"Excellent Multi Technology Development Framework"

What do you like best?

The controls are excellent and have similar look and feel over a wide range of technologies (ie JavaScript, ASP.NET, Net Core, MVC, Files etc). These are all rock solid and can be relied upon in all modern environments (eg VisualStudio 2017, Visual Studio Code). Whilst Angular is best supported, Aurelia (our favourite) is sufficiently supported to get an application working well.

What do you dislike?

The documentation is not always complete in coverage/detail or up to date and any worked examples generally too basic for commercial use. What's New is not always clear. User experience can be an uphill struggle when customising a particular control. Templating features, that are extremely powerful, are sparsely mentioned

Recommendations to others considering the product

Absolutley. There is a Syncfusion way of doing things that is reasonably uniform consiedering the range of technologies supported. Well worth learning will serve well improving performance. Obvioius really.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Interfacing Net Core Business Application Front End and Back End requires a great deal of manual effort (eg naming conventions, jQuery workarounds to apply simple customisation of views). Work takes longer than expected

"Syncfusion and Nothing Else!"

What do you like best?

Almost everything you need to create a professional software. From web applications to reporting and desktop applications, you name it Syncfusion have it.

The software documentation is really good and with the help of their syncfusion dashboard, using a 3rd

party software has never been so easy. The price is affordable compared to other solutions in the market.

What do you dislike?

At first, like any other tools out there, you'll have difficulty using some of the controls but with continuous use, you'll really appreciate how flexible Syncfusion is.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would really like to recommend their WPF desktop controls. Explore every controls and almost everything you need is already available.

Their javascript and web tools also look great. They also have regular webinars about their product and free ebooks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Most of our in-house solutions are created with Syncfusion in it. With time and budget constraints, creating an application is now a breeze. As of now, we are currently focusing with our Management tools and reporting using WPF. Hopefully soon, we can migrate it to a Web App with Syncfusion in mind.

What Other Web Frameworks solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Amazing deal to an amazing suite"

What do you like best?

All the controls we've used (mostly Windows Forms, ASP.NET MVC, Javascript) are top notch: well thought and integrated, easy to use, good object model and great documentation.

The fact that there's a Community License to help startups or small companies (like ours) to build their products using such a complete and professional suite is just outstanding and, for what we know, almost unique in this market.

What do you dislike?

There's not many bad (or less good) things to say about this suite but one thing that really could use some improvement is the installation experience. It's not that it's bad, but it's really slow and somewhat big.

Of course, one can choose what specific components/supported frameworks (e.g. Windows Forms, WPF, ASP.NET MVC, JavaScript) should be installed but, even so, if the whole process was faster and more streamlined, that would be wonderful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do evaluate this product. Of course, there are many suites like this on the marked, similar in many aspects but with some differences in others. Even so, wrapping it all up, the quality of this suite, the experience and reliability of SyncFusion in these kind of products and the Community License availability are all strong reasons to give this suite a (real) chance.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Besides the obvious (and important) aspect of solving problems and improving our products regarding the UI/front-end, we also rely on this suite to solve some specific problemas regarding document manipulation (e.g. Word, Excel, PDF).

"An excellent experience and value for money"

What do you like best?

Syncfusion, like any high-end provider of interface components for software development, has an excellent product portfolio, on that, I do not have much to say other than the fact that they are excellent. But what excites me the most is talking, which is the only company in this industry that I know of, that supports the small entrepreneur, who has to start, but does not have the money. They are helping me a lot, through the community license, which has allowed me to develop my products, make money, and only then pay for the license. I think this model is fantastic, fair and very intelligent on their part.

I've already worked with the Telerik components and I can say with confidence, Syncfunsion is not far behind, and with this licensing scheme, there are many steps forward.

What do you dislike?

One thing that really bothers me in the syncfusion component package is the difficulty of selecting which components will be part of the JS and CSS files. There is a tool for this, but every time I use it, it looks like something did not work out correctly and it's not easy to figure out what went wrong.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Syncfusion as they are very serious and their products are very good. The support is very agile and always solves the problems and updates several times a year the products, correcting errors and adding functionalities. It's very worth it

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am developing a system for churches and I use Essential Studio MVC for this development. It has allowed me to develop a very professional system, with very good functionalities and with an excellent user experience.

"Great documentation with detail contents that easy to follow"

What do you like best?

For me, documentation is 50% and rich control variant is another 50%, that's make my score for Syncfusion is 100%. Ease of use combine with great docs make the source code standard and less code, that's mean easy to maintain the source code.

