What do you like best?

Very simple to use, interface is clean and straightforward. We used the Results, Robots and Analytic module within the Highbond platform and Galvanize has made significant improvements in the integration of these modules. The data visualization with story boarding has been improved a lot over last 2 years and streamlined for making simple and meaningful storyboard from the results data generated from the desktop analytic and robot. Highbond is doing a good job integrating the download/extracting from source data, then pushing flagged exceptions to GRC Results Module and then results are linked to the Storyboard which allows easy sharing for management to make timely decisions. The whole data preparation and analytic process can be automated and with the introduction of Robots. Robot tasks can be rescheduled and run automatically (replacing AX exchange server). We also use the Results Questionnaire tool to for distribution of survey and for event registration, the questionnaire can be very helpful in to ask questions about exceptions identified in the analytics. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The storyboard and design of dashboard needs more improvement, currently it can only handle smaller datasets and other visualization tools like Tableau software offers better graphics, visuals and more control over design of dashboards. The robot and storyboard products are still fairly new and will need more development or improvements. Complex licensing/pricing with the different modules and products. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The results module is very helpful for workflow remediation process, plus the questionnaire can be helpful to get answers or additional information about certain exceptions identified. The robot module has script version control which is very helpful and currently not available in the desktop version. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Monitoring and analytics routines can be performed repeatedly once scripted. Great community, free ideas from inspirations, sample scripts available on the vendor site can help and enable development of new analytic routines. Highbond tool help with analyzing large datasets, profiling high risk items, and potentially identify compliance exceptions, and reporting. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like how the ACL Analytics part can handle large sets of data (and from different sources), and being able to run multiple analysis on this data without having to write codes repeatedly or adjusting much. Once you create queries and automation, you can work with different sets of data and perform the same analysis repeatedly. Also, being able to automate this with robotics, and create outputs/reports, without learning how to write SQL or other programming languages. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

For certain scenarios or uses, you might find yourself wanting to go back to SQL, coding, Excel or any other tools, it all depends on the specific needs. I think the Highbond tools work better to integrate multiple sources and large sets of data in a single place. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's definitely a platform you should consider when looking for tools to manage data, perform analysis, and report on these analysis. There are other options, but it all comes down to specific needs (such as how much data, and how many different sources you may have in your organization). It takes a while to get used, but as with any other tool, there's a learning curve involved. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

As an auditor, we run multiple analysis on different data (but with the same structure). Previously, doing this would take more time in Excel, or adjusting queries in SQL, and importing data from different sources. ACL Analytics has helped primarily on consolidating the data, and also running the same queries repeatedly, without much adjustment. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The visual aesthetics of the tool are engaging and a welcome sight when working for long period of time. The simplicity of how data flows and allows for consistency and immutability is wonderful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Working with a cloud based system is problematic at times due to the restrictions of what data can be transferred/stored due to privacy and government requirements. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Pay attention to the ease of use for the end users. Be willing to re-evaluate your process and consider if the tool provides a better or just as good way of doing your work. The tool allows for configuration so explore how that can meet your needs. Most importantly it needs to be easy to use and inspire the end users. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Tracking and managing exceptions through the workflow process. This has allowed the benefit of centralizing the results in a location business partners can interact with, this reducing manual work my internal members. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The fact that this is software is cloud based makes it revolutionary and readily accessible across different devices and the fact that it prides in effective monitoring and efficient observations key for compliance and proper auditing and given that there is timely service and a great support team makes it worth having and builds in us the already subscribed clients a pride in association with this software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

At the moment there have not been any major dislikes for me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Compliance and Audit are key aspects of any business and if you need a quick, efficient way to do it that is fast forward, then I would highly recommend HighBond. You cannot go wrong with it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The greatest benefit we have obtained from this software is the fact that auditing and ensuring that we are complying with our tax obligations and all the other obligations that call for our compliance as an organisation and beyond all that there has been financial hygiene and resource utilization since we started using this software and thus the financial flow has greatly improved and also an effectiveness untold has been the other additive.

What do you like best?

