We use the Telerik UI ASP.NET AJAX controls on our intranet web-application software deployed to various automotive customers. The controls helped accelerate the creation of screens and dashboards with a consistent user experience. Further, the controls added features and functions without requiring boiler-plate code to be added (such as the Grid control providing filtering, sorting, and paging right out of the box without any additional code work). Other controls (such as the Tree Drop Down), provide great user experience with little to no additional customization required to get the web control to behave / present in the fashion we need. Finally, the demos from Telerik provide excellent references for determining how to do things. The only draw back is on the documentation side, where if you step out of the demo examples, it can be difficult to find the information you need on the document site, and determine what and why you need to something special. Overall, I would emphatically recommend the use of Telerik UI controls to vastly improve the UI experience for your end-users, and accelerate the development time involved in creating the User Interface screens.
  • Great Demos
  • Excellent out of the box features built right into the controls
  • Fast development time to go from nothing to fully functional UI
  • Accelerated cross-platform development (responsive web design)
  • Well moderated forums for getting questions answered
  • Steller support - questions are answered in a timely fashion and usually get right to the solution.
  • The documentation site (not the demo site) sometimes leaves something to be desired, particularly if you are stepping out of the 90% usage scenarios.
We have used the Telerik UI controls for our Admin user experience. We found that this lead to consistent user experience, with feature rich functions already provided. Effectively this meant that hour for hour, using the Telerik UI improved productivity in creating screens with more functions than using the default controls in ASP.NET. At this point most of our focus with the Telerik controls is User Interface oriented.
Both the support forums, and the support tickets are quickly responded to. The support team is very knowledgeable and often can provide useful steps to correct the issue. If not, they can usually point to a patch, or an alternative.

I use Telerik UI to develop Web Based applications using MVC. The use of the software components is extremely easy and very powerful. The presentation of the data using the Grids/Graphs/Reports is the biggest selling point in showing our customers the software that was developed using the Telerik controls.
  • Grid Data
  • Graphs
  • Reports
  • Documentation is very poor.
  • Need more code examples.
  • The Carousel Control needs some vast improvements.
The use of the Telerik Data Grid to be able to data-mine is a very powerful tool. To be able to quickly sort, group, filter, and export data that is presented in the grid has been one of the major selling points we use in selling our software is that is was designed using the Telerik Data Grid.

We use Progress Telerik UI, specifically for Blazor in multiple applications throughout our company for both internal and external customers. The pre-built components are used for several areas of visualizing data and data manipulation.
  • Prebuilt Blazor Components
  • Helpful demos and documentation
  • Reporting software
  • Custom functionality within the components
  • Less breaking changes between versions
  • Updated documentation regarding devops pipeline implementation
TileLayout is a quick way to setup customized dashboards for users Forms can inherit objects without having to spend a lot of time building out inputs. Charts are extremely easy to implement and broken up to help simplify customization. The CSS file is extremely large and needs to be slimmed down and simplified to allow multiple elements to use single a css class instead of multiple elements using multiple classes.

We specifically use it for Blazor UI Components, across multiple projects in order to cut development time down.
  • Scalability
  • Easy to Duplicate
  • Styling is messy and over complicated
  • Updates can break existing components used in your code
It's great in business/internal applications where design and styling are less important. It's not as ideal in highly developed and designed environments where the app is customer-facing.

We use Progress Telerik UI for many of our commercial applications as well as custom-built applications. I like the completeness of the suite as I rarely have to go outside of the suite for UI components. We use Winforms, WPF, Xamarin, MVC and ASP/WebForms. Because we drift between the many platforms and webforms, I like that there is a familiar feel when switching between something like a web app and a desktop app when dealing with a grid for instance. I like the Progress Telerik UI control panel to manage versions that I have installed on various platforms.
  • Regular updates. I know I can expect updates that contain not only bug fixes but additional features. The quarterly updates are at the right interval and can be built into a management plan.
  • Examples. The supplied examples are incredibly useful, and often provide ideas on how to approach a UI design. I often pull up the examples and use them to show the team when we are spitballing ideas on a UI design.
  • I find license management to be simple to use and manage. I like the discounts for early renewal.
  • I'd like to see the radwebcam include the ability to read/decode barcodes or QR codes and possibly raise a barcode read event.
  • The visual studio add-in takes a while to load, so I constantly get the slow add-in warning from visual studio 2022
  • some of the winform controls seem to have poor performance such as carousel.
Well suited for web apps that need rich UIs that can utilize modern browsers Well suited for thick desktop apps with moderately powerful PCs. Well suited for presenting great dashboards, and the rad grid is second to none. Great for creating HMIs. Not so well suited for old browsers or on low-powered windows pc running thick apps. Such as a windows based tablet. Tablets running windows

