Overall Satisfaction

We use Entrinsik Informer across our entire organization. From Business office to Student services to Faculty. Informer allows us to get insight into our data and helps us understand the data.
  • Informer is very user friendly
  • Informer works with multiple databases
  • Informer has great technical support
  • For the most part Informer does everything you need, I would like to see a little more dashboard features within the product
  • THE ROI has been great- This product does what it is suppose to do. We could not be effective without it
We have used Unidata QB and Business Objects in the past. Our problems with Query Builder were that we did not have the ability to report from multiple files easily. A lot if IT time was spent on building computed columns to get data in one location. This went away with Informer.

With Business Objects we did not have a dedicated BO administrator that was trained in Business Objects. the cost of Business Objects was high and required a conversion of the data to a data warehouse that needed regular updating (nightly). With Informer we get nearly the same results at a lower cost and with little training for end-users and It staff alike.
Entrinsik is a great company to work with. The product has improved our workflow and is well liked by our end-users. The biggest reason we will renew is that we get a lot of return on our investment.
If you have data that is in a database and you want to get to that data and understand it, Informer is the product for you. We use it against our Unidata database as well as SQL databases. It brings a concise picture into what we are doing as an organization.
