Roambi ES - Not Your Father's TPS Reports

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Report templates that are easy to learn, use, update and maintain.
  • Great looking reports that stay up-to-date with what Apple is producing. When Apple rolled out the new look and feel to their iOS7 release, Roambi created a brand new set of reports within two weeks to go along with the iOS7 changes.
  • Seamless integration with our existing BI environment, SAP Business Objects XI, 3.1. This drastically reduced the time from purchase to client-ready roll out from months to weeks.
  • These reports were designed specifically for mobile devices, however a frequent request that we are unable to fulfill is that clients would like to share the complete functionality of these reports with someone via an internet-based report. We can take a screenshot that can be put into a presentation, we can e-mail a link to the report to view on another iOS device, but it cannot be shared with someone on a desktop or laptop. Roambi does provide something to be viewed, but it is based a narrow, iPhone view which can only be used for certain reports.
  • Roambi currently only works on iOS devices. There are plans for Android and Windows Mobile versions, however those are not yet available.

Roambi: mobilize, engage and start gathering knowledge

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Mobilization of reports; after all it primarily remains a mobile reporting solution.
  • Previous investments in reporting solutions remain valued. Roambi acts as an additional layer on top of your existing infrastructure, leveraging existing reports in a first phase. Then, you can start collecting data for new reports you might design.
  • The added interactivity and intuitivity drives people to use the reports more frequently and more efficiently. Now, when common business questions need answers, Roambi is usually able to provide answers in seconds.
  • Maintaining the Flow documents created with Roambi (magazines and presentations) requires more effort. While automating traditional reports works without problems, publications from Flow are a bigger task.
  • Not yet available on devices other than iOS. However, Android is due to be released this year; this is one of the most expected innovations.

Pros and Cons

  • Very intuitive user interface that exploits the touch capabilities of tablets and smartphones very well.
  • Offline capability - extremely helpful for sales people that can not always be online.
  • Integration with existing BI solutions - almost all of our clients have already a BI Infrastructure. Roambi integrates very well.
  • Availability on Android and Windows Platforms would be good.

Roambi Lite - Lite on pain not in features!

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Quick and precise synchronization of information between the front end and back end: I have extensively updated offline excel templates with information and upon uploading to Roambi I could see that no information had been lost and the synchronization process itself is quite speedy and precise.
  • Plenty of options to customize representation of data on the front end: I have played around with lots of available options to represent raw data in an attractive and easy to read manner. There is always an option available to suit my needs irrespective of the dimensions or the dept of data that I am trying to represent.
  • Well designed and implemented app for idevices: The app itself is very well designed and of a very high aesthetic value. I am especially impressed with the performance of the app.
  • Easy to learn and use: The whole Roambi layout (esp. Roambi Lite), back end templates and front end apps are very easy to learn and use. There are no complicated steps and the representation or layout you want can always be achieved with some tinkering.
  • The system that performs the rendering of data to the front-end can be improved to intelligently read the back end data template or at least the layout. Inserting new rows/columns of data completely messes up the rendering on the front end and the process of re-selecting information to ensure proper rendering is a very tedious one.
  • Also, Roambi should have the capability to analyse information in formats other than excel such as word, ppts and/or pdfs. I found the lack of this capability a major hurdle because each time I had to export information into excel to render into a template.

BI presentation layer for mobile

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Template-driven, meaning it's fast to deploy and therefore it costs far less than traditional BI tools to roll out
  • Offline capabilities far outperform standard BI tools that have been pushed to mobile devices
  • Publishing capabilities of Roambi Flow are amazing: think of never printing a sales report, board pack, finance report, power point etc and being able to embed data into that report or presentation. Our customers find this feature invaluable
  • Android
