"The Jedox Application is a very intuitive tool with a lot of flexibility."

What do you like best?

There are many great features to the Jedox Application. Some that have made my life easier include a very advanced ETL function that is built into the product, very easy to use reporting capabilities that can be spun up in minutes, and the ability to customize almost every aspect of the tool to fit your business needs.

What do you dislike?

I haven't had many issues with Jedox, but if I had to name one I would say the overwhelming amount of capabilities. There are so many different directions you can go with design because of all of the functionality. This may be a good problem to have, rather than being backed into a corner with other more rigid products.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a lot of great features with this tool that will make your life a lot easier. Mainly, speed of implementation and ease of use.

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

In the Computer Software industry we had an issue with the adjusted revenue calculation, but with Jedox we were able to execute the calculation due to its flexible nature. At a Higher Ed client we had an allocation calculation restriction, but were able to quickly resolve with Jedox and fulfill the clients request of a 5 year allocation breakout by month.

"Very powerful and easy tool"

What do you like best?

I like the flexibility of building models and reports with Excel add-in. This way I could reuse old Excel reports without much effort. Also liked the powerful built-in Data Integration capability - easy to set up even most complex needs.

Data integration was a breeze with a variety of standard formats including connection to Salesforce.com. I was able to do significant and complex data preparation and manipulation in the tool without writing any code.

I wrote only one snippet of script in a whole project --

if (_input1==0)

{

return _input1;

}

else

{

return _input1*1000;

}

What do you dislike?

Can't be used as the primary raw data entry tool. But then I guess that is what system of records are for. It does a great job of getting defined data inputs though from different people.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Jedox is an extremely powerful planning product. To make Jedox successful, you have a good clarity on your planning process. It has extremely powerful analytics and reporting capabilities, so don't limit your use to just planning or modelling but look for opportunities for broader reporting application.

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

I have utilized Jedox for Financial Reports & Sales Planning. Jedox is a great stress buster... building new reports is extremely easy. Making changes and debugging data or report issues is extremely easy with drill-through. The interface makes it easy to do step-by-step issue resolution with a visual map.

The key benefits of Jedox were that automating the most mundane parts and being able to focus on sharing and collaborating easily. Heavy lifting is done by the software and makes it easy to build new proactive reporting and modelling.

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

Thanks for letting us know!

"Innovative, agile, reasonable cost, low maintenance, and fast implementation"

What do you like best?

Jedox is a fast and low footprint system. it suits financial planning and analytics applications well. It is also very appropriate for performance management applications. It is innovative and nimble. It is developer friendly. Business professionals can easily implement the system without utilizing a large team of IT developers.

What do you dislike?

Documentation could be better. More user case studies and tutorials would be better although Jedox already has a large library of video tutorials that helps out a lot.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is definitely a professional grade software at a very reasonable price point.

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

Financial planning, budgeting, and analytics. We are able to implement a full-blown application with Jedox for our annual budgeting process with only 1 TI developer over a 3-month time period.

"Jedox - Should be a Shortlisted Vendor on Every Evaluation"

What do you like best?

Jedox has built an outstanding solution that competes and wins against both the traditional large enterprise incumbent vendors as well as the smaller, niche cloud providers. Combining one of the fastest engines on the market with embedded AI, a growing marketplace of pre-built model offerings, and affordable and flexible pricing, Jedox brings all of the required enterprise capabilities in a nimble, implementable platform for every type of Planning, Reporting, and Analytics.

What do you dislike?

As a European company who has enjoyed large scale success there, Jedox is relatively unknown in the North American market, however they're focused on building out their organization in a sensible and methodic way which will help them scale in terms of marketshare and mindshare. While this isn't a negative, it will take a short bit of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get past the hype of the super vendors as well as the highly marketed smaller guys trying to go IPO or stretch beyond their means. Jedox has great customers around the world, with users in the 10's of thousands within single companies. They're tried, true, and solid, and as a company, they have an incredibly approachable executive management team.

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

Jedox has significantly shortened the lifecycle for FP&A and Operations.

"Great tool for quick wins"

What do you like best?

I find Jedox to be a rather easy tool to implement and start. Also some consulting support is needed or at least strongly recommended the tool is not too complicated. Hard- and Software resource demands are small and there is not much special IT support required for a basic installation.

Jedox BI allows to quickly develop data input and output sheets via Excel or Jedox Web for standard transactions as well as easy to use one off analyzing views via Excel Add-In. For experienced users or consultants revolving data in- or outputs can be automated via the ETL (Export/Transpose/Load) tool

First business applications can be developed rather quickly and the system still can be developed further and even changed while already in operational usage.

What do you dislike?

