Overall Satisfaction with Entrinsik Informer

All departments are currently using Informer reporting to report on data, create saved lists for our ERP processes and to upload data to other database systems. Informer reports helps us to address data entry problems in our ERP system.
  • I love the mapping capabilities. Practically no more computed columns needed in Colleague.
  • Calculated columns help to get the desired result you need.
  • It is easy to use. Security set up is also straight forward
  • Functions are great, but knowing what fields you need in your report to populate the function with is difficult. I need to know what they are before I add the function. I actually listed the fields needed in the description of the function.
I have not evaluated any other products. I can only compare it to Colleague Query Builder which was not user-friendly.
The Informer product is a great reporting tool. The upgrades are seamless, the cost is right, and the support team is great!
For Colleague clients, mapping the data and eliminating the creation of computed columns in Colleague is a big plus. It's a great product for unidata clients. I haven't had the chance to work with SQL. I am hoping to get Ellucian Recruiter added as a datasource.
