Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It is stable.""The most valuable features are the decorative style, model-driven development, and the fact that Mendix validates flows. Mendix is quick to develop because it's a low-code platform. It's very robust, flexible, open, and scalable. It's for a low-code customer. The tooling is also really good and it has mobile capabilities.""There is a free version of the solution you can use.""They are leading in the smart manufacturing, and connectivity space.""The solution is stable.""We find it intuitive and easy to use.""There are free online learning and certifications if a user would like to learn more and better understand the solution.""The most valuable features are the integration and UI customization."

"It has definitely improved how we function.""A very flexible solution.""The most valuable features of the Salesforce Platform are the ability to manage customers' data, many report filtering options, and consolidation.""It's very flexible and offers tremendous features for customers.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is the unit coordination between sales and marketing when it comes to lead management.""The queue management of the solution is its most valuable aspect.""Salesforce is the best one out there.""Its stability, performance, and usability are most valuable."

More Salesforce Platform Pros →

"My understanding is that, if you are not using the free version, it is very expensive.""There's no direct tech support.""There needs to be an increase in the number of the UI components.""While the community is great, they need to work on making their direct technical support services better.""There is always a layer of custom code required.""Mendix is slightly less scalable than I'd like.""The platform still has many areas for improvement. If I compare apples to apples, the PWA features of Mendix could be improved, for example, I wouldn't recommend creating a B2C or B2B marketplace or web portals on Mendix, but there's a tendency for people to still do it through the systems provided by my company, particularly implement B2B or B2C marketplace, versus using eBay or Shopify. On the web portal front, Mendix still needs to improve.""There are not enough developers who are using Mendix. The knowledge base available online and in the market is not as rich as other competitors."

More Mendix Cons →

"Their reporting needs to be improved. It should be easier. I don't know how, but it needs to be easier.""Better flexibility in editing emails created from templates would be great, and being able to add hyperlinks in emails for scheduling meetings would allow us to automate more.""I have found it takes an exceedingly long time to put opportunities or clients in the system. If I have an opportunity that I need to put in the system it could take approximately 10 minutes. This is a lot of time when you have multiple opportunities to put in. There are other tasks to do that are required by supervisors, such as forecasts. What I have done to save time is I did not input as much detail as I could have because I knew it was going to take me an hour to get five leads in.""The reporting functionality is not very intuitive.""It is quite expensive. It has gotten to that point where it is a lot more pricey. It has kind of got its own proprietary language for development. It is probably never going to change, but if it had a more market language for development, it would be easier to find developers. They come at a premium cost, so it is expensive.""The interface could be more user-friendly and offer more customization.""When it switched to lightning, it threw me for a loop. When they changed the look and feel, I had a hard time finding things and doing what I used to do.""The solution is a bit expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Licensing costs are similar to those for all other IT technology, but they vary by region."
  • "Mendix seems a bit expensive. But in terms of wanting to have less developers and higher velocity, the total cost of ownership is fine. It's not cheap, though."
  • "Mendix is not open source, but its license cost is cheap, particularly when compared to the Appian license. The license model would depend on how many users you have and how many applications you are creating. If you are creating a single app, you just need to have a single app license, so it's free. If you want a multiple app license to cover two thousand or three thousand users, for example, internal users or external users, then you need to pay for the license. There's also a license model for above three thousand or four thousand, or five thousand internal and external users."
  • More Mendix Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The licensing is per user per month, which we took out a contract on a long time back. It's really an okay price for what solutions are available and for how many features and what kind of functionality you get."
  • "The solution is a bit expensive."
  • "It is expensive. Licensing is on an annual basis."
  • "It is quite expensive. Its developers come at a premium cost, which makes it expensive."
  • "It is expensive."
  • "I have heard that it is fairly priced. It offers ROI."
  • "It is very expensive. Its licensing is on a monthly basis."