Nothing is perfect, however, there is nothing in particular which I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make your plans what to achieve. Get in contact with a consultant and plan how to achieve it. Than try it out yourself using a test license. There is no big risk involved.

However, take support of a consultant and learn the basics from him via training on the job otherwise it is very likely that you will come to a stop very soon. Also the usage of Jedox requires dedicated knowledge.

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

We use it for Reporting, Analyzes and Planning in 9 European countries .

In the reporting area we upload (automated) accounting information from SAP on a monthly basis. Several standard reports offer easy to choose customizable (years, regions, products,...) standard reporting (Actual vs. Plan vs. Outlook) including balance sheet, P&L and cash flow for users.

Within departments ad hoc analyzes are carried out where necessary via Excel front end. Analyzes which took days before can now be provided within minutes.

The forecasting and planning process is supported by Jedox on a broad basis. Data is loaded from several sources. Some departments but in their planning data via interfaces. Salary costs are calculated automatically based on staff data. Rental costs are calculated automatically based on rent contract data. Asset write offs are imported from SAP. Some data is calculated based on parameters (costs per turnover, mĀ², pieces or working hours) and further data is input manually via the planning process to cover for impacts of projects or actions.

"Fantastic product with great and tight integration capabilities"

What do you like best?

User friendliness of the reporting and modelling studios. Powerful and easy to use Integrator/ETL module. Well documented Open API to deal with tight OEM product integration.

What do you dislike?

Documentation only in English (we deal with international organizations who would required documentation in French and other languages). Need more out of the box visualization capabilities. Need a query capability to directly interrogate relational data.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get advanced training on the modelling component to fully benefit from optimal cubes and rules design.

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

Reporting, Analysis and Dashboarding business requirements over financial performance data (Budget, HR spending, Acrivity-based Costing, etc.) centralized in a fairly complex Oracle database. Benefit is mostly to enable Finance people to be fully self-sufficient with the report design and publishing to their end-users..

"Great BI solution for Excel-based companies"

What do you like best?

Intelligence and analytics tools come and go, but no matter what, Excel seems to stick around. I liked that Jedox allowed me to leverage existing Excel spreadsheets without having to go through the sometimes agonizing process of converting them to the "correct" format. Because of this, it's easier for most users to pick up. I also like the integration with other visualization and BI tools (Tableau, Power BI, etc.)

What do you dislike?

I found that advanced use of Jedox was just beyond the capabilities of some users. It could be easier. This could be overcome by better online training and documentation (but it's not there yet).

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are a lot of BI solutions out there. Make sure you do your research. The familiar Excel-like platform make Jedox unique.

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

It's a solid BI tool. Like others, it allows you to gain insights from your business and financial data to make better data-driven decisions. I find tools like these essential in building strategy.

"user friendly, fast, user friendly"

What do you like best?

it is easily adaptable to existing excel reports. it retrieves the data fast.

What do you dislike?

When I make changes on the Jedox console on the web, there is no undo. So every action is performed immediately which can cause to lost of data in the system or maybe just delete an element by mistake without realizing.

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

Monthly reporting for a multi-divisional company. It reduces mistakes a lot as everything is uploaded into the system instead of using too big excel files with many links. It fastens the reporting for daily needs and enables to analyze data at the base level.

"Versitile and strong planning and analytic platform"

What do you like best?

When working with clients I'm able to rapidly prototype what their end solution will look like quickly to give them a feel for their future experience, workflow and benefits they will receive.

What do you dislike?

While I'm able to train people rather quickly on Jedox, I'm not able to easily find many who have prior experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Your success will depend on how well you analyse your needs and design your solution with the strengths of Jedox in mind to get the most out of the system.

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

Planning, forecasting, budgeting, analysis, dashboards, reporting in an efficient manner!

"Jedox is very excel-like."

What do you like best?

The excel add-in is a game changer, especially if you are already an expert with excel, that just makes it that much more marketable. Jedox processes and retrieves information quickly, which is useful. Quality + cost ratio line up perfectly.

What do you dislike?

There is not much room for remote training, however, they allow for extensive in person training.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is going to be very beneficial to larger companies, considering we were on the smaller, start-up end, it just didn't make sense budget wise.

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

Analytics, budgeting, and financial planning. We didn't go live with this one because it just wasn't for our company.

"Business Intelligence from my cell phone"

What do you like best?

I like that I can run what-if scenarios to look for patterns in our historical sales data.

What do you dislike?

The speed is not what I would like it to be and it hangs often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The setup is very straightforward and importing data is also easy. The insight gained by asking your own queries is amazing.

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

I keep track of customers and correlate previous sales issues and product comparisons. I have access to information that I did not have before so I can look at information in multiple ways.
