"One of the necessities of a "smart" company"

What do you like best?

- Performance is optimal and runs without must fuss or hassle

- Reliable tool which does not act up and gives us a peace of mind when using

- It allows integration with multiple databases and formats, and this includes excels, mysql, mssql, etc)

- Report generated are pleasant and easy to understand

- Good looking UI which makes it easy for us to understand intuitively and quickly, despite coming in fresh and not knowing anything much about this BI tool

What do you dislike?

There are actually not many things that i dislike. But if i were to name one, it would be the vast number of features provided in this tool. It has so many functions that if you do not go through the documentation or online video tutorials, you might never be able to understand them fully, let alone implement them successfully.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this tool to big companies with massive amounts of data and massive amount of analysis to be done using the data. For small companies, i feel that this tool is too powerful and does too many things which your business may not even need or require.

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

BOARD allows my company to go one step closer on being a smart company. It helps us analyzes data and generate them into reports, it also helps to speed up several processes which were all done manually in the past. It really cuts down on the manpower which we required in the past.

"One of the most pleasant looking BI tool i have ever used"

What do you like best?

First of all, the UI is one of the most pleasant looking systems i have ever used. We have tried multiple other software but nothing is close to this. Coupled with clean and intuitive buttons and functions, we have grown so used to BOARD that we will not think of changing to other BI tools. In the technical aspect of implementation, we have tried a couple of other tools. We were not confident of implement this in the beginning due to the bad experiences. However, with the support from the team from BOARD, we were able to plan our key milestones properly in a "phase" approach. Once you get the hang of the tool, you will be off to use the tool without any external assistance!

Not only did we use it as a BI tool, it also helps us with the corporate performance management. When the timesheet is updated by staff, it is now immediately viewable through the reports that we can generate on the fly. This actually helps out a lot for our HR department.

Lastly, as a product which is out in the market for a while, the community from public forums is large enough to handle simple questions. Simple googling solves our technical problems in minutes.

What do you dislike?

With the ability to customise many features, there comes a steep learning curve in the beginning. It does not help much due to the fact that BOARD handles OLAP processes differently. Also, you must be able to identify functions which you can use, and functions which you should not use in certain pages.

Recommendations to others considering the product

BOARD is definitely one of the better tools and better looking systems out in the market. If you are looking into in-depth analysis of your data and easy to use systems, BOARD is the one to look out for!

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

In the beginning, we are using this for financial reporting. However, looking at the features which BOARD provides, we slowly transited to using this as a BI and CPM tool.

What Business Intelligence Platforms solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"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?

At Easesolutions Pvt. Ltd. we have to get insights of various data available which we used to do by creating reports manually. Now after BOARD this whole process in automated and we no more need to waste time in manually putting everything together but focus more on the insights and improve results. We use this for both us for and our clients. We also have recommended it to many of our clients.

"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.

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.

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.

"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. With it, they can identify EPC work, identify leases that are approaching renewal, calculate future rental income and identify individuals to discuss up coming business and points with

"Board review"

What do you like best?

It has given freedom to customize features. I don't need to adapt to this product but can use it as per my convenience. Sparse method of organising data and usage comes in handy. Uploading data models and analysing is easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Lack of related forums online can be a bit dull sometimes. Most of the features are easily understandable but if you're stuck on something then it really needs some definite effort to get it resolved either by queries or doing extensive research.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a useful product. Most of the features are convenient to use. Just make sure you understand it completely before jumping on to hard usage because if stuck some resolutions may take some time

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

Complete Bi solution. It was easy to setup and start so that's on the plus side. Don't need programming skills to get used to it. Reporting and analysis is customizable and a good feature.

What do you like best?

Easiness to create powerful and complex structures in a very fast manner is what I like the most in BOARD. have been using BOARD for a very long time, since the beginning, it has very performance efficient features for data preprocessing report generation and data model generation. Visualization is much more clear and intuitive. UI of BOARD is very important making it stand out among other similar tools. Not only that support from the BOARD team always solves my issues and difficulties performing any new kind of tasks in BOARD. Ultimately, This is a complete package for me to cop up better with my BI tasks.

What do you dislike?

Board is continuously improvising its features and adding new widgets in it. So there are not that big issues in it I have to complain about; however, some repeated tasks I have to do in order to reflect that changes in all the reports generated by it. It should be like I change once, and that should be reflected all over in other reports too.

Recommendations to others considering the product

BOARD is effective in terms of performance and it is having a number of features inbuilt for that you don't have to depend on any third party tool. Also, price is quite considerable for the service it provides and the functions it has.

Board isn't generally incorporated with other framework as far as sending out information: txt document is the fundamental arrangement.

What do you like best?

I did not really use Business Intelligence tools before and i was surprised by the awesome user interface BOARD boats which was quick to grasp and the reports generated by the BOARD algorithms are also great looking. It has support for so many types of databases CSV , Excel sheets to name but a few. Inputting the data on a database is also very easy as it allows for sharing of inputs across the team to be filled by them and the data generated is shared automatically !

"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.

"For BI, BOARD is a powerful and feature-rich tool"

What do you like best?

Very minimalist design approach with great intuitiveness makes BOARD's UI one the best among similar tools. Apart from the UI, CPM part of it, also provides very good help. When Team members put any updates immediately, the it can be displayed in dashboard; which is great in my case. Also, support and community of BOARD are major aspects in the popularity of BOARD. It provides efficient and proper ways to do things in this tool.

What do you dislike?

There are not any major concerns, However, I believe if the documentation contains some more info-graphics to describe the scenarios then that would be much more beneficial.

Recommendations to others considering the product

BOARD is a complete package of functionalities you ever need in BI. Also because of good support and community tasks become much easy to follow. BOARD will surely give profit by saving a lot of time wasting in manual configuration.

