Should you choose the Basic or Pro version of Charder Insight?
Determine which version is best for your needs
How many users do you have?
Basic: If you have a relatively small number of subjects, you can create accounts for them one by one using the software itself.
Pro: For larger institutions that may already have hundreds of subjects, it can be too time consuming to create each profile manually. The Pro version of insight offers both manual (data input form via spreadsheet) and automatic (retrieve from designated folder) options for importing profiles directly into the software!
How many PCs need to view results?
Basic: If you're primarily using one PC to conduct measurements and view results, Basic should be enough for your needs.
Pro: If you have multiple device and multiple PCs running Charder Insight, the measurement result database can be established on a central server, so all PCs are using the same database. You will be able to measure subjects using PC #1, and view results on PC #2 if needed!
Single administrator vs multiple users
Basic: You will be authorized a single Administrator account with full permissions
Pro: For larger facilities that may be setup to allow some individuals to measure, and others to provide recommendations based on results, you can setup separate user profiles with limited permissions. For example, if you wish for assistants to only be allowed to conduct measurements without viewing results (leaving that up to doctors/trainers), you can do so!
How are you planning to use the measurement results?
View basic results vs in-depth results
Basic: View all the results that are on the printed result sheet, plus history results for key body composition outputs
Pro: Take analysis a step further, combining recommended related outputs for different fields of use, making it easier to analyze the comparative relationship between different results such as the proportion of muscle and fat over a period of time.
Different fields of application utilize different aspects of Charder's professional body composition reports, and we're happy to discuss with you further to provide a more in-depth recommendation based on your needs!
Single subject vs analysis of a larger group
Basic: View all the results needed for managing an individual's body composition.
Pro: If you've been given the task of determining which age group in your facility has successfully developed the most muscle mass over the past 3 months, or who is the winner of a month-long fat burning contest, this would normally be a very time-consuming process, going through individual reports one by one. Charder Insight Pro allows you to set filters such as age, gender, and other demographic data, providing you with data such as the biggest change over a period of time, or the average value.
Prepare data for research
Basic: Save individual reports in PDF format, allowing you to print a paper copy for your records if needed.
Pro: Export CSV data file for easy collection of results, making it easy to build spreadsheets for statistical analysis.
