Overall Satisfaction with Toad Data Point

We use Toad Data Point to move data across various systems. We move data to NutriKids, TransFinder and Destiny every day. We use it also as a data auditing tool. It is our number one query writing tool, which is easy to use because of the graphical interface. It has improved our day-to-day operations with data analysis.
  • Ease of use. It is a very easy product to use without any particular training.
  • Multiple data source connection. It easily connects to multiple data sources which allows you to use different data sources to run reports.
  • Seamless application. Once you set everything up-- whether it is an FTP or export of data-- you can set it and forget it!
  • Training. I think they should offer some basic training, which is all that was needed.
  • Licensing. We had to purchase a couple of copies for two machines. I am not sure if anything can be done about that.
  • Vender Expos. Have not heard of them being at any national conferences.
Toad give me more flexibility. Being able to utilize FTP to send data and receive files from external systems is wonderful. Using the automation tool to run different database, file, and system activities has made my day-to-day functions easy. Being able to schedule tasks right from the software has also made thing easy.
I would certainly recommend it in conjunction with our student information system, PowerSchool. Since our student information system does not allow updates from an ODBC connect, there is no way of doing a mass update to data incorrectly. Being able to see the table and easily do joins has made me more efficient when writing sql statements.
