They have good support in what they provide. But what they provide is not what is promised. I would stay with them if I can. Be very careful before signing up with them. They are not what they seem in the sales pitches. Be very careful and make sure you test and test before you sign up.

Anytime I needed a report, I ran into issues with this software. We used Yellowfin for a period of months, having switched from Salesforce. I found the reports were difficult to produce, and the data management was okay at best.

Doesn't do much super well. Wish the UI / UX was better and the learning curve can be a bit too much for a piece of software that is relatively easy. Information is often disbursed and leaves a lot of guesswork to be put into the charts. wish there was less manual input from excel
