Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

Axiom is ideal for organizations with multiple departments that need to collect, share, and integrate data from common internal data sources. The product is best for very large organizations with a lot of financial backing. I wouldn't suggest using Axiom if you're a small organization or only one department, for example.

Solver BI360

If you have major reporting requirements on a weekly or monthly basis, BI360 provides you publisher facility through which you can schedule all your reports and those can be sent to your desired recipients every month and week. you don't have to manually run each report and then send. If you are a small company with low report requirements, you should not go for it.

Pros

Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

  • Compared to a previous EPM we used, Axiom's template load and saving performance has been much better even for large plan files.
  • Axiom consultants can create completely customized reports for any of the collected data. Super users within your organization can then fairly easily modify their work to create additional reports without Axiom's help (and invoices)
  • Setting up user security is a fairly easy one-time task and very easy to maintain when people change departments, leave the organization, etc. I would recommend you use role-based security settings.
  • Compared to our previous EPM, Axiom allows more customization and possibilities for templates. There's very few "the product can't do that" statements.

  • Budgeting is one of the Best features they have in BI360.
  • Excel-based reporting gives all Excel-lovers more confident.
  • Data Warehouse holds data from different systems, so cross-platform reporting made easy.

Cons

Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

  • Unfortunately, Axiom only assigned two implementation consultants to our massive project and both were completely new to the product and inexperienced.
  • This isn't really a fault of Axiom, but your organization's data has to be perfect before implementing Axiom. You need a strong project manager within your organization to take the lead in working with Axiom. They should be very familiar with the source data and what's important to all your internal stakeholders. The Axiom team needs to be clearly told exactly what you need from them.
  • We never truly felt confident anyone from Axiom was really familiar with the source tables and data being used. I would suggest in any project they make that a priority early on. Not being familiar with the data caused a list of issues regarding reporting and template construction.

  • BI360 could make their report building parameters more friendly to use, but it's not terrible.

For the scale of our implementation, Axiom only assigned two consultants who were both completely new to the company. It felt like we were all learning about the product together, when you would expect them to already be experts at their own product. The team also made a good bit of mistakes throughout production and go-live, which then caused more work internally for us. The team lead for our project also just left the company, so we'll see how next year's planning goes

Alternatives Considered

Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

Vena was a strong product, but only our department within the University used it for budgeting. The entire university chose Axiom for the increased scale and capacity. The loading and saving performance of Axiom is slightly better than Vena. Also, Axiom provides more template and report customization. Vena definitely excelled more in their support and staffing and was much cheaper (so I'm told) than Axiom

IN Microsoft Dynamics you can get smart list reports and many in software build reports, but for proper financial reporting packages Solver BI360 provide you the tools to create and publish all the reports as required by management and partners. So solver BI360 is the perfect choice for this requirement. I recommend this software to all.

Return on Investment

Axiom Software (formerly Axiom EPM)

  • This is only the first year of implementation for the university, so the ROI is yet to be fully seen. For our department, which is the largest in the university, I think the ROI has been fairly high as our users have had more built-in resources within their plan files than they had previously.

  • BI360 has made getting information to management much easier.
  • BI360 makes compiling information to make reports much easier.
  • Since BI360 is capable of so many reports, our company uses it for more than financial purposes.
