Cons
Acoustic
  • The organization of the application is poor and some elements could be more easily accessible not buried in menus.
  • There is little to no community around the application and what does exist is out of date.
  • Does not work well with our IBM applications as well as you would expect, which seems a common issue with IBM products.

  • Getting emails for every single change is really annoying.
  • It seems pretty easy, but I suggest you take time to train anyone who will be working on it.
  • API integrations could be better as it doesn't work 100% of the time.
  • Layouts created are static and you can not move the order.
