TEC Analyst Observations on Accept360

As for the level of support offered by Accept360, all sections of our research model were well covered, except product investment value optimization in the portfolio management module, which has a lower score than the average solution. But the product is generally very strong across the board.
Decision makers looking to buy software for product development should not base decisions on this report only. Factors other than the level of support provided by vendors should be considered, such as total cost of ownership, reputation and robustness of the software vendor, professional services, etc.  Read more