What do you dislike?

still not found the dislike yet, because everything is great. The documentation is great, the product variant is great, the example is great and the licensing schema that developer friendly. They have community edition! wow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recomended for those who want gain great and beautiful app with standarize coding guided by details docs

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly i'm using Grid, chart and schedule control. Using these controls, make the apps very rich in the user experience. Lot of option for user to interact with the application that make the app raise its level, become more professional.

"What a Deal....Syncfusion Essential Studio. "

What do you like best?

I am using the MVC 5 set of controls right now. Particularly the Grid. This grid is dripping with options that really made the project quick and powerful. With very few lines of code I can generate Excel, Word or PDFs. I can customize the look and feel of the CRUD presentation easily. I have used other suites too, but I find Syncfusion to be much more capable, at least in the ASP.Net MVC5 area. I am looking forward to trying out the other control suites that Syncfusion provides.

What do you dislike?

In the beginning I was unhappy with the free support offered by Syncfusion and I complained about it. I got a response that outclasses most other vendors. Problems got fixed (you have to make sure you do not have typos in your client code) and was up and running within an hour.

I will have to say this though, the free support is slow...24 hour response time. hey..it's free! But if you are not getting anywhere....and upgrade your support options these folks really rock.

Another issue, I find the documentation sketchy in some areas and sometimes seems to not be in line with their latest releases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Absolutely. Once you become familar with Syncfusion's way of doing things...the advantages become obvious

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Presently we are developing an application that links QuickBooks Online to a State Campaign Finance Reporting requirements. It is done in ASP.Net MVC 5. Syncfusion provided us with a Grid that made transitioning the QBO data to state required reports a breeze. We had some problems in the beginning, mostly due to our newness to this product. Once our issues were resolved....we moved quickly. Thank YOu Syncfusion!

"Great controls, great support"

What do you like best?

Controls are alive, always improving with continuous delivery. Direct support is fast and great, also they always help you with a sample of code or reference that try to prove their solution.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes you have to bump your head making something to work because documentation is not well updated ( there is a ton of documentation for each platform ) They need to find a way to quickly update documentation based on releases / or workarounds given for details tasks. Not an easy work

Recommendations to others considering the product

I encourage to actively participate on forums to improve all the experiences and make the product more solid. They always have answered me 95% of times with the best solution or workaround.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy and well done controls in one place, with the same philosophy, makes you go forward faster than work with many third parts.

"Set of Component design like LEGO. Save a lot of time on dealing with UI."

What do you like best?

Powerful BI without the cost. Smooth install and integration with VS. Sample Creator is awesome. The customer service are really good. Always received a fast response that actually answer my question in a clear and effective way. Got result pretty fast. Very versatile. Back-End programmer best friend.

What do you dislike?

The problem is that most people don't see all the crazy stuff that can be done with this tool set. It's only when I make live demo,in which I build an application live, that people see the value. It's a Pandora box so well design. It's offering incredible flexibility and possibility.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Explore the product in deep to understand to idea behind the design. Once understood, imagination is your only limit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

First, I didn't do UI before using SyncFusion. I'm a pure back-end programmer. My back-end easily plug it self to the front-end. Save time!!

The BI is definitely the biggest seller. The price is low and it's something that company can understand because it's more concrete.

"Best Component Suite for Great Apps"

What do you like best?

I found this tools some years ago, when I was looking for a good set of components to enhance an app in development. After try some other component packs, I found Syncfusions, and I knew that was the tools I needed.

With the time, I've see how this company is always innovating, expanding the platforms and languages supported, developing more great tools like the dashboard and report server which are a very interesting tools also.

The cherry on the top of the cake was the releasing all the suite for small developers in the community program, that, like the MS Visual Studio, gives a free license of a professonal tool at no cost for startups and small companies.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I'm not so happy is the long install time for the updated versions and service packs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it, you won't be disappointed

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Get better and enhanced apps is always a benefit, because people using the apps deserves, first of all, a fully functional app, and on a second place, a good looking and easy to use graphic user intefase.

"Achieve your software project development goals."

What do you like best?

Syncfusion offers a variety of tools to boost your software development process in the most visible part of any software product: the user interface. This tools are available to a variety of platforms: PHP, .NET Windows and Web Forms, MVC/C#, JavaScript and XAMARIN.

Been using Syncfusion for a variety of projects for iPad web apps and C#/MVC web sites, and controls are consistent among platforms, that means when you learn a control you learn it for other platforms as well.

All controls are well documented (online and Offline version), so you don’t need to worry about creating developer guides for controls and you only focus on what you have created with their controls.

