Feedback

"Implementation of the monitoring system was critical for maintaining the quality of provided services. We have chosen Elecard Boro due to Russian language support and moderate price. It took 2–3 days to install and set up the product, so integration was very easy. The Boro monitoring system is a powerful software solution. It offers a detailed and clear errors layout. I would like to particularly mention a very responsive technical support. We plan to scale up the system in the future to monitor HLS streams."
