TrendCompass - A raw gem in the Data Visualization treasure box

On my recent post, I received a request is the form of comment from someone claiming to be from EPIC Systems requesting a review of their product.

Trend Compass is data visualization software using animated motion charts. It is similar to a well known Google Widget and Hans Rosling's Trendalyzer software using animated charts. Working with these charts is a new trend in data visualization. Unlike the Google solutions Trend Compass allows the company data to stay inside the firewall, it also doesn't require any opening of Google during a presentation, and it looks more flexible. This does mean that it is likely to be more suitable for statistical offices to work with this product than with the Google solutions that are also powerful but less controleable. Google can change the looks of its services without having to communicate with its free users. For many statistical offices this is not an acceptable practise. Trend Compass comes with a free downloadable trial version. It has a feature to export EXE, PPS, HTML and AVI files. The latter giving the possibility of recording Audio/Video for the charts created.
