Ease of Use
Time and again, customers who have used other analytics tools tell us how easy IDEA was for them to learn. The Windows-like interface comes with wizards for key functions, bubble help, HTML-based help functions and simple installation. It takes minimal training to get started. You’ll garner results in less time for greater ROI. You’ll rely less on IT resources. Usage will spread to additional projects or departments because of the increased adoption rate by staff. And, more importantly, IDEA is less likely to become dreaded shelf ware.