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

"Board BI for flexible and excellent reporting tool"

What do you like best?

Our team moved on from excel reporting to utilizing Board as a means of reporting the . One particular aspect of Board which my team and I really liked is the ease of implementation with multiple data sources and its ability to generate our required reports with much ease. Through the webinars and documentations we were able to make full use of its capabilities and tailor the product to suit our needs.

The interface was pleasant to look at and easy to understand for beginners. A big plus point.

We make use of the BI platforms and conduct predictive analysis on our database, and found that their analytics was very beneficial and allowed us to implement corrective measures to improve our results in our department

When there are technical questions that requires guidance, we could also refer to their community page at times to find answers to queries similar to ours.

What do you dislike?

The initial configuration to integrate Board with much of our data sources was tedious at first and reading of the documentations did not help much as they do not provide good enough guidance on our specific issues at hand. Some improvements in that area would be recommended.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are many tools that provides similar services as BOARD, but for what BOARD offers here as a all in one package. I believe it does its job pretty well. Make use of the free demo and get in contact with the team to understand if it fits your needs

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

We use the Board to improve our processes within the department through the data analytics feature. It was able to take in multiple data sources and churn out the reports in a pleasant report for our management to review.

Easy to integrate with databases from various platforms using its Data Readers (Ms SQL, Oracle, Excel, MySQL and so on)

Able to call to 3rd party application for black-box processing directly from Board Procedure

For a conglomerate long-term detailed budgeting, processing would take longer time due to the cube structure complexity

Based on our current requirement, database duplication needs to be performed yearly in order to start fresh while keeping the multi-year budgeting of previous year

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. The fact that it allows calling to external programs to do black-box processing and return back the processed result set makes it an obvious choice with reusability to prevent re-inventing what's already available.

Board in name itself describing its usefulness. The board performance is good.Board help us to improve the business decisions. In board one can not only report but can also analyze the information so that the business decision becomes more accurate. In Board one can create Business Intelligence report without any type of programming. The best functionality provided by the Board is the drag and drop.

The board allows an individual to integrate with the multiple databases, and the database will include all types of files like excel, mysql.The UI is very interactive, easy to understand to any new user.Board can handle tons of data and provide the better visualization.The community of Board is very helpful in solving the problem.

What do you dislike?

Board is very hard to dislike. It gives many functionality and also it is code free, so it is much hard to dislike but I think the individual not having much detail of the database will feel difficult to use due to complexity of queries in the database.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The board can be used by all organization whether it is big or small to make the smart decision. The company can easily analyze the database data. Also company can do the predictive analysis. Also the individual who is going to start his own company can use the board to make the better decision.

"Great for stalemate situations"

What do you like best?

We first started using Board during a period of time toward the end of our pipeline where we were focusing on what had worked and didn't work during this particular project. After a session of team lead post mortem, we were able to dedicate resources to looking at new software, techniques and work flows going forward into the next project.

One of these was Board, and even in these stages of reflection, what surprised the team in general was how much Board was already helping in our search for research and development, even at this stage.

For situations where a logical and correct decision was to made, or even just planning a clear path toward a first goal or objective, the fluidity of Board and it's easy to understand nature, brought everyone together in solidarity of one clear aim.

What do you dislike?

the overall problem that we found was being able to roll this out from a small team scenario into wider parts of the company or other teams. I feel if everyone had been on board from the start (excuse the pun), we would have been able have a clear and correct way of working.

Rolling Board out in stages required continued explanation, and a much bigger effort of transition than would have been ideal. That said, this could have been short sightedness internally having come at this apporach from a brainstorm and research and development phase of the project.

Going forward I would recommend having Board integrated into your workflow from the start

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you, or a team you are working with deals with any form of marketing, Sales or HR, then you will absolutely need a system like this in place, and you could do alot worse than Board. I feel as the company grows, and there are more and more users working centrally from one system of analytics, the presence of Board and of it's service will only get stronger and more refined.

Test it with key members of the team already dealing in the roles mentioned above, get everyone on board from the start, and they will all be able to be well informed, and make decisions with concise clarity.

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

Analysis is absolutely key, and the ease and intuitive nature of Board just made things so much clearer with regard to setting goals and the path to each one. we were able to easily discuss and implement solutions to each ares of our planning stage knowing that the process would become automated in it's own right as we continued through with out pipeline.

The interactive dashboard alone was a real eye opener in being able to share ideas and opinions. Everyone was up to date and on the same page with every piece of relevant information you could want, laid out in a clear and concise manner.

"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.

"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.

Board gives board to your thoughts. It is the best application to make report. The flexibility in this application is astonishing. The reports of this application could be kept running on Microsoft word or exceed expectations. The exchanging between the reports is astonishing its simple so you can bounce between two reports forward and backward.

What do you dislike?

I havent went over anything which makes me disdain anything about this application. I simply feel like they can accelerate some procedure since when it requires long investment in execution it is truly irritating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it.

"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?

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.

"Fantastico!"

What do you like best?

Nos presentaron a BOARD tras muchos años de experiencia en el uso de soluciones alternativas de presupuestación, planificación y generación de informes multidimensionales.

Si bien muchos de los competidores de BOARD han venido y se han ido, BOARD ha demostrado tanto un compromiso para apoyar la gestión del rendimiento como un compromiso importante con la innovación. Usamos el producto para varias de nuestras subsidiarias y ofrecemos soluciones para nuestros clientes.

What do you dislike?

El compromiso inicial con el producto es ligeramente diferente a otros enfoques y le toma un poco de tiempo reeducarse a sus métodos, pero una vez que hace las razones por las que BOARD eligió esta forma, queda claro.

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

All financial planning processes including long term plans, budgeting, forecasting and hopefully reporting. Also considering CRM and HRM
