What do you like best?

DecisionPoint allows us to create easy to use interactive Reports and Dashboards for delivery on both desktops and mobile devices more quickly and easily than ever before. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As this is a simple drag and drop, the tool is all awesome and no dislikes Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We are creating reports and also dashboards very easily and quickly. Earlier, we used to do most of the tasks manually using tools like ms-excel, MS access database, word etc. In DecisionPoint we an just simply drag and drop and prepare the visualizations and then they immediately fill with Data. This creates a interactive dashboard with just few clicks. Its quick and simple. Adapting to new requirements is just as easy and with the new unique live preview of expose decision point you can see the changes on the desktop or on the mobile device as you make them at design-time. rearrange the components change a visualization sort the results or filter them. add a new column to a table or indeed calculate a completely new column from the data. Once you have the layout you require you can change the look and feel of the dashboard with themes either across all dashboards at once or specific to particular device types. Once you are happy with the dashboard save it to the server and it is immediately available for the end users to view on the desktop and mobile devices. The possibilities are endless . it really is this easy to create next generation engaging interactive mobile BI content on top of your existing data sources and deliver to the desktop to mobile devices or embedded in websites and portals Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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.

Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What 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.

What do you like best?

After many years of talking about introducing interactive dashboards into our reporting and analysis offerings with no success, the use of DecisionPoint for Excel allowed us to introduce an initial set of dashboards within weeks.

Ability to deliver via intranet or email a big advantage - can keep all data 'onsite'. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

DecisionPoint for Excel version cannot easily distribute appropriate subsets of data to different users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

I estimate that the use of the interactive dashboards has led to a 10 fold increase for information analysts in the speed of performing additional analyses and has definitely enabled more detailed analyses to be undertaken.

It has also enabled more end users to undertake their own analysis. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

From what little I've used of it, it seems to convert quickly and fairly smoothly. I also like how easily it is shared, both on a desktop and through my Android phone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't use Excel enough in a way that fits DecisionPoint for it to be useful for me. I can see the perks of it, but beyond our budgeting demonstrations, I very rarely find a need to use it because it's often easier for me to just pull directly from Excel or create charts/graphs there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Find out who will be using it and for what. If people are already very familiar with Excel and know how to work out the formulas, graphs, etc. they might be loathe to implement another (unfamiliar) step. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

A problem that could be solved through DecisionPoint would be breaking out of the box and creating presentations that really POP. It's a definite benefit if you're looking to go beyond the normal graphs/charts in Excel or if you don't quite know how to work Excel to that point. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a BI Consultant, I'm a big advocate of presenting the business users with solutions to their data requests as quickly as possible. Hence, I have used DecisionPoint Enterprise to create highly interactive dashboards for BI Agile projects. With the DecisionPoint Designer I can create in hours a fully functioning, interactive dashboard with drill-downs, filters, custom colors and images, and more and deliver that dashboard(s) to the business users at every stage of the Agile Project. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For me, there is currently very little to Not like. When I first started using the product several releases ago, the support site was very helpful. But, I didn't find that much 'how-to' information. However, after talking with the support team, I am very pleased to see there is now a lot of 'how-to' information and examples of how to create outstanding, interactive dashboards.There is even a link to the 'Help Center' on the opening screen where you can find tutorials and sample dashboards. Excellent 'how-to' information and examples is readily available. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

C-Level executives and other managers prefer highly interactive, drillable dashboards as opposed to leafing thru pages and pages of reports. And the dashboards need to be very 'easy' to use. DecisionPoint can deliver. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The issue of business user 'adoption' of the finished BI application has always been high on my list of issues. I'm a firm believer of involving the business users at every stage of the SDLC, especially at the very beginning during the analysis phase and throughout the development phase. Which is why I really like the Agile project management methodology where you need to 'deliver' something at the end of each sprint. With just a little data - real or sample -, I can deliver an interactive dashboard to the business users to start the 'buy in' process for the finished product. Without a high User Adoption rate for the finished product, I would perceive the 'project' as a failure. Using DPD, I can get that high User Adoption rate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The designer tool is very flexible. If you can think it, you can do it, most of the time. For those times where I was not able to build an expression correctly myself, support pitched in within 24 hours. They are worth the annual subscription. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Little aesthetic bugs like chart animations not working within View Stacks. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The setup fees alone for most dashboard vendors out there are 3 to 5 times the cost of an annual subscription with Antivia Decision Point for Excel. When you're a small business, reducing cost while meeting your objective is key. I believe the 'Excel' version of Antivia is a great value product for small businesses. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Small business needed dashboards to present to the executives. We realize we can aggregate much of the report data we have been using into single dashboard file. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Response from Joanna Gajewska of DecisionPoint

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback.

It sounds like you are using the standalone version of DecisionPoint, so you might want to look at adding DecisionPoint Server, which may add some of the extra capabilities you are looking for.

Please feel free to reach out to our Support Team (support@atnivia.com) if there are any particular features you require, as we are always keen to receive customer feedback.

Best,

Antivia Team
