"A great tool designed for collaboration and security"

Comments: I love this tool. It allows me as the admin to easily manage user logins, perform regular version updates and monitor usages. The best part is the customer service, which is timely and helpful.

Pros: It offers a secure environment for users to use, store and retrieve key information that could help decision making in the organization. Being able to host the tool via EASA in the intranet is a key for us.

Cons: I hope the user interface could be improved further and the setup process could be easier.

"Flexibility, written all over it"

Comments: EASA as a company is great to work with, along with their product knowledge and support teams. We always have somebody to depend on for any and all questions. Their support team is the best support team we have worked with.

Pros: We needed a flexible software for the functionality we use EASA for. We got much more than what we wanted, where the business has flexibility in their functionality and IT has the required security controls and release management, easily drawn on it.

Cons: Dependency on multiple servers and infrastructure needs. We do see a large amount of infrastructure needed for the software, but, that is manageable in the current era of Virtualization.

"Good RAD tool to empower business users"

Comments: We have used EASA to build a basic CPQ tool which we have continued to evolve as we have gone on. This tool consolidated dozens of poor or non-existent processes across our EMEA business and a ticketing tool which has some functionality we don't think an off the shelf tool would have. We are also developing a sophisticated pricing database to replace an old access database. There will also be other applications in future. Overall we have about 50 very active users and up to 200 in total. On the whole the EASA team are supportive and responsive when we have issues.

Pros: I like as a "citizen developer" I am able to develop and publish my own applications without having to rely on IT and having the budget for IT development beyond the ongoing licence costs. For somebody of the right mindset (the sort of person who develops spreadsheets/macros) it is easy to pick up and create/deploy apps quickly. The ability to put a wrapper around a pre-existing excel is also attractive so you don't have to code logic but you are also able to build out an application without this. The tool itself is also pretty quick.

Cons: It can be tricky to debug an application and this can cause frustration because you can add the basics of a feature in 30 minutes (great!) then spend 30 minutes figuring out the one thing you've not got quite right (frustrating) - compare this to being able to easily step through code in other applications. There are some basic debugging tools, and you can build your own in but this can be timeconsuming and it would be nice if this was standard. On occasion this debugging has uncovered bugs in the underlying software, but these can normally be worked around and EASA are supportive in finding work arounds quickly.

"EASA Software for an Automotive Engineering Application"

Pros: - It is relatively easy to get an EASA app set up and running.
- Our analysis spreadsheets are secure, more widely available to users, more error-proof (users can't accidentally change equations)

Cons: - Once the app is built, it can be challenging to get the formatting exactly as desired.
- We occasionally find bugs that sometimes take a while for EASA to address.
- Getting results (or partial results) out of EASA can be more difficult than it needs to be. For example, copying and pasting data from a table in EASA doesn't work well.
