User Reviews of Explorer Eclipse

Submitted on February 22nd, 2022 by Steve McCants

Learning curve is very difficult, support is very slow to respond and support will not share insight on how to resolve a problem when they completed one to keep us from doing again. We have been using the product for 3 years and spent $20k on payroll training alone and still it’s a challenge. It does not operate seamless at all. Very, very boxy program. 3 years and still not comfortable using it.

The Good…

Would be a really good program if it could do what they say it could. It does have potential. Needs more R&D

The Bad…

Learning curve is very hard and program is inconsistent
