Entrinsik Informer Review
Easy access to all of my data


Valuable Features

The ability to create run time computed columns is one of the best features in informer. Being able to manipulate data ad hoc as necessary without making changes to our ERP database is incredibly helpful.

Improvements to My Organization

Our organization uses Informer extensively. Because of the easily understandable UI, end users are able to retrieve their own data with little or no IT support. The ability to schedule and deliver reports has also helped to streamline processes by eliminating the need for users to pass information along manually.

Room for Improvement

I would like to see further development on customizability options in the dashboard module. Geomapping and color selection parameters are two areas that lack at the moment.

Previous Solutions

Previous reporting was handled at the database level via a terminal emulator. Informer was a much easier tool for end users to work with.

Initial Setup

I was not involved in the initial set up of the product.

Implementation Team

We implemented in house.

Other Advice

In my experience Informer is a powerful tool that can be used in a variety of ways to allow end users to get easy access to their data.
