Overall Satisfaction with Information Builders WebFOCUS

Webfocus is being used by several departments including inventory, merchandise planning, analytics, and marketing. We can view several reports about our catalog revenue and each item's conversion rate. The tool has helped us with maintaining records on what we put into every catalog as well as an updated sales report on catalogs that have been sent out.
  • Webfocus reports all have the option to export to Excel. The excel spreadsheet is always very organized and clean, and the information is very easy to read.
  • Webfocus is able to maintain data from years prior. We can look up what we featured in catalogs and all the sales history attached with it.
  • Webfocus is able to provide support to a variety of departments. For example, our buying team uses it for planning in advance and our marketing team uses the tool to see how categories and products as the selling
  • The functionally I would like to see is being able to export files in different formats.
Webfocus handles the side of our business that is involved with our catalogs. Our catalogs is a huge revenue driver for us and this tool has been extremely useful with planning feature catalogs. Tableau is used more for marketing and merchandising purchases since we can filter data based on website sales.
The amount of data we can pull from Webfocus has helped many employees in several different departments. Most of the date is updated in real-time, which is different from other software that we have. The excel sheets that we can export are easy to understand and the range of data sources covers a lot of our company's needs.
Webfocus is easy to use and the date files is constantly shared between different employees and departments. There usually isn't too much formatting that needs to be done but it is simple to do so if needed. The downside to Webfocus is that we cannot directly export files in different formats other than export.
Webfocus is great for any company who wants to maintain a strong history of analytics. The reports update frequently so it is a great tool for any e-commerce business to have. I'm not sure how well it will work for any forms of business but Webfocus is currently one of our most used forms of software.
