"Exago - Simply Perfect"

What do you like best?

When things demand a web-based solution that is created to work with web-based applications you have a perfect place to go: Exago. The company, regardless of its size, will benefit from their self-service ad hoc, interactive dashboard abilities, and operational reporting. You can blend data obtained from a variety of sources such as SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Informix and more. With a simple drag and drop option you are able to create and build reports and other reports as well as schedule and merge reports. There was great ease of use, data security, product support, and flexibility.

What do you dislike?

There were error messages that would come up when using it in a distributed model and this would create its own challenges.

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

Many including the ability for the customers to build with ease simple reports or use the platform's formula capability to build complex ones if desired. There is also the option of scheduling reports to auto run at various time intervals.

"Been using Exago for 7 years - a mission critical component of Sageworks enterprise banking solution"

What do you like best?

Ease of use - you don't need a programming background to develop complex reports/dashboards

Extensibility - we implemented server events, custom UX, database report management and others

Enhancements - I've asked for enhancements and they've done all of them, the latest was ExpressViews

Security - As a Saas based platform with highly sensitive data, our auditors and examiners approve!

Support - The best.. They'll happily jump on a GoToMeeting and resolve report or environment issues.

What do you dislike?

Implementing report scheduling in a complex web farm environment can be challenging

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend time organizing your datasources logically so users can easily produce the reports they are looking for.

"Exago enables us to give our customers a flexible and powerful reporting tool"

What do you like best?

- We have a great working relationship with Exago. They listen to our needs and help us to solve issues. Response time via their online support system is great. And when we've run into issues, they devote the time or resources needed to resolve them.

- They release new features several times a year - the product is always changing and becoming more feature-rich.

- Exago allows us to provide canned reports to address our customers' common reporting needs AND give them the power to create their own reports.

- We decide and control when we will take a new release of the Exago software.

- We were able to customize the display so that customers using the German and Spanish versions of our software see it in their native language rather than English.

What do you dislike?

Our data set is very large so response time in opening and running reports is a little slower than we'd like. Exago informed us that an upcoming release will contain performance enhancements that should address these issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Test it against your data, including some large data scenarios.

- Take the time to create the reports or dashboards your customers need most. This will help ensure that the product can support those requirements.

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

We have 8000 customers who range from small IT service providers to large MSP's with hundreds of employees. With Exago embedded into our software, customers can create, run, and schedule the reports they need to manage their business and maximize revenue.

"Excellent Implementation Team"

What do you like best?

I have worked with several technology companies in the past and have mixed results. The team at Exago was so helpful and knowledgeable, it really made implementing their reporting tools a snap. They continue to support our relationship and really try to ensure our success.

What do you dislike?

This is a required field for the review but in all honesty, there was nothing that I disliked about any experience I have had with Exago thus far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The are a lot of BI tools out there and we reviewed 12 of them before choosing Exago. They checked all of our requirement needs and helped us bring a good looking product to market. But it is the support team at Exago that really shines.

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

Ad Hoc reporting is a huge selling point in my industry. Exago lets us deliver that functionality to our clients in a seamless way.

"Working with Exago has been a pleasant experience"

What do you like best?

I don't feel like we are just a number with Exago and that we truly are a business partner. Anytime a question or issue has come up, we get a quick response and work together to come up with a suitable solution.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing to report as a dislike at this time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Anyone considering implementing a new reporting/BI software should definitely take a look at Exago for their customer centric approach to service and solutions.

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

Our customers want access to their data in a lot of different ways and our prior software was limited on what we could offer. Exago provides the capability of providing basic reports with filtering, dashboards, and true BI. This type of flexibility allows us to offer our customers several ways of accessing and viewing their data which is critical to the growth of their business.

"Flexible tool, great support"

What do you like best?

Our application works pretty seemly with the Exago tool. The support and assistance is great, new features added are often just what we need.

We would like to use more features available and need more time to appreciate all what the tool can offer.

What do you dislike?

We sometimes have issues keeping up with the upgrades. We can't take advantage of all the new features.

Demo database is often not like our product but usually pretty easy to move past this on a call or webex.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please plan your implementation and phases with using it.

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

Awesome point in time reporting for all users and clients globally. In our old process reports were hard coded and not flexible. Now this is no longer an issue.

"Flexible and powerful reporting"

What do you like best?

The ease to create simple to complex reports and dashboards that can be filtered dynamically. Casual users will easily be able to create reports with detailed ans summarized data while advanced users will be able to create complex reports with advanced calculations and graphs.

What do you dislike?