Free E-books (around 130 at the time of this review) and White Papers provide a great learning tool with specific applications of their tools to BigData, Business Intelligence, mobile development and other topics.

Community Edition Software: For small software companies or single developers, the community edition is a life saver, since you can create a better product without the need of purchase licenses (only for less than 5 users and less than $1 million USD in gross revenue). The Community Edition has all same features as the paid version, access to the support forum and updates.

What do you dislike?

So far, there is nothing I may dislike about Syncfusion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

1. Check the demo section on their website: http://samples.syncfusion.com/

2. Create and account and download/install the trial version.

3. Download specific E-Books related to the language/platform you are planning to use and read them, following the examples (if provided).

4. Check the Online Documentation on their web site (is under Support).

If you like what you see go head an try using Syncfusion on one test project to have a taste of the controls.

Hope this helps you to make an informed decision about selecting Syncfusion. This worked for me.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helped streamline development.

Saved time.

Excellent documentation and support.

"Complete components suite and great customer support"

What do you like best?

I'm a one man company developer with 30 years of experience in software development. I have used more languages and more component suite and finally I have found the one that cover all my needs. I like the complete samples that help me to understand the behaviour and property of each component, great customer support, even if I use Community License (every incident I have opened has been solved soon and the support has follow me till to the problem was solved); modern UI components and a complete suite of components thanks to which you can create any solution for all environments (desktop, mobile, web and so on). Another great feature is the periodical release and patches

What do you dislike?

The only feature not present in this suite is the project WPF template in Visual Studio. It's only present template for Windows Forms app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Syncfusion Essential Studio EE covers all platform a company or a single developer user to create the apps. And it's very important the great customer support and the high quality of the samples provided with the suite.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have created desktop solutions (using WPF) to manage invoices and stock of some little companies and now I'm developing a cloud based app and mobile apps with Xamarin to integrate it with the desktop application.

"Essential Studio for JavaScript"

What do you like best?

A set of controls with a rich API and unified look and feel. Visually attractive, quick to learn the basics. Integrated support for Knockout JS. Syncfusion's support is good. They were able to help me out a lot.

Lots of examples and a live playground are a benefit.

What do you dislike?

Once a customization is needed to the behaviour, it can become problematic. After gathering some experience with the functionality and studying the sources, you mostly end up with a crooked, but working solution.

The documentation sometimes is messy and not generous enough when you expect some information about the behaviour rather than simply one sentence with the property's name and that's it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate and check if it suits your needs. Ask for support, Syncfusion is quite helpful. The clients really like the controls, although our devs sometimes have to fight with it. It really depends on the customization level needed. If the solution needs to be very different from what comes OOB, the process can be painful. But having in mind that previously all control types we used were from a different vendor (i.e. calendar picker found on github, datatables, jquery dropdowns etc.) in one application, having to struggle a bit sometimes for some customization is a low cost in comparison.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are creating solututions for big customers mostly in the pharma business hosted within SharePoint. The unified and clear looksare a big benefit as the visual impression is really important in modern applications.

"High quality library for desktop or web-based development"

What do you like best?

The support team is fantastic; they respond within a business day and typically do so with a sample project demonstrating exactly what you're inquiring about, rather than exclusively pointing to any documentation and leaving it at that. The features themselves are rich and lightweight and the documentation provides a solid starting point to using even the advanced features.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, despite fantastic feature support for Excel, Word and PowerPoint, the File Format library doesn't have support for either OneNote or any interaction with Outlook.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I originally found Syncfusion's suite useful when building out a program for which I needed a Gantt chart within a WPF program and found theirs sufficiently feature-rich at a reasonable price for my startup.

I had another project in which I used what was then their AngularJS tooling since it gave me a set of controls that looked good with minimal effort on my part to style anything. The breadth of chart and graphing controls along with those for forms and navigation meant that I could rely on learning and using a single framework instead of a hodgepodge of libraries from different vendors with different styles.

Most recently I've discovered the File Formats library which provides fast, easy functionality to create and edit Word, PowerPoint and Excel files without having to parse through the XML formatting myself. It's definitely proven to be a big time saver for any document generation need.

"What else is better? Nothing for me!"

What do you like best?

Its not so common these days to find a software company that listens and acts immediately to customer feedback. From raising a query on how a control worked to being given constant feedback/updates and a fix was 3 days - fatest responsive from any software company I've ever dealth with - there are customer oriented. Syncfusion even give away free community licenses to allow small developers to start and rapidly build apps that have the latest and greatest features that look, feel and behave the same as some of the top end highly expensive controls. Syncfusion controls just work and keep getting better and new features.

