We’re deeply frustrated by the ongoing software issues that are negatively impacting our business. The lack of prompt support, with replies taking up to three days without any resolution, only adds to our challenges. The absence of a live chat feature further exacerbates our dissatisfaction, leaving us feeling neglected and hindered in our operations.
