What is most valuable?

The best features of Sisense are the user-friendly interface and ability to deploy efficiently.

How has it helped my organization?

We implemented the solution into an environment that had been using Excel as a business intelligence tool with data delivered on a monthly basis and we have freed our sales staff from being Excel pivot table experts.

What needs improvement?

The application lacks a control of the exporting function. It gives you the ability to export both the dashboards and the widgets in two formats each, but the format of all the exports are not completely under the control of the... more»

What is most valuable?

Sisense's documentation and video tutorials were thorough and helpful in starting off with the basic usage of the product. Connecting data sources and creating a dashboard with a couple reports was a breeze. Given the limited company resources, we were looking for a Business Intelligence Tool that would be fast to set up and use by everyone in the company, from Product to Sales. For the price point, this tool is on par with many other BI tools out there. I also appreciate the fact that Sisense is constantly improving on the product, adding new features and providing detailed documentation on the changes and updates.

What is most valuable?

* Rich integration features * High customizability * ODBC feature allows unsupported data sources (when drivers are available) * Customizations features enable user interface modification (for someone who knows JavaScript)

How has it helped my organization?

We dropped Excel and saved hours of finance team work, with automated reports and dashboards.

What needs improvement?

Sisense has no native support for week as a data dimension, which is a major issue for us. They try to remediate this with plugins and custom SQL scripts and it works, but only to a certain degree.

How has it helped my organization?

* Allows users to build their own solutions without as much reliance on technology staff. * Ability to work with very large data sources without the limitations of Excel.

What needs improvement?

Minor improvements with formatting of data exports from dashboards. The ability for non-admin users to schedule the emailing of dashboards. I would like to see more development and growth for the support of Knowledge Base and Community forums.

What is most valuable?

Of course, all the visualization tools of the web interface are one of the things Sisense does best. But also, the custom tables from the backend of Sisense is one of the most powerful feature of the software. It allows you to clean your data... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Better tracking of the targets for our representatives, quick overview of the market by product categories , supplier, customers, states, etc. Ultra fast drill down capabilities that allows us to find answers to Ad Hoc business questions in a... more»

What needs improvement?

When your data cubes become to complex (many layers of custom tables), the performance of the tool might be slightly affected. Less speed, updates that are not triggered on your web interface without restarting the server.
