I dislike that the database has no structure. The representatives of DTS parade this as a defining feature of the database. They say that a lack of structure is "Agile." A database without a structure is nothing. Assets and Work Orders are not linked in a structure - according to DTS. This lack of structure leaves unstable data and the effects of unstable data are clearly visible.
I dislike how bad the user interface is. I would be okay with clunky. This user interface is not merely clunky, but a source of deep problems. For example, pick-lists can be written in and saved with invalid data. The projects module only works after you create your first project - and that requires exploiting the pick-list saving glitch. Very often it is discovered that some button is not working properly. Lists sometimes don't have an order to them. Sometimes lists gather duplicates or multiple duplicates. There is no end to the problems that may discovered in the user interface - every nook and cranny is as glitch filled and broken as the last, and what isn't in a nook and cranny isn't any better. I dislike how in the table view of the Work Order module, that I can "mass close" work orders by hitting the "mass open" button, and as such do not have the option to open work orders in bulk.
I dislike how their database performs with reporting. From what has been shown to us in regard to reporting, both TSQL and PLSQL may be needed for even the most basic of queries. The GIS data is in an Oracle Database and everything else appears to be Microsoft. What information is put in, can't necessarily be pulled out. To this day, no documents have been presented - despite numerous requests - showing how tables are linked together and by what fields. From my own investigations, I find primary keys to be scarce.
From every perspective, VUEworks is simply a bad and broken product. The issues are universal and appear unsolvable - if you dig into the issue log, you find that issues aren't fixed.
I further dislike that DTS fails to be honest or upright in their business practices. They have consistently given absurd answers as to why their product fails to function - that anyone with a background in IT should recognize as gibberish. They use technical language, apparently without knowledge of what the words mean, and expect that their customer won't call them out for it. DTS has also withheld information, such as the existence of character limits, requiring whole portions of implementation to be repeated. I dislike having to work a 70 hour week, redoing my work because I was not informed of character limits.
Finally, DTS does not seem to value the security of their customers (mostly government) and it has been observed that they do practice the most basic cyber-security practices. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
