Best suited for financial consolidation and / or as a highly customized and compact EPM / BI solution (up to 100 CCU) with individual workflows, planning and reporting functionalities, with moderate number of users (no restrictions for any industry, all industries are covered well). It also has advanced reporting & data analysis requirements and provides an integration and reporting layer of imported data from different external systems (via ETL). It can help with migrating your legacy Excel-based business models to the Web. It is not well suited for Enterprise BI applications with expecting >500 CCU (users at the same time working with the system) - this may cause serious performance issues, as all data is kept in RAM. Jedox is also less suited for applications with heavy document management requirements (document management is not an out of the box functionality in Jedox and rather requires custom development through custom widgets etc.).

It's really an all-in-one solution for tracking the success of a sales team. You can establish unique earning paths per sales rep (user) to allow for flexible commission structures, bonus payouts for going above and beyond, and more. I think it's a great solution for anyone looking to get more insight into their sales team's productivity - and to expand an existing sales force.
Read full review Pros Using the Excel add-in means that our team was almost instantly productive, being able to use a familiar interface to present and manipulate data. Allows us to quickly do analysis and comparison of current and historic data. Really good to produce meaningful management reporting that can be adapted responsively to business requirements. Implementing Jedox in our budget cycle dramatically reduced the time and complexity of the process, while making it more transparent. Read full review We don’t have to calculate commissions in Excel anymore! It takes a fraction of the time it used to calculate commissions. Saves about 1-2 days on month end close. I like that it is easy for me and reps to drill down and see the calculations of their payouts. Reps can see calcs all month long instead of having to wait until the end of the month, so acts as a motivator. Sales managers can manage their direct reports better. When I first started using QP, I was not thrilled with the quota attainment reporting for dollars, percent, and team management. I’m glad that they added leaderboards and are working on better reporting. I like the UX and UI of the whole software. I like being able to export the following easily to Excel – resolved payouts for all payouts, payouts by rep, and Ledger (ASC 606) info. Admins can request that reps acknowledge their plans through QP, which helps with compliance and ensures we are in agreement with calculations. I like that they are adding a docusign feature. You can easily adjust earnings if a correction is needed, even after the month is closed. Just make sure you reverse from the end of the process (i.e. undo in ledger, undo the resolved payout, delete the unresolved payout, un-approve the deal). Read full review Cons Diversity. Jedox can be applied to many different use cases from small to large deployments and from budgeting to enterprise class BI solutions. But rarely is one tool able to fulfill all of these requirements in one organisation. This value proposition can be complicated for prospective users. Awareness. Jedox punches above its weight in capability and scalability, but not enough people have heard about it and therefore procurement processes can be drawn out as a result. Read full review More workspace roles with the ability to customize what each user is able to do. Currently, there's only member and team manager. The team manager currently has too much power and we want to remove some of the things they're able to do like approve deals. When you sync a deal from the CRM, you can override the earnings but you cannot override the field value you're syncing over. It would be great if that was possible. When you want to exclude a deal, you have to go in the filters and add a rule to exclude the ID. It would be better if there's an option to reject deals in certain paths as an approver.

To me Jedox deserves 10/10 because it is a consistent one-in-all platform with a modern look and feel. It is intuitive to use and allows you to make intuitive applications integrating traditional business intelligence with performance management functionality. It certainly has a short
learning curve, especially for those that are familiar with MS Excel. An example: I've lost count but Jedox it is available in more than 25 languages. Another: Jedox does not require programming skills... it is developed to be used by the business. Read full review Reliability and Availability
very few bugs. Reports are available through an Excel add-in, the web and/or mobile device (IOS/Android). In my opinion, availability also means high performance, not having to wait for the system to give you the required reports, analysis, dashboards instantly. Read full review Performance
Jedox is the fastest OLAP tool on the market. It can use GPU cards to increase performance even more
Read full review Support Rating
Jedox support in general is a professional and fast responding team. An easy-to-use ticketing system is in place. Bug-related questions are solved fast (responses come usually in a few hours after the question), but some questions / tickets, that are not Jedox-related bugs (for example some advanced questions about Jedox functionality), may be forwarded to Application Management team for further processing and then it may take several days or even weeks to get a response here -> there is room for improvement here.

We got a dedicated CSM to help with bugs, troubleshooting, and redesign of comp plans. When we ran into issues with the calculations, the CSM was able to assist identifying the root case so that we could fix it. CSM was also very receptive of product roadmap ideas and willing to engage quarterly or more often.
Read full review Implementation Rating
The implementation of SSO, SAML Authentication, HTTPS, Server splitting (Frontend / Backend servers) could be more standardized and made more user friendly to set up (e.g. via setup guide). Otherwise the implementation of Jedox is quick and simple when compared to other similar technologies.

Calumo is similar product to Jedox. I have used it extensively in my previous role. It was a major contender when we evaluated a BI platform for NIDA. Calumo is a great product as well and it was a very close call. Where we found Jedox to be a better fit for NIDA was the ability to prepare dynamic reports with ease without the need to learn MDX which was used extensively by Calumo to make dynamic reports which expand or shrink based on the underlying data. Another major benefit we saw in Jedox was the whole ETL process could be managed within Jedox instead of doing it in SQL server which negates having a dedicated SQL specialist role when the scale expands.

I have looked at the integrated tools for CRMs such as Copper which tries to handle a leaderboard. This tool is not useful at all and does not motivate sales teams to perform. It does not consider sales quota and individual compensation in a relevant way. CRMs are primarily focused on the opportunity while QuotaPath is specifically focused on the sales member's performance.
Read full review Scalability
Scalability is often another word for speed. Given enough data, enough users or enough calculations, the tool becomes slower and slower. You will find that Jedox has a very high performance that can even be increased by the use of grafical cards. Other thaen that it does not only offer BI (looking back based on historical ERP data) but also allows you to look forward through integrated budgetting, planning, forecasting, workflow and collaboration. Not easy to find a tool that can support so much business functionality. So, also pretty scalable in that respect.
Read full review Return on Investment Financial budgeting and Forecasting are done in a centralized fashion in Jedox now instead of a decentralized excel based approach. A lot of cost savings and improved reliability Easy to use self-help Dashboards and detailed reports Web-based reporting instead of excel based Read full review We have reduced the time to calculate earnings from about 4 hours a month to about 45 minutes We have reduced payout tracking time from about 2 hours every 2 weeks to around 20 minutes every 2 weeks The sales team has real-time access to self-service information versus having to wait for static spreadsheet report outs Read full review ScreenShots
