Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Its protection policies are most valuable. It protects mobile devices as well as individual apps. It is pretty scalable, and its documentation is also pretty good. It is also pretty straightforward to deploy.""One of the main features of the solution is it allows the management of many devices in different ways.""The stability of Microsoft Intune is good.""The Autopilot feature is fantastic. It is a Microsoft product, so it deals best with Microsoft operating systems, but it can integrate with iOS, Mac OS, Linux, and Android.""This product works very well for companies already using the full Microsoft suite.""The central administration con dashboard is very easy to use and provides very good oversight on all that needs to be monitored.""Application deployment and keeping the devices secure no matter where they are, by having this cloud solution — that has been great.""The solution is easy to use."

"We can do auto patch updates using SOTI. SOTI has been well placed in terms of the number of endpoints it can handle.""All features are useful. It is useful for preventing the use of unauthorized software on corporate-owned devices. It provides an option to lock the devices for unauthorized software. The devices can only be used under the supervision of the device manager.""The SOTI MobiControl Assist tool is very good for remote controlling devices for troubleshooting. SOTI MobiControl is very helpful.""The installation is very straightforward.""The most valuable features are visibility and remote access.""The most valuable features are remote control and geo-fencing.""It is very reliable, and their support is excellent.""The remote control we have helps us a lot."

Cons
"The reporting needs to be a bit more interactive.""It would be better if they can reduce the cost of the license.""The difficulty of the the roll out is surprisingly difficult considering this product is supposed to be an integrated part of the 365 suite.""Lacking ability to leverage more iOS device management internally.""I would like to see the ability to deploy custom packages as a Windows 64-bit package, as opposed to the Windows 32-bit, which is the only one available now.""The solution could improve its flexibility.""The configuration could be better by consolidating options and making it simpler.""There can be delays in the deployment of new policies."

"The pricing policy of SOTI is not stable. You buy it today at one price, and the following year, it becomes something like 5% or 7% higher. From my point of view, SOTI is a little bit weak in terms of implementation on the new Windows 10 devices, and they have to work on this. It can't compete with Intune and other solutions when it comes to Windows implementation. It almost doesn't work with iOS. It works well with Android.""It would be helpful if the product offered more integration and more features around the iOS and macOS platforms.""The solution could use better reporting.""There is room for improvement when it comes to the ability to customize devices and choosing what information goes onto them.""Companies like SOTI and Mobile Iron are working with Google to help them manage these devices and eliminate the use of bar code scanner sales and mobile device sales. That's kind of crazy.""Adding more features for iOS devices would be an improvement.""SOTI MobiControl could improve by being more user-friendly.""In the next release, they should make it easier to migrate."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "For Microsoft 365 E5 clients, cost is not an issue as this product is one of the benefits."
  • "The price of Intune is included with the license for Office 365, so we don't have to pay anything extra for it."
  • "The pricing for Microsoft Intune is reasonable. Our clients are satisfied."
  • "The price of Intune is often included as part of a bundle with other Microsoft licenses, which makes it somewhat cheaper."
  • "Licensing depends on how you are providing support to your enterprise, whether it's device-based or user-based."
  • "We work with the subscription rather than a server license. I think it's economical this way because we don't have to have a server license for that, and I think that works in our favor."
  • "Pricing can be improved."
  • "The price could be better."

  • "There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
  • "Its pricing policy is not stable. The licensing is on a one-yearly, two-yearly, or three-yearly basis. There is no monthly fee."
  • "SOTI is fairly priced. It's not super expensive. If you have a thousand devices that are licensed, it's going to start climbing up in price. Typically, it's like 25 bucks a seat for a year."
  • "We have annual licenses to use this solution."
