For someone like me, who had no real experience in using BI tools before, datapine suits quite well. Most of the features I was able to explore on my own, and their support was always really helpful (as well as the tutorials). In general, I was most impressed from their dashboard features. If you look for a software with detailed statistical analysis options, you maybe need to take another (additional) tool. My main use-case was the visualization and reporting of the analysis results, not the statistical analysis itself. This usually was done before with SPSS.

This is well suited to someone (or a team) who are technically minded and have a dataset that they need to be able to use in many ways. It's less appropriate for a team who isn't technically minded and/or don't have the data they need to manipulate. It would be useful for things that you could use a database or spreadsheet for such as CRM, Advertising database, Business tracking, Health tracking etc.

Cons

datapine

  • Some advanced functions need SQL knowledge.

Grist

  • Making the user permissions more obvious on how to use them - They are highly adaptable, but hard to understand how to use them
  • Small changes such as auto colouring the choices/toggles options and being able to edit them once set.
  • Being able to copy the formatting from one column to the next

I still have subscriptions to both of the above and use them sporadically. Infinity is less user friendly in terms of copying data and moving around the tables, entering data using the keyboard only as I tend to do on a spreadsheet. For this reason, I tended to move across to Stackby prior to using Grist instead of using Infinity. Stackby works well, and has some features that are better than Grist (Predominantly the powerups that I use, and integrations that I don't). However, Grist is still a level above in manipulation of data using python (or Excel functions too), the ability to use widgets and the table duplicated in a seperate page.

Return on Investment

Grist

  • It's saved a lot of time in both creating an advertising database and managing it week to week effectively. I had previously created in others that haven't worked, and this does, saving me a good 1 hour weekly, and 5 hours or more each time I had problems with the last ones
  • Being able to stay on track with this has meant I'm following up at the right time (advertisers) and keeping a professional manner and not losing business due to missed communication
  • Saving me $ from buying a program like Access (or Airtable monthly) and then the learning curve that that has. This has a much easier learning curve to say the least.