What do you dislike?

The installer takes quite a long time which is unstandable as it has to install the program and register each control in Visual STudio and the GAC but just feels a little fustrating

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommendation is simple..its just worth getting

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Problem was custom designing each custom control from the ground up and trying to validate was slow and time consuming and as a signle developer I sometimes missed some of the possilbe validation erros. Using Syncfusion, I have modern and robust controls and that validate and checked and in a constant state of improvement. I can now concentrate on app development instead of the time consuming of building controls for my app.

"Great control set - Terrible documentation"

What do you like best?

A wide variety of controls are included that cover almost every requirement in a modern web application.

What do you dislike?

The documentation is serverely lacking and is spread out over numerous locations. It can take an age to find the information needed (if you can find it at all). Far too many times I've had to trawl through the forums to get an understanding of how a feature/method/event is supposed to work, the expected values and structures of return parameters etc.

Quite often it is necessary to look at the documentation intended for other platforms/frameworks in order to get what you need (e.g. looking at examples in the MVC docs that explain something that isn't explained in the classic .Net or JS docs).

There is great online support however it should not be necessary to ask support for basic details that should be in the docs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Rather than using a variety of controls from multiple different vendors in one project I can find pretty much anything that is required in the Syncfusion control set. Having learned the intracacies of one control I can pretty much apply this knowledge across the entire control set. That way I don't have to deal with learning multiple APIs from different vendors.

"Great Tools and Awesome Service"

What do you like best?

Their support team is really on the ball. They have excellent turn around times and are always able to help - even when they find a bug. Their document conversion tools are what we use most and they are really good and getting better all the time.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike but if I had to pick one thing it would be their document to image conversions are different for Azure vs Windows, vs ??. They have different tools that do the same thing and it can be confusing to know which to pick. However, it seems they MAY be moving to a more consolidated model for that based on what I have seen lately. I hope that is the case.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of their preview licenses and contact their support with issues to see how they respond.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to consolidate 3 development tool kits into one using their tools. This simplifies our training and make troubleshooting much easier as we only have one place to go for help.

"Our experience over the last 7 years"

What do you like best?

1. The support over that time has been great. The support I think has progressively improved over the years and the fact that support requests are often replied using samples makes it easy for us to move forward.

2. The breadth and depth of the controls were a perfect match for our requirements. We use Syncfusion controls throughout our solution, but there are three which are critical to us:

* Diagramming Component - Still the best.

* The Grid component - Support for hierarchical data and multiple child relationships; broad editing capabilities.

* The Excel component - Since it's bundled with the rest of the suite it makes life easy to deploy.

What do you dislike?

We developed our solution originally using the old set of ASP.Net controls, so these have been discontinued.

There isn't a great path from these controls to the new ones, but I also accept the shifting nature of web development.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try them! Yes, there are other solutions, but Syncfusion has a compelling suite!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Without Syncfusion we would have struggled to release our solution in a feasible time.

The fact that a single solution has been able to provide us with all the necessary functionality has meant we have kept low the number of dependencies within our software. It also means we're dealing with a single company for most of our issues (should we encounter them).

Using other components from other vendors would mean us having to liaise (and purchase) multiple packages since no other company was (and still) not able to supply us with the three critical components mentioned above.

"Everything you need with just one license"

What do you like best?

There are many good things of Syncfusion solution, from a wide range of tools and technological platforms to an excellent available documentations, but what deserves a particular mention is the level of support, both technical and commercial, which is absolutely great. Every request for technical support and commercial matter is always followed by useful answer in a very short time. Before to buy a Global License I worked for a while with the free Community License and even in that case, the Support received was excellent. The completeness of the suite, the possibility to use the Community License and the great level of support are the features that can make the difference with a competitor product.

What do you dislike?

Really, there is not much to complain about. I can only give a suggestion on how to improve a general level that is already very high, for example improving some part of the documentation with samples of a more complex use case, rather than the basic samples.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed a set of professional tools to develop our products. Initially, mainly in the desktop application with a large use of Grids but I also needed a tool that offered the possibility to interface Excel via code-behind having the potential of a spreadsheet in a Web application. The next step will be to create some dashboards. With the Syncfusion suite I got all of this in one solution with a sustainable cost due to the Global License.

"Absolutely the best thing to add to your belt."

What do you like best?

I have used a number of different kits in the past years (5 and I continue to use Matrox MIL in industrial applications because it is truly the best imaging software out there, simply amazing) and while they all had some awesome features Syncfusion sinks them all plain and simple, even DevExpress, which was my go to in the late 90’s- 2000’s and I hate to call out names (I am sorry). Incredible tools and support that is beyond belief. The help files, the updates and the newsletters are… I don’t know what to say.

