    Our alcatel omnivista management program for the phone system.

    java based, unintuitive piece of rubbish, constant crashes and cryptic errors.

    Currently CrazyTalk 5 Pro.

    It requires an internet connection during install, a separate license key per station, and then their blasted install validation .DLL crashes and removes the product.

    Six days later and their tech support are still blaming the PC / OS install even though I've tried this on different PC's.

    Haha, Mediator, Serif....we have all of these. Our problem is our Head of IT goes on training courses and the what not and sees software that looks great....then she purchases it. Funnily enough this is how we've ended up with a Mac Mini and a Macbook in our office.


    OOOO shiny...
