There is a number of problems that Board addresses. Sales forecasting was one of the key areas we solved a lot of problems. Sales forecasting is a very complicated process that requires precision and accuracy. Board is significant in catering to providing business intelligence in this regard. This is also successful in enhancing the operational efficiency and implementation of quick and better decision-making.

  • The documentation for modes in Data readers is inadequate and requires more work. There are several other areas where the documentation more work and more use case-related examples and their descriptions.
  • There are instances in which the changes in a single formula results in a massive mess. The formula feature could be improved to a greater level.
  • The error and the logging information could be improved and made more human friendly.

This promotes decision-making and reporting processes, especially in the financial field.

Board offered us to work efficiently in many departments, particularly those responsible for finance and sales, to monitor, [budget], and revenue. Risk management tasks what could happen in the future of the company. In addition, Board helped a lot [with] reporting, accounting, bookkeeping, and other financial calculations. Furthermore, the Board assigns a portion or dashboard to each department in the firm, which they use to contribute to the company's success. This aids in performance ownership and quick access to all financial data.
  • [The] connection between monitoring and reporting features, Enables for parallel activities between many chiefs or supervisors, who are responsible for both organizational outcomes.
  • Data management capabilities such as extracting and importing data, preparing different action models according to data, storing and diversifying data with special machine learning features.
  • Ability to work with large data without downfalls in software workload.
  • Effective customer support.
  • Ease of use seems confusing while working with different currencies [especially] during projects [in] different countries.
  • Moving to the Board was really hard, hope Board would develop integrations with emails and spreadsheets.
  • Bugs in [the] interface during remote control, during pandemic it made it hard to solve problems.
Board is a software that outperforms other operational programs in terms of cost control and revenue collecting. Furthermore, budgeting at a firm is tightly handled due to extensive research. The program includes a sales strategy that, when properly implemented, results in profits at the conclusion of the specified time period. Finally, the Board collaborates including all senior managers or leaders, who are all responsible for productivity.
Data sources coming [from] Excel, CSV, and PDF forms. The call is established via SQL servers but everything appears to be in working order. Board takes use of Windows Server's connection definitions and completes the task appropriately. By utilizing these connectors, the data gathering environment becomes more reliable and resistant to issues.

For our organization, Board has been implemented for overall business analytics which helps us to analyze metrics and optimize budget in various segments of the organization. The provision of predictive analysis has allowed us to make informed decisions and helped us minimize unforeseen challenges. The dashboard has extensive features that provide real-time updates.
  • It offers extensive tools for documents and reporting.
  • Easy to navigate different functionalities.
  • Data can be readily synced on the cloud.
  • For first time users, it be complicated to use in the initial period.
  • Is little expensive for small enterprises.
  • The learning curve is steep, training tools can be improved.
Users who aren't very familiar with programming can easily get their hands on it since it doesn't require prior advanced coding knowledge. It has flexible configuration and you add desired functionalities off the dashboard. It is best suited for marketing and business analytics and provides all the necessary tools for examining as well implementing strategies. For budget constrained organizations it might not be well suited to cater to their needs given the cost of the software.
It works perfectly well even on large databases without any glitches and deployment of data can be carried out in a short period of time. Data integration and migration from various sources is highly secure. Especially for data source connectivity, it has pre-built data connectors for diverse databases which reduce your effort in accessing the data.
The benefit of having a single integrated platform with both Business Intelligence and Corporate performance management capabilities rather than two separate solutions is that the users need not be trained on multiple software and can implement various similar functions on a single platform. Thus, saving time, effort, and money! All-in-all it is beneficial to have a unified platform.

Board is being used accross all our departments and helps us in our product development to stay on top using the latest technological trends.
  • Simple summary with customizable visualizations.
  • Well designed reports.
  • Detailed information.
  • Reliable forecast.
  • UI not modern.
  • Some operations will take forever but this is due to the large size of database.
Due to the very high cost of operating Board, this solution cannot be implemented in small to medium organizations unless the company is willing to spend a lot, but any amount spent with Board will not be a waste.
Importing and exporting reports is simple and works as expected.
It can hold a large size database, and can integrate with other databases.
All work is in real-time and all reports updated all the time.
Using a single integrated platform makes processes much faster and diagnosing the problems an easier task. Not to mention that the cost will be less if it's one solution rather than two.