What do you dislike?

The Grouping Grid is HARD to work with and the documentation is poor to say the least. I developed applications around the DevExpress Grid in the late 90’s with ease and even SGrid in the early 2K’s (which I helped develop with Steve (RIP)), and they were so much easier to use. Please work on making Grouping easier and drag and drop simple between groups. These things should not require hundreds of lines of code and require so many event handlers.

"Syncfusion for Windows Forms "

What do you like best?

I am using the Syncfusion toolkit since 2007 I think, difficult for me to develop without it as I don't want to implement already existing and available components or libraries. Lot of controls with tons of features ready to use and an access to the source code to customize stuffs at low level code.

What do you dislike?

When the support fix a problem, they don't provide the source code. Need to wait for the next release to get the source code, that's my major complaint as I can't test the fix in good condition

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At first, the Syncfusion toolkit was chosen for the Edit control component, the decision was taken because it was possible, and not too complicated, to add an "unknown" language to the list and support features like syntax highlighting etc... After that, I've chosen to use the ribbon menu control, the grid/databoundgrid controls, pivot stuffs and XLSXIO library.

"Controlsoft experience with Syncfusion controls and support"

What do you like best?

Our company has been using the Syncfusion set of Controls for Windows Desktop. It has been georgeous, these controls has allow us to deploy applications with comtemporany look and feel estetic and functionality.

Now we are adventuring us to discover the Syncfusion ASP.NET and Xamarin Controls. Our target clients and solutions require a lot of functionality base don these platforms.

About Syncfusion support team, we must say it has been very quick, proactive and efficient. We have suggested new features that has been implemented in a very short time.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Visual Studio ID works strangely when using certain controls on a form.

Time consuming installation

"Highly Recommend "

What do you like best?

I'm using the UWP controls of Syncfusion. Most of the controls are very usefull.

For me, DataGrid, the Chart Controls and the MS-Office (Excel, Word) libraries are the absolute highlights.

Why? Firstly they are well documented, you get an Visual Studio Project with full access to the examples.

The Datagrid ist completely costomizeable .

The Charts: There is any chart you need , and the chart controls are very intuitively .

The Excel Library is in my opinion the best in the market. Most applications need export top word or Excel and

this Library is realy amazing.

The Service is top: I had problems with the Schedule Control, and used the community version

of their Product in a private project (so didn't expect much help) .

And they helped me very competently and effectively.

What do you dislike?

They have a verfy powerfull diagrams controls , very powerfull. But the community edition version ist not so well documented.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I compared it with Telerik and some other products. I made a Prototype with each of the Libraries I could get. I think in direct comparison you surely will see the high quality of this controls.

They also have a rich portfolio of JScript/HTML ( modern Architecture Angular etc.) Controls, ETL and Reporting Controls.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Im a professional, experienced SW Developer and use the community edition of Syncfusion Essential Studio Enterprise Edition for personal projects. I have developed Apps for the Windows Store.

"The Best Control Suite Anywhere"

What do you like best?

Some years ago, I switched from using Silverlight for web developement, to HTML 5. In Silverlight, I was using a different vendor, but with Javascript and html, their control suite was no longer working well. I then checked out all of the different major vendors and settled on Syncfusion Essential JavaScript controls.

The suite has every control you will ever need for a web app. To get familiar with all it can do, they have numerous demo apps so you can see it in action and see if it will work for you.

They then have some 17 themes and one of them is sure to be of your liking, whether you like a light or dark them, or something in between.

The documentation is then available which goes into detail every aspect of the control so you can customize it to your needs. And if you need help in getting going, Syncfusion support stands ready to help you out with answer and a sample app.

In several cases, I have asked for something they do not yet support, and they have come through with the requested modifications.

I have been creating web apps with Syncfusion for over 4 years now, and I would much rather use an existing library then to roll-my-own. Syncfusion fits that bill perfectly.

What do you dislike?

There are so many controls, sample apps and documentions that it can be confusing to know where to start. But I have found that the Syncfusion Control Panel that gets installed when you install their suite is the place to start. It shows you all the different suites (Javascript, MVC, Aurelia etc) and then all the different resources for each one.

"Best third party Dot Net extensions"

What do you like best?

The libraries are easy to use and there are plenty of sample code available. I use the word document generation library and the PDF preview and they both work better than expected.

What do you dislike?

