The implementation process was difficult. They did not have the resources to roll-out the product on time so our team had to do most of the work that was supposed to be done by Vena.
However, now that we are up and running, the support desk provides very quick solutions to technical issues and our account manager has been great.

Customer service has been very helpful and quite swift in replying to questions or technical problems. They are committed to a good customer experience. Our direct liaison has been extremely effective in leverage his in depth knowledge to help us succeed. The Vena general support team has helped troubleshoot various issues as well quickly and effectively.

Cuenta con cierres de mes detallados y con buena y amplia información que nos permite desarrollar e innovar otras áreas de trabajo. Tengo el deber de informar que el soporte de Vena Solutions cumple con nuestros más altos estándares. Puedo comunicarme rápidamente con sus expertos si alguna función de Vena me resulta difícil. Esto es algo que realmente aprecio y creo que lo convierte en un producto maravilloso. Hay más virtudes que fracasos.

The help desk has been very responsive when we have reached out. But the implementation team brought the score down. We are now having to re-work some of the templates because they were not initially created with the most efficient methods. We are frustrated that time is being spent to make these updates when Vena's team created them.

Although the initial setup for Vena Solutions was pretty difficult, they helped our team throughout the whole setup process and answered all our queries as soon as they could. Every time we raise a request or an issue with the support team, they respond back instantly and follow up periodically till our issue gets solved.

Support at Vena has been noticeably improving. When I have simple issues, they are resolved very quickly, with very friendly service. When I have a complex problem requiring tier 2 support, these situations generally take days to resolve. But the tier 2 support is always very knowledgeable about the product.

The Vena support team has been helpful whenever there has been a problem. There is also a very useful knowledge hub with users willing to help out, which has really been beneficial, especially when using some of the more complex features Vena has to offer.
