Overall Satisfaction with Synoptix

The product we are using is called Synoptixs and it is a report writing tool. It is used by the accounting office but reports are shared throughout the college. We installed Synoptix during our year end audit taking precious time for a 3 day training. We walked out of the training with actual reports we needed for the audit and with the tools to create reports on the fly. I use Synoptix almost as much as I use Excel. I can create budget to actual comparatives spanning many years in just a few minutes. I can disseminate these reports quickly and easily and provide my end user transaction level detail with a click. I have never worked with a more user friendly report writer.
  • Allows us to create reports that used to take programmers to do. Can run them much quicker and gain access to information in our general ledger at any time.
  • Synoptixs is formatted like Excel but does not have the capabilities of Excel in many cases. Does limit what I can do to manipulate the data.
  • Tough to determine but can get answers for management to make timely decisions.
Doesn't have all the capabilities of some other report writers but is much more affordable and provides us with what we need.
Synoptis is well suited to help build financial reports and get information out to departments. Once they are created, they can be scheduled to run every day if needed without any further work on anyone's part
