  • It's free trial helps us to find drawbacks and find the exact solution for them.
  • I never faced any difficulty in shifting my data from the previous cloud while implementing this software, thus it is very easy to install and get started.
  • Its cost should be reduced.

  • We are in the early stages of implementation, but there has been a positive impact in the visibility to data in real time. We are operating with a four hour refresh so the sales managers get to see data as it happens during the day.
  • The project has allowed us to look at our ERP data in a different way. It has made a positive impact in the way we are standardizing and cleaning up the source data to make it more accurate for our end users.

  • Report development time is reduced from 2~3 days to 2~3 hours.
  • Report querying time is improved from 0.5~10 mins to 2~30 seconds.
  • A 2-staff team delivers 10 times the BI output that we did on the old system.
  • We were able to deliver BI and data analysis for all business functions instead of a very limited group of users

  • I don't have specific numbers back from the customer where we deployed the product. However, I know that they used it daily to track their product shipments and machine efficiencies. I would say it did the job we deployed it to do and did it effectively.
