Altair Engineering, Inc.
As per my knowledge and Altair Product experience, It is really a good product that comes with multiple features like IoT, BigData, dashboards, and other things. I personally really enjoyed using the services provided by Altair. It is well suited for the organizations who don't spend much time setting up their own platform, maintenance, and much more because Altair not only provides the platform but they will care about your products with good customer support and maintenance. I only found a bit low in the case of machine learning and AI products because I have checked different products that provide these services with good accuracy.

My favorite part is using if for analytical review reports, especially budget to actual reviews. I can make changes to the GL based on issues found during the review and the report updates immediately without having to update, re-key, verify changes, etc. I know it is going to be updated and correct every time.

  • Once a worksheet has been created, you can change a single cell and update the entire report. This makes it much easier than recreating a report every time you start.
  • It draws data directly from our database that can be filtered down in various ways. This allows us to get the data that we really need quicker.

  • Access to comprehensive training for new users is lacking. While the pay-based BizNet University has some useful videos it doesn't allow for other learning styles.
  • Having to create a separate OCBC data source and linked server for each arm of business opened is sometimes a hassle.

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

Usability
Altair Engineering, Inc.
Very user-friendly UI and visual representation is also good for the price offered. Good tool but lacks some advanced and AI-based insights. It has an edge over other tools for the price of this tool. It has some great potential and i would consider this in my top 5 when considering tools of this domain

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
Altair Engineering, Inc.
Altair smart sight stacks up against all the products mentioned above because it comes with a wide variety of applications and services like Big Data, IoT services, Embedded systems, cloud-based service, data visualization, Machine learning, dashboarding, and much more. I have used the other products like Logi Composer, Tableau CRM, and PowerBI but they only handle the specific use cases. So Because of that Altair Smartsight really provide a good and wide range of solution.

FRX - Great Plains Report Writer - These do produce financial reports but are much more tedious to set up. BizNet is much more flexible and easier to use. The functionality is an Excel add-on which allows us to use the powerful functionality of Excel as well as Biznet's functionality to do data retrieval from Sage 100 general ledger.

Return on Investment
Altair Engineering, Inc.
  • The workflow interface consists of the workflow canvas where we do our actual pipeline and workflow execution log, display information and each process.
  • You can use it to create a workflow and the available execution profiles in which to run them.
  • We currently have one session running for each workflow.

  • BizNet continues to pay for itself.
  • I am sure we haven't even learned to use half of what it is capable of and their customer service is top notch.
  • I would say that BizNet continues to have a positive impact on our entire financial portion of our business.
