    Delighted with Rakuten Aquafadas !

    Reviewed on 2018/07/13

    Pros

    We are delighted with Rakuten Aquafadas which has been able to accompany us during the digitalization process of our training materials.
    We like most : simplicity of use ; expanded possibilities ; the accompaniment of the commercial and technical team.

    Cons

    We were one of the first customers for the "training" solution; therefore we weren't able to benefit from prior experiences.

    I'm a big fan of Aquafadas InDesign plugin since the origin... I'm an Aquafadas trainer, and certified expert.
    I'm waiting for the free single-doc publication solution !! And a "bugless" new InDesign plugin.

    Pros

    The features are very advanced and unique (multi drag&drop, multi-trigger, animations, sublayouts...)
    The Viewer allows us to show prototypes to our clients.
    And it's in... InDesign !

    Cons

    I'm testing the Beta version of the new plugin, and we have many bugs, problems, and lacking features for the moment...
    The UI is often complicated, not really user-friendly...

    Reviewed on 2017/10/26

    Pros

    The front-office is easy to use through the Cloud Connect. All the changes are update in real time.
    We have the possibility to have some restrictions by using some conditions.

    Cons

    If you want to have this application available for different profiles, you should have a good coordination between your IT services and Rakuten Aquafadas.

    Response from Rakuten
