What do you like best?
The ability to sync multiple business systems on different platforms, and in different geographic locations to sort and compare data elements. dashboard reporting and drill down capabilities are also excellent tools.
What do you dislike?
The tool can, at times, be very slow. Additionally, the drill down lags and is difficult to know if the system is processing, locked up, or not doing anything at all. the buttons do not necessarily reset themselves on the dashboard when selecting a different element to drill down on. it is also important to properly label the data elements when setting up a dashboard.