We use Board as a collaboration tool in our organization where it connects all the data it gets from all the departments and provides management with a forecast backuped by detailed reports.
  • Helps align performance with the corporate objectives.
  • Provides reports to help provide better decision making.
  • Single platform combining business intelligence with corporate performance.
  • Support is hard to catch and might take up to 24 hours to respond.
Board is not a good solution for small companies, as the data will not be enough to provide a reliable outcome.
Importing data from various sources is available in Board, so you can just import your excel sheet or integrate it with other solutions then merge them in Board all in real-time. All formats are accepted and Board will convert it in a short time unless you have a lot of data, then that might take a lot of time and consume a lot of your resources.
To start it's worth mentioning that Corporate Performance Management is a subset of Business Intelligence but most other solutions provide them as 2 separate products. But in Board, you can get both in a single platform, which makes all processes go much faster and will cost less to implement. In addition, having both BI & CPM come from the same supplier makes it easier to manage technically and will require fewer resources.

Board helps our organization take the right direction through using business intelligence, performance management, and advanced analytics.
  • Runs effective analyses.
  • Links insights from business intelligence.
  • Automates the building of data using predictive models.
  • High cost.
  • Requires intensive training.
Board is a single platform for all your departments that helped us in our forecast by merging data from all our departments.
With Board, you are able to do real-time changes to your data after importing them from various sources easily.
When you are using a single integrated platform, it's better for many reasons. First, the data analysis will be much more reliable since there is no need to worry [about] data loss between the 2 solutions. Second, it's cheaper this way. Last, but not least, it's more secure since your data is available in one place and not moved around across servers where the potential attack might happen.

Board is a great Project Management and Planning Solution which can be configured on-premises and on the Cloud. In our organization Board is used as a SAS tool and it has many benefits. Holistic Overview and in-depth details of a project can be accessed with a few simple clicks and hence give the stakeholder a quick understanding of which stage the project is currently in.
  • Project planning.
  • Capacity management.
  • Resource planning.
Board is great because of its simplistic Project View. From the Project View we can see the number of project team members and directly assign tasks to them and also set reminders about the task with appropriate deadlines. This way, it saves us a lot time and avoids human errors.
All changes updated by a team member replicates instantly and the information is available real time. Data can be linked directly into Board and does not need a BI Connector. Our testing devices are directly connected to the server from where Board imports the raw information so all the analytics can happen in the Cloud.
Data Analysis is faster especially when the Data Cleaning can be done within Board itself. Previously our Report Generation used to take about 24 hours and now it only takes 2 hours after we implemented Board.

Board is being used as a complete solution for business intelligence, financial planning, budget monitoring, predictive analytics and project management tool in our organization and it has been a great experience using this platform so far. Board has enhanced overall stability and efficiency in our project management and business affairs through its versatile feature sets regarding BI and CPM at one platform. We have been able to visualize our KPIs and goals achievement rates and increased overall business profitability by using real time reports and predictive analytics. It also provides the ability to merge existing data sources at one platform to create and maintain multiple management reports and dashboards at one platform. We are largely using this tool in our Finance, PMO and technology departments in our organization.
  • Data consolidation and management reporting.
  • Financial budgeting and detailed financial reports with consolidated data.
  • Project forecasting and predictive analytics.
  • Personalized dashboards for the users and data sets.
  • Integration with third party data sources can be improved.
Board promises the multiple tools for the every aspect of the project management and minimizes the risks involved in projects and financial budgeting by providing detailed analytics and management reports. It also has consolidated platform for business intelligence and corporates performance management, which gives great ease for the management decisions. I think it would be great platform to have for any corporate sector organization.
Board has ability to connect many data sources at once and it is not much complicated process with difficult coding etc. we can easily connect our different data sources through pre built templates and available extensions with the platform. So overall merging of data with Board is easy and stable at most. But there are some limitations with the platform and some 3rd party data sources couldn't integrated easily as expected.
Board has consolidated different entities of project management at one platform and it is actually pleasing factor in the tool as we have a unified platform for business intelligence and corporate performance management to look both perspectives of projects and business growth under one umbrella, which ultimately enhanced the overall efficiency of the teams and decision making processes.

Board is currently being used to quantify every stage of the business operations and improve company's and team's performance by contextualizing business numbers and turning them into actionable values. Predictive analytics are used to project the performance of marketing campaigns and potential product lines to steer the company toward a more profitable direction.
  • The extensive language capabilities facilitates multi-lingual reporting
  • Predictive analytics and data modeling
  • Turns numbers into charts, tables, maps, and graphics
  • It's a cumbersome task to drill down into layers of configuration
  • It's a vast and complex system therefore it involves a steep learning curve

Corporate performance management is a vital aspect across organizations. Board allows us to easily automate business procedures such as workflow, marketing, etc. We are yet to incorporate Board in all business units.
  • Financial planning and budget forecasting.
  • Profitability determination by products and regions.
  • Management reporting in real time.
  • Board is, however, hectic to integrate with external applications.
  • Unavailability of offline access capability.
With Board, planning analytics has never erupted errors since it is automated by determining profitability with region and products.
Data sourcing is excellent since Board integrates with external applications and APIs to export and import data. For instance, excel data integration helps in budgeting.
There is no much benefit, but it tends to be easy to use single integrated software to easily navigate features.

