A Solid BI Solution Once You Understand the Backend

Review Source: Capterra

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.

My experience with Board for more than two years, this is enough time to get to know this robust tool perfectly, Board works perfectly from day one.

Pros
Linking Board to multiple data sources is phenomenal, this is why I like Board the most. I know this tool like the back of my hand because it is so intuitive.

Cons
I do not feel any negative thoughts towards Board, on the contrary, I think he is the best, he is very intuitive and for me this is more than enough to be able to love him.

A good product but in small and medium-sized companies is not exploited to its real potential

Pros
Ability to extract, in addition to reports and graphs, also forms of interaction with the user as if it were a management software

Cons
To create a simple Business Intelligence it is too expensive. A specific figure is required for its use.
