It is easy to select the required charts and assign them to automated analyses via Drag & Drop Predefined templates make getting started easy and suggest the most appropriate charts for your purpose – such as market analysis, industry analysis or competition analysis. The charts are interactive and can be integrated into your internal portals, such as the Intranet. Simply click on the relevant area to display the saved article.
