"Easy Reports and Insights"

What do you like best?

The interface is pretty easy to use and one can easily get used to it within a day or two. Also the UX is great, everything is within reach I can switch over to different reports within few clicks. Everything is organized and accessible for the same window.

I so much like BOARD is beacause it reduces the person's work. As before BOARD we would build reports on our own, I mean manually which now is easy to make with in few steps.

It has took BI to a new level and so happy with whole experience.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I could point out while using it. I can write few more points in favour but not againt it.

"BOARD, an incredible execution management arrangement !!!"

What do you like best?

BI is a worldwide wonder. Organizations over the world are utilizing astute detailing instruments to stretch out beyond the opposition. As globalism turns into an expanding monetary pattern, organizations of all sizes will feel the provincial impacts BI has when a market is cornered. To stay aware of quickening change, many must enhance inside to contend with the unforeseen. At the point when experts approach the data they require, they're ready to center around enhancing their work, as opposed to getting occupied by irrelevant assignments. This is vital to how workers see their own execution, and it can help have a genuine effect on what is important most for their positions. Adopting an information driven strategy likewise opens up open doors for new motivating forces by compensating how representatives enhance all that really matters past desires. In profoundly focused positions, for example, deals, perceiving execution information along these lines gives top ability a chance to set objectives for their most extreme potential. A vital use for BOARD is to anticipate the consequence of a business activity. This rising pattern is called prescriptive examination, and the main path for BI to do this viably is to store enough recorded information to haul out key patterns from the past. The arrangement can either show past patterns for a specialist to base forecasts with or it can offer proposals for rehashing certain activities that prompted past progress. With BOARD, organizations can painstakingly track key measurements for examination. Instead of jumping carelessly into change, the organization can test changes precisely in a controlled domain so the information can demonstrate whether they were effective before they hurt the main issue.

What do you dislike?

The significant target of BOARD is to store past information about an association's arrangements and uncover it so that it licenses experts in basic leadership. On the other side, this data by and large adds up to a little part of what the organizations really require to work, other than its controlled worth. While in different circumstances, the client might not have enthusiasm for authentic information the same number of business sectors that the organization directs are in visit modification. Another impediment of BOARD could be its many-sided quality in usage of information. It tends to be intricate to the point that it can make business strategies unbending to manage. In the perspective of such preface, numerous business specialists have anticipated that these complexities can at last throttle any business. BOARD can make business settings end up being significantly more jumbled. Like every single enhanced innovation, business insight was first settled keeping in thought the purchasing skill of wealthy firms. Indeed, even today BOARD framework can't be managed by the majority of the organizations. In spite of the fact that, merchants in the previous couple of years have begun adjusting their administrations towards medium and little measured businesses, however the truth of the matter is that huge numbers of such firms does not view them as exceedingly fundamental, for its many-sided quality. Numerous organizations in the present quick paced mechanical situation are not sufficiently quiet to sit tight for the execution of BOARD in their association. It takes around year and a half for information warehousing framework to totally actualize the framework.

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Use BOARD !!!"

What do you like best?

We observed BOARD to be a simple to utilize and greatly adaptable instrument that has enhanced our business forms. As a developer who might spend innumerable hours creating reports to meet the regularly changing business prerequisites, I was overwhelmed in the POC by the easy to understand interface and the simplicity to make reports so rapidly on the travel to meet our whole business needs. I have not made another report program since, as BOARD can do everything. Not exclusively is it a great device for making reports and dashboards, yet the guaging and planning capacities that permits compose back to 3D squares and the running of situations, makes it an across the board BI device. One element throughout the years that our business has grasped is the Excel Add-in highlight, and because of its simple to utilize interface, clients can run reports in Excel themselves. When hoping to cooperate with a BI programming merchant, we had a couple of key abilities that we were searching for in an answer. These abilities included:

- The item should be anything but difficult to setup and arrange and not require extensive task usage courses of events

- the item should have the capacity to engage the end clients to make dynamic perceptions to help the necessities of their business

- Support for the examination must not require a multitude of engineers or specialized staff to keep up the application.