Some functional limitations. We faced some challenges with drill-down capabilities and with graphing but the support team at Exago was there and helped us find solutions and workarounds.

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

We integrated Exago into our HCM software to help our clients make some sense of the data handled by our software. We are supplying a library of generic reports and dashboards with our software so our clients already have something to work with. The goal is also to inspire them with our examples so they can start to think about new ways to analyse their data and build their own reports.

Also, the fact that we have a BI tool integrated is a nice selling point when approaching prospects.

"Choosing a Great Partner: Exago's BI Reporting Tool"

What do you like best?

Fantastic Communication. Whether it is the Exago Team, or the system. I come from the business development side of our business and to be able to get immediate responses to questions, or that clients can get the same from the Exago system for their analysis needs, reflects positively on SMS's .

What do you dislike?

Seriously? Absolutely nothing. We are a relatively small start-up and as such can be proportionately overly demanding on vendors as we go through our own learning curve. The Exago team have taken the time to understand our business model to better respond to our questions and help our clients achieve the best results.

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

Our core business model deals with small businesses of 20 employees + in regulatory compliance. We have an enterprise division which then deals with large global clients. Our challenge was to support the smaller companies in their reporting when they did not have the level of data, or expertise to justify an overly complex BI reporting tool. SMS360 did not want to have a high maintenance product either. On the other end of the scale we have the large complex organizations (500-5000+ employees) who have more complex reporting requirements and who want either SMS or their own personnel to be able to manage their constantly changing reports requirements. Exago BI allows SMS to manage both options affordably, and in return pass across those savings to our clients.

"Wonderful Technology and Even Better People"

What do you like best?

Exago is exactly what we've been looking for in a business partner and BI solution. Their BI tool is simple to learn and has every feature we we're looking for. They constantly add updates and do a great job of driving innovations that their clients want to see. Exago BI's roadmap is packed with exciting new features we're really looking forward to implementing. Everyone we've worked with in the company has been top notch and excellent to work with. They've been very responsive to our needs.

What do you dislike?

Some of the screens have smaller font and dropdown menu items so it can be challenging to use. We've recreated these screens on the front end so it became a non-issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We looked at 5 different BI companies. There are dozens out there that all have their own way of doings things as far as features/ look and feel goes. We knew their technology was great but their people really make the company who they are. Their ownership team have been amazing and their support team is second to none.

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

Our current solution has antiquated reporting capabilities and we've really reached the top of it's capabilities. We looked for a solution that would not only replace what exists today but also to add to the feature set we offer. Exago brings so much more to the forefront with Dashboards and several options for report creation. We've replaced our canned reports, added a report creator and built out several Dashboards that our clients will love. Exago does a great job supporting new clients and provides a great training program. Their monthly workshops have been great to insure we're taking advantage of all of their capabilities.

"Excellent Self Service BI tool with a modern, easy to use and intuitive user interface! "

What do you like best?

- First Class Customer Support! (On an average we never had to wait more than a day to get any type of resolution)

- Express Reports (very popular with our users since it takes less than 3 minutes to create a simple report)

- Quick Dashboard (where you can drag and drop fields to create a dashboard)

- Themes (Yes - we often see people excited about this)

- Report Format Support (All popular formats are supported)

- Report Scheduler

What do you dislike?

- Exago doesn't offer a Central / Global Search

Recommendations to others considering the product

Exago offers a simple yet super intuitive BI tool along with top notch service and training! Exago can cater reporting needs of all types of end users regardless of their database knowledge or report writing skills! I highly recommend Exago to anyone who wants to provide exceptional BI experience to their user base!

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

We are trying to provide the end user with the power to write, share and schedule their own reports, especially users who have "NO" reporting/database background. This is where Exago scores the best. It is not only easy to implement but also has a fully interactive, easy to learn user interface which has become very popular amongst our user base. Exago has helped us save a considerable amount of time and also concentrate on other areas of our business by moving out of the traditional report writing process.

"Great Partner"

What do you like best?

Exago is a pleasure to work with. They are very open to feedback and have a great staff. They are very responsive to requests and they get their customers involved to ensure the maximum benefit to customers.

What do you dislike?

There are no dislikes at this time with the software. Satisfied customer

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

We have a large volume of customers who all run their business differently, and thus we need a flexible and easy to use self-service reporting tool. Exago provides us with that tool. We have recently taken the software in an exciting direction as we enable customers to create their own dashboards embedded in our software.

"Exago is truly the only choice"

What do you like best?

Straight forward company with good business ethics, they listen and care as much about their product as they do their customers and their clients.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found anything that I dislike about this product

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make it your first stop.

