Entrinsik Informer Review
Gives live feed for reporting, data is more accurate, once main report is written it can be used in various ways.
What is most valuable?
I work in the Budgeting office and am a financial report writer. I have been able to write transactional reports as well as budget to actual summary reports. I have them set up in a way that when someone asks me for something, I can pull the data out quickly and easily to match their purposes. Once the reports are written it can be molded for many different scenarios. Once I became more familiar with the data and Java Script, I was able to build very nice reports. This saves valuable time building the reports in Excel from pieces of data. I can get the data in one sheet and work from there.
How has it helped my organization?
I can provide more timely reports for all levels of the college.
What needs improvement?
You have to know Java scripting for getting over hurdles. I wish it was more user friendly out of the box. It is geared towards Student Data. It took awhile to build a good Financial Reporting tool.
For how long have I used the solution?
What was my experience with deployment of the solution?
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
How are customer service and technical support?
Always available for questions. The blog is very helpful. Technical Support
Good. I get answers quickly.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
I used a combination of downloads with Excel. It was very time consuming and error prone. I still used Excel for many things, but my data behind it is much more solid.
Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
