    Pros
    It has been a pleasure to work with the professional services team - they feel like an extension of our in-house team and provide great tips for best practices.
    I used board during one of my mission and was amazed by all it's features, i liked best. The fact that it is all in one.
    Very good product, easy to use and to implement, with great functionalities useful for business.
    Cons
    Unable to run procedures on the same database when an infinite session is running. Datareaders have no variable parameter filtering capability.
    Perhaps the lack of a program to load flat files: I could not find a pre-written tool for reading ascii files.
    It's hard to compare BOARD to other products because it's more of a toolkit than an off-the-shelf software package.

    BOARD delivered on our expectations, on time and on budget

    Pros

    I like that non-technical folks can build screens on their own, and if they want assistance, partners are there to help.

    The most powerful and versatile BI system I have ever used

    Reviewed 6 years ago
    Pros

    As a complete BI solution, BOARD allows a developer to easily create the structures required to build extremely powerful and fast data models by using 'sparsity' - the method of calculating the actual space required for cube objects. A great strength in modelling is the ability to rename and change relationships on the fly. With a logical and very visual interface, BOARD is a pleasant environment...

    Cons

    Without the community forum, learning the unique skills to leverage BOARD over other apps was a slow process, even after attending the full training package in London. However, with the latest release and with direct access to BOARD experts and peers, BOARD has become a very exciting and enjoyable app to work on everyday and I cannot, at this point, state any cons. That is not to say that there are'nt any, just that what issues I did have have all been addressed in the latest release and with access to the community

    Training and implementing of Board

    Reviewed 9 years ago
    Pros

    The product and the things it can do are remarkable. There is inter-company reconciliations and multiple levels of adjustments. In addition, the customer support is exceptional. I have had wonderful experiences with our rep. He is remarkable in how he explains things and his patience.

    Cons

    The training and system documentation leave a lot to be desired. If you are looking for documentation on how the system works or how to do something -- well, best of luck to you.

    Board Partner and User

    Reviewed 9 years ago
    Pros

    When looking to partner with a BI software vendor, we had a few key capabilities that we were looking for in a solution. These capabilities included: 1) the product must be easy to setup and configure and not require lengthy project implementation timelines; 2) the product must be able to empower the end users to create dynamic visualizations to support the needs of their business; 3) support for...

    Cons

    There is some redundancy in the product, which at times can and will require users to have to repeat a formula on multiple reports instead of making the change once and all the reports get updated. This is an area that I see the product improving in overtime.

    Reviewed 9 years ago
    Pros

    I like my relationship with the sales team the best. The front end reporting features and functions. I also like the flexibility of Board to be a BI, FP&A, Consolidation, and Reporting tool and that Board is 100% GUI interface - no programming. I can always find someone to help with my questions. I also like the ease of installing and updating Board Software. It is pain-free compared to a lot of software I've experienced. Finally, how wonderful Board demos to customers.

    Cons

    What I like the least is the limited Board Data Reader for flat files. It does not specify what fails to load in detail from the Board Data Reader log.It does not allow for both field and columns reading at the same time. We should never have to massage/manipulate any files GL extracts to load into Board. It does not allow for exception maps (i.e. all data is mapped one-to-one except for the following)....