A considerable lot of our clients are mid-showcase organizations that can't manage the cost of huge costly revealing arrangements, yet at the same time require the quality and ease of use factors that clients get from the more costly off the rack items. BOARD gave the greater part of this thus considerably more. Our clients start acknowledging esteem very quickly following the underlying execution, representation their business in manners they have never possessed the capacity to through powerful intelligent dashboards and reports. The item likewise offers our clients with an approach to rapidly stay aware of their evolving business. With BOARD, as the business changes and new inquiries should be asked, the item furnishes the topic specialists with the capacity to progressively make important perceptions to discover their answers. No requirement for report essayists when you have a controller or back office client who knows the correct things to ask to influence the execution of the association. With this item, gone are the times of the specialized business expert endeavoring to intrude on the demand from the business, and rather the business is currently making precisely what they require with little contribution from IT.

What do you dislike?

BOARD is a vigorous device that requires a far reaching and appropriate setup. It doesn't indicate what neglects to stack in detail from the Board Data Reader log. It doesn't consider both field and segments perusing in the meantime. We ought to never need to knead/control any documents GL concentrates to stack into Board. It doesn't take into consideration exemption maps. On-line documentation and Knowledge Base is restricted. BOARD could utilize a couple of increasingly extra perceptions inside its containers as its rivals discharge new visuals continually through a crowdfunding system with control clients and designers. It ought to incorporate all Customer Case call goals and Server establishment prerequisites. Nexel is a decent begin, yet should be on Rows, other than Columns. Likewise, there's a bug with just perusing the first section. Next, we require designing in DataViews. Another open door is Dependency Reporting for dynamic DataView Reports demonstrating determined levels. Ultimately, Class Attribute Filtering estimations. Offering Advanced implementer preparing and accreditations would be useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You only need a computer and a network connection. And don´t worry if you have any problem, the technical support will give you the solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Board gives me an extensive variety of Business Intelligence capacities, for example, announcing, multi-dimensional examination, impromptu questioning and dashboarding, coordinated with the capacity to oversee and track all execution arranging and control work processes including planning, arranging and anticipating to gainfulness investigation.

"Board on the board"

What do you like best?

La mayoría es autoexplicativa. Esa es una excepción cuando se trata de herramientas de BI.

Más complejidad aún es posible y permite una diferenciación de informes. Esto siempre es importante ya que, con el tiempo, las personas querrán tener algunos informes estándar que brinden más / mejores datos que los que se pueden obtener con los conocimientos básicos. Y aquí es donde entra la gran comunidad; el soporte en las páginas de la placa por parte de los usuarios de la placa es excelente.

También es muy fácil configurar la entrada de datos. Esto podría resolver muchos casos en los que, de lo contrario, los informes de Excel se envían a través de la organización solo para completar los datos con la dificultad de que se deba mantener el formato.

What do you dislike?

Board es una herramienta robusta que requiere una configuración completa y adecuada. BOARD podría utilizar algunas visualizaciones adicionales dentro de sus cápsulas, ya que sus competidores lanzan nuevos gráficos constantemente a través de una estrategia de crowdfunding con usuarios y desarrolladores avanzados.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ayuda a consolidar los datos de diferentes unidades de negocio y departamentos para producir los informes requeridos.

"flexible fast Business Software"

What do you like best?

The flexibility and speed of the software. You can customize everything the way you need it. Queries run at high speed and you get the results you need very quickly.

The administration of the software is very easy.

You can import data from many different sources. We use it to analyse data from Oracle, MS SQL, mySQL, but also simple CSV and Text files. In Board you can combine all these sources.

You can use automatic functions to generate repeating reports.

What do you dislike?

Limitations in the time functions, eg. For example, multiple dates on a value are difficult to implement. Similar to records with a validity between two dates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it and form your opinion. We visited several systems and Board we like the best.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Previously, statistics were generated from multiple systems. Today only from board. Thus, the source of the data is clearly defined. Everyone is talking about the same data.

"The most inspiring and creative BI system I've ever used"

What do you like best?

Oncve understood, BOARD is so simple to create new models on and it inspires confidence to really try to create something that does not yet exist.

The versatility of the software means that complex models can be created which provide users with the ability to enter their own data, stored in the OLAP db but also saved to the RDB. This makes available all of the data from one system in another system.

What do you dislike?

I initially disliked the learning curve of the software, but it was really worth it. Once it is understood how BOARD works and why, modelling becomes intuitive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Identify your actual needs and discuss thoroughly with the BOARD sales team how BOARD will benefit you. Ensure that you have a BI team to work alongside the consultants to ensure that the knowledge share takes place.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BOARD software has given us the ability to provide our external clients with tools for them to manage and view their own property holdings.

