Why great project teams need more than Acumen Fuse

01. Hard to get started

Acumen Fuse has on average 70 buttons, switches, tabs and menus per screen. To figure out how to use them you’ll need to go through lengthy tutorials and a 220 page manual – nobody has time for that.

Nodes & Links is optimised to get you up and running immediately so that you can focus on making decisions based on data, not trying to figure out how legacy software works. 

02. Installation required

When it comes to actually using it, Acumen Fuse puts all the burden (and cost) on you. You are expected to install it on your equipment (and pay the maintenance cost), along with securing the equipment – all outdated concepts today.

Nodes & Links only needs a browser and Internet – we take care of the rest, from baked-in, best-in-class security to lighting speed performance. All on us, for free. 

03. Free updates

With Nodes and Links you get free upgrades and extra functionality as we develop the software based on your feedback.

No maintenance cost, no backward compatibility issues and no complicated upgrade procedures. 

04. Expensive

Trying Acumen Fuse means at least 1 year of commitment, and almost $5,000, with the risk of not working out borne entirely by you. You will also need to go through lengthy procurement processes that can typically last 4-6 months.  

With Nodes & Links, you can get your AI superpowers immediately and for free – using that lost time to save at least 250 hours from your workload.
