Overall Satisfaction with TARGIT

TARGIT is used across our organization by Finance, Inventory Control, Marketing, Sales and others. It's used for a variety of reports. In my department, it's primarily used for sales reporting and analysis, and distributor business reviews. TARGIT addresses our need for a robust reporting system. We use ROSS ERP, and the reporting out of ROSS is not sufficient. We also use Sales Discovery System for basic sales reporting, however, the options are limited. I would compare TARGIT to SAP Business Warehouse, and Crystal Reporting. The program, though robust, is simple enough for the most basic user with minimal introduction and training.

Overall, TARGIT is a valuable tool, and more and more associates are realizing this every day. It's become our standard for sales reporting. I would recommend the software for use at other companies.
  • Quick start-up and report turnaround time.
  • Easy drag and drop capabilities as well as user friendly command options.
  • Ability to share reports among other users making it easy to use an already created report and simply changing the criteria to suit your own needs.
  • Ability to save a base report that can be modified as needed repeatedly, instead of recreating from scratch.
  • Easy visual for final layout.
  • Ability to run multiple reports within one screen without jumping around.
  • Graphing tools are not easy to work with.
  • Comparisons and advance calculations are not user friendly or intuitive. Easier to export to Excel and create the calculations there.
  • Confined to just the dimensions and measures already made available by IT. To add more, it requires IT support.
  • Interactive dashboard capabilities are lacking.
  • There are not many TARGIT experts within our company. Utilizing functionality beyond the basics becomes difficult because of this.
  • It is not always clear what the the dimension or measure represents. There should be a quick description of what the dimension/measure is.
  • Automatic updates/sending of reports doesn't work well.
  • SAP,Crystal Reports
TARGIT is as user friendly as SAP BW, and more user friendly than Crystal Reports. The downside of both TARGIT and BW is that you're limited to the data points provided by IT.
I would continue to use TARGIT as long as it is made available to me. This company is the first that I've worked at the uses TARGIT, but I would be interested in working with it at different companies as well.
  • Increased efficiency
  • Better customer service (specifically to internal customers)
  • Easier, more robust view of where sales really stand
Overall, TARGIT is a valuable tool, and more and more associates are realizing this every day. It's become our standard for sales reporting. I would recommend the software for use at other companies, and I often encourage fellow associates to gain access and basic training.
