Pros: As an Academic, I made TransparentChoice my software of choice to teach AHP to MSc (postgraduate) students. In class we obviously use made-up examples. However, many students also end up using the software in their final capstone projects with clients and/or research dissertations, with great results! Finally, I regularly use TC at the end of my course, to understand what priorities for improvement of the course should be pursued and why. The latter 'exercise' provides me with evidence on what works and what does not work of the course each year, and clear guidelines and what could be done to improve; all this is way more effective than any of the typical course feedback mechanisms (old-school questionnaires, filled in individually and separately) that universities tend to use.

As a practitioner, when using TransparentChoice in industrial projects (especially around optimal design of complex automated systems), in the past I have enjoyed very much using the sw in a group decision making/support setting. Running surveys in a group when using TC is a very smooth process that can be completed quite quickly even with people with no prior exposure to the sw. This is of course assuming the 'right' people are involved in the group, but that's another story - and nothing to do with the TC sw anyway!

Cons: The library of tools within TC should be expanded to make the most of what the software can offer to its users. That means, in my opinion, implementing within TC other MCDA tools beyond AHP etc. TransparentChoice, with its modular nature, has the potential to do so. The benefits for the user will be tangible and immediate to tell, thus multiplying choice options for users so that there is plenty of choice of functions available even when one or more the basic assumptions of the more established techniques such as AHP are even slightly violated by a specific project.

Pros: It enables decision makers to explicitly state what is important and guides the correct conversations leading to better decisions with more buy-in and understanding.

Cons: It's a technical thing that I'm sure will get fixed but I would like better control over the scoring/weighting curve - it's not always linear and bigger is not always better - at the moment this requires numerical manipulation outside of the software.

Overall: I have found the team at TransparentChoice to be fantastic, eager to take on board and implement suggestions for improvement. For a relative newcomer in the field, their offering is mature and capable, and has proven its worth in helping me to gain consensus of understanding as well as direction. While some decision modelling skill is required in setting up decisions, from the viewpoint of a survey participant it is very simple.

Pros: It is a light software for a complex aplication.

It means, make acessible robust concepts about decision making

Cons: It woul be good if we have the option of multiple languages, other idioms as spanish

Overall: It helps, a lot, the alignment of the point of view of multiple decision-makers.

The software helps to reduce the time of the meetings, in 3 hours it is possible to prioritize the strategic objetives and evaluate 20 projects in one day.