I like that there are many options for working with data and process-based information. The ability to take large datasets and analyze them quickly with repeatable scripting and an easy-to-understand language is an amazing value. Utilizing output from those analyses into an end-to-end process for documenting project objectives and risks adds tremendous value. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish it was clearer how Galvanize's toolsets work together, and I would like to see more intuitive interfaces for the user. Also, performance on relatively simple operations in Results and other HighBond modules needs to improve. More clarity about how the tools work technologically would be incredibly helpful, as would more robust documentation and help on integrating Galvanize's toolsets with other powerful tools for analysis and visualization. I would like the ability to more effectively use the tools without having to rely on expertise from Galvanize. Trainings and other resources on how such tools as Python and R can be used alongside Analytics/HighBond/etc. would be a great area to build out, as I don't currently see a lot of information out there about those areas. I would also like to hear more about how Galvanize's products can integrate with Power BI and Tableau. We also have noted, however, that the tools can be unstable and take too long to complete operations, sometimes crashing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Expect it will take time to effectively plan out how you want to implement and use HighBond software. There are many facets to the productset and there can be a steep ongoing learning. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We are able to create output in Results that facilitates workflow from our data analytics team to the business, and vice versa. We frequently see time savings from our automated scripting and output to Results. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I appreciate that I can sync data to Results from ACL Analytics or AX Server. I like the script management added for ACL Robot Agent analytics Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the insufficient capabilities for customers to customize and configure the product. I hate the fact that it is only a cloud-offering. I also do not appreciate the years that HighBond has received the lion's share of Galvanize's energy and resources for development, over ACL Analytics, AX Server and now even Robot Agent. Your existing IA analytics customers are moving to other solutions for a reason. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

Our organization has not realized any great benefit as of yet. We're pursuing distributed analytics model where everyone in the department should be able to access and perform data analysis. Teaching ACL Analytics and AX Server has occupied most of our time. There is little interest in HighBond other than using Results and very few people in our department are familiar enough with ACL or HihgBond to integrate the two products in our work.

What do you like best?

Scripting Capabilities! I also love the community. When I have questions about how to implement a test or analytic, I first submit a question on the Community board. I almost always receive a helpful reply within a couple hours. The scrip hub and help docs are also great. I have found that through my knowledge of and ability to combine data from different sources, I am now sought after from other leaders in my org to provide meaningful data analysis and information. Also, the analytics tool has a steep learning curve, however in response to that Galvanize Academy has incredible and relevant content. Plus, as a CPA, I am able to earn CPE credit through the courses I take. I'm also a fan of the summit event. Even though this year, the summit was forced to go virtual as opposed to live/in-person due to COVID-19, the team did a great job. I am always inspired by the real life use-cases of the analytics platform and often come away from the event eager to increase my own abilities with scripting. Overall, the analytics platform has increased my ability to produce results and meaningful content for my boss (our CFO) much quicker with accuracy. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The price has increased about 40% since obtaining the analytics product 5 years ago. However I did gain more users with the price increase so that has helped embrace the cost increase. Again, related to cost, to upgrade to full Highbond (not just Analytics), the cost would quadruple. As someone working in Not-for-Profit, I am very dollar conscious. It would be great if Galvanize would offer discounts for Not-for-profits. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend If the conference is approaching, considering attending. That's a great time to see the products live and in real time, as well as real-life use cases from industry users. Their customer service is great and will quickly put you in touch with the right people. Again, as I mentioned before, the community is the best part. Other power users are often willing to help me out when I'm trying a new analytic. I'll even post my scripts on the community boards and ask others to help me fix what might be broken. The way I am able to import from multiple datasources has also been a key feature for me. Galvanize continues to create new data-link connections with other platforms as well. Scripting Capabilities!

The integration between different apps like ACL Analytics, Results, Robotics, and Storyboards make it very easy to keep processes organized and control each aspect of the process Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some issues with the level of customizability for some of the Results / Storyboards related things we have seen. HighBond is always great about listening to suggestions and making those suggestions a reality if enough people ask for it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

HighBond is a wonderful platform with wonderful employees who are genuinely concerned about making the platform the best that it can be to fit your personal needs. Any issues that we have run into we have been able to address or put on their radar for future improvements which is great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

We are using HighBond currently for a lot of internal metrics reporting. We are creating programs in Analytics that create some of the metrics and push our data into Results, which then feed into Storyboards that we have created and are able to use to monitor those metrics. Again, one of the greatest benefits is the cohesive nature of the platform as a whole. We are able to seamlessly use all of these platforms together to maximize the insights we are able to get out of our data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some limitations that I wish could be fixed. For example, I wish that when creating a questionnaire, if you choose the wrong type of question, you could just pick from a drop down list and switch the question type on the fly. I wish that the storyboards were a lot more dynamic. There are so many great charts and KPIs out there and it seems like the story boards are so limited.

I would highly suggest looking into HighBond, if you or your team is looking to incorporate more data analytics within your business. This tool really helps streamline and increase efficiencies no matter what type of project or audit you are working on.
