"Best BI software"

What do you like best?

It has been of great help during the digital transformation of the industry we live nowadays, is really quick to execute algorythms and it also generates a clean report with most relevant information. Reports are neat, and can be saved for previous versions. What I really like about BOARD is the easy integration with databases from various platforms using its Data Readers (Ms SQL, Oracle, Excel, MySQL and so on)

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?

The user interface is not the best out there, and if you don't get familiarized with it, it can become tedious and boring. But beside that this has been the best BI software that I have ever used, it is fast and reliable.

Also another point I didn't liked is the limit in terms of cubes, and maybe BOARD can solve some problems in terms of execution speed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I really recommend BOARD for any type of bussiness, either if it is a recently created company or a long term company, this software is for anyone.

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

Overall, it has been of great help in the making of financial reports. With this we have been able to speed up the annual planning process and RETRIEVE ACTUAL ACCOUNTING DATA ON DAILY BASIS.

"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.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We have been using BOARD for a good time and I have experienced that it has helped us in various ways. From simple reports to predictive analysis it has proved itself an so I recommend everyone out there to use it. They also offer a free demo, go give it a try.

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

"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

You must use it !!! It is a software with an interface very intuitive that easy to use. Also you can ask for a demo and check that is a very useful software.

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

Board is a program that enables you to transfer, adjust, embed information in any mode and from any source, guaranteeing a customization of the screen perusing information, making the program simple to utilize and intuitive for clients. Also the dashboard application permits BOARD clients to make a completely adaptable ordeal, highlighting drill-down and bore through usefulness, and also a few unique kinds of information perception alternatives. By executing BOARD's information gathering and examination functionalities, organizations can see information pertinently that helps drive canny business choices.

"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.

If you are looking for a budgeting tool for a conglomerate , you can consider BOARD. Its features are simple to use and learning curve is fast so there is no problem in delivering a solution quick.

"All that you need for your B.I."

What do you like best?

The positive aspects of BOARD are really numerous, in particular I appreciated the graphic interface, simple to use and clear (you learn quickly in a maximum of 3 days of use).

Board allows you to reduce your work! automating various tasks such as generating reports.

It allows to analyze different data, unifying them as mysql, oracle, postgres but not only.

What do you dislike?

There are very few things I can complain about, and none of this affects the use of BOARD. I think the software is a little expensive but in the long term the benefit that comes from it will fully repay you.

Not easy to use at the beginning requires a minimum of practice but the support is always ready to help..

Recommendations to others considering the product

I absolutely recommend it with your eyes closed. The cost is not indifferent, but for our company, in the long term, it is turning out to be an excellent investment that certainly did not make us regret the purchase.

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

Thanks to BOARD, we have finally solved one of our company's biggest problems: manual generation of reports. Thanks to it they are now clear, simple without errors, and with a collection of data finally heterogeneous and diversified at the same time! This translates into lower costs and more time to devote to other activities ... really a nice savings.

"The Essential Tool for BI"

What do you like best?

I love this software because it allows you to have a 360 ° control of your Business Intelligence in an efficient and practical way. You can quickly and easily monitor performance with which the information is edited, organized and shared within the company allowing you to create clear reports, interactive and highly effective.

 

What do you dislike?

There is not much you can complain about but at first it might seem a difficult tool to use and not very user friendly, but with a bit of time you can understand how to best use all of its features at 100%. I find it a little expensive but in the long run the cost is amply repaid.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learning to use BOARD effectively will not only save you time and money, but will boost your BI performance. In addition, the support is prepared and ready to answer all the doubts you may have.

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

The main problem that has allowed us to solve BOARD has been that of not having to waste more time writing manually reports, often full of errors and often also unclear. Everything is now automated and the reports are clear, legible and with a much better presentation.

"Enhance Workflow"

What do you like best?

We frequently use BOARD at our company, at a user level and also at an administrative level. It can be quite intimidating at first, but after a lot of patience and practice it can significantly improve the workflow in the workplace.

The relieve and luxury of building complex reports and dashboards automatically through the software is extremely beneficial. The speed of completing tasks increases to a considerable degree and leads to a more productive work environment.

BI allows us to effectively plan and control information technology investments across different locations, business units and subsidiaries – allowing them to used for our business’s needs.