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

I've researched many different BI's before landing on Exago. I have to say, they not only had the best Demo but a very friendly team to present it. They recognized our needs and targeted just what we needed.

Our business relies heavily on our clients being able to get to their data quickly, accurately and be able to retrieve and download it to the platform of their choice. Exago not only does that but it does it in a very timely and efficient manner.

We currently are using Izenda and the interface falls short of providing an ease of access as well as being able to handle large data files. Exago on the other hand uses a very comprehensive tree like drag and drop interface that is very easy to use. Accessibility to data is very friendly and simple. The real shocker is how Exago handles large data dumps. Very quickly into any format.

I consider a reporting tool like a calling card to our clients and I expect a product that will make us look and feel professional and Exago does just that, and they feel the same way about our clients as we do. The more successful we are to our clients in the reporting field the more successful Exago is to us and the industry.

We are in the first implementation of Exago, but if this goes anything like we have experienced so fare, we are in for a great product and a good relationship with Exago.

If you're company is planning on using a third party BI, I would suggest you do the comparison. But use Exago to compare to any product out there. I'm sure your findings will be like mine. Exago is the only way to go.

"A great product from a great company has been a great win for our customers!"

What do you like best?

The best part about being an Exago user is getting to work with the people there. I feel like we bought a relationship, not just a product, and they are always eager to help with any challenges my users or I present.

As for features of the product...

For Beginners: The "Express Report Wizard" walks new users through the steps in a very logical manner: what data to include, how to sort and filter it, and how to lay it out, including grouping and totaling. Express reports can be converted to Standard reports for more advanced authoring. In fact, I use the Express Report Wizard as a quick way to bootstrap almost every new report I write. The cross-tab/pivot-table wizard is also great for any new users who have done similar work in Excel.

For Power Users: There are tons of features for advanced report creation, including many that are not immediately obvious. The formula builder is very logical, following Excel-like syntax, and can be extended with custom functions. Conditional formatting is great to visually highlight interesting data, but it's even more powerful when you use it for conditional row suppression: you can use it to hide or show rows based on more sophisticated logic (such as aggregates) than you could achieve with a normal query filter. Cartesian processing lets you combine sets of data that are not directly related and present them side-by-side. When you want to leap from textual reports to visualizations, Exago has lots of charting and dashboarding capabilities.

For Developers: Exago was written by developers, for developers. It is extensible at almost every point. We use the .NET API to integrate it into our app, and there is a REST API for non-Microsoft shops. You can also write "server events" in JavaScript or C# to inject your own code into various phases of the processing pipeline; for example, to implement your own logging or intercept and modify a SQL statement before it is executed. The client side is also highly customizable, especially with the improved white-labeling in the 2016 version.

What do you dislike?

Some types of queries are only possible by writing raw SQL outside of Exago. Documentation of advanced developer features is spotty (but it's improving, and the support team is very willing & able to help).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a good balance of ease and power in a browser-based reporting app, you owe it to yourself and your users to give Exago a try.

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

Our users demanded a way to write their own reports. This was challenging since our app is browser-based and cloud-hosted, and since most of our users lack the technical sophistication to use the popular advanced BI tools. By integrating Exago into our app, we've met that demand.

We've also started to use Exago to write and distribute our own reports embedded in our app. So much easier than hand-crafting HTML!

"Great embedded reporting solution for our products"

What do you like best?

Flexibility. The product provides developers with both functional as well as visual customization capability. We spent a fair bit of time looking at other .NET OEM and embedded BI solutions, but only Exago could be seamlessly integrated with our application and meet our extensive database user security model and filtering requirements. Better still, Exago allowed us to dynamically migrate thousands of existing customer-written reports on-demand, which saved us thousands of man-hours (not to mention client frustration) recreating legacy work. We've found at virtually every time we needed to solve an issue, there was a way to do it. The support and development team are extremely quick to respond and come up with solutions. The few defects we have encountered are addressed quickly. Their licensing model is simple, fair, and realistic.

What do you dislike?

Very little. Dynamically arranging dashboard elements and report fields could still be a bit easier from a drag-and-drop point of view. No report "preview" capability.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly flexibly and customizable.

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

- Providing easy-to-use embedded BI, dashboards, and reporting within an established application with tens of thousands of users.

- Complying with extensive multi-tier user security model that required the ability to intercept and modify report SQL in real time

- Not orphaning thousands of existing user-created reports in our legacy solution

- high performance and scalability

- Ability to schedule thousands of reports for delivery by email

- Ability to tailor characteristics such as number of reports a user can create, schedule, etc by product line

"Great product, easy learning curve, and great support"

What do you like best?

