CMW has less integration capabilities, this is something that can definitely be improved in the future. On a side note, the MS Outlook integration option is excellent. The UI is decent for its purpose and the platform is well suited for a range of business requirements - customer order management, document tracking and approval management. You name it, they have it.

TLM will be well suited for an organization's recon requirements. If the organization is able to afford the software, it will be worth investing the amount. The support for heterogeneous file formats is one of the key features. It can accept swift and flat files. The config screens for ingesting the data are very user-friendly. Overall the time taken for setting up a new recon is very less. TLM can be improved if they bring in some AI/ML algorithms for improved match rates.

It's more of drag and drop functionality. It is quite easy to set up. Creation of form is very easy. Support Team of Comindware Tracker is good and very friendly. It is efficient in terms of task management, project management, team management, vendor/client tracking.

Other than trying Comindware Tracker it is newer to me, I have used Adobe software multiple times and are familiar with their products. I won't stack Comindware Tracker against them because they both are amazing. I like using Comindware tracker because it is easy to use and is great for me, it helps optimize and maintain my workflows.

Excel was used as a traditional recon tool using macros for matching. There is no room to scale up the recons using excel. The recons are cumbersome and take a lot of time to complete. There are more chances of manual errors. No UI to create a good user experience. Overall all negatives compared to TLM