The software installs multiple versions of the same library, which makes it slightly cumbersome to pick the latest library to link the project to. This could be an option at installation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommend Syncfusion Essential to other development businesses. It cuts down on development time, its libraries are very stable and its support is second to none.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been using it to generate word documents for my invoices and for its UI features. I found that its able to cut down on my development time, and I can develop items with features that I wouldn't be able to otherwise.

"Love the free Licence"

What do you like best?

We use Syncfusion Essential Studio on the free Community Licence for Cross-Platform App Development with Xamarin Forms. The free Licence includes all features and the customer service was not biased either. In geneal Customer Service was quick and helpful.

The Product itself works beautifully and allowed us to create mighty and neat graphs and pdfs. It is perfectly suited for beginners as the Documentation is detailed and easy to follow.

It works surprisingly well on all platforms (iOS, Android and UWP) with a minimum amount of platform-specific code. As Xamarin Forms is quite new, Syncfusion is still adding a ton of new features and updating constantly

What do you dislike?

All the updates have some negative aspects as well. While they worked fine most of the time, one update suddenly crashed the entire charts for no apparent reason.

Some features are missing in UWP, they could try to keep all platforms on the same level.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating Charts and Pdfs in App.

It supports cross-platform and C# features like Data-BInding and therefore saved us looking for platform solutions respectivly

"Great components for big ERP applications"

What do you like best?

Lots and lots of components with meaningful extensions and features. We're especially using edit controls, grid grouping grid, xlsio, docio and diagramming controls but everything so far has been stable. Support is responsive i polite with frequent code examples for a query.

What do you dislike?

They have made many, many extensions to their controls probably listening user needs. Sometimes it's difficult to find a feature or use it without the help of their support. This mostly pertains to grid grouping control which is really complex.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're providing standardised and feature rich GUI to our users who are using our software on daily basis in their workplace. Syncfusion components have saved a lot of extra programming and testing costs since they had extra features which we wanted to provide our users.

"Brings the functional and visual standard of a web project to timeless excellence."

What do you like best?

The pluggability of apps in MVC 5, using Razor engine to view cshtml views.

It improves the user experience, giving good reaction/upload/download speeds of pages (determined by your network speed).

The software is well documented for typical uses of their components.

Good support.

What do you dislike?

When having to customize on a deep level, for example editing on a grid with single line edit mode from code behind, documentation is slim at best, their saving grace then comes from their support tickets.

When you are customizing on a deep level, you need to familiarize yourself with jQuery and Javascript for a proper solution that gives good user experience, at least there is good documentation for their javascript and jQuery API.

Takes a while for new employees to get used to using Syncfusion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure your developers are all on the same version of Syncfusion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A visual standard is introduced, along with maintainability of same code by different coders.

"Controls for asp. Net"

What do you like best?

The controls provided us with a great set of nice tools/features and increased team productivity with a great end-user experience

We used the software in Web and Mobile development which allowed us to design a consistent experience between different parts of the solution

What do you dislike?

.I think overall the solution is good, and nothing was bad about it

Recommendations to others considering the product

ASP.NET web controls provides great basic features Filter, Sorting, and Data grouping which can save a lot of time of team productivity

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The software allows software developers to focus on delivery of business application with great end-user experience without wasting the time of writing code to implement basic functionality of the web controls like gridviews sorting, filter, paging. but to focus on business requirements

"A lot of good options, but may be overkill for some requirements"

What do you like best?

I like all the tools available, and it is some what easy to implement on projects.

What do you dislike?

Documentation is not that good.

Sometimes it is an overkill, it is too big for what's needed sometimes.

Other tools are lightweight and can do some of the things done by syncfusion (I used essential javascript 1 only)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need many of the options they have, it may be a good fit for you. It is overall good, but in my case we had a few requierements that could be met by other free tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed an admin tool to customize options for the website so we needed controls to do so.

"Excellent product and excellent developer service"

What do you like best?

As a developer, I think what I like most is the responsiveness, clarity in answers and follow up procedures regarding support tickets. This is critical in order to be able to ship one's product.

Now, the product itself is excellent; from design to end-user experience.

The documentation is very good. Could use a bit more details and/or example sometimes but it is much, much better than many other suites' documentation that I have seen around.

What do you dislike?

Installation time, even though it has gotten faster with time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The product has helped me to build better looking applications with less effort. Even though the apps we have written could work just fine without these controls, having them have enabled us to ship a much better looking and easier to use product and in a quicker manner as well.

"Wish we never started using syncfusion"

What do you like best?

Controls are nice looking and there is a large selection

What do you dislike?