We use Telerik UI in our enterprise software solutions built on top of WPF and ASP.NET MVC. It reduces our time building user interface from scratch by our own so we decided to use cutting edge Telerik UI to fast track our development and delivery process. Using Telerik user interface it does not need more expertise rather your current resources can take care of the migration from native to Telerik UI.
  • It reduces lot of time building modern UI
  • It has rick library of UI controls, Grids, and Charts to use in enterprise applications
  • Rich reporting tools
  • User support should be improved
  • More Demo applications with code should be available hasselfree
  • There should be a community edition
It suits in enterprise software applications to reduces time building user interface from scratch and rather using cutting edge Telerik UI to fast track the development and delivery process. It has feature rick reporting tools which is most attractive in term of if you have lots of reporting in your application. Small companies may find it difficult to use due to its cost.

We have worked extensively with Telerik's React, Blazor, MVC, WebForms and PDF Document Processing controls for a variety of applications.
  • Great support
  • Good quality UI components
  • Great UI control performance
  • Poor PDF library: generated files were MASSIVE in size. We switched to Syncfusion because of this issue.
  • Poor user experience with their date picker components (too many clicks to choose a year in the past)
  • Documentation could be more complete
  • Telerik launches iOS components and then dropped them
If all you need are good-quality UI components, then Telerik is an excellent choice. Great performance. Excellent support. If you need to work with PDF files, be very careful: the Document Processing for PDF is very immature compared to offerings from other major vendors. Many limitations with digital signatures. Also: documents you generate will have MASSIVE file sizes that your users will complain about. Our organization is in the process of replacing Telerik with Syncfusion controls because they also have excellent UI components but have a stronger PDF offering (our generated PDFs with Syncfusion are between 10~50kB whereas with Telerik they are 500kB~7.5MB).

We have used Progress Telerik UI to build aesthetic and modern user interfaces for Dot Net based web and desktop applications. It has enabled us to fasten the process for UI design and development with the help of pre-built components and extensions. It is embedded easily with Dot Net based applications and allows for a ton of customizations in the UI as per the requirement of the client.
  • Good support from Telerik team on the issues faced
  • Excellent Grid control options
  • Multiple customizations for each UI component
  • Excellent pre-built examples to meet and fulfill the design requirements
  • Each control has multiple attributes. It becomes difficult to understand the functionality. If the team could provide some tooltip or documentation, it will help the engineers.
  • Setting up nested grids is somewhat complex
Progress Telerik UI is one of the best web design and development solutions for Dot Net based applications. It has extensible support for ASP.NET Core, C#, WCF, and ASP.NET WebForms. It overall improves the design structure for the applications and provides multiple customization options to meet the requirements of clients and end-users.
The support material and documentation provided by the Progress Telerik UI team are really good and insightful. But the micro options and tool utilities still lack some meaningful and more useful examples and information. Overall we are happy with the support.

We are using this tool to develop MVC applications throughout our entire organization. Designing became more flexible with the use of this tool. It provides great support for Angular, MVC, React, and Vue development. It provides a light-weighted framework that takes less time to compile. Kendo provides a lot of built-in HTML elements which are easy to use and require much less coding to create any elements. It can easily be customizable as needed. Moreover, it also provides reporting tools that help generate reports and can be easily integrated with PDF, Excel, or CSV.
  • Easy to configure with application.
  • It provides flexibility for complex grid customizations.
  • Takes less time for quick development UI elements.
  • UI is very responsible, which can be viewable in any device.
  • Great support from Telerik team. It only takes 24 to 48 hours to resolve your issues.
  • Sometimes element customization takes longer than expected.
[Progress Telerik UI is] suited for rapid development, along with quick integration for any web application like ASP.NET, MVC, Core, Angular, React, etc. It is not suited for Windows applications.
The Telerik website provides detailed documentation of each HTML control with a number of examples of the methods and events. It also provides how-to integrate controls into your application. It only took 24 hours to resolve my queries.

