  • The availability of having a web based tool is vastly superior.
  • The actual query and objects layout is very user friendly.
  • Even a person with limited query experience will be able to use the general functions or run a shared project easily.
  • The ability to share a project with another user is very convenient.

  • Business Objects allows me to pull data quickly when I am in a time crunch, for example, I was able to pull together a presentation for a last-minute board meeting to discuss financial objectives for the upcoming fiscal year
  • Business Objects data is used in identifying items that should be discontinued due to low sales volume or low margins
  • Business Objects data is used to analyze customer and brand performance and identify areas of success that can be translated to other customers, or areas that could be improved.

Return on Investment

  • By generating and distributing reports in a timely manner, we were able to save millions of dollars for the company which otherwise would not have been visible.
  • Almost realtime dashboard, saved the company a huge amount by showing the outages and kept the company from buying a tool to do just that.
  • It showed the customers who were not paying the bills and were missing in the system due to some loophole. This was visible by doing reporting on the theft usage of electricity.

  • Saves users time, as they do not have to analyze all the data themselves; it also saving time by scheduling these reports to be delivered to users' email everyday at same time.