These features coupled together effectively reduce our required work, it’s very automated and reduces a lot of manual work we would have to otherwise do.

What do you dislike?

We haven’t identified many flaws with BI, although there are very insignificant issues such as importing large volumes of data can cause some problems with the dashboard and summary tables.

Also, after updating to the latest version of the software, we have experienced some small bugs and glitches which can cause some difficulty when we’re testing. This can slow down the speed of work as we need to wait for the next patch version which would resolve these bugs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Possessing a solid and persistent comprehension of your existing databases is highly recommended. It is crucial to understand what your data actually is before performing complex operations on them.

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

Using BOARD effectively improves the workflow in our workplace significantly. Importing and working with massive amounts of data is quite straightforward to deal with on BI. It allows us to work with data really quickly to produce workable solutions.

"Brilliant for Reports & Management"

What do you like best?

The ease of creating high volumes of reports and dashboard with massive amounts of data makes BOARD a very useful program. We find it to be a great replacement to traditional database and management systems such as MS Excel due to its endless functionalities. Our company uses BOARD as an all-in-one business management software, saving money and resources to learn several other softwares (which are a fraction of BOARD).

Data entry and data queries are super straightforward and quick. BOARD supports imports from various different platforms and it is compatible with databases such as MySQL. It's extremely handy and saves us from manually importing massive amounts of data. You can effectively run queries on this data without even knowing how to code. The automation of BOARD saves countless time and makes life a lot easier for us.

Other features we regularly make use of is automatic report building based on the data entry and produced graphs/tables. This saves us from manually writing up reports based on data that has been collected, the automated software will interpret the data and automatically create a report for you.

It's definitely THE single software for any business to have. It saves us an unimaginable amount of time and hours.

What do you dislike?

Complicated data and applications can become very complicated to run queries with and sort. It doesn't exactly help having a complicated database to begin with. They should help organise the structure of your existing data and refrain from overcomplicating it. There is definitely a way around this, it just requires a lot of time to get used to.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely put some time aside and learn how to use BOARD effectively. If you become a master of this software, it could ultimately change your entire workflow. It is definitely the most remarkable software I have used when it comes to project planning and management, but it's very confusing and requires a lot time to learn.

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

BOARD has made the management and organisation in our workspace a lot better, and improved the general workflow. It speeds up the process for all departments and saves us all a lot of time. We have easy access to client data to fulfil our requirements and so on.

"Software flexible para negocios rápidos"

What do you like best?

BI es una maravilla mundial. Las organizaciones en todo el mundo están utilizando instrumentos de detalle astuto para extenderse más allá de la oposición. A medida que el globalismo se convierte en un patrón monetario en expansión, las organizaciones de todos los tamaños sentirán los impactos provinciales que tendrá BI cuando se acorrala un mercado. Para mantenerse al tanto del cambio acelerado, muchos deben mejorar su interior para enfrentar lo imprevisto. En el momento en que los expertos se acercan a los datos que requieren, están listos para centrarse en mejorar su trabajo, en lugar de ocuparse de tareas irrelevantes. Esto es vital para la forma en que los trabajadores ven su propia ejecución, y puede ayudar a tener un efecto genuino en lo que es más importante para sus posiciones. La adopción de una estrategia basada en la información también abre las puertas a nuevas fuerzas motivadoras al compensar cómo los representantes mejoran todo lo que realmente importa los deseos pasados. En posiciones profundamente enfocadas, por ejemplo, las transacciones, la percepción de la información de ejecución en este sentido le da a la capacidad superior la oportunidad de establecer objetivos para su potencial más extremo. Un uso vital para BOARD es anticipar las consecuencias de una actividad comercial. Este patrón ascendente se denomina examen prescriptivo, y la ruta principal para que BI haga esto de manera viable es almacenar suficiente información registrada para extraer patrones clave del pasado. El acuerdo puede mostrar patrones pasados ​​para que un especialista pueda basar pronósticos o puede ofrecer propuestas para repetir ciertas actividades que impulsaron el progreso pasado. Con BOARD, las organizaciones pueden realizar un seguimiento minucioso de las mediciones clave para su examen. En lugar de saltar descuidadamente al cambio, la organización puede probar los cambios con precisión en un dominio controlado para que la información pueda demostrar si fueron efectivos antes de que afecten el problema principal.

