Comments: We were introduced to BOARD after many years of experience with using alternative multidimensional budgeting, planning and reporting solutions.
While many of BOARD's competitors have come and gone, BOARD has shown both a commitment to support performance management and importantly a commitment to innovation. We use the product for a number of our subsidiaries as well as deliver solutions for our clients on it.

Easy to use, pleasant to the eyes

Comments: Software is easy to install and backup is simple.
Support from BOARD is fantastic; always returning with solutions for both server and application questions.
There is permission control where data access can be set to different groups of users.
Accounting periods can be locked after each import which prevents accidental overwriting of past data.

Perfect!

Comments: We initially wanted BOARD to improve our budgeting process, but after we saw the potential, it quickly spread throughout our foundation. We now use it for Sales reporting, our Planning functions and managing inventory at our multiple facilities.
It has become invaluable and the ease of use drives us to continue to seek new places where we can benefit from this tool. It has improved our efficiency and most importantly, we are all working with the same data, rather than multiple spreadsheets and sources.

Excellent solution for analytics and BI/CPM solutions

Comments: We have used Board since 1997 and found it to be an outstanding solution that allows a real focus on the value of insight and analytics, as opposed to more traditional flat enterprise type reporting. Speed of deployment, capability through BI and CPM functionality is second to none which has allowed us to provide multiple solutions for the business and end customers that truly add value.

Comments: We have been working with the BOARD software for 3 years now and find that it is a great tool to model businesses. The toolkit approach means that for each different business we can tailor the requirements easily and quickly. Being able to create workflow around not only hierarchical submissions but also business processes means the end user experience is improved and informed.

BOARD is truly one product allowing us to join up planning/forecasting applications with BI reporting and dashboards with one skillset and one licence purchase. Being all from one source there is never the issue of people seeing different numbers or reconciliation differences.

BOARD is intuitive to build and use with no back end coding required, meaning this is a tool that can be owned in both IT or departments such as Finance, HR, etc.
