Interactive scorecard and NetResults: bv-Control for Microsoft Exchange

Every network is unique. This calculator lets you change the weights given to scores from our review to see how this product might be best suited for your needs. Here's how it works: In each category, our reviewers rated this app on a 1-10 basis. These ratings are then multiplied by the percentage weighting, and then added up to give an overall product score. Any score above 9 is considered "world class."

For each category below, assign the percentage weight you think is most appropriate. The percent-o-meter box on the right will keep track of your weightings to let you know when you've reached 100%. When you fill in the last box, hit your enter key, and you'll see how the app rates (along with our final score for comparison).
