We are a small IT company that was looking for a BI tool in order to eliminate the usage of Excel as the reporting tool in our organization. For a company having business users and decision makers in different time zones and different offices, Necto provided a great solution.
The Social collaboration built in Necto helped with interactions among business users while viewing a single work board. The work boards are collaborative, dynamic and suggestive. The recommendation engine is the most interesting piece as it suggests relevant work boards based on a user's usage.
The work boards are a great way to provide the management a clear, concise, one source of truth and progress of business in one snapshot. The drill down capabilities allow the business users to analyze and gain insights. It lets business users spend more time on analyzing data rather than collecting and creating reports.
The feature to find people and chat with the concerned user right from the report window adds a great value and reduces the pain of emails going back and forth among users.
Cause and effect is a nice feature to have in order to do a first level of analysis. The ability to find exceptions and provide various insights is a great feature to have.
Getting the business users trained and getting on board was easy as the interface is intuitive and easy to learn and manage.
