Integration with MS Powerpoint is one of my first recommendations, it is an advance to be able to integrate FactSet with other products to be able to expand the capacity of accounting departments. The scalability of FactSet is amazing and is related to its integration plugins. The ROI achieved through FactSet also continues to motivate me to recommend it.
