I like that there are options to change the views of the reports and save it as a file so that we don’t have to continually update the reports every time we run. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I hate how buggy Longview is. If I don’t click the exact area, or drag a column header the exactly right way, then the whole software bugs out on me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

We use it to run a few reports and compare it to a different system we use. It is used by several different divisions of the company, and can be used simultaneously Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Longview has played a major role in our company's finance team's ability to house, organize, and manage financial data. The best part about the system is the very versatile functionality of the product. My company has a very complex business structure and we are always finding issues finding data tools that fit our unique model. Longview has been able to do this while maintaining data integrity and making data input and retrieves user friendly - once you are familiar with the application. Not only can we input all our financials (revenue, expenses, payroll) into the system, but we can also break up the data by account, media type, and multiple other categories that are essential to analyzing our business accurately. Additionally, the application can be access both through a website online and through Longview for Excel. As Excel is a vital program that the Finance department uses, the ability to pull Longview information from within any Excel spreadsheet is an amazing capability that we do not take for granted. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only discouraging quality that I've encountered with Longview has been the difficulty some users have had with learning its certain complexities. As with any data program, there are always specifics that need to be followed for the system to work properly. Longview is no exception - there are a lot of details and steps that go into using the system (especially within the Excel version) for data to pull for the correct scenario, time period, forecast, etc. There have also been issues with Longview functioning properly in conjunction with other programs. There have been a few notable software compatibility issues and even computer version issues with using the application. Luckily, our company has a Longview support team working with us to ensure that all questions and concerns are addressed. They have also helped train us on how to build reports that adapt to our company and department needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I definitely would consider utilizing a Longview support team the same way that my company does. The team is always available for extra training and to address any issues that we encounter along the way of bettering our experience with the system. The team is very knowledgeable about the program and can help determine solutions for your company in a much shorter time than the typical user would be able to. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

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

The main issue that we have had in the past with data housing has been finding a system that can work around our company's unique business and revenue model. Our business and revenue model does not just fit into the typical cookie cutter mold of most data management systems. Longview has been a game changer on this front. By having the ability to use Longview in conjunction with Microsoft Excel, we have been able to build custom reports, pull custom data, and analyze this data in the way that works most efficiently for us. The refresh ability is also very handy in making sure that all our data is up to date for whichever period/scenario we are analyzing. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
