For some of our extensions, there is little to no customisation and additional development needed. The Sankey DiagramData Refresh and Process Analysis extensions are immediately downloadable (and free to trial for 14 days).

However, the What-if Analysis and Business Glossary extensions require customisation specific to individual clients. If you’re interested in any of these two, please get in touch with us first to discuss relevant details needed for their customisation.