"BOARD delivered on our expectations, on time and on budget"

What do you like best?

I like that the toolset can be used for many different business processes. It can replace passing Excel spreadsheets around, and provide effective reporting. Rather than buying several different products, we decided to purchase BOARD and slowly update our business processes to use it where appropriate. As folks are becoming more familiar with it, they're comfortable using it in place of Excel.

What do you dislike?

There are many features and options. It can sometimes be overwhelming to decide which features and options to use on which screens. Having a clear roadmap is important. There are so many things we could do with the tool, that if we didn't have clear direction on where to focus first, we would go down a rabbit hole.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Rather than investing in 10 different products, buy BOARD and use it across the company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted to provide a portal for our KPI scorecarding, controlled by Finance. As we change our strategic goals and KPIs for each business unit, we do not need to rely on IT to make any programming changes.

"BOARD as Management information System combining it's BI capabilities with CPM"

What do you like best?

- Very flexible software that can be setup in a couple of days

- User can setup it's own reports either in BOARD directly or in the Excel/Powerpoint environment

- The smaller size of the vendor allows a good relationship with consultants, technicians and marketing experts from the headquarter

- Good working interface to SAP, CRM MS Dynamics and Cognos TM1

- Very logical setup of the database structure

What do you dislike?

- The Microsoft Office addin especially is very powerful tool, on the other hand especially the Excel addin causes some crashes ad support some limited amounts of layouts

- When purchasing the software as a BI tool it has to be considered the need of a datamart.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Interface to many different external data sources.

We use it for our whole product sales, orders, stocks and margin analysis on consolidated level (25 reporting units).

"You must use it !!!"

What do you like best?

As an entire BI arrangement, BOARD enables a designer to effortlessly make the structures required to assemble to a great degree ground-breaking and quick information models by utilizing 'sparsity' - the technique for figuring the real space required for 3D square protests. An incredible quality in demonstrating is the capacity to rename and change connections on the fly. With a consistent and extremely visual interface, BOARD is a wonderful domain to work in,which upgrades efficiency. BOARD can give end clients the capacity compose back to 3D shapes and make and change elements. This capacity makes the production of work processes and security forms conceivable; a chief can include clients and decide their level of access without coming back to the engineers. constant powerful geo-outlines take into consideration relevant maps to be made. BOARD have now opened the BOARD Community where clients can make inquiries in gatherings and help different clients. Case information models can be transferred and additionally related documentation and recordings. The people group site is outstanding amongst other gatherings I have ever utilized and the network individuals are plainly enthusiastic about the product, and in addition exceptionally proficient.

What do you dislike?

The software can be somewhat overpowering now and again. There are many extravagant highlights and capacities. Choosing when and where to utilize them can be somewhat dubious. People require an innovative style to assemble screens. For somebody who needs a controlled announcing condition, this probably won't be the best fit. These apparatuses are exceptionally configurable and adaptable. For cutting edge information laborers and experts, it's an extraordinary fit. For people who simply need to see a report, it may be a lot. The web interface is by all accounts showing signs of improvement now, so I anticipate that this will improve. For somebody who simply needs to login and see one report, I'd like the framework to be super-simple to utilize.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My greatest proposal for any organization investigating BI arrangements is to initially make sense of what it is you are endeavoring to achieve. Set a few objectives and destinations, and record your agony focuses. From their you can construct a rundown of capacities that will address the necessities of the organization. When this is finished, work with various sellers to assess every one of the instruments against the necessities of the association. Making a scoring framework with weighted midpoints is constantly suggested as a few capacities could easily compare to others. Toward the end, when you are through, look at the scoring you ought to have a determination that will bolster a bearing for your organization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have utilized a few endeavor BI frameworks and BOARD is by a wide margin the most energizing, fun and legitimate framework I have ever utilized. It makes work genuinely agreeable and gives an incredible feeling of fulfillment when the engineer finds something new constantly.

"I think it's a very interesting product . "

What do you like best?

Software is easy to install and backup is simple.

What I like most is how quickly you can create models of information and that with the same product can use busines intellegence and performance management. With the same tool I can control actuals and budget. The fact that BOARD is truly one product. We have many customers that need planning and forecasting capabilities but also true business intelligence, dashboards and visualisation. BOARD enables us to deliver these solutions within one product with the customer only having to purchase one license and have one skillset.