Started using the Telerik rad ajax controls, because of the rapid app development impact. Whilst you could write all the controls by hand, this offered consistency and product support, unlike https://material-ui.com/ components that are partially documented and not fully tested. So if you are focused on delivering features then [Progress] TelerikUI is great, but it looks like Telerik /Office 365 controls, so very familiar to the user. If you want to be unique then less good. Of late I used it to generate many internal line of business applications, replacing Excel Spreadsheets and associated graphics. It's very speedy in doing that.
  • Support
  • Testing
  • Demos and examples
  • Framework support
  • Pricing
The key feature is Rapid Application Development with a focus on Internal Line of Business applications - Business digitization. Assume your company has less than 5 developers and you are either fire-fighting or quickly solving problems, where the solutions have to work on all browsers, meet all standards because you don't have the resources to do it. You are paying for their technical support, their extensive testing as you don't have the time, if you want it to follow conventions e.g. BootStrap or Material Design out of the box, then that is just a selection.
Less good at creating a UI that is very different [from] everybody else, e.g. must not look like BootStrap or Material or AppleUI.
Telerik UI support is what you are paying for.
If something does not work you ask them for an example of how to solve your use case.
The SEO on their sites is awesome and so well bedded into Google.
The videos are good, [they're] not used much but their examples and DoJo examples make all the difference.

Telerik UI has been used in our company to speed up the development time. It is not used company-wide, but for every team that I have been on, I have made sure we use these tools because it is easy to learn.
  • Easy to understand documentation.
  • Fast development
  • Very flexible
  • Needs some improvement on DevOps documentation.
These tools are amazing for being able to get up and running in your project fast. It also makes some UI components much easier to implement. I particularly like the Grid because I use it everywhere.

Progress Telerik UI is used for web app, desktop across the whole organization. So far we are happy with the product. Telerik grids, dropdowns have their own inbuilt styles, so no additional styles are required most of the time. Also, Telerik UI components provide Helpers for easy to use.
Problem is, sometimes when we use other JS framework, these framework components are not compatible with Telerik UI.
  • Progress bar is provided, no need to additional libraries
  • Kendo Grid provides paging, sorting, no need to add additional code
  • Telerik Progress Modal windows are easy to use, adding styles
  • Kendo Grid, highlight last updated row after page post back
Progress Telerik components are easy to use for dashboards, different types of reports. Telerik Progress components are easy to use on web forms, MVC framework web applications, and Single page applications

We were able to rapidly prototype and develop a concept application for our new hardware. We needed a way to allow users to move fixed elements around a screen, similar to PowerPoint, and [Progress Telerik UI] had an out-of-the-box solution ready to go. We anticipated this would have required at least two person-months to replicate.
  • Telerik enables rapid application development for the demonstration of concepts.
  • It provides a good set of themes and functional additions to a UI development environment.
  • Each control is packed with valuable features.
  • The support team is responsive and very knowledgeable about making their product work in whatever situation you need.
  • Out-of-the-box performance on inferior hardware is lacking.
  • Our industrial PC (2014 Celeron SoC) struggles to load views containing Telerik controls.
  • Adjusting the nitty-gritty margins that are included with some of the controls requires manual adjustment.
[Progress Telerik UI] is well suited to rapid application prototyping and demonstration of UI concepts with good customization and theming options. It struggles on inferior hardware such as dated single board computers.
Telerik support is very knowledgeable and can adapt to the specific question at hand. Their examples are always well explained and they typically provide customized support solutions for your specific problem. I have never felt like they were responding based on a script. Their communication skills in English are superb.

We are currently using the Telerik UI for Blazor to display grids and editable information to our users. We use it in quite a few pages of our web application and it allows us to unify and grid information without having to build a framework from scratch. We have mostly used the grids and paging.
  • Grid works well and is versatile in a lot of situations.
  • Great support.
  • Way to get up and running.
  • Tabbing from field to field not easy to implement for me.
This is great if you are new to Blazor and need to get things up and running quickly. It also allows for cohesiveness across the application. Great for displaying editable info for the user.

