Helped to continue our operations, but there have been speed and reliability issues
We're running into all kinds of speed issues and reliability issues. There are frequent disconnects, and we're not sure whether that's a problem with the product, with the way the product has been deployed, or with server capacity or bandwidth. Our IT department pays attention to that, but we are feeling the impact of that. It also gets a little dodgy when we're having to work remotely. We don't necessarily have all of the full functions that we would have with some of our in-hospital systems. There are times when we have gaps, but that's simply because our IT department hasn't set up all of the applications that we would normally have access to. So, that's not a Citrix problem as much as it is the way it has been deployed. We're pivoting away from Workspace. We're being told we're going to get some of the newer, more robust tools that Citrix offers. That's where we're heading right now. We're not quite sure. We're hopeful that it's going to make some significant improvements for us and make work quite a bit easier, but we'll wait and see.

Fast and has a friendly UI; allows you to consume heavy applications
An area for improvement in OpenText Exceed TurboX (ETX) is the installation process because you need some technical knowledge to install it. Implementing the solution requires knowledge and understanding, so if you're a user, you'd need IT assistance to set up OpenText Exceed TurboX (ETX). What's lacking in OpenText Exceed TurboX (ETX) is a help portal for users to ask questions and seek assistance. The website has a standard FAQs page, but I would like more articles and online material, so you can deal with questions and some of the issues that arise rather than dealing with customer support. I want a portal or online system similar to what Microsoft provides for Microsoft Office products.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
 

Pros

"Citrix Workspace's standout feature is its flexibility."
"The service dash and Workspace Environment Manager service are good features."
"It is stable, easy to scale, and provides secure remote access."
"The most valuable feature is connectivity. The remote connection is the reason we are using this solution."
"The ease of access and the confidentiality and security that it provides is what we like best."
"The most valuable feature of the solution stems from the convenience and the ease of setup the tool provides."
"The price and user interface are great."
"It is a good product. I don't have any complaints."
"The solution is perfect for Linux users."
"The most helpful feature of OpenText Exceed TurboX (ETX) is that it allows you to consume heavy applications that usually have a lot of latency. I also like that the solution is fast and has a friendly UI."
 

Cons

"Citrix Workspace can improve by being more secure, but this would apply to any solution not only Citrix Workspace."
"It takes time to load."
"The ITSM adapters need to be enhanced."
"The application is now very complex. We started with Citrix on PCs. Now, to access the same application, we need to have a StoreFront Server, the Delivery Controller, and Citrix License Server. It's now very complex."
"There is room for slight improvement in performance optimization and interface refinement."
"I heard that Citrix found some loopholes in the product, and they have yet to be covered up."
"Performance could be better if there was a low latency improvement."
"The initial setup is very complex."
"The performance of the graphical interface needs improvement. They should add some CPU to speed graphic acceleration."
"An area for improvement in OpenText Exceed TurboX (ETX) is the installation process because you need some technical knowledge to install it. What's lacking in OpenText Exceed TurboX (ETX) is a help portal for users to ask questions and seek assistance."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"My company opts for the yearly subscription model to pay towards the licensing costs attached to the solution."
"We don't have a lot to compare it to, but we certainly think whatever we pay is worthwhile at this point in time. It's very reasonable."
"The tool is expensive."
"The price of the solution could be less expensive. There are different versions to their solution and the price keeps increasing."
"We are just now approaching the end of our initial purchase, which was an excellent price for us as an academic institution. We got a very good deal to get us on board. That license is up for renewal in about a year, and we are nervously waiting to see what the pricing will be."
"The licensing of Citrix Workspace is worth it. However, it is expensive. Citrix is probably more competitive now than VMware, but it is still a costly solution."
"Citrix is expensive."
"If one is a high price and ten is a low price, I rate the tool's price a three."
"Pricing for OpenText Exceed TurboX (ETX) is five out of ten. It's not that expensive, and it's not that affordable."
