Great Data Visualization!

What do you like best?

The presales support was first rate! What other company will give you a proof of concept using your data before you sign any contracts! After the sale the support and contact did not drop off and a team member is always in contact making sure you are happy with the solution.

The team is also genuinely interested in your feedback in terms of making the solution better and more effective - they WANT information to in turn help their development efforts.

Training was very effective and the trainers have been wonderful. They are easy to follow and the manual and instructions have been written well.

What do you dislike?

You will find that data visualization is easy and you can SEE what your data is doing. We do wish that formatting was a little easier or there were additional options for formatting. The learning curve can be a little steep on the backend, especially if you do not have a dedicated technical resource. Be sure you are ready to take that on or have Halo set up that structure for you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your homework and ask lots of questions - but let Halo show you a proof of concept! It is amazing and you will realize what you are missing in analyzing your data. Know that the same support and commitment you receive during presales does not stop once you sign your contract - you will receive the same support months after!

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

We are looking for anomalies, exceptions, and trends instead of just browsing an excel spreadsheet of numbers. It is easy to see where issues lie and drill into those right away.

What do you like best?

Support from the point of sale and beyond. I have never been sold a product where the vendor kept constant contact even after the sale and install. Halo truly cares about their customers and their product, and we look forward to a long successful relationship with them.

Prism is extremely user friendly, drag and drop measures and dimensions to quickly and easily answer questions about your business.

Only software/solution to address data quality as a key part of the ETL process.

Solution experts who really know my business and our ERP system.

Training was exceptional.

Prebuilt templates to address industry specific needs.

What do you dislike?

While the visual front end is very easy to use and powerful, I do wish we had a little more formatting control. Especially around exported visuals to Excel or PDF. I would like to see a one page dashboard print option to give quick insight to users not wanting to dive into Halo.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Halo offers the complete package. From the backend date warehouse, Data cleansing, Cube Creation, predictive analytics, and a slick visual front end. If you don't believe me have them do a proof of concept with YOUR data! This is something most other vendors will not even entertain. What better way to show value from your BI software than to evaluate it with data and metrics you know. Do your homework and call references, Halo gets nothing but positive praises from anyone I have talked to who uses it.

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

With Halo we are able to quickly and easily analyze all areas of our business. From Revenue to Inventory Halo has allowed us to leverage our ERP data and take action. We are looking forward to continued benefits that can be gained through knowing and understanding our business through data and business inelegance.

Halo provides a quick visual on what issues management may want to investigate further. I really like that Halo provides an easy to understand interface that allows each user to quickly look at specific data they need without having to request from IT. I really like the ability to go back in time and look at specific activity. The Halo team have been super responsive and supportive. They have excellent follow up and are very knowledgeable about business processes.

The dashboards and view we used with a previous product were more of a macro view, while Halo allows us a more precision view into our business environment. We are able to utilize the information Halo provides in order to make business decisions quickly.

What do you dislike?

There really is not much I do not like. It has been easy for each of our employees to use.

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

We replaced our existing dashboards with the Halo product. The Halo dashboards are much more extensive and relevant. Each department is able to modify and update their dashboards and then share with other employees. It has been a great collaboration tool. We have realized several benefits including a reduced workload for our IT department on information requests. Our leadership team feels more empowered now to be able to drill down and view data on their own as the analysis drives them.

What do you like best?

Our previous platform died and we had Halo up in running in no time at all. Comes preloaded with adaptors for many systems like our ERP and CRM which made going live easy. Halo also offers more than just BI, but also predictive analytics and forecasting.

What do you dislike?

There's not much to dislike, but they'll need to continue address PowerBI and how they will play with it in the new Microsoft 365 environment.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They are a great team of people. The sales and support team have been the same team as the ones we first dealt with over 5 years ago.

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

Easy access to key data, quick to market with new reporting and dashboard requests from the business. Helping us achieve a single source of reporting truth for our business.

Halo Prism as a Data Visualization Tool

Reviewed On
Validated Review
Verified Current User
What do you like best?

The ease of view creation is great, once the initial learning curve has been overcome. The speed of loading the views is good, and the filtering of the data sets is generally easy to do. The UI is constantly improving and the HALO team appears to be making good strides towards making the UI easier and more intuitive.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve for understanding the views; that icons don't indicate the same type of meaning (ex. a menu-looking icon can indicate a menu or a select-all action) or that they look similar to standard icons but do different actions. Upgrading versions always seems to come with some extra headaches. Additional setup required to use the mobile app appears quite intensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good tool to visualize Analysis Services cubes; Administration is a bit on the tough end.

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

We are able to effectively visualize the data in our SSAS cubes for many roles within our organization. It is an effective tool for data discovery and analysis.

Browser agnostic, Ease of accessibility for Remote employees, Scheduled reporting, Simple, varied Charting functionality, Flexibility of using several types of data sources to combine data in one view

What do you dislike?

Pane sizing - views with a lot of measures run out of real estate. Time Dimension response when changing from saved view default.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Halo is a great reporting and business decision making tool. Choose Halo!

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

Every day we know where our sales are to budget, what the GP% is, for all 7 companies in our organization.

We know inventory levels, customer service levels, vendor service levels. Drill down - through capability allows us to pinpoint areas of concern quickly.
