Comments: Overall, I find envision to be a useful tool that can bring to life the data that I am trying to represent. Very useful in customer meetings and presentations and the ability to export graphs charts or presentations is great. Still there are some bugs and the occasional glitch that does remove from the overall experience and trust in the data. I have no doubt that with the fantastic support most of these issues will be resolved in 2017.

Cons: The trial did not come with documentation. The videos of different screens was of little help.

Overall: There was no documentation showing how to manipulate the different screens. The demonstrations were of no help at all. The software is not intuitive. It is easier to just use Microsoft Excel to create graphs from a database. Without documented support the value was just not there.

Recommendations to other buyers: This software is less than user friendly. It is not something I would recommend to my customers.

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Free is always better, but what is free these days? I'd say that this is a reasonable price for the SW.

Overall: If you are looking for a cloud-based BI platform that you can manage yourself, Envision might be the one. It has easy-to-use data visualization capabilities and is a good bolt-on to integrate with billing systems. If you are starting from zero, this will definitely improve your customer satisfaction.

The Envision team provides good customer service, and the development environment is easy to use if you know most scripting languages.
There is a bit of a learning curve, but working with the console becomes second nature over time.

Recommendations to other buyers: Work with customer support; learn from them to accelerate your platform skills.

Pros: Ease of use, professional environment.

Cons: Cost, some pretty good ones are free.

Overall: I am a newbie to Python, but have found Envision's IDE to be familiar to others I have used which made the learning curve easier. I appreciate the balance between complexity/functionality and ease of use. Thanks!
