Kommentare: Board has a set of valuable features to perform efficient analysis, provide quality graphs and reports with current data. This adds a lot of value to decision making in our organization.

Nachteile:

It has a considerable learning curve and needs to incorporate documentation that allows new users to use its full potential more quickly.

A Solid BI Solution Once You Understand the Backend

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: The biggest challenge to effectively using and developing for the Board platform is that you don't always know what you don't know. While that is true of most products, I can definitively say that I would have deployed the Board platform quite differently then I actually did had I the knowledge I do now then. In that vain, you are best to fully learn the product before fully diving in.

Vorteile:

This software accurately provides all of the insights my organization needs, including predictive analytics. In fact, if I ever leave my current organization, I will be heavily recommending this solution to my next employer.

Nachteile:

The biggest complaint that I have with the system is the time it takes to access support. That said, I usually always have the support I need within 24 hours.

In Betracht gezogene Alternativen:

One tool for different puroposes

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

BOARD doesn't require any program language, so both implementation and reporting could be in the hands of users without the support of an IT specialist. It's possible to implement the same models collecting from different sources and mixing different kind of information to satisfy different needs in the same report

Nachteile:

Since the system is 100% web based, the main improvement could be to make it usable with the main browsers (currently not all the features work for some of them).

Reporting & Allocation tool

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall a good product with a lot of flexibility.

Vorteile:

We had very specific requirements in how we wanted to build allocations that we needed. This software was extremely flexible and allowed us to build our allocations exactly how we wanted to.

Nachteile:

You are basically starting from scratch to build things, so without someone with some expertise, its not overly intuitive to build things from scratch. We had the help of a fantastic consultant that was very well versed in Board, so that made all the difference to us. We would not have been able to build what she did ourselves.

Flexibility and accuracy of management reporting

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: The integration with the ERP has made it possible to have data represented in a graphical way in an easy and fast way.
The accuracy, guaranteed by the software, allows us to work all on the same page without duplicating reports.
The amount of time for data processing was significantly reduced and this saving was invested in the qualitative interpretation phase.

Vorteile:

The possibility of having a flexible and customizable tool based on your company reality.

Nachteile:

The difficulty of using it in the absence of a consultant.

Outstanding Product that has become a critical tool for managing, monitoring and operating our biz.

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Numerous... can better manage our biz to ensure optimal decisions are made for both tactical and strategic problems and opportunities.

Vorteile:

-- Extremely easy to set up and use. It's easy to train new users and integrate with new data sources. -- Powerful capabilities to "slice and dice" data, analyze different datasets, create KPIs and broadcast reports to others. We utilize Board beyond the financials... use for operational, sales, logistics, customer service and environmental applications. -- Excellent support from Board on both "how-to" questions and any internal IT issues that may arise. They take recommendations and act on them. They connect customers to share best practices. -- Frequent new releases that extend capabilities. Board stays ahead of the curve and provides new features to address their customers' potential needs in the future. -- Good price point with several license types for different user profiles.

Implementor

5,0 vor 9 Jahren

Vorteile:

I like my relationship with the sales team the best. The front end reporting features and functions. I also like the flexibility of Board to be a BI, FP&A, Consolidation, and Reporting tool and that Board is 100% GUI interface - no programming. I can always find someone to help with my questions. I also like the ease of installing and updating Board Software. It is pain-free compared to a lot of software I've experienced. Finally, how wonderful Board demos to customers.

Nachteile:

What I like the least is the limited Board Data Reader for flat files. It does not specify what fails to load in detail from the Board Data Reader log.It does not allow for both field and columns reading at the same time. We should never have to massage/manipulate any files GL extracts to load into Board. It does not allow for exception maps (i.e. all data is mapped one-to-one except for the following). On-line documentation and Knowledge Base is limited. It should include all Customer Case call resolutions and Server installation requirements. Nexel is a good start, but needs to be on Rows, besides Columns. Also, there's a bug with only reading the 1st column. Next, we need formatting in DataViews (e.g. Cell level Underlines, Double Underlines, Changes in font, Bolding, Annotations, etc.). Another opportunity is Dependency Reporting for dynamic DataView Reports showing specified levels. Lastly, Class Attribute Filtering calculations (this may be available is some form, just haven't figured it out, yet.) Offering Advanced implementer training and certifications would be helpful.

Substitute for Excel as a Controlling Tool

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: We use it every day as our controlling tool. As i am a Developer I am able to build procedures, but I want to be better in doing that by visiting trainings in a regular period of time.

Vorteile:

- less error-prone than Excel (more stable) - clear demonstrative grafics - you are able to limit someones rights to change anything

Nachteile:

- sometimes shuts down without a reason - the wording is not always clear - the need of an additional software for presentations (convertion into Power Point as a Picture is not the best solution) - Export into Excel destroys the whole formatting

Since several years Board MIT provided the Tools for reporting, budgeting, planning and analysis.

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: The ability to actually see what you want from empty table; there are no limitations to the application to build.

Vorteile:

Open tool no limitations to what you want to do ; ability to see what is needed with no limitations. The time for development is short : you can rapidly see results Wide range of reports, tables and graphs can be made out of it Applications can be built, and modified several times without rewriting codes

Nachteile:

Perhaps the lack of a program to load flat files: I could not find a pre-written tool for reading ascii files.

BOARD Review by CFO of American Refining Group

5,0 vor 9 Jahren

Vorteile:

BOARD is an extremely powerful tool that is allowing us to more quickly analyze and manage our business. It is very user-friendly for creating new reports, dashboards and analyses, and we have expanded its use in numerous areas of the company. We find new uses for it nearly each day. Lastly, the support staff at BOARD is very responsive and great to work with. I have used multiple “business intelligence” tools in the past, and BOARD is, without a doubt, the best. I would 100% recommend this tool to businesses of all sizes and industries.

Nachteile:

Nothing of note; Product keeps getting better with each release.

First project was to ambitious

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: I want to create a few more projects before making up my mind.

Vorteile:

It is extremely configurable. It accepts data from almost any source. I like the final look, it is enough like excel that end users don't resist too much.

Nachteile:

Complex applications seem to become even more complex. Drilling into layers of configurations is a little confusing until I have spent enough time.

Great product, great value. More than BI.

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

It connects to virtually any data source and easily will produce dashboards enabling great analysis! You are limited by what you can imagine.

Nachteile:

There is a learning curve regarding the terminology and logic of the product, but that is more a result of changing the way you think about data.

Its very agile and flexible thats a huge plus for the business users. Looking forward to BOARD 10.1 and all other amazing releases set for this year.

Vorteile:

Flexibility and agility

Nachteile:

It requires a slight learning curve around the entities, relationships, cubes and the procedures. Training users is a slight tough task as there is no ready user manual available.

BOARD Review

4,0 vor 7 Jahren

Kommentare: Our initial project with BOARD was through a reseller and it was a difficult start for the product. However, now that we are direct with BOARD, the support has been tremendous and makes us want to master it so that we can fully utilize what it offers.

Vorteile:

We are early users for the product but the staff and even users are very helpful and are encouraging for how to learn to use it in many ways.

Nachteile:

No online training available - even just for tips and tricks
