I love what this allows us to do in enterprise reporting and performance improvement

What do you like best?

Working from core systems data to SSAS, to Calumo, to Excel, to web, to Office documents, to mobiles, action - quickly, with confidence and grace.

What do you dislike?

That there is always new data I would like to integrate - that's hardly a fault of Calumo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Talk to Calumo clients like yourself, and in your industry.

Go to a Club Calumo event and talk to other users.

When you consider the costs of alternatives, look carefully at the costs to administer, the training required, the licensing model that allows you to get the benefits out to all your people, and the flexibility in the presentation layer to do precisely what you can imagine you will require. We looked hard, Calumo came up as the correct answer, and that has been borne out in 2 years hard usage.

Look for a vendor whose Consultants can contribute to your business - in our business, Calumo Consultants are invited to project and team meetings from time to time, and are a hugely valuable sounding board for everything from metric design and usage, to change management.

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

Daily Operational and periodic interactive (commentary capturing) Reporting

A robust solution coupled with knowledgable consulting support

What do you like best?

Their managed service offerings. Good value with consulting staff who are very knowledgeable qualified accountants that draw on their work from other customers to suggest best practice and put in place a good end solution.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes consultant availability is hard as they are tied up with other clients, which is a business risk if you rely on them as a managed service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start small in what you setup and then grow it over time. Consider their consulting in the setup so best practice structure is in place from the beginning.

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

Implementation of project management reporting to allow greater transparency on capital works.

Introduction of dashboard reporting to bring high level financial information closer to end users.

What Corporate Performance Management (CPM) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!
