What do you like best?

The flexibility it offers to customize solutions which may not be part of the native functionalities. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Certain functionalities are locked by the vendor and hence need their support. This sometimes take time. However, its a matter of perspective since these functionalities are the core and may not be feasible to be unlocked for clients.

Also, there are certain markets that we operate in which are currently not the focus of SCD. Hence market requirements of these regions doesnt come inbuilt. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Have automated many process points in our day to day work. We also feel confident that new client/market requirements can be handled in the system without creating manual touch points Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
