User Reviews of Hydra X

They are one of our top contenders from a field of 13

The Good…

Most notably is they requested to come on site to review our systems and processes to evaluate our facility prior to conducting the demo, Conversations continued to focus on the routing process and not disrupt what we were already doing. Can pull information from SAP without having to re-write the whole system.

The Bad…

Mixed feedback from our team on modular structure, but seems like it will fit our needs. Can get overwhelming with how many building blocks and modules they have as part of their system.

Seems like a powerful software and could work, it just didn’t seem like it was the most user friendly.

The Good…

I thought they had a pretty good solution

The Bad…

Ended up not being in our top 2, compared to others seemed other solutions would be easier to work with