Ease of use -- during our beta, we were able to have everyone from sales, consulting, and support departments start using it with no training. All were able to successfully able to make reports with no training; with the advanced SSRS report writers finding it easy to transition into advanced functions.

Support is great to work with, very knowledgeable and responsive. During the implementation phase, we integrated it into our product and found support to be there to assist at every turn. This allowed full integration with our product in less than 40% of the initially projected time.

The ability to programmatically control the fields, tables, and table relationships thru the API. And, while we have not implemented it yet, the ability to do row level filtering also.

The ability to have remote execution of the reports to a report execution farm for load balancing and performance was critical to us. This is included for not only scheduled reports, but also on the fly ad--hoc reports.

What do you dislike?

The latest version has been a great leap forward with respect to the UI look and feel, but there is still a little work around the edges needed to finish the modernization of the look and feel of the product. This being said, we found that throughout the implementation process, support was able to assist us with all areas we wanted to customize the look of.

Due to their responsiveness to client requests and issues, we are finding that we are typically a build or so behind.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take it for a test spin. During our initial selection, we did a POC with several BI tools and found Exago to be the only one that all of our users were able to create reports on the first time without training.

They are a great group of people to work with and we found that they were 100% invested in our successful implementation.

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

We were looking for a 100% web based reporting solution that could be integrated with our application, provided a user experience that was on par or better than SSRS, provided functionality that was equal to SSRS, had a modern look and feel, scalable for our hosted environment, and offered royalty free distribution. We found that the API allowed us to fully integrate the solution into our product, so that seamlessly flows and appears to be a single solution to our end users.

"Exago - Very nice Product. Powerful and Easy to use"

What do you like best?

When looking for embedding a BI solution within our HCM solution, we looked at several options and products. Exago was exactly what we were looking for in terms of user interface, richness of functionality, and connectivity for seamless integration to our HCM application. We particularly like its versatility and overall simplicity compared to other solutions we have considered.

What do you dislike?

For us, supporting french was a pre-requisite. Even though Exago did not have native french support, we were granted access to translation templates so we were able to easily add french wherever we needed it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy and simple.

Very good support,

Rich functionality.

Seamless integration.

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

Our users are looking for easy ways to extract data that is coming from hundred's of tables. They need the ability to create adhoc reports or graphs very rapidly from a large range of data elements. Exago allows elegant presentation of the data model which provides casual users with an intuitive environment to create all types of nice looking extracts they need.

Our clients are also looking for sophisticated dashboards that they will want to publish to a wide range of managers or business specialists within the organization, Feedback has been incredibly positive when users were presented with dashboards, providing them in a matter of seconds, the info that used to take days to get. Better decision making, faster, with the added features of filtering results in all sorts of shapes were key benefits for all.

"Great ad hoc reporting engine"

What do you like best?

From my perspective as a software developer who integrated Exago's software into our own, they provide many flexible features that allow you to customize the product depending on your own needs. For example, Exago provides several interfaces that allow us to manage our customer created data, where we store the reports and schedules created by our customers in our own database tables. They also provide other extensibility features, like server events that allow you to add custom code for specific events during a report execution.

We have used the api to "publish" reports for use in other parts of our application, as well as replace legacy asp reports in our application with reports created in Exago. This has helped us tremendously in standardizing reports across our application in terms of the terminology used as well as the data that is returned. Now when our customers try to compare results from various reports across our application, there is much more consistency.

What do you dislike?

Our data model is very large and we would like to see some future improvements on how the designer handles all of the field lists, so that the designer could be more responsive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to educate yourself on all of the extensibility features that are available as they add a lot of value in allowing you to customize your solution.

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

We integrated Exago software as an ad hoc reporting engine for our customers. It allowed us to expose our data model to our customers and provide for them a way to create their own reports. Some of the features that we benefited from, which we did not have in our legacy solution were the ability to create custom formulas on a report and also the ability to schedule a report.

"Powerful Reports with Adhoc Ability"

What do you like best?

Exago provides us with the ability to create powerful on demand reports with multiple drill down reports and charts. Everyone we have worked with at Exago from sales to support helped us achieve success with the product. With a great road map ahead and features driven by it's customers this product is hands down a powerhouse reporting tool.

What do you dislike?

Any issues that did come up we were able to work around with help from support and informed that solution will be available for our issues in the next release.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know your data. If you have garbage data then you'll get garbage reports, no matter what the reporting tool is. The support team is there to drive you to success so leverage them to help you where needed.