With the assistance of Board, we have come nearer to its objective of making an arranging framework scene that is seen at all levels as an enhancement rather than a commitment, and we are presently taking advantage of all of its intelligence and information forecast capacities. The Board arrangement reflects our target arranging scene and was a huge component in the Corporate Controlling group meeting its functional objectives.
  • The framework-based assortment of subjective information and advanced control for straightforward endorsement processes has essentially sped up arranging exercises.
  • The straightforwardness of the Board application and the simple arrangement of new arranging layouts and reports, with next to no top to bottom IT information, bring the arranging devices nearer to the expert divisions and permit the specialists to rapidly and subjectively examine the information.
Inside a brief time frame, bdg set up an incorporated eatery area arranging arrangement which was unmistakably fit to our business necessities. Notwithstanding backing and upkeep, Board offers help for altering and expanding the arrangement. Because of viable client and executive preparation, we can now freely control its arranging arrangement and improve processes.
The platform's convenience and quick information handling and assessment time.
A solitary stage for all planning, estimating, and revealing exercises.

It is being used by our senior management. I used it for 1 year. I can describe it as the best tool for negotiation & inter-department objection handlings. The MIS generation have lots of options & features which can be used comprehensively to cover all aspects. The most commonly used features at our place are benchmarking, to identify market & economics dynamics & feasibility of project or a given task.
  • It provides good insights on market dynamics which can be used to formulate marketing or sales strategy.
  • After sales support is best.
  • Anyone within the organization can view & perform analysis on any particular project, well suitable for flat management system.
  • It doesn't support low end systems as the app is heavy.
  • User interface.
It is very well suited for corporate office where the decision making has to be done. It requires users who are handy with computers as some menus in this software is complex to understand. However, the aftersales support team is always there to support.
The parameter filtering could have been better so the user can make maximum out of this software.
The connectivity is very good, the data sources can be in multiple formats.
Board helps in making & facilitating ease of making various decisions in various departments like logistics, marketing, finance, sales, etc.
Since we are in exports, where things changes very rapidly, having one platform instead of two saves time & reduces chances of error.

Board is a very clean and modern application that we use to bring together Product Design, Sales, Marketing, E-Commerce & Business Intelligence into one platform. Board helps with getting the appropriate reports and also help us in making better business decisions. It allows us to convert data into actionable intelligence & also promotes accelerated decision-making.
  • Data Conversion and unification
  • Quick and very easily customizable reporting
  • Can't think of anything right now.
Board is great when it comes to the collection and classifying of data especially when the input is through various different sources. Our organization has data flowing from Lab Instruments, ERP, CRM SCM, and HRM systems. Board helps in simplifying reporting across multiple transaction systems and it makes data analysis possible at different levels of Org Hierarchy. Board is fantastic for Sales Forecasting and Complex Business Modeling and Projections.
Board groups data points in creating partitions based on similarity of Data Labels. Using the Machine Learning feature Data that is most frequently fetched is moved to each node and the accessibility speed increases. Data duplicates are also easily detected and cleaned without any manual intervention, this clean up happens in real-time.

Technically speaking, since the Database is the same the information delivered from the BI and CPM Modules will be written and accessed faster.

Board provides a unique user experience, where we can utilize next-gen forecasting and reporting solutions to make the best and most effective business decisions. Board provides its users a one-stop-shop for BI (Business Intelligence), BA (Business Analytics ) and overall Project Management. Budgeting and Forecasting are what Board excels in.
  • Dynamic Report Dashboard..
  • Business Simulations based on Predictive Analytics.
  • I am not really sure.
Board is fantastic when it comes to merging data from a legacy system and new Cloud-Based sources. Online analytical processing (OLAP) I would say is the best in Board. All these points can be fed into a single Processing Unit to generate common and unified Metadata with an accurately defined data hierarchy..
We have primarily 5 data sources. The information from regular SQL DBs & Data Warehouses along with info from Legacy ERP CRM systems get classified and cleaned and stored in Board Native Databases where it gets tagged with unique metadata. This processing usually takes hours in other applications, but in Board, it hardly takes a few minutes no matter how large the data sets are.
With BI and CPM processing happening within Board itself, Information from the Data Source can flow into the Board Engine and then quickly reach the Clients let it be a web portal or a mobile device. Dashboards are very interactive and due to the speed at which the dynamic reports are generated, we can literally have 100s of business models any time we want it.
