BizNet Software

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.

We have to calculate most all Lab / Pilot / Proposals sizing and results. The automated calculations in [Excel4apps] is awesome, as once you are familiar with them, it is easy to quickly implement them when needed.

Pros

BizNet Software

  • 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.
Ryan Palumbo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Excel4apps

  • Easy to install and maintain. After the initial installation, there is little involvement by the technical administrators.
  • Cloning production to a test environment does not require any additional setups unlike Oracle EBS which does.
  • Loading data and reporting on this data is handled via EXCEL spreadsheets which is the "language" of our financial users.

Cons

BizNet Software

  • 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.

Excel4apps

  • Instead of popping up an error for incorrect calcs used, pop up the most reasonable solution to the calculation equation

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

I am not a power user of Excel. So I find Exel4apps a friendlier version of the things that I could do on Excel and making it easier with a magic wand.

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

BizNet Software

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.

I've used Excel previously. Excel works well but Excel4apps is easier for folks who aren't power users.

Return on Investment

BizNet Software

  • 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.
Sherma Thorne | TrustRadius Reviewer

Excel4apps

  • Made our calculations for all project a lot simplier and consistant
  • Made reporting our results from labs and pilots consistant and easy
  • Forms are simple and easy to create