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

We are pulling in multiple data sources into a single normalized database and require a powerful analytics engine to build in depth reports displaying multiple data points for comparison with the ability to drill down for more detail. Exago allow us to do this in a user friendly report, web based or auto generated PDFs. It also gave us a powerful Ad Hoc report building too that has opened up the ability of our users to dig around and access trends and statistics that they hadn't considered before.

"Customisable Delight"

What do you like best?

As a cloud based solution, Asite needed a BI solution that was fully configurable and highly performing. Exago was a great fit on both aspects. The Web Based API Data Objects allowed us to fully configure the report data objects whilst respecting the complex ACLs that are a typically seen in the Common Data Environments our clients manage on Asite.

What do you dislike?

Initially the report dashboard loading times were a problem but this was fixed by Exago once reported.

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

There is a tremendous amount of data that are clients create and manage on Asite. Exago allows our clients visibility over this data and enable them to report on it. They are not tied in to certain custom reports and can slice and dice it the way they want it.

What do you like best?

Software is functionally very strong, easy to use, simple to integrate and Exago are always looking at ways to improve the product based on customer feedback

What do you dislike?

Very little if I'm totally honest. Would have previously been the interface wasn't the most intuitive available however they are consistently working on this area.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Exago is a very forward thinking company that is always looking to expand their product. Most importantly, they recognise the value of their clients as being best placed to define their future needs.

Enabling our clients to get a variety of graphical representations of their data with the power to drill down into key areas of interest e.g where they may be non compliant or carrying unknown risk

"Powerful doesn't have to be complex"

What do you like best?

Starting with the installation, it couldn't be easier. You can literally start developing a report in 5 minutes from scratch! Support team is amazing, an application very intuitive but if you get into any trouble, an email or a ticket to them is answered very quickly and effective.

What do you dislike?

There are some potentially powerful features (specially Extensions) seen on the demos which require more documentation to even start with.

Technical documents are not very detailed and it gets more obvious when you work as both Admin and Report Developer, under a Linux OS

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

"Great reporting solution for hosted applications!"

What do you like best?

I've been looking for web based ad-hoc reporting solutions as part of different projects for over 10 years. Each product I looked at did not meet what our company needed. Once I started looking at Exago it became apparent from the cost of ownership to the amount of customization it was the product that would answer this question for us!

I appreciated the sales process where they assisted me in setting up an instance, customizing the look and feel to fit with our system, and talking me through some complex reports.

The graph system they use is excellent, and the dashboards are an extra bonus to the reporting solution we had been looking for.

What do you dislike?

As a growing company the product still has some features I have not been able to use yet. When I first evaluated it the Map Charts had been somewhat limited, however I believe they are addressing this with integration to Google Maps in a release very soon.

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

Exago solves the ability to get report writing out of our development department and into the hands of sophisticated users. For developers it does allows us to push out complex reports without recompiling code or maintaining a custom written repository and delivery system for reports.

Before using Exago we provided our clients with Crystal Reports that we not easily built or configured by our end users. This was a burden for our clients and often required our consultants to build them for the client. With Exago we've now eliminated that burden and anxiety amongst our clients.

Like any reporting package, you need to have a certain level of knowledge to get the most out of it. We've struggled at times to dive in deep enough to learn all of the intricate details at times, but have always been able to get hep if needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to learn all of options, talk to their team

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

"Great BI/Reporting tool with great support"

What do you like best?

Easy learning curve. Many flexible features. Intuitive interface. Nice data dictionary features. But the most important and welcomed feature is the Exago team of knowledgeable support people. They all have been very supportive and responsive from the support people all the way up to top management. I feel like I have created friendships with several of the people within, especially Mike and Aaron, so far. It is that type of company.

What do you dislike?

Not much. A couple of features that were available within Crystal (have been using for many years prior to switching) are not available - yet... as other features have been added consistently since first purchasing Exago. I need more extensive mapping features and just recently heard that major enhancements are coming down the pike with geo-mapping.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I have used Crystal Reports for years - very experienced Crystal user - and decided to switch based on features and quality of management. I knew that while Exago was not as mature as Crystal, it would soon surpass in all aspects and it looks that this is happening sooner than I thought.

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

Currently using this product internally but will be moving this functionality out to state users needing information that we maintain. Looking forward to this as others using this product have done this successfully.

"Great software delivered for an even better team"

What do you like best?

It simplifies the approach to BI, creating a non intimidating UI that resembles a simple spreadsheet

What do you dislike?

