Pros: I like that when I receive a message, it makes a noise to get my attention & the window stays on top of the other screens I have open. I also like that the messages arrive at the destination FAST.

Cons: There really isn't anything that I *don't* like. I guess I could say that it is easy to accidentally close it out, but that's really on me & not the software.

Overall: I am able to communicate with my team without having to leave the exam room.

Very easy to use

Pros: This software does not take up much CPU or computer memory resources and works very well. Each computer is customized very easily to whom is using the terminal and messages can be stored for long term retrieval. Web links, file data file transfer links, the program fits our needs very well.

Cons: It would be nice to show pictures within the messenger but this is a low request. you can always send a link to the file or web location. I'm sure this prevents excessive resource utilization and helps with the logging of messages.

Overall: Office communication is enhanced. Confidential information can be typed versus verbal communicated around patients. This works very well in our pharmacy where we have multiple rooms and we can refer back to the message for information.

love it!

Pros: We are a tax service. Our office is small but we are extremely busy during tax season. Messenger is great for us, with a few short keystrokes we can talk to each other without getting up or picking up the phone. It's perfect for us!

Cons: having the list of users in my way at times, I wish I could reduce its size without putting it in the taskbar

Overall: as previously stated...we liked it and used it daily

We use it interoffice and has allowed for more efficiencies. We love it!

Pros: We can communicate in real time interoffice without getting up every time we need something. I can have a running conversation with multiple people and keep working.

Cons: I do not know if there is anything we do not like about the software. We are a small office so we have not run into any cons.

We use it daily as an Inter office communication tool.

Pros: I like using this product instead of calling since patients can hear everything I say due to an open environment.

Cons: It is difficult to add or subtract people we have on the program so the actual setting up and changing is a little harder.

Overall: ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITHOUT CALLING ANYONE

Pros: Its easy to use like texting an individual.

Cons: The actual set up takes a little longer to do than anticipated. IT is a little harder to remove someone too after they are no longer at the facility.

Overall: This product is an essential tool for this office to speak to each other by texting when calling on the phone to each employee is not recommended in an office setting. It helps us with blasting info when meetings are coming up etc.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would recommend this highly to any office and I would get the package with no limits.
