Pros

Very good product, easy to use and to implement, with great functionalities useful for business.
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.
It is such a powerful tool, that I am continually impressed by what it can do. When I ask the support staff if BOARD can do something, the answer is usually yes.

Pros

The visualization of the data is surprising, we have precise data and very easy to read. Vena Solutions agility is perfect so that the workflow can be the best.
The ease of use is a big plus for me. Was able to pick up a majority of the best practices within a couple weeks of use.
It is compatible with other tools, this is also excellent.

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.

Cons

Some users experienced unexplained data losses. Compatibility with MACs an issue.
There is no drag and drop from a selection of columns, fields etc. However once you learn the tool, reporting becomes easier.
The cut and paste feature takes a while specially since I work with big files.

Vena

Vena provides flexibility to set up budgets, reports and other processes as flexibly as we need.

Reviewed 4 years ago

We were able to streamline and centrally collect data for our budgeting process, which save considerable time for the budget administrator and other admin assistants across our university. We created Board-level reporting templates that can be re-used every year to report the results of the budget process with only changes made as necessary for the format of the current reporting year. We collect forecasting...

Pros

Flexibility to set up whatever process we are working on the way it needs to be set up for our business requirements. Continual improvements being done on the Vena add-in and browser administration interface. Formatting Excel templates and reports exactly as needed. Ability to pull in data from all data versions for any reporting or template. Ability to save non-financial data to use in reporting or...

Cons

Having to download each Excel file, but once downloaded, it's easy to select the data we want to see.
