Pros

I find the PowerBi amazing to have an easy to navigate and attractive interface, simple to create a new panel, easy to learn, not to mention the integrations he already has.

Magno B.

It is a good data analytics and visualization software and its ability to import data from multiples sources is a great feature.

Pros

I originally got into Host for budgeting and it has been great for that, but I have found it great for many other things. I also love the way it can grow with me.

MM

Mary M.

Can include links to images of transaction source documents, providing great transparency in reporting. Spotlight for Excel add in to develop custom, refreshable reports is a great help.

Cons

Could be frustrating to use when first starting as it would give you an error message but provide no specifics on what is wrong or directions to fix it.

YZ

Yang Z.

I find it a bit frustrating when presented with a visualisation that doesn't represent the particular angle on the data I am looking for.

DS

Daniel S.

Had to take some training courses and even at that it was still confusing.

KJ

Kyle J.

Cons

The inability to do calculations in the report without creating a new template. Also as we are on Macs the inability to use spotlight in Mac Excel.

Monica S.

A data pull is not immediate and can cause some frustration if data is not pulled 100% accurately the first time.

BG

Bradley G.

It can be difficult to set up a report template. Not all the modules have the same reporting tools.
