“Review from administrator”

ProsEasy to use and to administrate. Easy to learn for end users. You do not need consultants to do all development and build reports, you can do a lot yourself without being a developer. You have the possibility to make suggestions about functionality in the system and to get them into the system if it is considered to be a good idea and you feel that the development team and support is near the customers.
ConsSometimes the need of special adaptions makes it a bit difficult to maintain and at that time you need help from consultants. But it is positive that it is possible to solve customer specific problems.

“Great support/help to me in my daily analyzing job. ”

OverallAdministartion, user, teacher to nurses and doctors, using a lot of data roght från the Mercur solution for analysis.
ProsOnce you learn it is easy to get all the good numbers and also pedagogically show to others.
ConsSomewhat harder for noneconomial proffessions to use. You should work on the pedagogical output so it is really easy for noneconomistas to use. For doctors nad nurses it would be a great help if it could be easier to understand.

“Mercur business control”

ProsIt has really improved our forecasting and once you've gotten used to the way reports are built it's not that hard to adapt and adjust them to your liking.
ConsThere are many choices to be made that you need to take into consideration when building reports to get the information you want. It takes time to know what they all are and what they refer to.

“Simple but professional”

OverallIt saves a lot of time for us when we are going to develop and deep-analyze different events / outcomes via multi-level reports in a simple, professional and structured way. Insurance deals are a little special to report and analyze since both income and claims costs extend over several years.
ProsEasy to learn but great opportunities to develop different analyzes and presentations/dashboards
ConsIt can be a little difficult to get started with thinking about how to build different analyzes, but when things are in place it is just to run.
