Pros

I love that the tool is so easy to use and it turns data into a manageable and easy to digest appearance. It manages to make data fun to look at, and it's really easy to work with.
I also like the fact that the company is always striving to improve their software as it shows dedication to the field. With every update I find that the new features help with my job quite a lot.
Linking existing databases works like a charm. It has a plethora of data visualization methods which is extremely professional and helpful for users to gain valuable insights.

Pros

Wonderful, they have been there for us from the beginning, and are still there when we need assistance. SENSITIVE CONTENT] has been amazing to work with.
DataRails has substantially improved the accuracy of our budgeting and forecasting. I love the ease of it, how accessible it makes our numbers, and how simple it is to follow real-time statuses.
It has been smooth and will be an easy transition for us. Above all else, [SENSITIVE CONTENT] has been super helpful.

Cons

I'll say that it was really frustrating to use in the beginning, it is complex and if you've never been in it before it is overwhelming.
Due to my lack of familiarity in how to code, I was uncomfortable at first and found it difficult to learn.
What is even more annoying is that it also takes several minutes to cancel a query. I really don't understand how it can take that long just to cancel a query.

Cons

We have been struggling to get a live connection to DataRails from our ERP for some time now.
We were trying to work with our internal controls, but it was proving to be too manually intensive and costly with upkeep and designated staff.
The platform doesn't integrate with Excel 2007 which is a bummer.

DataRails - an efficient and simple tool with potential for improvement

Reviewed 4 months ago
Pros

I like the following items about datarails 1) its simplicity in terms of report creation and implementation 2) it is a great collaborative tool

Cons

Areas of improvement include: 1) The dashbaord functionality is very limited compared to tools such as Tableau. I would like to see more features in terms of the types of graphs and customizability 2) API connections should be alot easier to implement. We have been struggling to get a live connection to DataRails from our ERP for some time now
