What do you like best?

Has a wide number of instruments and cross market data Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

When researching Corporate Capital Structure Eikon does not contain information around outstanding loan balances. On smaller companies, bond debt data is sometimes inaccurate. This means an analyst must cross check with companies 10K and 10Q's wasting a lot of time. Capital structure data and interface is very poor compared to Bloomberg. Customer Service is lightyears behind Bloomberg. Cheaper than Bloomberg but not as robust. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Eikon is great for finding and reading company and industry-specific news and insights. It is also valuable for screening for deals with certain attributes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The user interface can be a bit overwhelming at first. Figuring out how to navigate around and maximize the features of Eikon takes a substantial amount of time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Eikon is helping me learn about and develop a thorough understanding of companies and industries, which I am then able to leverage in my conversations with clients. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Eikon's best feature is the obvious presence of information on all types of companies. Ratios, financial figures are displayed in the easiest to view form and it makes using Eikon really easy. Cost-wise, Eikon makes the cut above CapitalIQ or Bloomberg even though it offers less visual information than Bloomberg. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Information about delisted companies is not always available. For example, AIM-listed companies of 10 years ago may be very difficult to find and it takes numerous searches to realise this. The data breadth is simply not a match for Bloomberg, however, it may be enough for someone who does not completely rely on one database. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Eikon is a complete and comprehensive package when it comes to financial research. The lower cost and easy-to-use functionality makes it all the more preferable option over many of its competitors. My recommendation when going with a tool like Eikon is to look over the market to understand all the features that it offers and how it helps your function. Moreover, comparing before buying anything makes sense since often the level of support offered on Eikon may be insufficient for your use, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Much of the financial analysis work we do here requires data from Eikon, which is less heavy on the CPU plus cost-wise it is relatively cheaper than its competitors. The fact that it gives the same information as Bloomberg does complete justice to the fact that we chose to go with Eikon rather than invest in a much more expensive software.

Thomson Reuters Eikon is one of the most complete data banks to find financial data on companies, markets etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Thomson Reuters Eikon is not so user friendly, by the way this issue can be overcome thanks to the free user guide available on the website Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Before using Thomson Reuters Eikon, please have a look on the user guides available on the website, just to understand something more about the qualities and functions available. It might be hard at the beginning but then you'll be fully paid off. A part from using Thomson Reuters Eikon, some data are available in a better way on Thomson One Banker and the data can be then inserted in Datastream for Excel to have great experience in the usage then.

What do you like best?

It has all the updated and most current accounting regulation and CPE courses for professional accountants in the public accounting industry to use. So it is a good resource for accountants to look for regulations and good tool to keep continuous professional learning. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only downside is that you will need some advanced searching skills to find the regulation you need. But I would not blame this to the product. The regulation database is huge and organized in its own way and will require some searching skills anyway. I think any similar products or software will have the same problem. There is just no easy way to find a specific information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a decent software supported by a big firm that are used by a lot of people. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I appreciate all of the different screens--it is easy to toggle between for different views of the client account. I appreciate the ability to view news related to stock quotes and think that the trading screens are very user friendly. It is also nice that you can access statements, 1099s, and other acct documents right form the client acct. I think the eQuest service is very well done and it is a very streamlined process to open accounts or transfer accounts. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish the dashboard service was easier to pull up and that there was a way to add a note directly to the account without having to pull up the dashboard service. That would make this service more consolidated and efficient. Also, it would be nice if there was a way to search for an account by filtering just to the branch rather than specific rep codes. Right now we have to filter by specific rep codes and it's not very efficient. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This is a really good product, in my opinion. They continue to make improvements that make it easier to use, which I appreciate. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Eikon is a good option among providers including Bloomberg and Factset. The dashboard is pretty flexible allowing the user to create custom views and layouts. The data seems good. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I was a long-time Baseline user. I didn't like that we were forced to move from Baseline to Thomson One to Eikon. It's lousy to have the product you like phased out and have to go through the learning curve of learning the "new" product. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Worth a trial and comparison against Bloomberg and Factset. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Thomson Reuters Eikon is a powerful tool that has relevant and easy to interpret analytics dashboards. The information is timely and dynamic. I also like how I can access this platform through my mobile phone. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I do not really dislike anything for the most part. Sometimes it can be slow, but that is a problem with most similar platforms. Maybe another thing I dislike is how the user interface is not super intuitive, there is slight training or it takes some time to get used to the platform. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are deciding between Thomson Reuters or Bloomberg terminals consider industry standards, also consider training for employees, as most people have used Bloomberg over Thomson Reuter Eikon. Thus, takes time for new employees to get used to it. Industry standards would be the main concern, otherwise the information and platforms between the 2 biggest competitors (TR Eikon and Bloomberg) are fairly similar and provide the same infomration with the same ease of access (mobile, access the terminals remote from your laptop etc). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

It provides financial information, all the exclusive news on financial markets and certain industries in one place. It consolidates information from all over the web into an easy to use platform that also does analysis. It also solves the problem of creating reports and analysis/ graphs on the financial markets. This makes it easier to use the data to come up with relevant information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
