Overall Satisfaction with BOARD

BOARD is being used across the whole organisation with about 70 active users who would use it on a weekly basis at least. It is our main BI system and source for tracking company performance, KPI's for individuals as well as teams. It is also used for planning, budgeting,forecasting, inventory management and various other information sources.
  • Access of data from anywhere anytime with up-to-date information, making it easy for users to make decisions based on accurate information
  • Ability to drill through to the minute details to a transactional level
  • Flexibility of being able to read information from various sources whether it be our ERP, data warehouse or even an Excel spreadsheet.
  • Excel add-in is not very stable but is not a big issue as it's only used by finance team
  • Some procedures to update information do take long to run and update.
  • Very positive impact on our overall business objective. We haven't formally calculated the ROI but based on user feedback, I can confidently say that the payback was 2 years for the investment me made. Happy with the decision we made for selecting BOARD.
Excellent ability to read data from almost any data source. Haven't come across any data source that we needed to connect and it wasn't able to.
Sharing capability is good but we don't use it very often. It is difficult to print reports to PDF, etc., but it's not meant for it.
Single source of truth, cost effective and less training required due to the software having both BI and CPM capabilities.
Finance is spending time analyzing information rather than crunching numbers. The sales team is self-sufficient rather than relying on analysts or the finance team for information.
