    Product(s): Kendo UI by Progress

    A mature UI controls framework, that is visually excellent with low friction development.

    Overall Comment

    KendoUI has proven to be a mature JavaScript UI framework that developers can use with low friction. The documentation and support of the product has been great along with a strong user community. The controls are visually appealing and provide a good user experience. The framework also plays well with other frameworks such as AngularJS and Twitter Bootstrap. It has cut our UI development time by around 40%. KendoUI is the tool our developers like to use.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    The KendoUI website allows you to view all the available controls along with the javascript code to needed to use them. It also lets you make code changes and view the results live. If you are interested, ask the developement team to use the demo version to create a simple proof of concept.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    The features I like most about KendoUI is the fast and low friction of development.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    I would be easier to mange licensing of it was by site instead of per developer.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    I would have purchased the Telerik DevCraft license for our developers as it contains KendoUI, along with many other developer tools.

    Good online knowledgebase, large availabily of code samples and responsive phone support.
