“One of the most exciting features about Arkieva is the fact that the reporting interface makes it easy to look at information in various ways. Our team has to present several management reports in various ways, the advantage with Arkieva is that we can do anything on the fly— it’s relatively easy to pull information. Mostly these are reports that would have taken a couple of days to generate. It’s a big game-changer for us.
