Embedded business intelligence software with WYSIWYG builder

4.64/5 (55 reviews)

Exago BI overview

What is Exago BI?

Exago BI is a business intelligence software that helps organizations create reports, and evaluate and visualize metrics on a centralized platform. Data analysts can use the drag-and-drop interface and WYSIWYG builder to create custom, canned or ad-hoc reports according to business requirements.

Exago BI's data filtering functionality enables employees to impose hierarchy, group, functions, parameters and prompting based filters to generate data-specific reports. The formula creation module provides a built-in library of functions and lets users create new formulas by automatically suggesting auto-completion options, flagging syntax errors, and preparing contextual explanations across all functions. Administrators can configure user roles, responsibilities, access rights, and single sign-on settings, ensuring overall data security. It also allows users to generate reports in multiple formats, including tables, charts, and graphs.

Exago BI comes with an API, which allows businesses to integrate the system with several third-party solutions. It lets staff members add logos, colors, themes, and images to reports and export them in multiple file formats, such as PDF, XLS, CSV, and RTF.

Exago - Great for SaaS products

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2020-09-21
Review Source: Software Advice

Pros
• Includes Report Building capabilities that can be utilised by the client. • All report building is completed within the browser – no downloads required. • Includes Dashboards. • Includes ability for clients to build dashboards within the browser. • Strong permissions structure, that means you can explicitly say which users can see what. • No data access layer – this is entirely managed within the client, which means no replication of login data. • Reports are built based on a ‘model’, built from our database • Includes software upgrades – easy to implement • Support provided via telephone or Zen Desk • Report Building capabilities – can replicate current functionality. • Option to download a trial version of the software. • No SQL Licence required. • If we end the licence, we have 12 months grace to transfer to another solution.

Cons
• Support Hours – These are 8am – 6pm EST (We are a UK-based business) • Costs – cheaper than Reporting Services with BI, but much more expensive than Telerik, Synchfusion and similar. • Server / hardware requirements

Good product to integrate Ad Hoc Reporting into SaaS software

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2020-09-21
Review Source: Software Advice

I think the general help and assistance from Exago has been good so far, we are kept up to date with version releases and we have a regualr dialogue with their team which is good to see.

Pros
We reviewed a selection of tools on the market and we felt the Exago was the product best fit our needs based on cost and functionality. We implemented Exago as a reporting tool for our customers to run real time reports and have graphical dashboards on their home screens as a kind of snapshot summary. Exago gives you the ability to create a suite of reports ready for customers to use and export in range of formats. You can also give customers express reporting so that they can tailor their own reports however this isn't something we have done just yet but will look to do so in the future. Were overall satidfied with the product and were looking forward to working with Exago in recommending further features and improvements.

Cons
The dashboards take an incredibly long time to load and there doesn't seem to be a simple solution for fixing this just yet. Improved Map reporting would be a great addition, a number of our clients wish to view data on maps and this seems to be very limited at the moment. The UI of the dropdown filter boxes could be improved and it would be good if you could return back to your filter options after running a report if you wish to amend rather than having to run another report.

Exago works for SaaS companies looking to integrate Ad Hoc Reporting

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2020-09-09
Review Source: Software Advice

Our experience has been uniformly positive, from sales, to implementation, to ongoing support.

Pros
We implemented Exago as an Ad Hoc Reporting tool for our customers, to go beyond the built-in reports we already provide. Exago gives them the flexibility to build their own quick ("Express") reports, create advanced and highly formatted reports, create dashboards, charts, and pivots, and to schedule reports to be automatically generated and mailed to a specified group of people. It was straightforward to integrate it with our platform, give customers a filtered view of just their own data, and customize the product for our specific needs. We evaluated a number of competing products and Exago was the winner for features, integration, and pricing.

Cons
Many of the products in this category are true Business Intelligence platforms, designed to be used by professionals in large corporate or organizational settings. But our customers are regular people, often volunteers, without professional training in complex software. The help is generally good and there are lots of video tutorials. But it would be nice if Exago had more wizards to step users through setting up a more complex report.

Great ad hoc reporting engine

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2017-02-27
Review Source: Software Advice

From my perspective as a software developer who integrated Exago's software into our own, they provide many flexible features that allow you to customize the product depending on your own needs. For example, Exago provides several interfaces that allow us to manage our customer created data, where we store the reports and schedules created by our customers in our own database tables. They also provide other extensibility features, like server events that allow you to add custom code for specific events during a report execution. We have used the api to "publish" reports for use in other parts of our application, as well as replace legacy asp reports in our application with reports created in Exago. This has helped us tremendously in standardizing reports across our application in terms of the terminology used as well as the data that is returned. Now when our customers try to compare results from various reports across our application, there is much more consistency.

Pros
We integrated Exago software as an ad hoc reporting engine for our customers. It allowed us to expose our data model to our customers and provide for them a way to create their own reports. Some of the features that we benefited from, which we did not have in our legacy solution were the ability to create custom formulas in a report and also the ability to schedule a report.

Cons
Our data model is very large and we would like to see some future improvements on how the designer handles all of the field lists so that the designer could be more responsive.
