Business Objects - SRC

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Highly flexible reporting environment. Easy to write your own reports.
  • Business Objects was fair at Budgeting. It allowed a lot of flexibility in creating a budget that meets the customized needs of any organization, but along with that it can be clunky and a little difficult to use. I would say the reporting ability was much better than the budgeting capability.
  • Another aspect that this product does well is that it allows endless ways to consolidate different business units, departments, sites, etc. You can roll up a region, district, certain departments, etc. easily. This was a major advantage to my role overseeing 30+ hospital sites.
  • SRC had a delay in information until the month's operations officially closed and the data was fed into the system. Other products that I have used allow you to see activity throughout the month. Knowing that it isn’t final, you can still get a sense of how revenues/expenses are stacking up for the month, etc. In addition, other operational metrics, like Average Daily Census, Admissions, etc. should be able to be tracked daily, rather than having to wait until the month is over.

  • Ad hoc reporting
  • Planning using trending and seasonality spreads
