Overall Satisfaction with BizNet Software

We use BizNet to generate all financial and sales reports.
  • Ease of creating new reports
  • Happy with everything.
  • FRX
Much easier to create reports.
We have used BizNet for 4 years. Every year we find new and more productive ways to use this software. In particular, it's ability to draw data from multiple MAS companies has made the production of consolidated statements as seamless and individual company reports.
We didn't add BizBroadcast until a year after purchasing BizNet and now we would be lost without it! Biz Broadcast provides a seamless way of distribution of reports without manually separating worksheets.
  • More automated sales reports that saved many hours of monthly compilation.
We needed a solution to replace our unsupported FRX package and BizNet was just the ticket...even better!

Using BizNet Software

5 - Accounting, Sales and Market research.
1 - A good grasp of MS Excel will keep you going.
  • Inventory management
  • Financial reports
  • Sales Reports
  • Forecasting and Budgeting
  • Consolidating financial statements

Evaluating BizNet Software and Competitors

Yes - Frx. Microsoft was ending support of Frx.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Vendor Reputation
Product usability...being able to create custom reports with MS Excel rather than special coding skills.
I would have included the A/R module and BizBroadcast from the start.

BizNet Software Implementation

Use of a 3rd party provider was instrumental in quickly and smoothly implementing BizNet Software.
  • Third-party professional services
SWK
Yes - Our initial purchase was for the General Ledger module to replace Frx for financial reports. One year later we added the AR module and BizBroadcast to replace the manual sales report process.
Change management was minimal
  • Most significant was how easy implementation was. We participated in one product training class after which 3 users were able to create useful reports.

BizNet Software Support

We have only had a few occasions to call on the support team over 4 years, but every time our need was met in a superior manner.
ProsCons
Quick Resolution
Good followup
Knowledgeable team

Kept well informed
No escalation required
Immediate help available

Quick Initial Response
None
Yes - Support is included in the reasonable annual maintenance fee. I would call it Premium because it is exceptional.
On one occasion the support team reached out to ensure we were taking advantage of all the feature available in our BizNet package, including walking user through the installation of the Desktop Edition of BizNet.
