    Board has a set of valuable features to perform efficient analysis, provide quality graphs and reports with current data. This adds a lot of value to decision making in our organization.

    Pros

    It's easy to interact with data and perform analysis from attractive reports. It allows you to create completely new dashboards and reports or you can simply modify the pre-established ones. Board has a toolkit that is an excellent tool for creating custom analysis and planning applications, this saves time and resources.

    Cons

    It has a considerable learning curve and needs to incorporate documentation that allows new users to use its full potential more quickly.

    Pros

    With Board you can have in the same platform bi reporting, a planning tool for your budget/forecast, you can perform simulation.
    You can setup your Board application without being an IT expert on coding.
    Board has definetely helped to increase the level of knowledge of the business

    The biggest challenge to effectively using and developing for the Board platform is that you don't always know what you don't know. While that is true of most products, I can definitively say that I would have deployed the Board platform quite differently then I actually did had I the knowledge I do now then. In that vain, you are best to fully learn the product before fully diving in.

    Pros

    This software accurately provides all of the insights my organization needs, including predictive analytics. In fact, if I ever leave my current organization, I will be heavily recommending this solution to my next employer.

    Cons

    The biggest complaint that I have with the system is the time it takes to access support. That said, I usually always have the support I need within 24 hours.

    Reasons for Choosing BOARD

    We needed a more effective budgeting tool . Board was our selection from among the competitors for our business.

    Reasons for Switching to BOARD

    We saw the possibility to easily bring this BI tool to every division of our company, while the competitors did not inspire in us the same level of excitement.

    One tool for different puroposes

    Reviewed on 2022-01-26

    Pros

    BOARD doesn't require any program language, so both implementation and reporting could be in the hands of users without the support of an IT specialist.
    It's possible to implement the same models collecting from different sources and mixing different kind of information to satisfy different needs in the same report

    Cons

    Since the system is 100% web based, the main improvement could be to make it usable with the main browsers (currently not all the features work for some of them).

    Alternatives Considered

    Qlik Sense

    Reasons for Switching to BOARD

    The other products were missing some of the features critical for us, like possiblity of data entry, calculation, multi-source or flexibility
