Hi Alexander,
I used Ilya's tool this year for first time and I was limited by some functionalities, but I survived.

In my opinion a lot of problems are generated by operational problems (server availability and delays) which are really minor problems in my opinion.

I used other tools in the past and had similar problems because the hosting solution did not assure the scalability and the resources were limited.

I really suggest to focus in a singles solution instead of looking in alternatives.

Any software, even if good, can have problem if hosted in a limited hosting provider.

FYI I started anytime a trial round to check the configuration and afterwards a valid round as soon I was sure to set correctly any configuration. This is a workaround but a workaround is needed in any critical mission.

If a selection is run in the last days, we are in this case in a mission critical situation, and the tool cannot assure to solve any kind of problems.

I will be sure that Ilya will set a tool and will assure a good level of service.

Kind regards
