Likelihood to Recommend

Entrinsik Informer

Entrinsik Informer is well suited for businesses that need the capability for end-users to create their own reports. It is easy to learn, and users have multiple output formats they could use, so IT would not need to be as involved. Setting up users is quick and simple, so end-users can be up and going in no time

Synoptix

Synoptis is well suited to help build financial reports and get information out to departments. Once they are created, they can be scheduled to run every day if needed without any further work on anyone's part

Pros

  • Informer is pretty user-friendly. When teaching other employees how to use Informer, I typically don't have to repeat any steps or further explain how to do certain tasks because of how user-friendly it is.
  • Reports in Informer are kept in a list that can be filtered by user, specific tags, or even by how recent the report was made or run. This makes it very quick and easy to find and run a specific report.
  • Informer has many options for downloading the report output, including text (txt), comma separated values (csv), and even PDF.

  • Allows us to create reports that used to take programmers to do. Can run them much quicker and gain access to information in our general ledger at any time.

Cons

  • Continued development of the dashboard functionality. Executives want the quick access to their numbers.

  • End point installations are a little confusing for some of our support staff. There's no direct installation wizard.

Entrinsik Informer is a great product that allows us to improve our workflow and is well liked by our end-users. The biggest reason we will renew is that we get a lot of return on our investment.

Usability

Entrinsik Informer8.0
Based on 12 answers
From the perspective of the new user and a seasoned user I would say eight would represent both parties. It presents a 'familiar' interface and easy to navigate display. Tagging is quite nice and allows for organization of reports based on those tags. These have to be monitored like anything else to keep them consistent but provides a better than average means of organizing reports.

Implementation was great. The person implementing was able to take care of the technical as well as training so it was nice to have one person cover all the needs at one time.

Breadth of Deployment

Within my department, we probably have 19 active users. I think there are probably 20 other users across the rest of campus. So probably 40 (ish) out of 700 employees?

Alternatives Considered

No comparison really--Informer's ease of use and Entrinsik's customer support is far superior.

Synoptix is much simpler for our financial group to create reports and parse data.

Collaboration and Sharing

Based on 12 answers
This is one of the strength's of the product. End Users can determine where they share data; and where they do not. The new "Burst Email" functionality has made a lot of users quite Happy!

Data Integration

Entrinsik Informer8.1
Based on 12 answers
The enhanced usability of the dashboards with multiple datasources, like Google Docs has helped; the ability to use the underlying reporting tool on Google Docs would be used if it were available. Otherwise, we have connected SQL and UniData databases with ease.
