Good for letting your investors, employees and others know at a glance how your company is doing. The interface is clean and organized well. I just wish more of the app's functionality was available for testing and implementation. "Coming soon" is not really encouraging when we already have been waiting for a year or more.

Great for financials, complex reports with multiple criteria and lists are more difficult. Also, calculation times can be slow.

Pros

  • Grouping several apps in one place for easy viewing.
  • Clean dashboard interface that looks uncluttered when viewing several apps at once.

Cons

  • Integration with apps that are listed. Some of them are not supported yet and it seems the wait is taking longer than I'd like.
  • iPhone support. It would be nice to have this in the app store. Not available as of 04/25/2018.

  • Excel doesn't handle the amount of data well sometimes. The error messages are not very helpful to understand the problem when there is one.
  • I've had problems with Biznet 7 on terminal services. The other products Bizinsight, Broadcast and BizArchitect work well.
  • Bizarchitect is a good product but could be better and simplified.

Lack of communication from BizNet on new policies with the resellers, changes in the policies that affect the client aren't positive in my opinion

Support

Support was helpful in the beginning but no longer needed because I didn't use the software as much. The experience that I did have with support was very friendly but not enough to give a good review. If the support team was called for initial setup, video chat or messenger app was used.

We went pretty seamlessly into BizNet, but could have had lots of trouble if the professional service was not aware of our set up and use.

Alternatives Considered

I actually chose QuickBooks (currently using) and Method (used for a month) before deciding that 9 Spokes is just good for looking at a few apps in one place. I'll keep checking back with them to see if they have improved. I wouldn't be surprised if 9 Spokes improves their product within the next 6-12 months.

Each of these have their positive and negative points. The point I like best about BizNet is the capability of sending out reports to several at once. I did like the Crystal Reports that I could build and still do some reports there, but BizNet is almost as robust and has the sharing capabilities. Frx was one that I would suggest needs lots of improvements. I used it because it was all that was available to me at the time.

Collaboration and Sharing

9 Spokes7.0
Based on 1 answer
Access control capabilities are OK. Ease of sharing is great because the app design is made special for that purpose. I haven't dove that far into the app enough to generate reports. Formatting is very flexible because 9 Spokes allows the user to customize how the info is displayed. Security or lack thereof is not a factor for me so I am unable to give feedback on security.

Super easy to share the spreadsheets. Have not tried the collaboration function yet. Look forward to that one though - a feature I have not had with other software like this.

Data Integration

9 Spokes5.0
Based on 1 answer
I gave 9 Spokes a five because the range of data sources is minimal. Ease of merging data from disparate sources is pretty good for the ones they do support. I just want to have more apps available for arranging on their nice looking interface. Perhaps next year my review for 9 Spokes will be better than 5

When it connects, things seem to work fine, but having trouble with dropped connections. Have not tried to connect from disparate sources yet. Real-time connectivity is excellent!

Return on Investment

  • We're able to compare year over year and current year vs budget in a single report instead of multiple reports...i.e. more info in less reports.