What do you dislike?

At the moment I cannot think of anything that is having a major impact in a negative way to our BOARD deployments across our varied customer base. I look forward to the web client when HTML 5 is released.Maybe reporting schedules should be more dynamic and easy to use, making simpler copy and paste from excel spreadsheets .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Board is highly recommended and is following a very favorable evolution process for the use of future users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Board for daily/monthly information management purposes and budget reporting. This system is linked to other applications within the company, so it allows to compare different dimensions of the data (actual, LY, forecast, budget) and offers different options to manage a deeper business analysis.

"Quick intro, nice features when digging deeper"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to get into and so it allows a great self service BI. Users can just jump in. Most of it is self explaining. That's quite the exception when it comes to BI tools.

More complexity is still possible and allows for a differentiation of reports. This is always important as people will, in time, want to have some standard reports that provide more/better displayed data than what can be achieved with basic knowledge. And here is where the great community comes in; support on the board pages by board users is excellent.

It is also very easy to set up data input. This could solve many cases where otherwise Excel reports are sent accross the organisation just to fill in data with the difficulty that the format needs to be maintained.

What do you dislike?

It seems that many of the newer features are developed as islands. Sometimes they lack integration with the rest of the system. What comes to mind is the for computations of data there are "column algorithm", "nexel formulas", "rules", "analytical functions" just for the data display. One needs to be knowledgeable when to use what and they have sometimes unexpected interactions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ensure you know the needs of the users. Do you have many users that would like to get off Excel? Is there a need to standardise current Excel reports? Then Board is a perfect choice keeping costs and necessary knowledge low.

If you expect your users to analyse data themselves and adapt existing reports to current needs then also Board is a very good choice.

Board would be the wrong choice when it comes to pixel perfect reports. If your users don't need to modify the report layout or quickly drill down into deeper levels, then maybe Board is not necessary.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At this stage we mostly review sales data. Board allows for much easier drill down functionality than what would be possible with Excel based reports. In comparison to bigger suites such as from IBM Cognos or Microsoft (SSAS, SSRS, SSIS) development is much quicker to get first results to the screen and the decision makers.

"BOARD is a robust CPM & BI platform that has impressive scalability"

What do you like best?

BOARD has the ability to load and design multiple data models with the flexibility to add lines and additional components in a easy to use and intelligent manner. The ability to change the data model and modify as you go provides a perfect solution for ever changing business needs. The visuals are easy to read and the current and future web versions that are yet to be released are incredible.

What do you dislike?

BOARD is a robust tool that requires a comprehensive and proper setup. BOARD could use a few more additional visualizations within its capsules as its competitors release new visuals constantly thru a crowdfunding strategy with power users and developers. The desktop version feels a bit dated with the look and feel of Office 2013. The new web version and the upcoming releases are expected to resolve a vast majority of these issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When choosing BOARD, choose the cloud version (vs. on premises). BOARD is developing and putting a lot of resources into its web based platform with new and upcoming versions that will likely outpace the onpremise desktop version. The new and upcoming releases are impressive, especially the 11.0 upcoming version. When implementing, look at its multi-functionality and allocate appropriate headcount with the right skills to maximize the deployment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

BOARD offers our company the ability to update our financials quickly and provide other company insights in a fairly short period of time. Problems we intend to solve in the near future involve monitoring and making decisions with regards to our production time, defects, and overall up time within our manufacturing facility. We intend to become more automated, efficient and profitable. We believe we'll have reduced a significant portion of time with the extraction and development of tools and spend significantly more time on the analysis piece. We will be looking into using the predictive analytics portion in the near future.

"More productive and can do away with manual linking in excel files to consolidate data."

What do you like best?

Assist in consolidating data and produce reports.

What do you dislike?

The followings are more for feedback purpose:

When there is a lot of data/calculations involved, the system tends to slow down, processing speed is affected and also it is very dependent on the internet speed.

It is an off the shelf system and thus requires a lot of customisations in house. May be it should introduce some preset common templates for use by industry in market.

There should be some improvement on the formatting once the data is export in excel format. Currently, in the exported excel file, all are set to be "text" format and it requires a fair bit of housekeeping in cell formatting etc before it can be used as a normal file like other excel files.

