Analysis of review comments- multiple mentions are contained in parentheses

The reviews listed are a sampling of the available reviews for each product. We attempted to use the same platform for all reviews, but in some cases this was not possible due to not all companies being listed on the same platforms. Some review sites such as G2 have lengthy reviews, while others have very short reviews, making some products look like they have more or fewer issues than other products. It is advisable to keep this in mind as you read the review comments. The following is a summary of the selected reviews. Links to all reviews are located in the spreadsheet.