Progress Telerik UI is currently in use in a few different internal websites (internal to our users) that serve several departments. It's very helpful in keeping web UI elements styled consistently across sites and applications, and we have used it for the efficiency of out-of-the-box tools and controls when we don't need to customize things too much for a use case.
  • Use of out of the box tools and controls, like grids and combo boxes
  • Numeric controls are great for limiting users to valid input
  • The combo box is great for multi-select options
  • Nested grids (parent/child) can be tricky to set up but it's possible
  • Telerik does provide a lot of documentation and examples but for a very specific use case you may have to trawl the help forum for a while
It's a great set of controls and tools for getting websites set up, especially for common business use cases. The controls are updated fairly regularly and as NuGet packages, so they're pretty easy to keep current in a solution if you need to. The controls are available for a lot of different environments, too.
Support has been prompt and thorough, no complaints.

The Progress Telerik UI controls are used on several mostly e-commerce websites. It allows easy design and implementation of web pages, such as side settings and admin pages, as well as checkout and search results.

Progress Telerik UI's support of accessibility requirements such as keyboard shortcuts and screen-reader is essential.
  • Use of the grid, combo box, numeric controls for checkout display, and edit of shopping cart
  • The grid control is useful for display of product lists and search results
  • The combo box and dropdown list controls are useful in user profile settings
  • Some of the controls have so many features, use of documentation may be required to identify required attributes.
  • Setting up a grid with master and child hierarchy and other grid features like filtering and sub-setting can be challenging
  • There are many examples on the Progress Telerik UI website to help with understanding but due to the features available, finding an example that matches the requirements of your design may be impossible.
Progress Telerik UI support of several Microsoft technologies such as MVC, ASPNet web forms, Blazor, DotNet Core, JavaScript, WCF, etc. eases cross-development. The controls are updated at least quarterly and available as NuGet packages to allow you to easily update your project with current versions which may add new functionality and/or fixes.
Progress Telerik UI customer support is pretty good. The ticketing system allows a thread of questions, answers, and attachments of code and screenshots. Response time is fairly quick and often has code snippets or pointers to online examples that could be relevant.

There is a large amount of community support forums to get answers or post questions. In addition there is a forum of posted code samples for the various controls.

The Progress update tool easily tells you what products have been updated and allows you to install the updates on your development system. Release notes can be displayed to see what's new.

Progress Telerik UI is a central component to web services and reporting. It works very well at doing exactly what we need it to do. Like any piece of software, you can run into a snag, but the company is very responsive when that happens. The forum knowledge base is also pretty deep. There is a good chance of finding what you need on the forum, or at least someone to point you in the right direction. Support tickets are a step up from that when you need a quicker answer.
  • The Visual Studio integration, including performing updates, is done very well
  • The toolbox and customization is thought out
  • The look and feel for the end user is pleasant
  • Some of the templates for performing functions could be simpler
  • Some of the deprecated functionality works really well, but will eventually go away
Using Progress Telerik UI reporting instead of finding your own path is almost a no brainer. The report creation is similar to products like Crystal Reports. You create your query, plug in the variables, then place fields. You can easily set grouping, sorting, headers, and footers. You can even include SQL comments in the query.
I mentioned before that their support group is very responsive. I once ran into an issue with a recent release. When I checked on the forum they already has a solution and a new release fixing the issue. In the eight years I've been using it, I've only created two support tickets.

Progress Telerik UI allows my team and I to integrate complex UI components into our applications with ease. All of the heavy lifting is done by the Telerik UI components, which allows the development team to focus on solving business requirements rather than troubleshooting buggy code. The most heavily used application with Telerik UI components in it is our internal CRM application. It is used by our sales and retention staff.
  • The biggest strength is that it abstracts complex component-based coding, allowing our team to focus on solving business requirements.
  • The customer support is second to none. We've utilized customer support numerous times to help us solve complex requirements.
  • We really like the ease of integration with Microsoft Office products such as Word and Excel.
  • Sometimes the examples that are given in their documentation don't pertain to how we need to implement a solution, and getting some components to work how we need them to can be difficult. This is where Progress Telerik UI's amazing customer support has come in handy to help us work through our problem.
  • Some components have some difficulty looking good on a small screen such as a phone.
We needed to implement a complex hierarchy tree within a grid so our sales staff can see how accounts are related. We also needed to return many rows of data. Telerik UI components saved the day for us. We have also found that if you have many components on a screen, it tends to slow down Visual Studio and even bloats the DOM code in browsers.
We have used customer support on numerous occasions over the years. They have been extremely helpful in showing us how to implement their components to solve our business problems. They have been very prompt and have even given us working examples so we can copy/paste the code. Customer support has helped us get out of a jam numerous times.