In addition to the current "per license" fee base, may be should introduce more economical package like packages for 4 users, 6 users etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product

BOARD is useful and effective if:

- the user has a good IT support team in house

- there is a lot of data to be consolidated and analysed in different report formats

- there is a way to speed up the system processing time when there is a lot of data

- there are predefined templates for those commonly used reports/set-ups based on those common industries in market

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The flexibility of creating reports and then related charts and exporting and using it in excel. The data is clean and easy to use.

The complexity of building some reports will take a little programming training and understanding. It is not so intuitive for complex reports for even a power user. You have to get the training and then it is easier. Their helpdesk is always friendly and supportive.

For the price and product features, it is definitely worth considering its use.

"Does the Job with knowledge pushing it along"

What do you like best?

I really like the ability to compare multiple databases at times, while being able to make easy to read capsules for end users. I really enjoy that I am able to make data readers using SQL, as I come from a heavy SQL background.

What do you dislike?

Procedure performance sometimes takes too long with large nightly batch updates. This makes testing very hard to do in a timely fashion at work. Some features can seem buggy at times, but seem to be improved per new version.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a a strong understanding of your current databases, without having knowledge of these data-sources you will highly struggle with creating reports. T

"Sencilla e intuitiva"

What do you like best?

Lo que más me gusta de Board es que no necesita programación, por lo que puedo trabajar de manera autónoma sin tener que depender de un soporte detrás. La entrada de datos es muy sencilla y se pueden importar desde muchas plataformas diferentes. La automatización de las funciones para generar los informes permite ahorrar tiempo y dinero, con unos resultados brillantes y analizando todos los datos en profundidad. Es muy rápido y permite seguir el desarollo del proceso en todo momento. El soporte del programa es de los mejores que he visto.

What do you dislike?

Tiene una curva de aprendizaje muy lenta, ya que es distinto a lo que estaba acostumbrada. Al principio, los menús son bastante complejos y cuesta hacerse a ellos; sin embargo, una vez que se tiene clara la estructura de funcionamiento, el manejo es rápido y fluido.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es un buen producto, con un gran soporte técnico detrás dispuesto a resolver todas las dudas que puedan surgir, pero hay que tener en cuenta que tiene una curva de aprendizaje muy lenta y que, tras adquirir el producto, trascurrirá un tiempo hasta que los usuarios estén completamente familiarizados con el mismo y puedan sacarle todo el jugo.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A diferencia de otras plataformas, Board integra varios productos en uno, por lo que nos permitió gestionar todas las tareas que buscábamos con una única aplicación. Esto facilitó la gestión de los datos, permitiéndonos tener una visión completamente real de la información analizada, sin pérdidas intermedias.

Usamos el producto para varias de nuestras subsidiarias y ofrecemos soluciones para nuestros clientes.

What do you like best?

We selected BOARD over major players in the Financial Planning space due to it's amazing flexibilty in terms of creating whatever structures suite your business setup, ease and speed of implementation with highly trained consultants and Cost Effective setup where prices are transparent and no hidden or additional costs. BOARD suites all organizations and is a tool to fully integrate your planning process with a whole host of financial and business processes. BOARD transforms businesses.

Given the huge flexibility, it might mean the continuous need of a BOARD consultant which could strains budgets. Something which should be considered with smaller clients

Con pochissima esperienza, su Board è possibile creare dashboard impressionanti e ricchi di funzionalità che vanno ben al di là di quello che ho visto con molti altri prodotti.

What do you dislike?

Ci sono ancora alcuni aspetti di Board che hanno bisogno di lavoro, come miglioramenti della GUI che darebbero semplicemente un'esperienza utente migliore. Molte delle limitazioni, come le funzionalità di personalizzazione dei grafici, sono state affrontate nelle versioni più recenti.

"Board for BI & CPM"

What do you like best?

Board it's an all-in one toolkit that allows User to cover all the business needs. Using a unique software a user can manage data, calulate figures and create all kind of reports. Any user can create his own application without an hard programming training.

What do you dislike?

Board is not really integrated with other system in terms of exporting data: txt file is the main solution. No problem importing data with ODBC protocol available for all data source but is not the same for exporting a big amount of data.

Every release should be 100% compatible wth older version and should only contains improvements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Board is a very user fliendly and flexible application to create any kind of application to cover business needs. As consultant we prefre to work close to the customer to have a prefect collaboration, implementation and tranferknowledge in order to make customer able to maintein the application.

