Improvements to My Organization

  • Automated report processing

Room for Improvement

We sometimes have issues with multiple nested queries. They take a long time to run, and it would be nice to have them run faster.

Use of Solution

I've used it for seven years.

Deployment Issues

It was a bit tedious to set up the computers that run the software. We needed to download Oracle thin client, and set up computer variables. It took a while to do so.

Stability Issues

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues

No issues encountered.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Customer Service:

It's very good.

Technical Support:

From Good to very good, depending on who you get to help you.

Previous Solutions

MS Access. We switched because we were accessing an Oracle DB in the cloud with lots of data. Access needed to download the data in order to process queries which ended up either taking forever or not working at all. Toad allowed us to run the query on the cloud DB and, return data from the query. Made things much faster.

Initial Setup

It was a bit tedious to set up the computers that run the software. We needed to download Oracle thin client and set up computer variables. Took a while to do so.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Each license costs a bit of money, and you need to purchase maintenance for each license in order to get updates and use tech support.
