With the responsibility of securing a hospital, SALTO performs well. We have all but one public entrance completely secured by badge access only. This eliminates a lot of threats to our employees, our patients, and visitors to Republic County Hospital. SALTO helps provide peace of mind.

If you are required to develop applications that are cross-platformed, Xamarin is a great tool to use. It will help save time and effort from your development team to be able to build applications seamlessly for android, IOS, Windows, and web on a single platform instead of requiring multiple tools to get the job done.
Read full review Pros Security Access tracking Data storage Read full review Xamarin allows you to write cross platform code. This allows companies to build apps more quickly by writing less code. Having code abstracted and reused across multiple platforms allows for more testing and less issues overall. The ability to use Visual Studio is a huge plus. Visual Studio is one of the best IDE's available and being able to write cross platforms apps while in a great IDE makes everything less painful. Xamarin is now free with a large company backing. This means that bugs on the platform get fixed more quickly and there is a large community of developers. Read full review Cons I don't have any negative experiences with SALTO. I have no suggestions for improvement. I can't think of any recommendations for change. Read full review Forms - not 100% there. Still needs work but is production ready. iOS - sometimes errors can be hard to understand, if they even show up. Insights - Xamarin offers their own crash analytics software. However, it's not perfect and sometimes doesn't pick up crashes. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Xamarin has been great for developing different projects efficiently and effectively. It's nice to reuse the core business logic across different platforms so that there are less to maintain and little replications are needed. The biggest benefit is that C# programmers do not have to learn a different language to do mobile development.

I never had to contact support for any help. Most of the problems we ran into, we were able to identify and use peer support through blogs and other internet sources to resolve the problems. There are plenty of sources online which provide tutorials, discuss problems, etc. Example: StackOverflow
Read full review Implementation Rating
Just with any programming tasks, have a plan first. Design out the system, spend time to build it correctly the first time and have plenty of testing and user acceptance opportunities. Xamarin was easy to implement for a C# programmer. However, you need to do tutorials to realize the platform's capabilities.

Xamarin runs natively on MacOS, and the debugger and other integration and auto-complete tools are far better than
for C# .NET. It also carries much of the plugin/add-on capabilities that are so desirable on Atom.
is a better for generalized software development, provided a developer is comfortable switching between the IDE the command line for certain parts of their workflow, like building, package management, or debugging. But for C# .NET development on MacOS specifically, Xamarin is the best product I've used for the job.

Allows use coding in C# in Visual studio IDE from which we can code in different languages. We don't need multiple IDEs installed Read full review ScreenShots
