"Great for small projects"

What do you like best?

Open framework - you can build any kind of model using any number of different dimensions and hiearchies. There are three preset dimension with special features - scenario, time, account. Abillity to implement a simple model very quickly.

What do you dislike?

One input hierarchy within a dimension per model - to enter data on a different level you need dummy elements or a different model. No out-of-the-box planning features - currency conversion, data versions, you can build anything you want, but is not available as an already built in option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for smaller projects, goes very well with existing MS SQL server infrastructure.

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

Financial budgeting planning and forecasting, detailed sales planning in retail and pharmceutical industry, public sector. Shortened yearly planning cycles significantly, implemented rolling forecast, supported what-if scenario simulations.

"Kepion - perfect piece in the puzzle"

What do you like best?

Completely open framework, can create models as easy or complicated as you like. Utilizes the microsoft stack very well with MS SQL and SSAS allowing you to combine it with other tools within the MS Analytics Stack

What do you dislike?

Silverlight interface which makes it a little bit old school compared to facebook, google comparisons. Will be replaced with HTML5 in the coming months, which will really set the tool apart.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you already have a microsoft based environment or MS SQL in place this solution would fit well into your requirements. This solution requires some customizations so I would mostly recommend it for companies with over 10M USD in yearly revenues.

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

Planning & Forecasting, P&L, Balance Sheet, Cash flow etc. Able to help customers to migrate to rolling forecasts and plan on a more driver based levels instead of the classic Account structure.

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

Thanks for letting us know!

"Powerful, efficient Budgeting, Forecasting and Analysis"

What do you like best?

The shared model in Kepion, leveraged from Analysis Services, is the best feature. It allows us to define our model once and then use it across all of our planning sheets and reports.

What do you dislike?

The interface is a little old and clunky, since it is built in Silverlight.

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

Our forecasting is much more accurate with Kepion. We have moved from the arduous task of spending half a week each month re-forecasting, to being able to change our plan whenever conditions change. We can also clearly see the impact of changes on our forecast and how close our past forecasts are to actuals.