Exceptions over database aggregations, while understandable, set up a blockage for our project, limiting the drag and drop of existing objects feature, but at the same time was a good call to normalized our data

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

It has been defined as THE way of centralizing our out of control , central repository of common used reports

"Excellent tool for web based ah-hoc reporting on complex data"

What do you like best?

Easy to configure and get running, its a very simple process of pointing it at a data source and to start generating reports, graphs and dashboard, plus the product is regularly updated with new features. As it is web based, there is no client side install.

What do you dislike?

Nothing at the moment, earlier versions had a clunky UI but that has improved greatly release on release

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

We've embedded the product into our web application so users can generate their own complex reports, graphs and dashboards off their data, and all from their web browser. We've also customized the look of the product so it matches our styles.

"Exago 3.0 - Simple and Versatile with Engaging Support and Training team"

What do you like best?

Support and training teams have VERY deep knowledge of product and will work hands-on with you to ensure your report delivers everything Exago is capable of. Easy to send "debug packages" of the issue you're seeing so you don't have to spend 20 minutes typing an email with screenshots of the problem.

Report Designer window allows you to see the elements of your report easily without getting lost in pages of data. Separate tabs for each output allows you to compare your report changes easily

Report outputs are primarily table-based with some limited chart options. I think data tables are under-rated. It's much easier to verify data from a table than with a flashy bubble or treemap chart which allows you to easily verify data and is

Flow of using product is intuitive - layout of report designer mimics excel spreadsheet with industrial-strength BI tools such as Headers/Footers by group/page/report, subtotals, repeating groups, hyperlinks, drill-downs, dashboards, variety of filter settings, crosstabs, parameters, charts, pulling filter values (i.e. date ranges) into subtitles of report.

Robust Admin console allow high level of customization for larger clients

Multiple export options work seamlessly - HTML, PDF, Excel, RTF, CSV

With other reporting tools (i.e. Tableau) I feel like the tool tries to be everything to everyone and troubleshooting incorrect data can become difficult with all the advanced sorting, table calcs, parameters, imported spreadsheets and extracts going on. Here you can read the data easily and identify any gaps in report design quickly.

Again, if there are any gaps between your knowledge of how to make Exago accomplish what you have in mind the support team will take ownership of teaching you how to fix the specific report you're working on

Collapsible group header allows summary level report that opens into detail report.

What do you dislike?

The simplicity of the product is a little bit of a double-edged sword...sometimes advanced sorting would be beneficial. I'm not a big fan of complex charts but a few more color options would be nice. Doesn't have GIS capability that I'm aware of.

For collapsible groups need the header (i.e. company) and footer (Profit: $1,000) to show for effective summaries.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Personally I would never go back to using other BI tools

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

Working on presenting sales commission, revenue, billing, invoicing data for a staffing software company. Problem can be showing this data flexibly at a high level for managers with detail available at a single click for deeper dives.

The benefit of using this software is the amount of customization avaiable, robust and standardized reporting structure for production and the ease in troubleshooting discrepancies

"Exago is a great product!"

What do you like best?

I like how knowledgeable and passionate every employee I've spoken to has been. They take pride in making reporting easy for our end users.

The API is very deep, which makes performing tasks programatically extremely easy. Almost our entire implementation of Exago is done via the API.

It is amazingly flexible. Exago provides an abstraction over many kinds of datasources, so you can easily link a SQL table to an XML document, for example.

What do you dislike?

The API is very deep, but also a little obtuse. I understand Exago is working on a "Codex" to help developers/implementors more fully understand the intricacies and methodologies, which will be a tremendous help.

I also wish the documentation was more complete. There have been more than a few times when I come across a setting that sounds interesting, but not enough information on how to implement it, or how this feature differentiates from a slightly different feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I definitely recommend this product, especially if your client services department is as bogged down with minor "custom report" requests from customers as ours is!

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

We are providing our users the ability to report on a fully dynamic, fully-customizable database, with the ability to add data from outside sources. One of our main goals in this is to alleviate the pressure in our company to write "custom reports" for our users, by empowering our users to write (or edit) the reports themselves, without having to rely on anything outside a web browser. It's a very powerful sales tool!

"Very happy with the product and service"

What do you like best?

Depth of capability, different entry points for those having different needs and experience.

What do you dislike?

REST API doesn't yet perform as we'd like, and doesn't seem to be fully-formed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Listen when they tell you it takes three months to become proficient. This is not a negative, just the reality of the capabilities of this product.

Visualizing complex relationships, quickly locating problem areas, trend reporting.

"A game changer"

What do you like best?

