“Kepion”

OverallI have had a great relationship with the Kepion team, they are very flexible in improving the product and are very focused on client outcomes.
ProsIt is the flexible to changing business structures and requirements. By adopting an agile methodology, we find that customers get a vastly better outcome as we can change structures quickly. The tool is based on Microsoft technologies, therefore a lot of customers can leverage existing infrastructure. Kepion is a complete modelling tool and therefore allows for operational applications to be delivered outside of the finance departments, such as marketing and asset management processes.
ConsLarger implementations require additional effort to make sure user experience and performance is acceptable. As the structure is based on a dimensional model, you sometimes need to thoroughly consider the user interactions and any likely bottlenecks to ensure you achieve the optimal user experience.

“State of the art CPM solution”

OverallKepion offers a refreshing, modern CPM experience with a perfect integration with the Microsoft world including SQL databases, Excel, Word, Azure, etc. Users will like this solution as the usage of the tool is very easy and well documented. In addition, Kepion offers the full CPM functionality, what is very helpful, if you want to limit the number of software within your company and reduce the number of interfaces and user interfaces.
ProsKepion is very easy to understand and use for users. Internal know-how for Kepion is in most companies already existing inhouse due to its MS platform. Not limited to specific departmental solutions and Kepion offers starter apps for a quick implementation. Kepion offers a complete CPM product including Planning, BI, Analysis and Legal Consolidation. Perfect for customers who are looking for an all in one solution.
ConsMore complex requirements require support from technical staff.

“Great piece into the MS environment”

OverallThis software was the budgeting / forecasting piece that was missing in our Microsoft SQL infrastructure. It has helped our customers tremendously to reduce their planning process from months to days, having the ability to create detailed monthly forecasts in a simple manner.
ProsYou can customize just about anything. It utilizes the Microsoft BI stack well with dimensions, models SQL server tables etc. Easy to adjust the solution to each and every customer needs and requirements. It is easy to read information into the system and out of the system into other tools such as Tableau or PowerBI
ConsIt still has silverlight functionality, which makes the UI for end users a little bit old. The reporting functionalities within the system are not great compared to dedicated reporting tools such as Tableau. Is not the best fit for very small companies with 50 employees or less.

“Great planning and budgeting capabilities, lacks reports”

ProsSuper flexbile tool, that allows you to develop business rules without knowing any programming language. I didn't find anything that wansn't possible, with less or more effort, with Kepion.
ConsThe reporting side of the tool is definitely it's weakest point. Also, the deployment functionality is not the best.

“Kepion - Improving Forecasting”

OverallWe no longer need to worry about the size of the excel forecasting file or which version of the template users are on or version of excel. Kepion has enabled more frequent re-forecasts to be performed.
ProsWith the ability to integrate with our core financial systems forecasting became a whole lot easier, no more large complex spreadsheets with lots of hidden hard coded numbers. Forecasting is all now standardised across all entities improving the reliability of the outputs. The standardisation has also highlighted other data quality issues, and as they are resolved data across all our systems has improved. End users are able to make better informed decisions based on accurate data quickly.
ConsSome of the rendering of reports inside the application were not possible, or caused deterioration of the application speed. We still use excel to pull data from Kepion to allow more detailed analysis and data insights.

“Best EPM solution from a ROI standpoint ”

OverallEasier to use than Hyperon, SAP and IBM solutions. Getting technical support is much faster.
ProsFlexibility to adapt the solution to specific business needs. Growing capabilities. Easy of use. Price vs other EPM tools in the market. Flexible Cloud & On-Premise alternatives.
ConsAlthough Kepion's main focus is not with core BI capabilities, data analysis is not very powerful; however, it has a good integration with Microsoft Power BI