The performance is very good even with relatively large data volumes. The web frontend can be made available "on-the-fly" for all users. The database as a whole is extremely flexible.

What do you dislike?

At one point or another, BOARD is a bit cumbersome to handle. Especially the report design (PDF documents) is always a problem. One or the other graphics function should be absolutely contemporary in design. In some areas a very small-scale procedure is necessary.

"A very impressive product"

What do you like best?

Probably my favourite aspect of Board is the slickness of the presentation, with very little experience it's possible to create impressive and feature rich dashboards that go way beyond what I've seen from a lot of other products, and this is something which is only getting better and better in the new versions they're releasing.

The second thing I really like is the drill-down functionality - any table or chart can be drilled into by the end-user to explore the data which makes up the figures shown with just a couple of clicks, not only does this add hugely to the user experience, but it has also drastically reduced the number of queries we get regarding data provenance and completeness.

What do you dislike?

There are still some aspects of Board which need work, most are actually fairly small things such as GUI improvements which would simply give a better user experience (most noticeably at the back end for the developer). Many of the limitations such as chart customisation features have been addressed in the most recent releases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have large datasets and you're looking for a tool which will allow you to surface that data in meaningful and easy to use ways, you could do a lot worse. I've found Board to be quicker than most other tools both for loading large datasets and for subsequently reporting on them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As with most companies increasing data visibility and encouraging proper analysis are our primary goals, historically BI has often been treated as little more than an extension of source system reporting in our company, however using Board has enabled us to really hammer home to our users just how valuable proper analysis can be, and how much easier it can make their jobs at time. We've also finally managed to get a consolidated global picture of our client base without the need for a lot of manual number crunching and enormous Excel spreadsheets, something which is already paying huge dividends in terms of understanding how our client base varies by global region and the potential opportunities that offers for leveraging existing relationships.

"Easy to use, stylish to the eyes"

What do you like best?

Software is easy to install and backup is simple.

Support from BOARD is fantastic; always returning with solutions for both server and application questions.

There is permission control where data access can be set to different groups of users.

Accounting periods can be locked after each import which prevents accidental overwriting of past data.

What do you dislike?

Data import error messages can be improved to provide more information on why a record failed to get imported.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is the tool for pretty presentation and is sufficient for non-technical users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We lack a good presentation of consolidated data to customers and senior management and BOARD's slick graphics solved that. It allows various graphical presentation using the same set of data and the drill-down of details can be done from the reports directly.

Tabulated data can be printed and exported to excel directly.

What do you like best?

Endless possibilities for planning and reporting, analytics and visualisation - all in one tool. No need to switch from a planning environment to analytics and BI. Seamless, powerful and simple to adopt by end users.

Not a lot. If you like pure drag and drop, there are slight differences, but no showstoppers.

Improves visualization of data loading errors, specifying the error field.

Social sharing is highly successful in the mobile part, it would need to develop the same for the user who is not mobile

We were introduced to BOARD after many years of experience with using alternative multidimensional budgeting, planning and reporting solutions.

What do you like best?

The only solution that allows a real focus on the value of data by combining traditional enterprise BI with more value based use cases. There are feature rich dashboards that which allow quick deployment of information that adds value, all of which achieved without a heavy reliance on IT & technical support functions allowing the deployment of proof of concept, data discovery and other solutions very quick and agile.

The IT strategic challenges it brings by being different - many organisations find it difficult to categorise Board against other large vendor BI solutions and therefore cannot understand the business & value driven approach & capability.

"Business intelligence in a Retail Omni channel Enviroment"

What do you like best?

Board truly is an end user tool - we run it over 4 companies and have 8 databases but only need two people in support. The users are self sufficient in designing their own reports and integrating the information with ease. It is very fast even over vast amounts of data and the users love seeing their reports appear in seconds rather than waiting hours for their results to be displayed. I would strongly recommend trialing this product to experience just how quick and simple the implementation can be . It was so refreshing to use a product that actually do what it says on the tin and that does it so well.

What do you dislike?