What do you dislike?

El objetivo importante de BOARD es almacenar información pasada sobre los acuerdos de una asociación y descubrirla para que pueda otorgar licencias a expertos en liderazgo básico. Por otro lado, estos datos en general representan una pequeña parte de lo que las organizaciones realmente requieren para trabajar, aparte de su valor controlado. Si bien en diferentes circunstancias, es posible que el cliente no sienta entusiasmo por la información auténtica, la misma cantidad de sectores comerciales que la organización dirige están en la modificación de visitas. Otro impedimento de BOARD podría ser su calidad multifacética en el uso de la información. Tiende a ser intrincado hasta el punto de que puede hacer que las estrategias comerciales sean inflexibles de administrar. En la perspectiva de dicho prefacio, numerosos especialistas de negocios han anticipado que estas complejidades pueden finalmente estrangular a cualquier negocio. BOARD puede hacer que las configuraciones de negocios terminen siendo mucho más confusas. Al igual que cada innovación mejorada, la visión empresarial se estableció por primera vez teniendo en cuenta la capacidad de compra de las empresas ricas. De hecho, incluso hoy en día, el marco de BOARD no puede ser administrado por la mayoría de las organizaciones. A pesar del hecho de que, en los últimos dos años, los comerciantes han comenzado a ajustar sus administraciones a empresas medianas y pequeñas, sin embargo, la verdad del asunto es que un gran número de tales firmas no las ve como extremadamente fundamentales, debido a su gran cantidad de empresas. Calidad de doble cara. Numerosas organizaciones en la presente situación mecánica de ritmo rápido no son lo suficientemente silenciosas como para mantenerse firmes para la ejecución de BOARD en su asociación. Se necesita alrededor de un año y medio para que el marco de almacenamiento de información actualice totalmente el marco.

"Flexible and Fast - Board"

What do you like best?

What I like most about Board is that it does not need programming, so I can work autonomously without having to depend on a support behind. Data entry is very simple and can be imported from many different platforms. The automation of the functions to generate the reports saves time and money, with brilliant results and analyzing all the data in depth. It is very fast and allows to follow the development of the process at all times. The program support is the best I've seen.

What do you dislike?

It has a very slow learning curve, since it is different from what I was used to. At the beginning, the menus are quite complex and it is difficult to make them; however, once the operating structure is clear, the handling is fast and fluid.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good product, with a great technical support behind ready to solve all the doubts that may arise, but it must be borne in mind that it has a very slow learning curve and, after acquiring the product, it will take a while for the users They are completely familiar with it and can get all the juice.

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

Unlike other platforms, Board integrates several products in one, so it allowed us to manage all the tasks we were looking for with a single application. This facilitated the management of the data, allowing us to have a completely real vision of the analyzed information, without intermediate losses.

"Fast and Flexible - Board"

What do you like best?

The majority is self-explanatory. That is an exception when it comes to BI tools.

More complexity is still possible and allows a differentiation of reports. This is always important because, over time, people will want to have some standard reports that provide more / better data than those that can be obtained with basic knowledge. And this is where the great community comes in; The support on the pages of the plate by the users of the plate is excellent.

It is also very easy to configure data entry. This could solve many cases in which, otherwise, Excel reports are sent through the organization only to complete the data with the difficulty that the format must be maintained.

What do you dislike?

Board is a robust tool that requires a complete and adequate configuration. BOARD could use some additional visualizations within its capsules, since its competitors launch new graphics constantly through a crowdfunding strategy with advanced users and developers.

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

It helps consolidate data from different business units and departments to produce the required reports.

"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.

"Great Interface, Simple Reports."

What do you like best?

The interface is minimalistic and extremely easy to use. It is sustains aesthetically pleasing visuals with features. The reports are extremely easy to create, and immensely lower the workload on our employees.

What do you dislike?

The only downside I had with board is the required time into learning how to effectively use the software. It is rather difficult to get the hang of everything and use BOARD to it's full potential, however once you do it pays off with the amount of work that BOARD can complete with less stress.

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

BOARD integrates multiple programs into one software. This saves the subscriptions for each individual products, and also removes the hassle of learning using a separate software for each task. This cuts the amount of losses from the company.

"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?

It assists in consolidating data from different business units/departments to produce the required reports.

"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?

"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.
