How has it helped my organization?

What needs improvement?

Quadient has always been a leader in innovation, and the existing functionality that has been around for at least two years cannot really be improved further. What can be… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Our solution prior to this was a long, long time ago (around 2003, I think). We used a different document composition software in the Telco that I was working for. That… more»

What other advice do I have?

The thing I like most about this solution is that there is a very valuable and connected community of real users, connected in the Quadient University. You can post any… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

It was a long time ago, and we were deciding between GMC and Exstream. At the time GMC (now Quadient) was just a better solution for us, with a cheaper price tag.

* Single tool for both data and composition handling * Multiple options in approach and dynamic content inclusion make for great flexibility and benefits internally and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Inspire has allowed us to provide better solutions to customer and reduce overheads of single-skilled resources. Timeframes to deliver solutions are greatly reduced.

What needs improvement?

Many of the features that are problematic in the version that we use (R10.4) are resolved in later releases (R12 is current). The one area that Quadient (historically) has… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing and setup costs historically have been a roadblock, but there have been improvements on this over the years as things move into the cloud. The cost vs… more»

What needs improvement?

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We sprent time looking at many options Quadient offered and made decisions about what we needed to enable us to be futureproof.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use an alternative but it wasn't as robust and didn't allow the manipulation of PDFs.

What other advice do I have?

Do not expect to be able to use the software without any training as it is extremely powerful with many modules and can be slightly overwhelming if you have had no… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated PlanetPress as an option.

What is most valuable?

I love diving into data manipulation so the data transformer is one of my favourite places to play. Raw data is only so useful. Being able to reconfigure allows us to add relevance and clarity for customers.

How has it helped my organization?

Inspire was already in place when I joined the organization, so I don't know how it was changed. I can, however, see how it makes us more flexible with regards to our client output. The reports we produce are customised to a wide range of client type with the optional pages and sections numbering in their hundreds. Strict controls around development in our primary system mean that the ability to… more»

What needs improvement?

The power and depth of the product mean that it can be quite difficult to see everything that is going on. Quite often we end up with 10 or more nested levels of tables and flows. I'm not sure how you make this easier to see but the right solutions would have huge benefits.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable aspect of Inspire is that it is constantly being upgraded to keep up with current market trends. This market is constantly changing, so we need to continually roll with those changes and Inspire allows us to do that.

How has it helped my organization?

We have used Quadient Inspire since before I was brought on board, and I cannot imagine what it was like before that.

What needs improvement?

In the (near) future I would love to be able to merge Excel XLS data with the same level of ease that we can currently merge CSV data sources (including text attributes, which are lost when using the CSV format).

What do you think of Quadient Inspire?

What is our primary use case?

From data manipulation to page layout. This is truly a single solution for us. The tools included are more than capable of handling even our most complex versioning.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution does everything we need, plus so much more. We are constantly finding new uses for the software.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the fact that Quadient never sleeps; they are constantly adding new features and expanding the capabilities to keep us moving forward.

What needs improvement?

Documentation could always use some improvement, especially on something this complex and varied. That being said, the documentation has been steadily improving over the past 15 years that I've been using it.