Exago offers the most intuitive interface of a report builder that I have seen. It allows casual users to create their own reports and has the power for the advanced reporting user. The Exago API allows a seamless integration into our product. We can control any aspect of the reporting tool from the API which is a huge win.

What do you dislike?

Need a bit more information on getting the solution to work on Azure WebApps vs. a straight virtual machine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get a trial and do some basic connectivity into your DBs and try out creating some reports.

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

We needed a reporting tool that our support staff could use to create custom reports for our customers. Our support staff are not developers and they find the tool very intuitive. The best part though is that one or two staff members at each of our customers normally jumps in head first to do reporting for their organization. We do some training with them and then they are off to the races creating their own reports. This self-service for staff to create their own reports has set our product apart from others. Other staff at the customer normally jut run reports and maybe change some of the report filters. There is certainly something for everyone in the tool.

"Responsive team, quality product with flexibility"

What do you like best?

- The ability to embed Exago into our core product and the flexibility to style it as a seamless part of our application (our icons, buttons, etc.)

- Exago is able to handle our dynamic schema (on the fly changes in permissions, data sources and custom fields) and still keep reports returning data in near real time. We were able to sidestep the need to store data in memory or do daily refreshes but rather present data to clients in near real time-- a win for clients.

- Responsiveness of support and other team members up through the executive ranks is outstanding

- Exago's flexibility in handling use cases and integration efforts specific to our product.

What do you dislike?

- We're a bit challenged in keeping up with new product releases

- There are a few additional visualization types we'd like to see added

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

We were looking to provide more robust dashboarding, formula creation and overall formatting capabilities to our client base while still providing near-real time reports. We've been able to do this with Exago.

Exago has also gone the extra mille from a services and training perspective, meeting several of our requests for additional training and complex report creation assistance engagements.

"Excellent BI engine to embed in your software tool"

What do you like best?

When searching for a BI solution, our company was looking for a tool which could be seamlessly integrated into our existing software platform and completely white labeled. Exago not only met this but has made their entire software highly embeddable and seamless, while offering plenty of hooks for customizations and flexibility. Their support team is quick, knowledgeable, and professional. The visualizations support a nice, modern flat-look. We hit very few bugs during implementation, and those we did find were resolved very quickly. Enhancements were filed and some were made available during the course of our implementation.

Though the tool does have a learning curve (as most BI tools do), their documentation is comprehensive, and this combined with their free training and knowledgeable support staff allowed us to entirely self-implement after a guided pilot with the Exago team.

The dashboards with interactive filters, drill-down capabilities, and report export capabilities give us the power to provide at-a-glance high level results to casual or executive level users of our system and satisfy the power users who have a need to drill into details and understand the underlying data that makes up the visuals.

Additionally, it's clear that Exago has built their software knowing that flexibility is key to living as an embedded tool inside of another software product. From whitelabeling to allowing styling customizations to parameterizing features and allowing custom expressions, client-side hooks, and server-side hooks, Exago gave us the flexibility to provide BI to complex network of different user types and user levels that are present in our system.

What do you dislike?

One of the features that we wished to leverage was map reports. The existing mapping tool is fairly limited (for example, it does not support longitude and latitude and offers limited ability to show data associated to a location), however, Exago has promised that this will be addressed in the near future as we share our mapping requirements with them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before electing to use Exago, we evaluated other BI tools. Most of these tended to be catered towards the user story of "As a user of software X, Y, and Z, I want to be able to pull together data from X, Y, and Z and visualize it." What we needed was what Exago provided - "As a software vendor, I want to be able to use a tool that can visualize the data provided by the different data sources in my application, and surface those visualizations to my end users."

Consider your use case for BI strongly prior to making a vendor selection - Exago excels at embeddable BI.

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

My company's software is multi-tenant cloud based SaaS solution that needs to provide analytics data resulting from company initiatives. We needed the ability to provide high level visualizations to executive level (or casual) users and cater to power users who need access to detailed data and need the ability to build their own reports. Thanks to Exago, we've been able to surface powerful visualizations and calculations that measure return on investment for individual and combined initiatives, slice and dice data with filtering as needed, and give our users much more insight into their actions. We have recently launched our first release with Exago and plan to continue to use Exago to surface more data so our customers have the intelligence to make smart decisions based on the analytics provided by our software.

"Flexible and powerful tool for ad-hoc reporting and data analytics"

What do you like best?

I like how Exago is a flexible and easy to learn tool, especially for users with experience in Excel. The tool has also made strides in the last 2 years with the introduction of interactive HTML, dashboards and composite reports. We also like the extensibility of the tool and the option of adding custom action events and functions.

