This technology is open source so while the core team is responsive, there is not an option to get immediate support for issues other than through open source channels. That said, members of the core team do respond well when asked to help.
Be willing to adopt to a quickly evolving product.
The ability for my team to get going quickly and iterate quickly.
The debugging tools are a work in progress.
This is an open source product with no paid support, but the core team is responsive to issues.

Progress' NativeScript by Telerik is combined with the Telerik Platform allowed us to build cross-platform apps for iOS and Android quickly. We chose NativeScript because it is an innovative and performant approach for delivering native cross-platform apps without the hassle of learning iOS, Swift, or Android. The Telerik Platform helped us provide an agile, feedback-driven testing process to end users located in geographically-disperse areas. Our development team was able to make code changes and push the updated software versions to testers/project stakeholders in minutes. This allowed us to focus our discussion around the working software instead of features the business hadn't seen yet. The key for us was a short turn-around cycle. We literally would turn around changes to the mobile app in the middle of a meeting to reflect a new idea or concept, and each stakeholder could see the results on their personal mobile device.
I like that I can teach new developers how to write native mobile apps for iOS and Android in about a day. This allows us to respond quickly to demand for new apps.
I still dislike needing a Mac to get iOS apps compiled for NativeScript, but I beleive there is a roadmap for providing a "cloud build" for iOS apps. Setup/installation of NativeScript is difficult for first-timers, but I believe this is also being addressed.
At the time, the story for NativeScript and Teleirk Platform was new, and the Platform didn't support NativeScript fully; however, this has been addressed and improved since we initially rolled-out our solution.
We would like to incorporate more mobile app analytics into the solution to help us understand what features are being used and how often. We would also include additional automation in our processes.
Telerik/Progress continues to have excellent support for their products and services.

Great toolset for all our enterprise needs.
Design based on needs and utilization.
Innovative and quick to market about new controls and support for the latest platform.
Support to include phone calls for emergency situation and reduce time for email support to few hrs instead of 1 day
UI/UX needs to be thought through but won't change anything on our tool stack from Telerik.
Extremely happy with the service and support provided, however the only aspect for improvement would be to make the support time shorter than 1 business day.
