This tool has given me the power to convert the data into new analytical applications that give me a transparent idea about working on multiple platforms. This is a cloud-based application that has allowed me to combine my different pages so that a complete progress report is generated. It is playing a perfect, fantastic role in our organization.

Sisense is our system of record for integrating a number of different data feeds (Google Analytics, SalesForce, Call Tracking, Internal Systems). It is used across all of our sales and marketing organization and is used in a variety of ways by different teams. The portability, ability to build data cubes in the tool, and the low learning curve have made it a major gain for the group after transitioning from Looker.

Sisense is used in our organization as an OEM/white-labeled BI platform. We leverage external customer facing users and internal employee users. Each department and user has their own/department dashboards that illustrate KPIs, metrics in real/near-real time. It solves many business problems that deal with Supply Chain. All areas from receiving, production and fulfillment have high-level to granularity data insights at the touch of their fingers for analyze.

Sisense is used across the whole organization, both looking at internal data from our accounting software as well as looking at the aggregate data collected from our software solutions deployed worldwide. For our internal executive and sales team, it addresses visibility into sales numbers and trends. For our product managers, it provides insight into usage of our software and needs that may arise. For external purposes, we provide reporting to our customer base on their personal usage of the system.

It is currently being implemented to replace our organization-wide data warehouse and BI reporting platform. We've initially completed the data migration, and we are starting the build out of all of our organization reports as Sisense dashboards. Secondarily, we are utilizing their API capabilities to serve data to new websites we've recently launched.

We made the decision to try out several dashboard type data services with Sisense being one of them a few years ago. We were using it to put together easy to read and accessible dashboards to display high level information for our senior executives. This became an ad hoc type of request and pulled in data from finance, sales, and security.

We use Sisense across our Business Finance models in the Financial and Accounting departments. We use it to develop and redesign the information stored in our Project Management Software and our ERP systems for the Construction and Real State Field. It gives us the perspective to consolidate everything in a single, easy to manage tool. Sisense reduces the time it takes to obtain complex reports from many different data sources, and controls a variety of formats in one single tool that enhances our BI platform and our internal and external resources delivered to our end clients.

Sisense is being used by a number of areas within our organization.
  • Our board of directors appreciates the ability to present key metrics about our company on a single page. The graphs are easy to understand. The ability to gather information from disparate divisions and present a unified picture saves time and aids decision making.
  • Our division heads use it to get a picture of how their individual divisions are working. The ability to show the data in graphical form with minimal programming allows them to make better decisions for their departments.
  • Our compliance department uses the graphs to quickly find issues within the company. By highlighting outliers from a number of different systems, corrective actions can be taken quickly, eliminating potential legal issues.

Real-time Internal visibility to operations for accounts and executive management, also providing similar visibility directly to clients through OEM license of Sisense. We've become dependent on the operational analytics from Sisense for both assessing the success of recent feature updates and prioritizing new features.

Sisense started being used by a single department and has taken off across multiple departments across the company. Our legacy and newer BI tools struggled with speed to develop and mash up different and large data sets - Sisense has bridged that gap and taken off as a result.

Sisense has been used across multiple businesses within GE, because users enjoy how easy it is to work with it. As part of the SCM main concerns, employee safety and accurate risk and crisis management are the top. We need visual aids to be clear on GED employees and facilities, numbers, locations, and the employees breakdown per function and parent business.

As the premier company for cannabis industry data and insight, delivering fast, accurate, and visually appealing dashboards for our clients is mission critical. Sisense allows us to present data in a visually stunning manner that continually "wows" our clients, with the dashboards seamlessly integrated into our web portal. The ability to add in third party/custom plug ins, as well as community support for the plug-ins makes Sisense very flexible and powerful.

Beyond simply presenting and extracting data, we have implemented interactive dashboards which visualize, but more importantly, analyze and correlate data to track performance and inform decision making. Sisense is a product that simplifies analytics for complex data by letting us prepare and analyze both big and disparate datasets. Sisense handles data preparation for analysis as well as dashboard visualization.

We are using it primarily to track and inform the performance of our employees across the entire university fundraising group.

We use Sisense across many departments within our organization. Primarily by our sales team who uses it to track their KPIs (revenue vs target by rep/department, open AR by rep, current and projected pipeline, etc), as well as our product management team, our purchasing department and our consumer sales / eCommerce team. It helps us give a clear picture of our sales performance at a category or even SKU level and compare that against our target revenue as well as give the margin story. It enables us to ask and answer more complex questions about our dataset.