Controls riddled with bugs

Overpriced

Forced to waste time creating examples to indicate a fault in the controls, or to test after a patch is released.

Private patches are released and not rolled into a release for a long time, makes if very difficult to use NuGet and to manage versions

Takes at least 24 hours for a response from anyone, then once they find the bug it can take weeks for a patch. If it takes more than one response for support to find the bug it can take days as each response takes 24 hours.

Online documentation is very poor and incomplete

Controls are overloaded and cause application slowdowns

Recommendations to others considering the product

Find another control provider

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we use a few controls in a piece of software given to customers for free for configuring one of our products.

No benefits from syncfusion, could have used other controls for less and wasted far less development time.

"Super product with Community License option"

What do you like best?

I've been searching for a web grid with filtering, paging and sorting on server side. Every component I found was either expensive or same functionality was missing. Finally I found Syncfusion. As I'm one person company I could use it even in commercial product thanks Community License. I got not only great grid for free, but a whole package of very nice controls.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes you have to search thoroughly support forum to find solution which does not seem so unusual. But after all it's a great product and great support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The product helped me to build web app with responsive controls having similar look and feel. I didn't need to search for individual controls.

"Asp.net Core Essential Components are getting there"

What do you like best?

the architecture was designed beautifully. i love the way the data mangers are used client side and server side.

What do you dislike?

Asp.net Core is still young and new so i have found a couple bugs in this product but its to be expected.

i don't like the documentation. the examples are just images and not the actual use of the product.

The documentation is hard to follow or navigate to related topics. example if i need some Js help with a Asp.net core component i have to go to the Js doc page even though it is very closely related. The Fact there there is a JS doc page and a JS Api page is very annoying and trying to find the JS Api page is not trivial to find

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

real time data reporting. it had also helped us realizes places we need to change the way we collect/process data.

"Excellent toolkit that makes my software shine."

What do you like best?

The controls I use are easy to work with. It reduce the development cycle time and improves both productivity and efficiency.

What do you dislike?

The toolkit has become large which requires more time for updating when a new version is available. It also affect the loading time of VS.NET. When the number of controls increases then they need to be grouped in more subgroups for easier navigation. That's also true for the documentation.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Te Enterprise Edition is quite large package. If You don't need everything then select part(s) of it. It will save You money and time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating user-friendly UI-applications for the desktop.

Productivity and efficiency reduce the development time frame which has a positive effect on pricing the solutions, lower the price bids.

"Syncfusion MVC for the JS averter"

What do you like best?

Nice controls, many can be rendered completely from code behind.

Support answers withing 24 hours, which is OK for me given the time zones.

Support produces sample apps.

What do you dislike?

Samples and support places too much (for me) emphasis on the Razor side.

Not easy to find things in docs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be prepared for frantic searches in docs. But it's free for small companies. The Diagram control is outstanding.

Support is responsive, sometimes superficial.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Document network and document metadata display.

Could produce my first web pages almost completely from C#, with minimal JS.

Nice graph diagram.

"Excellent User Controls and Customer Service"

What do you like best?

The controls are excellent, well document, and come with plenty of samples to get you started. The customer support is the best I have experienced. If you get stuck or need a sample project for a specific problem, they will provide one. If you find bugs in their software, they make sure they provide a patch, and roll that patch into future releases. And they are open to you suggesting new controls and features.

What do you dislike?

There is absolutely nothing that I dislike about the product or service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My personal is advice is to try them. Especially if you are an indie developer just starting out. Their community offerings are so generous, and they provide excellent support. If you are a large business with a decent IT Budget, then I would recommend you give serious consideration to Syncfusion before considering other vendors.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were using a very slow PDF generator and viewer for a specific project. This was unacceptable to the business and our customers. Other third-party PDF viewers were lacking in certain features that were required. The PDF viewer for WinForms from Syncfusion solved all our issues. Reports are now very quick, and our customers are happy with the result.

"Straightforward, Well documented, Great Support"

What do you like best?

As I wrote in the title, the thing I like most is that the use of the component is straightforward, the documentation is helpful, you can use a new complex component in a couple of hours, and if you don't find a sample for solving a problem, you ask and the support gives you an how to with a working sample. They are very open to suggestion for improvement and always ready when you find a bug.

That is exactly what I'm expecting from a supplier of components.

What do you dislike?

There is no thing I dislike in Syncfusion suites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My main field of development is Data management both to prepare databases for analysis using BI and Predictive analytic Tools and to create User interfaces to input data or consume large data amounts for search and analysis made by human beings.

"Syncfusion controls are the best!"

