Easy to set up, easy to maintain, easy interface for end users.

What do you like best?

We started using Roambi several years ago after I saw a demo copy loaded on an iPad at an electronics store. I needed something that did not cost a fortune, but allowed me to communicate data to various users so they could monitor the state of business and do ad-hoc analysis while travelling. The financial and time investment were very reasonable for a small company. Recent updates to the security options with Roambi Business have allowed me to expand what we can provide and include more sensitive information. I can now also specify by user which reports they can see. In addition Roambi offers easy to implement options to facilitate updates of report information as frequently as we need.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing specifically I do not like. Roambi continues to expand the reporting options, and I hope they will continue to do that. There are a few functional additions I would love to see in the future. One would be the ability to copy an existing report, then use a new data feed and simply re-map the fields. The second would be the ability for the admin to DOWNLOAD the last data file.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have someone with good data handling experience and understands how the end users think and use information to manage the creation of the reports and data feeds.

Take advantage of the Roambi support services, the team is fantastic. We implemented completely in-house, and scheduled a few training/conference calls with their support for areas (like the automatic up-loader) that were a little more difficult. I also contact support if I want a report to do something that is not obvious, I get quick response and usually they can find a way to do what I need.

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

We have a highly mobile staff, so the number one problem we solved was a way to provide information that is available from anywhere without having to search through email or connect to a company server to find what they need.

In addition, Roambi has taken a load off of our internal IT and analytical resources. Information is available in an easy to follow format, and our management team can often get answers to questions without having to request support.

Calhoun Truck Lines - great product!

What do you like best?

Building Roambi Analytics is fast and easy. And it translates to multiple levels in just a couple of steps. Once you have the basic report build developed, you can pull together unimaginable data for multi-level users. No more spreadsheets!

What do you dislike?

Building the API queries requires a higher level of computer programming than I am capable. Also, getting the data into the right build was tricky at first. But Blink and the direct upload CSV solve both of those problems if you need a fast turn-around.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Roambi is a great way to take all of your spreadsheet data on the road. Very few customers and employees can actually read reams and tabs and filters and sorts on an Excel file. But they can look and and understand what a pie chart, area graph and bar comparison say.

Plus we're operating in such an advanced technological age, why not take advantage of smart phones, tablets, iPads to make information more reachable and relevant?

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

Our business compares trends within 5 distinct locations, not strictly across the board in an all-in sales venture. Roambi allows our top advisers and members see a top down view, yet allows our regional managers to capture just their portion without cross-analysis.

What Data Visualization solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Fantastic tool to easily take big data and create very appealing, visual reports

What do you like best?

Reports are very easy to create. Updating with our API is very easy for all of our users and allows us to create very customized reports across our sales network. Customer service is fantastic.

Reports themselves provide a very functional view of all the data that is important for our sales and their respective managers.

What do you dislike?

Modifying reports is somewhat of a challenge since reports usually have to be re-built. Luckily its very easy to build the reports.

The business roambi site seems to be a little slow and there seems to be a lag in working with with library or the roambi analytics section. Not a huge issue, just a little slow. Also, scrolling through the library is not very compatible with a PC.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your company currently utilizes ipads for their salesforce, Roambi is the best option available to provide sales/activity data on the iPad/iPhone.

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

We are primarily using Roambi to share daily sales and field data with our field sales force spread across the nation. We have begun using Roambi to start presenting customer data to our main accounts to help bolster sales with these accounts.

Overall, Roambi is incredible in delivering easy to use, functional reports across the nation very quickly.

Large chunks of humdrum data transformed to brilliant visualized data form

What do you like best?

The industry I work for involves playing with huge chunks of data everyday. There are a large number of software's that claim to analyze data to make sense. But, using Roambi Analytics now, everything else seems way behind. It helps analyze your data better to visualized form that makes sense to people who wish to understand the huge data sets. The "Flow" helps in amazing reports from the data set and the "Roambi Flow Viewer" further helps anybody view these reports. Amazing functionality. Amazing features.

What do you dislike?

The lack of multiple languages seems like a feature lacking which can be upgraded such that the reach of Roambi can be widened. Data in the current times is going global. Roambi can tap the market with the basic multiple languages feature.

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

My work involves gathering huge chunks of data from the securities market, analyzing the data for trends and making sense of it, for the team and the clients. Roambi seems like a good option to go in for simply because of the ease of use, vast array of features and better data visualization. In the end if mundane data can be made to look good and sense derives out of it, that says all for the scope of Roambi.

Roambi Review

What do you like best?

Variety of chart options for data; accessibility for multiple users.

What do you dislike?

The rigidity of the format the input data has to be in for various graphs, when input data names or formats are changed the Roambi graphs need to be re-mapped (nuance rather than auto updating), for certain roambi graphs like the card view it's difficult to re-organize them in the input phase/stage.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Roambi is a great tool for visualization of data! There are still kinks and issues to be worked through however overall it's a product that helps with management decisions and live/on the spot updates!

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

We are solving the issue of stale information via excel reporting. Roambi helps disseminate information to multiple users and update the information that is distributed to people on the go! Benefits realized include time savings, less confusion on live data.

Sophisticated Business Analysis

What do you like best?

The ability to drill down through summary data to various levels of detail is wonderful and informative. Comparisons to past periods, be they weeks, months, or years, is also invaluable. Our next project is deploying a financial dashboard for senior executives and our Board of Directors.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve is steep, but the Roambi staff are extremely helpful and always there for us. They're also proactive about calling us, setting up conference calls, and checking on a regular basis.

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

We're now able to give our regional leaders up-to-the moment information on how churches in their regions are doing. Prior to Roambi, this information lagged by weeks or months.
