Best tool for the job

At Canopy our endeavor is to provide you with the analysis you want, in the format that works best for you. We also try and use the most efficient tool for creating these reports (so that we are able to deliver the best results at the lower possible cost for our customers)

There are three types of output we generate i.e.

  • Canopy 'Generate Report' feature
  • Tableau dashboards
  • Excel based reporting

Each type of output has its advantages, which are summarized in the table below