What do you like best?

The controls give so much more to applications when you are looking for a bit extra. I particularly like the sfDataGrid control with the features of filtering and grouping. The samples are very helpful.

The support is excellent - help is always given within 24 hours and they will go the extra mile to help you solve a problem.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. Syncfusion act fast to fix bugs once they are aware of them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The controls are excellent and provide all you need when the normal VS controls are not enough.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Binding of controls has been easier since using Syncfusion. The examples are a great help and the support is excellent.

I used to integrate others comercial tolos like DevExpress, Telerik, etc. during last 10 years. Now I'm working on my own and fortunatly I found Syncfusion, especially for web and mobile development it had been a great tool for accelerate my software development.

What do you dislike?

It might be ignoramce, in some cases is slow to deploy on MVC Web projects, I'll keep checking.

Follow DevOps path like others software vendors. I did not remember to see news about DevOps + Syncfusion on IT magazines like SD Times.

"A full suite of controls that enhance the UI experience"

What do you like best?

Essential Studio is the go-to spot for enhanced controls that make the UI experience for your user. From the web to desktop to mobile, Essential Studio has you covered. With their Direct-Trac support system and different licensing options, you have a partner that will be in it for the long run.

What do you dislike?

With so many controls, it tough sometimes to know everything that is available and how a control that is developed can save you time by implementing it instead of starting from scratch.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our applications require smart, innovative and intuitive controls. Syncfusion Essential Studio delivers. From Desktop docking manager, editing controls and web dashboards, Essential Studio has it all.

"No Need to Reinvent the Wheel"

What do you like best?

With Syncfusion’s JavaScript suite, we have a lot of components ready to use; each component offer some events to bind and customize its behaviour.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the different language can rapresent a barrer.

The demos and the documentation sometimes is messy and not clear enough. Sometimes there is simply one sentence with the property's name and a brief description.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Syncfusion’s JavaScript suite, we could use business-ready, updated web and mobile UI components. These days, it’s impossible, time and money-wise, to think about writing complex UI web-mobile plugins yourself.

"Perfect All-in-One Components for System Development "

What do you like best?

All controls in all framework, are easy to use and integrated in one enterprise studio side by side with Visual Studio.

What do you dislike?

All seems fine, all documentation is ready to go, the support team always ready to help.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In addition to the expansive feature set of each control, the built-in themes proved to be a great hidden value that helped make the application more visually appealing and user friendly.

Building such features from scratch would have cost him valuable development time. The Syncfusion support team also helped the programmer save time by answering his questions quickly and fully with detailed examples.

By using Syncfusion components, the programmer was able to build a professional, modern enterprise

"A surprisingly excellent and feature complete set"

What do you like best?

Best part is that you have absolutely every widget possible in this set, they just work, and they integrate with every framework under the sun. Oh, and you get source code to debug places where the documentation might fail you.

What do you dislike?

Data integration with Java application servers is done through generic json, and features like paging and sorting on the server must be implemented by the developer. In Microsoft environments, this is standard. however, it's not hard to implement, and I'm sure they'll add it soon.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just try it and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. Any of the major frameworks from JS+jQuery, Reactive, Angular, Aurora, etc is supported, and the source code makes it easy to figure out things you might need that the documentation (which is extensive) might not cover.

On the application server side, if you use Microsoft, you're golden. If you use Java (Spring Boot in our case) we had to do some implementing for the parameters sent by the complex controls like grids asking for sort, filter, etc. The data adapter source code told me everything I needed, so it was only a few hours. By the time you read this, it might not even be an issue any longer.

Overall, a very pleasant surprise in a sea of bug-ridden frameworks and implementations.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My use has been for Web-based (HTML5+Javascript) rich GUI systems - Windows Forms-like that are one web page and contain Excel and Word widgets along with the Visio like flowcharting module. This is the only company I found that implements them correctly and the controls just work.

"Accelerate your development with Xamarin. Forms"

What do you like best?

It contains many components that are complex to develop for Xamarin forms ready to use.

The components are configured individually, so you do not need to add any unnecessary Mb to the application.

Another point in favor is that you can test the components before you buy downloading the app from Google Play.

What do you dislike?

Once customization is needed for behavior, it may become problematic.

What do you like best?

Two things: platforms coverage and support. Support people answer timely and very well. The wide range of supported platforms makes this the best accelerator on the market as for now.

What do you dislike?

As many other companies also Syncfusion is compromising quality by moving too much offshore, and it shows.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I did try many competitors... none can really compare as overall offering: don't waste your time... Syncfusion is what you want.