Paper based reporting and print formatting can be a bit limited - but as most people use this interactively , so not a massive issue as on screen design is very flexible

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have designed an automated broadcast solution to over 400 remote stores and cut the weekend processing time down from 16 hours to 2. Some reports have gone from taking 45 minutes to less than 10 seconds to run. It adapts easily to changes in our business processes. It has allowed us to create separate multi dimensional database solely for data interrogation that that is automatically populated from the main transaction system. This means that hundreds of users can access their reports without any impact on our core operational system .

"Delivering CPM and BI solutions"

What do you like best?

The fact that BOARD is truly one product. We have many customers that need planning and forecasting capabilities but also true business intelligence, dashboards and visualisation. BOARD enables us to deliver these solutions within one product with the customer only having to purchase one license and have one skillset.

Most BI products have "drill through" but BOARD also has "drill anywhere" enabling the user to interrogate the data at every level across all dimensions with a click of a mouse button. This really does help our customers looking at all numbers at both high and low level detail across the entire business.

The product is easy to use both as a developer and end user with no coding required. Importing data is simple to do using the ETL tool within BOARD. IT really is very easy to quickly create content that improves business decisions.

What do you dislike?

At the moment I cannot think of anything that is having a major impact in a negative way to our BOARD deployments across our varied customer base. I look forward to the web client when HTML 5 is released.

"The easiest way of building your own analytical reports"

What do you like best?

Board is an efficient BI tool that also allows budget reporting to business controllers. The most valuable function of Board is an easily understandable report building process, by choosing the info cubes that have to be analyzed. Data are automatically updated when information is changed in the source, so it also allows to create ad hoc reports with last figures uploaded for different business analysis.

What do you dislike?

Overall, Board is working properly for all business requirements within the company. Maybe reporting schedules should be more dynamic and easy to use, making simpler copy and paste from excel spreadsheets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Board for daily/monthly information management purposes and budget reporting. This system is linked to other applications within the company, so it allows to compare different dimensions of the data (actual, LY, forecast, budget) and offers different options to manage a deeper business analysis.

"Review Board 9.04"

What do you like best?

Most CPM solutions are limited in the number of dimensions and the number of records in a dimension. With Board I don't have this l can configure Board as any other BI project with lots of dimensions and I can have an item dimension with 3000 items without performance issues.

What do you dislike?

In other CPM solutions I can create a calculation in a dimension e.g. percentage of sales or Actual versus Budget. In Board you create this in a dataview but you have to do this for every dataview again. It would be nice if you can create calculatons in your model and use them where needed.

Board 8 is very easy to implement and use. I really appreciate the formulas, to make calculations with data coming from different blocks => only a + b. No need to be a software engineer !

What do you dislike?

In excel, with the board layout, I would appreciate to have the data used in the filter in hidden cells, in order to make formulas (for exemple : month, period, store's name...)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Now with Board we are able to precisely monitore our results and build a more precise budget

"The easiest and most comprehensive BI tool "

What do you like best?

The simple drag and drop ability to build complex dashboards, charts and reports makes it easy for any staff member to analyse data. The do it yourself style eliminates the dependence on IT teams and data analysts to build reports. This is especially useful for top executives when they want to analyse data and make quick strategic business decisions.

What do you dislike?

Not truly cloud yet. Works great on the local server client environment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try a POC "Proof Of Concept" implementation with Board. You'll find out for yourself.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Benchmarking comparisons allows us to identify cost vs revenue %age of each facility and take remedial actions in time. Budgeting, Forecasting and "what if" scenarios help complete the budgeting processes in less than half the time it used to take before. We have many more hours of the week on hand now to use it more productively.

"A very flexible and powerful tool"

What do you like best?

Board is efficient software solution easily understandable that can provide first user/customer experience in a very limited turnaround time. Make the project easier to manage as business benefits are made visible quickly.

Data is made core of the system with highly customizable dashboards and with limited amount of development

Board brings a new paradigm to IT and business. Needs some good education how this app (different from the other big names) will sit in the new information landscape: in terms of how and who will support and manage it.

Since data is at the core. It is very important to have a joint effort reflexion (IT, Business and Board experts) to establish best data scheme so Board will be leveraged at its best

Recommendations to others considering the product

To leverage Board potential, expertise of this tool needs to be developed in-house

"An excellent product for Budgeting, Forescasting and Reporting"

What do you like best?

The real value is in the Data Integration and Data Entry Capability. Reporting is only as good as the data being used the ability to integrate data from multiple sources and enter data for what-if analysis etc.
