About BOARD

Board is the #1 decision-making platform.

The Board Decision-Making Platform helps organizations to make better, more-informed business decisions by unifying Business Intelligence, Enterprise Performance Management, Planning and Advanced Analytics in one solution. Centralizing data sources from across the business, Board enables users to conduct analysis, simulation, and planning activities with ease through a drag-and-drop, self-service, toolkit environment.

Board’s comprehensive range of functionality, accessible within one user-friendly interface, allows businesses to build feature-rich reporting, planning, and forecasting applications without the need for coding. This approach empowers end users to make decisions faster, based on an accurate foundation of data, increasing competitiveness and removing reliance on the IT department.

    Pros

    -- Extremely easy to set up and use. It's easy to train new users and integrate with new data sources.
    -- Powerful capabilities to "slice and dice" data, analyze different datasets, create KPIs and broadcast reports to others. We utilize Board beyond the financials... use for operational, sales, logistics, customer service and environmental applications.

    -- Frequent new releases that extend capabilities. Board stays ahead of the curve and provides new features to address their customers' potential needs in the future.
    -- Good price point with several license types for different user profiles.

    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.

    Overall a good product with a lot of flexibility.

    Pros

    We had very specific requirements in how we wanted to build allocations that we needed. This software was extremely flexible and allowed us to build our allocations exactly how we wanted to.

    Cons

    You are basically starting from scratch to build things, so without someone with some expertise, its not overly intuitive to build things from scratch. We had the help of a fantastic consultant that was very well versed in Board, so that made all the difference to us. We would not have been able to build what she did ourselves.

    Easy to implement & to deploy new project

    Reviewed on 2018-03-08

    Pros

    I've started to use Board in 2007, with 6.0 version. In this 11 year of use Board continue in develop easy to use and easy to develop Environment. I like most the support, in particular when they give not only solve to the problem, but give develop solution. Another issue I like is Board in "ALL IN ONE", so you don't need another tool to make your CPM environment .
    I think that this tools to give to customer the best quality price Ratio (CPM Product)

    Cons

    I really don't have anything to say in this box, but if I must say something, the documentation could be improved.
