Catalyst has amazing features, especially with Salesforce and Snowflake integrations. In addition to the amazing features, the service level is fantastic. I never wait more than a day to get an answer back on items I have questions with. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Catalyst's UI/UX is excellent, it is easy to navigate in the platform and find the data you need, it is simply to create different team views and layouts, and its very inuitive with pulling and pushing data to Salesforce Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like how Catalyst acts as a plyable central hub where myself and my CSM counterparts can keep updated notes, assign tasks, and be on the same page with everything happening on our client accounts. This is what I wish Salesforce could do, but the SFDC usability is so clunky, Catalyst fills that void for us Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

It does not sync with Salesforce very quickly and oftentimes I can't add a contact to a call I just had because they haven't been in our system long enough. Also I have to manually sync calls to SF more than I'd like. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I still find myself wanting to do my own account view manipulation, remove unnecessary columns, etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Right now, it feels like you can use it however you like and it is a bit overwhelming Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

That we can share the detailed programs with the parents and other staff. I can pull graphs and reports to send to insurance. Very informed programs that is right there at your fingertips.
- Patrick C.Financial Services
Extremely easy to use. Catalyst has a great interface that allows for easy navigation and use. Reporting is top tier.
- April A.Mental Health Care
System is easy to use. Great shortcuts for tracking data
- Jessica P.Individual & Family Services
Tons of unfixed bugs and crashing problems. Makes your data incorrect and you have to spend hours to fix it. Absolutely horrible customer service and follow up/ follow through. The new app is so bad that we are using the old one and that one has bugs and unfixed issues too. Their response time is awful and they do not give you a date for when they will fix things. You are left being better off going back to paper and pencil. Get a different app before you waste your resources on catalyst!
- Steve S.Education Management
No data integrity. Laughably bad support and up time.
- Tamar B.Hospital & Health Care
The website/app is down and inoperable 40% of the time. The support staff is rarely helpful and the data often does not sync so our data team must manually enter each goal and each target.

In our region, the Cisco 2960-X/XR Series Switch has been standardized in our organization as an access switch. In our building, we have 4 floors. On each floor, we have a rack with 2 to 3 2960-X access switches with 48 ports and 10GB uplinks, all with power over ethernet technology to connect workstations, printers, IP phones and points of access. We have been using it for many years and now have a lot of reliability in this product for its high performance, safety, features, durability, and zero technical problems. Cisco always surprises us in positive ways, so we have chosen to purchase several pieces of equipment from them.

BC Systems began our NIST 800-171 Cybersecurity Assessment in 2020 which is required by all DoD contractors. We hired a local consultant to guide us through the process and address any issues we may face along the way. Our first task was to replace any outdated hardware on our network with more reliable secure equipment. They recommended we purchase several Cisco Catalyst Switches and run new cable for the best outcome. We have been online for months now and are completely satisfied with the improved performance we see on our network. No dropout, which was a big problem on our old network, and no workstation connection issues. I am glad we made the upgrade.
Reliability - No dropout between workstation and server PoE - Useful in many areas of our building where power is lacking Easy to use GUI - For metrics, analysis, and troubleshooting

They work much efficiently on loop avoidance for a layer 2 frame broadcast storm by using an internal STP (Spanning Tree Protocol). It helps my organisation to make frames move in the correct LAN. We are'nt having a big organization , we work in a SOHO (small office home office) and comparatively other vendors switches I prefer to work with the friendly CLI of CISCO catalyst switches. Internal STP and loop avoidance for avoiding the broadcast stormIn STP election, at first, every device in the loop says "I am the root, with this BridgeID". And then the STP election happens to elect the Root Bridge, root ports, blocked ports, designated port (dr), backup dr.VLAN functionality we can create 4096 Virtual LANs in a Switch, which can be used to separate the different departments for an organization.
Avoids the Broadcast Storming using STP (Spanning Tree Protocol) It can Block the vacant port of the Switch using BPDUGuard and PortFast so that the other outsider person cannot sniff into the network. VLAN partitioning , but up to 4096 vlans can be created VTP Virtual Trunking Protocol is used to make a trunk between a Client Switch and a Controller Switch (Cisco Switches), Controller switches make idempotent to a Client Switch and have the count of changes in the Client Switch if any changes made from Controller

We use it at the aggregation level and some access on campus. At the aggregation level, it permits us to have modular aggregation, thanks to stack feature. Moreover, we can mix 1G and 10G devices depending on the environment. At access level, it permits us to have dual power access switches and fiber access port for site security stuff.
Stability over upgrade. Rolling upgrade on stack.
- Peter MckenzieCisco Instructor
We having being using the Catalyst 2960 switches for years. They are very reliable. We use them as part of our CCNA, CCNA Security & CCNP Route course. They provide a "virtual" solution for students who can be on different routed networks.
These switches are EOL but they are still performing well. Sadly the last IOS was 15.2, so there are labs that where they can't be used for in CCNP.
- Verified UserVice-President
We used the Cisco Catalyst switch for our user community switches, allowing workstations, phones, printers, scanners, APs, Cameras, etc., all to be connected, segregated, and stay up.
Cloud management would be nice. Not a fan of the support renewal costs. Kind of a pain to implement. Doesn't always play well with others.

In general each user will find Catalyst to be well worth the effort, time and money. While there are many platforms that can set reviewers to analyze emails and find privileged information, you will be hard pressed to find another program that has been so consistent. Catalyst is dependable and you will love it!
- Zona M.Administration /HR
Our experience has been very positive. We are able to explain it to our staff and they are able to understand how it works. Very smooth and compatible transition for our staff and parents.
- Katie A.Office Manager
I don't have a current alternative for Catalyst at this time, but if I did, I would likely switch to a more consistent, less buggy program.
- Verified Reviewer
Overall my experience has been great. I have not had any complaints from submitters or reviewers about their user experience.
- Morgan M.BCBA
Overall, I am thoroughly disappointed in the lack of progress that app has made over the last five years.
- Steve S.IT Manager
Imagine slowly freezing to death. If you are a ABA professional considering Catalyst RUN AWAY.
