What do current MISTAR-Q users have to say about us?

Q doesn’t always get the respect or appreciation it deserves because some may consider it a ‘niche’ product. In that way, it’s kind of like a Tesla; you won’t see a dealership on every corner or car commercials around the holidays, but there’s an incredible amount of tech capability and adaptive-ness in the system that you don’t necessarily recognize at first glance. The functionality of Q is actually very robust and the constant updates and enhancements – which are direct responses to our needs as users – allow it to keep getting better at a faster pace than many of the better-known competitors. You can feel the value placed on customer input in the user experience with Q – instead of feeling like you need to modify all of your processes to work around the system!
