IntraStage is by far the best company I have worked with for developing custom reporting

We had been using software before IntraStage that had limited reporting capabilities and no way for us to create our own reports, so any custom reporting we did was done with Excel. Some of the more complex reporting could take us several days to a week to perform. Using IntraStage we were able to create custom reports that allow us to pull the reports we need in a matter of seconds. The software is very easy to use and we were able to train several of our internal customers to use IntraStage to pull the reports they needed without our help, which saves them a lot of time.

Pros

There is a lot of flexibility in reporting. I have worked with other companies that did not provide the ability to create custom reports and charged a lot of money to generate even a simple custom report. IntraStage allows me to create my own custom reports. Using IntraStage we also have the ability to trace the history of a product from the field failure back through the manufacturing process. The customer support is world class! The team is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. When we were initially talking to the IntraStage team about getting field return and shipment data into the system for tracking return rates, they had a working prototype (using our data) for us in about a week. They have been awesome to work with!

Cons

I'm not a big fan of Report Builder (from Microsoft) and that this the tool used to develop custom reports. But, honestly, that is a personal preference issue and not a problem with the software. There are no real Cons that I can think of regarding the software.

Very friendly with the users. Easy to learn the different reports.

Very friendly.

Pros

Once you are familiar with the reports, is very useful in a daily basis. Able to see current status of the units. Able to edit, and update different fields. Able to have summary and detail reports.

Cons

Very slow to run reports. Takes time to get results. There are some reports that takes to much time to open. Another issue is when you update and submit, sometimes takes to do the submit few times to updated.

IntraStage usage within medical device manufacturing

Overall our experience with IntraStage has been very good. The key players within IntraStage have been highly engaged with the engineers here in order to help us to understand the overall database system and IntraStage has been willing to work with us to meet our data collection and viewing needs. Honestly, from the outside looking in, IntraStage may not appear as 'polished' as some of their competitors, but from my perspective what that means is that IntraStage understands and appreciates the engineering expertise that exists within our organization and is willing to work with us to leverage both their, and our, capabilities. We would have been frustrated working with an organization that believed they had all the answers and gave us a database solution that forced us to meet what they provided. IntraStage did not do that but instead provides a database that has a very solid base, but allows us to customize our solution to meet our overall needs.

Pros

IntraStage's open architecture and open API's allow us to gather data from a wide variety of systems. The architecture also allows us to gather a wide variety of data from test system measurement data, to Failure Analysis data, to human input data, to engineering data. We have transitioned to a 'data driven' environment and IntraStage has been a key part of that transition. Since its initial implementation back in 2012, the volume of data we have been gathering has grown exponentially and the engineering community here has now come to expect data availability. As stated above, the open architecture presented by IntraStage allows us to solve our data problems in ways that are the best for our needs and does not force us to change our methodologies to meet the structure of the software.

Cons

As our data volumes have grown we are experiencing some challenges with the response times of getting data out of the database. IntraStage is currently developing their next generation system (based on Microsoft's Power Platform technologies) and we have high expectations that this transition will greatly improve our data access speeds.
