Useful virtual desktop usage from anywhere, simple deployment, and straightforward to maintain
Our usage of Citrix Workspace includes standard office applications as well as specialized ones, such as those for automotive design and engineering from a major car manufacturer This solution has been convenient for us and has our capital cost increased. The most valuable feature of Citrix…

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

"The service dash and Workspace Environment Manager service are good features."
"Its user-friendliness is most valuable. It was easy to log in and navigate. Some of such solutions are not very user-friendly, but this one was."
"Citrix Workspace's standout feature is its flexibility."
"It is a good product. I don't have any complaints."
"The most valuable feature is the seamless application edition with the low-level network bandwidth because we have between 10 and 15 sites in France with a low level of communication needs. We need to deploy our main application, the ERP system, and we needed an efficient solution to provide a solution to the remote sites, with very small links between the data center and the remote site."
"Getting access to the applications for which we otherwise have to be on-site is probably the biggest advantage"
"Ability to connect remotely."
"It is a stable solution."
"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."
"The solution is perfect for Linux users."
 

Cons

"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."
"Citrix Workforce is good, but it needs improvement in diagnosing network issues. When errors occur, it is difficult to determine if they're due to network issues, Workspace issues, or environment issues"
"Citrix Workspace can improve by being more secure, but this would apply to any solution not only Citrix Workspace."
"There is room for slight improvement in performance optimization and interface refinement."
"It is slow. When everybody is logged in, it does have a tendency to slow down. You can tell the connectivity slows down a little bit, but it's still a good product."
"Citrix duplicates multiple processes."
"The product has some bugs, making it an area of concern where improvements are required."
"The product is currently not working well in hosting conferencing software like Zoom, Team, and Salon."
"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."
"The performance of the graphical interface needs improvement. They should add some CPU to speed graphic acceleration."
 

Pricing and Cost Advice

"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."
"Citrix 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 seeing a return on investment with Citrix Workspace."
"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."
"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."
"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."