It is used in one of the products I work on.<br>It allows us to design websites and serves good rich UI to show data in grids, selecting them from drop-down, writing text in Editors etc.
  • Telerik has good documentation on every UI element they have
  • Easy to include in product
  • Gives good support on issues
  • Managing Editors and iframes are a bit difficult
  • If they can give styling like material UI that would be cool
  • For drop-down there is no placeholder which would have been a good addition
  • Grid toolbar is not that responsive
For serving data in table format the grid is very powerful with it's toolbar.

We are using Telerik product from 8+ years mostly for web application development. Telerik UI have helped us to speed up the development and release cycle. The stability of the component has helped us to provide with stable and consistent user experience to the users. Support for various platforms have also helped us to look into Telerik library before trying out something else.
  • Multiple platform Support.
  • Extensive library catering almost all the needs.
  • Impressive after sales support.
  • Notification about new releases.
  • Provide Tryout for other platform as well like .net
It works great for web application which is not that data intensive. Also works great when your page application does not have a layered layout.
It easily adopt to mobile layout if implement properly making you applications layout easy to maintain.If you are not developing web application then this is not for you.
The help and sample are really great you can just follow the implementation DOJO and use it in your application. The content are detailed and precise especially javascript framework. All possibilities are accurately demoed to make them close to real life situation. The online also at times help to troubleshoot the issue you may run into and make it easy to communicate to the support team.

We are using Telerik for product called Superload which is used in US. We are using Telerik for making UI standard through out the product.
We are using Telerik Grid for add, edit and Delete functionality. Using Grid Toolbar for export functionality. Using Text box mask property for Zip code formats. Using File upload control for uploading files from UI. Using cascading drop downs at some places.
  • Telerik Grid is very useful for CRUD operations on database. We can provide grid toolbar with Add, Edit and Delete buttons. It works perfect.
  • Text box with mask, mask property is like gift we just need to mention formats for input that software wants to accept from User. We use this for Zip codes. US has different zip code formats as compared to Canada. so it make easy just by setting mask.
  • Panel bars, On many web pages we have used panel bars to group related controls together. So UI looks beautiful and user can see all related control together in same section. Panel bar collapse and expand works just fine.
  • After upgrade we faced issue with old version controls. There were some breaking changes in controls behavior.
For CRUD operation, Grid is best option UI and functionality wise. Before in old version of our product there was asp.net grid which was quite difficult maintenance wise but in new version of product it's easy as we are using Kendo grid. UI is very much loved by our Users.
Overall User loves the UI of our product. So we are doing good business.
After upgrade in 2020 we were facing one issue which we were not able to solve(functionality was not working as before and we wanted it exactly same so that our users feel same as before). So we create Issue with Telerik and we got time to time support from Telerik team and we were able to that issue. Telerik Team provided great support.

Telerik UI is used in some of the web applications in my organization.
Mostly we use Kendo controls to display data on UI.
The controls save us tons of time or would take to build equivalent user experience from scratch. All of these have worked well and support has been fast and generally helpful.
  • Good documentation of all controls.
  • Controls are very easy to use.
  • Online examples are well thought out and coded.
  • Their support is generally quick to response. And is always thorough.
  • More control over outlines/shapes.
  • When Telerik introduced Kendo UI for Angular it was very slow to implement every component.
  • Could be better in making some of the features responsive in small screens.
  • Some examples are harder to understand because they work on their sample services.
The Kendo UI controls for jQuery helped me al lot, this was with the ASP.NET controls for jQuery.
The upside of Progress Telerik UI for controls instead of another is the huge community. If you have an issue with one of the controls there is always an answer available in the community.
It's well suited for rapid development.
Support is very responsive and normally replies within 24 hours. Very detailed and helpful replies.

Progress Telerik UI is becoming a company standard to create UI, with more than 250 software products that are slowly transitioning to Progress Telerik UI controls and/or creating new forms from scratch.
  • Themes: the uptime for the dark theme was very quick
  • Lots of custom controls
  • Replacing native .Net controls with Progress Telerik UI is very easy since the API is the same
  • Demo app is a good discovery place
  • Little API nuisances where you have to go deep down an element or implement a callback to get something that could just be a property
  • Visual Studio extension is buggy
