templates for the websites of the company. I have advantages from the practical point of view with its foldable navigation design, which does not use as much workload. Also, from the technical point of view, because the configuration is very basic and it is enough to introduce the libraries in the project under development.
