Overall Satisfaction with Sisense

We will eventually role out SiSense for all business units to manage KPIS. Initially we are starting with the senior leadership team's needs for sales and product insights.
  • Intuitive GUI.
  • Integrate many different types of data sources.
  • Quick dashboard results.
  • Less reliant on IT support; we were under the impression we would not need to have a developer but it is necessary for back end connections.
Lower cost; easier front end user interface
Connecting to our ERP was very time consuming, required development, and lots of SQL to get the correct time frames incorporated.
We haven't gotten there yet. Still working to create an interactive dashboard.
Sisense is well suited when multiple applications need to be connected for new insights.

Yes - Initial on boarding. Test data dashboard creation. Production data dashboard creation.
