Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Joining large datasets from your company's ERP or other internal systems is a great use case for Sigma. This will allow people within the company to analyze historical trends in the data and inform the forecast. I'd also recommend using Sigma to create visual dashboards for higher-level executives. This tool seems to have the best performance when it comes to large datasets. I don't think Sigma is in the position to replace ad-hoc analysis done in Excel that requires the maximum level of flexibility with the ability to modify formulas easily on the fly. The formulas in Excel are also much more extensive and are much better for sensitivity analysis.

Pros

9 Spokes

  • Grouping several apps in one place for easy viewing.
  • Clean dashboard interface that looks uncluttered when viewing several apps at once.
  • Setting up the apps is a breeze when the platform supports them.

Sigma

  • Easy to learn but with enough depth to appeal to more advanced BI users.
  • Constantly updating and improving the tool.
  • The parameter and filter functionality is on point. It makes creating enterprise quality reporting a breeze for our team.
  • The SQL writer is very straight forward and the fact you can write directly in SQL gives Sigma a huge leg up on other BI tools that use their own languages.

Cons

9 Spokes

  • Integration with apps that are listed. Some of them are not supported yet and it seems the wait is taking longer than I'd like.
  • iPhone support. It would be nice to have this in the app store. Not available as of 04/25/2018.

  • The user interface had at least one big change in the past two years, which was confusing.
  • I would like to be able to create and run report on the fly, instead of having to schedule them.
  • Better navigation using tabs and menus.

Because we are very satisfied with the product and would most likely renew because of the services it provides. It is a tool that you bring into your organization and let it change the way you analyze your data, present your data and share you date within the Respective teams

It depends, it loads quickly for smaller dashboards but when loading larger amounts of data it takes more time to do so

Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

Support team is helpful in answering questions and providing help with using the UI. There are knowledgeable people within the support team.There are also good online support tools. There are significant community support resources available.There is however lack of a live support. It would be useful to have live phone number or chat to use.

Alternatives Considered

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

Sigma is the first software that I have used that allows me to easily access data tables. I do not have other experience with similar software, but I do like the fact that Sigma doesn't require extensive SQL knowledge. I am not sure if other similar software will have that capability and ease of use.
