As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

Host Analytics

Host Analytics is well suited for our business as we operate on multiple ERPs in different currencies, thus allowing us to have a single source of the truth for financial reporting. Relating to budgeting, we also have many different ways our individual businesses currently budget, thus efficiencies are able to be gained when our businesses can leverage what others are doing as they can all budget within the application in a similar manner depending on the nature of their business. It is hard; however, to fully automate the financial reporting process within Host Analytics, as the current data visualization capabilities are complex and heavily reliant on MDX language.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.

  • The Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite does a great job keeping all of our actual, forecast, and budget data together in one place. Loading new data into the application is fairly straight forward and allows us to quickly provide reports and analyses to our senior leadership team each month/quarter.
  • The Host Analytics Excel-Add In Tool is helpful for users who are more familiar with building and creating reports in Excel. While the reporting module in the core application is very easy to use and navigate, often times our team will utilize the Excel add-in tool to build more complex reports using the data from Host as we tend to have more experience with Excel based reporting.
  • Using Host has allowed us to drastically reduce the number of days it takes to close each month. We quickly load data via the data load rule, use the consolidations module to input any top side journal entries, and from there we are able to jump right into financial reporting.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.

  • The speed of the application has sometimes been a bit slow, particularly at year end. We've found that when we use Host in Chrome as opposed to IE, our speed improves, however Host currently has limited functionality when used in Chrome.
  • We would love to see a more user-friendly report wizard in the future.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

Overall the system is easy to use, our users have picked it up fairly easily with minimal training. And we have conducted yearly surveys since implementation and user acceptance is high.

They responded quickly and are fully supportive to my success and resolving my issues. I believe with the growth they have experienced the first level support isn't as knowledgeable as we would like unless it's for a simple question. They normally end up escalating to another person. We have established a relationship with three of the support personnel who are familiar with our application though and are extremely helpful. There have been a few times when they have resolved the issue but the fix is a month out and this can be inconvenient.

Be sure you understand all the language in the initial contract as to what is included and what is not. The BRDD document although more detailed and also a signed document is not a contract and Host will not necessarily honor that document.Be sure your solutions architect has been with Host awhile and done numerous other implementations. The better qualified they are the better your implementation will go.Do you own homework, and be ready with your own documentation on process, what your proposed dimensions are and fields with the data to populate them.

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.

Vena was a close second in our selection process. We liked the smaller price tag and faster start up time. It s use of Excel was attractive. However, we did not feel that it would be able to grow with us. It was only good for the short run. Adaptive had some good features. Where Host won was in the reporting features. We felt more ease in the building of reports and connecting to data.

Return on Investment

  • Time to match customer payments has decreased by approximately 30%.
  • Time to enter sales orders has decreased by approx 10%.
  • It has enabled up to easily access our system remotely, meaning we are able to be more flexible in our work.
