What do you like best?

Free-form canvas allows us to create application-like dashboard interfaces. Data management options allow us to highly leverage back-end database capabilities. Speed of build with shared internal datasets working across linked components. Custom expression scripts with easy referencing across components greatly expands the type of dashboards that we can deliver. Highly efficient data handling and responsiveness within all browsers. We also utilize the Centigon maps plugin within DecisionPoint for interactive mapping.

What do you dislike?

Data management has evolved significantly over time ... we could use more functionality in merging data sets and joining within the dashboard data manager itself, which is already on the DecisionPoint roadmap.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Small company, but an extremely high level of support. Senior executives are highly engaged in the product and relationships.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We create enterprise reporting solutions for Fortune 100 corporations with significant data volume and heavy geospatial requirements. Support over 100 end users with diverse needs, and often have to modify standard dashboard layouts to meet unique needs - DecisionPoint provides the flexibility to accomplish rapid initial builds and reconfigurations.

What do you like best?

When I re-joined the firm, we were considering QlikView. It was expensive to purchase, expensive to maintain, and required a brand new bunch of hardware from what we already had in order to get it to work.

I figured there must be some other options, did some research and found DecisionPoint for Excel. It was incredibly simple to use and learn compared to QlikView, and the annual renewal cost for it was approximately what QlikView charged per month. Plus, DPE was so much cheaper than QlikView. We love it and have had no complaints.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there is nothing that I can think of that doesn't work for us or that we dislike. DPE is awesome.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has a free trial, and the support team is excellent. It saved us probably $60,000 up front, and then about $6,000 per year in maintenance expenses, from the other software that we were considering. Purchasing DPE was really inexpensive compared to QlikView, and we figured we could try it out to see if it worked for us. It absolutely did. The only way we would have been able to do that with QlikView, is if we had hired a 3rd party vendor to build out the solution for us, and that was going to cost somewhere between $10,000 and $30,000, if I remember correctly. If you want a functioning dashboard with lots of options to make it do what you want, I definitely recommend DecisionPoint.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before using DPE, we typically had a general idea of how our business and cash-flow were doing. With DPE, we can now see exactly what revenues we can expect. DPE is customizable, so you make it into what you want. We wanted to see projected revenues for the next 4 quarters of the year and built our dashboard to show this. Now, in just a couple of screens, we can see exactly what we need to help us manage our business.

Dashboard system but work in progress

What do you like best?

The ease of use to create a simple dashboard with the ability to prototype with users using the live dashboard. This allows an agile approach to developing dashboards without having to backwards and forwards with designs.

What do you dislike?

The administration of user is very clunky. As our user base has grown, I am increasingly noticing how difficult it is to maintain users and permissions. Managing using active directory groups is probably the best way to go but this does require an extra level of administration as new groups will have to be created by the AD administrator.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Decide your administration structure first and think on how users will be granted access to dashboards. Creating the dashboards may appear relatively easy but the process of maintaining and improving them can get tricky if the structure is not a first in-place.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are trying to provide visual representations of our data that can be consumed both on and offline. This has provided a high level overview of trends whilst allowing a drill down to some more detail.

It is always good to receive customer feedback and this is something we take seriously. We’ve passed on your comments to our Product Management Team and asked them to reach out to you, so they can learn a little more about what you are trying to do and potential changes we can make in the future to enhance this area of the product.

What do you like best?

Decision Point's blank canvas allows us to build anything from a mobile phone app to a heavy duty BI system, from scratch to completion in a few hours. The end result is completely intuitive for the untrained end user. If your intended users aren't all data analysts, then Decision Point is a much more effective solution than Tableau.

What do you dislike?

This isn't really a criticism - Decision Point is always evolving so when we come across something that can't be done easily, it is quickly sorted. But the flexibility of the system means that we can work around most problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

1. Consider how easily your end user will be able to use the apps you make. Decision Point is well ahead of the competition for this.

2. Think about cost per user. If you have few data analysts and a lot of data users, Decision Point's pricing structure is much better than the cost-per-user-licence model.

3. Use the free support resource and helpdesk website, they are brilliant and will go the extra mile to get you up and running.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We work as a data visualisation consultancy for companies including Sky, Hearst Magazines, News UK and the FT. Decision Point allows us to centralise all of their diverse data sources into a single interface. This cuts the time their analytics and research teams spend feeding the business with data and allows their end users to self-serve the data they need without confusion or risk.

What do you like best?

DecisionPoint has revolutionized the way my organization uses business intelligence. Overnight, we went from being dependent on Excel (always waiting for the next report to come out), to interacting with live data on a drillable dashboard. A small team of analysts is now capable of supporting hundreds of employees. DecisionPoint was easy to learn and implement.

What do you dislike?

The only challenge that remains is the complex data preparation that my organization needs, which DecisionPoint does not currently solve for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My organization needed a business intelligence platform that could allow for quick drill-down of aggregated sales data through millions of records to help our category merchants see the underlying data that is driving sales performance. With DecisionPoint, they can do that research in seconds. To say the least, we have gained an average time savings of 1.5 hours per employee per day.

What do you like best?

Mocking up with the WYSIWYG interface.

It's so simple and elegant. If all you want is a very simple dashboard build time can be very, very quick.

What do you dislike?

Infancy of the product. The product is still young and so there are a few niggles within it. Nothing major and nothing that can't be lived with + Antivia have been very good at correct a few flaws we've found.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A principal reason that we invested in DecisionPoint was that Antivia proved that it could do everything we needed it to do and provide the ability to access our information even when offline. I can't go into specifics but as part of our vendor selection process I gave Antivia challenges that I did not think that DecisionPoint would be able to do & they completely exceeded expectation with DecisionPoint.

The WYSIWYG interface really does make mocking up and collaborating with users very simple and can lead to very fast development times as long as you marshal your data properly, obviously.

Antivia feel a lot like a partner as opposed to a vendor. We have worked with their people on our site for a significant time and together for circa 2 years. It has often felt like our requirements have driven a number of changes in the product (which may or may not be true) but Antivia are very reactive and heading in the same direction we are. The support they give us is exceptional.

For developers; DecisionPoint will feel like home if they have previously used SAP Dashboards/(Crystal as was) Xcelsius. There are new nuances to lean however the product features components and ideals that will feel very familiar and you can expect to be building new dashboards very quickly.

At the end of the day, DecisionPoint feels like a product that is built by people who live and breath dashboarding.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In the early stages of our project we have built a catalogue and series of dashboards that provide our business with an at-a-glance view of performance that they can choose to either delve deeper into or simply leave if all is well.

The benefits to us (BI) is that we have been able to reduce the number of reports produced that are now covered by these dashboards. Benefits to the business are that they now have a catalogue of key information easily available to them at their finger tips wherever they may be in the world.
