"The solution offers multiple OS support.""The ease of use is great. It's pretty easy for users to get on the tablet or whatever and select the bookmark they need and just take it over."

"I have found that the log-in/out process takes quite some time.""There is a very small amount of downtime.""What would be useful would be a notification/warning that a session is due to timeout after exceeding the default connection limit.""If I were to be nitpicky, I would ask that Perimeter 81 offer the option for us to change the color of the graphical user interface, like maybe pink or green or so on.""In order to have to bypass the login using the website, a good feature for Perimeter 81 to have is a login instance in the Perimeter 81 application. I'm using a Mac and we don't have that functionality.""Currently, I am not able to define a different country or location, which can result in negative experiences as the tool is being recognized by websites and this can make it difficult to access them or force me to disable the program temporarily.""I'd love to learn more about all of the features. Maybe a monthly spotlight of features or having a banner that explains more ways certain features could be used would be helpful.""I don't know if it is technically feasible, however, if the Desktop App could be used as a Web App or a Chrome Extension it would be very nice."

"Lacks multiple cloud integration.""Technical support can always get better. Any time you have to call in for any certain thing, it can be difficult."
