What do you like best?

I like where you have the provision to install a proxy server for better performance. So I commonly used them. Improved file search features. The data is stored in RDBMS which is perfect for the place I work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is no provision for electronic signatures which I think is a huge disadvantage. The user interface sometimes has a lot of bugs Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Good software to start with but keep in mind of the disadvantages like constant bugs. New users will also find it confusing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I use this to store my vendor master data in the RDBMS form. And mainly use this information to compare vendors and decide on the RFQs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The customizable nature of the product. The support for multiple operating systems. This allows me to run a linux server, and still have windows clients. Also the command-line clients allow me to integrate them in a custom build script that can run on multiple platforms. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only feature missing is the integration of SCM file states and Testtrack workflows. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a good and well integrated SCM / Bug tracking system the combination of Surround SCM and Testtrack is one of the best in the market. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We use Surround SCM for two purposes:

1 Source code management

2 Document Management.

Our source code management use is more traditional use relying heavily on the branching possibilities. We also use it to manage our electronic and mechanical designs.

On the Quality control side we use SCM to store all our documents for our ISO13485 certified QMS. Besides our QMS documents we also use the product to store other design information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Currently use two of Seapine applications, surround and testrack. It is user friendly system. It allows the entire lifecycle of the project to be linked up, such as requirements, test cases and defects. Providing the user a complete view of the stability and progress of the project without having to search through multiple systems. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It requires linceses. If the company does not buy enough licenses it could easily become a problem. If users are sharing the licenses people have to log off the system in order for others to login. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Both applications are use for System Analysis, Project Planning, Test planning and execution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
