Overall Satisfaction

Entrinsik allows our employees to easily create custom reports queried directly from our main databases without needing to wait on MIS. It has a fairly intuitive interface that has drag and drop functionality, allowing them to either a) get the information they need in a timely manner, or b) get enough information down to allow MIS to intervene and turn their thought process and request into a functional report. It's ability to read SQL written reports has allowed us to created custom reports driven by SQL stored procedures, integrate SQL-written functions that reside solely for use within Informer, and link tables via functions.

Overall, the product offers excellent results and is a fantastic value for the price.
  • Simple select queries from a SQL database
  • Process SQL stored procedures and report the results in an automated (scheduled) and useful output
  • Dashboarding capabilities for reports existing in your Informer system
  • Dashboarding functionality and visualizations options need improvement
  • Ability to stop a query from continuing to process on the database server
  • Informer has offered a positive ROI by allowing end users to run reports rather than wait on other departments. This increased production and decreased turnaround time on projects.
Our institution has been an Informer client for many years, and continued to be satisfied with the product and its performance.
Complex visualizations are often best served by exporting the results from Informer into Excel, and creating the dashboard within Excel.
