Excellent overview. Thanks.

We are looking closely at the CloudVue platform as our go-to solution.

The strengths are compelling, but the weaknesses are concerning and I would like to see these weak areas addressed, particularly those that are going to effect the end-user experience. GUI weaknesses in today's marketplace are a BIG problem.

Thanks for this test, I'm very glad to see how these perform. Of course we have our in-company training and info, but you can't beat a third-party review.
