Entrinsik Response to Reviewer Feedback

We are thrilled that Entrinsik Informer has become a top rated product on TrustRadius and we remain committed to providing solutions that equip organizations with insights previously seen as too hard or time consuming to obtain. We are proud to receive such positive reviews of Informer for enabling organization-wide data ownership in addition to delivering exceptional ROI, ease of use, robust security, strong reporting capabilities, and highly responsive customer support.

The Informer development team is currently hard at work on the newest version of Informer, currently in Alpha testing and scheduled for release later this year. Informer 5.0 dramatically expands the visual analytical capabilities of Informer while delivering an updated, modern user interface providing a sleek, streamlined, intuitive experience for all customers. The new underlying system architecture dramatically improves upon the usability, speed, and efficiency of the platform and allows for large amounts of data to be brought into the system with high performance. This next generation of Informer will also have a Discover feature where Informer will automatically and intelligently provide visuals to the user based on simple field selections, thereby allowing the user to glean insight into their data seamlessly. In addition, the Entrinsik team will continue to provide updated training materials via an enhanced Informer Support Center including user guides, videos and training classes. Entrinsik will be holding an Informer User Conference (ICON) scheduled for April 2017 in Raleigh, NC. For more information, contact sales at sales@entrinsik.com.
