Overall Satisfaction with ThoughtSpot

Very easy to learn and use
We have a large data set that is housed in an old platform that only allows Excel extracts. ThoughtSpot has allowed us to access that data quickly and get insights into our program efficiently.

We use ThoughtSpot to analyze the program coverage of our stores in Channel retail locations, and it allows our non-analytical teams to quickly and efficiently search for complex and sometimes dirty data in a streamlined and easy way.
  • The easy to use UI allowed our teams to get on-boarded to the platform very quickly and let our least BI friendly teams customize reports to their liking.
  • The flexibility of the platform allowed us to reach all levels of our team
  • Quick onboarding process allowed us to move from inception to implementation in a matter of weeks
  • Hard to change a search after inputting, sometimes users need to relearn how to type in a ThoughtSpot manner
  • Would love to allow more capacity for "playing" around with pinboards without changing the existing report
  • We work a lot of photo data, would be interested to see if photos could be incorporated into the platform
  • Our teams were spending hours and almost days on fine-tuning Excel documents to get the numbers they were looking for, now it takes a matter of minutes.
  • Our teams were frustrated with being unable to find the data they were searching for and make decisions based on gut feeling, now we can make data-driven decisions.
Very quick to find the results we're looking for, the onboarding process was almost instantaneous and a lot of users didnt need strict training or onboarding.

For some of the more advanced features there was some necessary follow-up in order to fully understand, but after that using ThoughtSpot these features became quick and easy for our team.
Mostly accurate, seen some issues with the sum aggregation at the bottom of each report
A lot of impact for our sales teams who don’t have a lot of BI experience
Well suited for quick reporting but lacks some of the complexity that Tableau has.