What do you dislike?

I still would like to be able to run multiple queries and combine them in one report. Also, the performance should be tuned for large loads of data, and the dashboards should be a little more responsive to user actions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The most important advise is to set up the semantic layer correctly and with the correct data objects and relationships. This is the most important step to ensure the tool would work according to your needs.

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

We use Exago reporting as our primary reporting tool. Reports are created and tailored based on client needs. Given the large size and variety of data our system collects, we needed a tool that is flexible enough, yet easy to learn for our large user base to use across multiple countries.

"Very powerful product and excellent support"

What do you like best?

Exago reps were always available when we needed them. When customizing this product for our end users, we had a lot of small tweaks and polishes we needed to make. Exago stuck with us through the whole process, iteration on iteration, and was always willing to lend a helping hand to get us up and running.

What do you dislike?

At times it felt like a few of the iterations were unnecessary because some of the changes we asked for were not made, and we had to point them out again. However, once we did, everything was always taken care of.

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

We are able to sell our end users a powerful analytics tool that they can use to customize their data analytics. Exago has allowed us to offer a new product that is being very well-received in our market.

"Exago, the Business Intelligence tool has enhanced our product offering to our custome"

What do you like best?

“What we found is Exago gave us the flexibility to roll out our subscription-based software to numerous customers without being penalized monetarily for every business-intelligence usage."

What do you dislike?

There needs to be a better UI for date selection for reports & graphs. Other than that, Exago is extremely flexible and allows us to configure the web pages with infinite possibilities.

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

Our company believes in making its QEHS application accessible not just to large-scale corporations, but also to smaller companies with fewer than five-hundred employees on staff. As a subscription-based SaaS, we’re offering small- to medium-sized businesses something they’ve never had before - an automated "Accident/Incident Recording & Reporting software." They were using Excel spreadsheets, and now our software solution with Exago, gives them a world-class enterprise reporting system for a smaller subscription rate. Exago is the "embedded engine" that takes all the collected data from our SMS360 app and produces meaningful reports and graphs for our customer- the end user.

"Great Product, Great Support, Great People"

What do you like best?

We tried many BI solutions out there before settling on Exago. Here are the things that sealed the deal

1) Reports output pure HTML (many solutions employ flash and other technologies to display complex report elements)

2) User interface could not be any simpler

3) API is well structured and pretty straight-forward

4) Technical Support - excellent response time, eager to help with your issues

What do you dislike?

Nothing that I can mention here, however, there may be recommendations e.g. the ability to save filters (or may be pre-populate last selected filter(s) for any given report). Although, this functionality can be implemented on the server side (the API is pretty neat) with ease, I am not sure if same can be said of the client side.

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

We are a web hosted SaaS solution and wanted to have a web based reporting solution (preferably HTML only solution ). Exago's ability to display charts, pivot tables, linked reports as well provide a flexible API that could easily integrate with our application gave us the liberty to fully incorporate it into our product, providing our customers with an excellent reporting experience.

"Implementation Underway"

What do you like best?

Exago provides four primary functions: a web-based report/dashboard designer, report viewer, report scheduler and admin console to manage sundry features. During preliminary testing, Exago's outstanding support team and comprehensive .NET API have allowed us to tackle our integration requirements. Having compared many other reporting tools, this product alone gave us the leverage we needed to emulate our existing reporting solution (an extensive library of crystal reports and ad-hoc tool) while boosting our reporting and charting capabilities to a new level.

What do you dislike?

The current iteration of the product runs as its own stand-alone web site and requires the host application to use HTML iframes for viewing content. This has its ups and downs. One challenge on which we are currently working is unifying the installation process with that of our own product. From a perspective of deployment, it would be easier to compile Exago into the host application if, for instance, features were provided in the form of .NET controls.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can expect a reliable business relationship with this approachable and hard-working group. The Exago team presents themselves professionally and are eager to identify and meets their customers' business requirements. All of our intercommunication with Exago has reflected positively on their values and customer-first attitude.

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

Our software is used by insurance companies, third-party claims administrators, and self-insured businesses. Exago will enable them to intuitively explore their own financial data and provide insights as quickly as they may design reports. This has the side effect of freeing our developers from report design work so that they may focus on our core codebase.

What do you like best?

Exago is a very flexible and customizable solution to add reporting capabilities to your AppDev project. We are using Exago to provide Canned and AdHoc reporting capabilities for transactional data.

We also use the Scheduler feature quite a bit, to give upper management an email containing reports that provide performance for the previous day's work. Excellent Product!
