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

2017-08-07

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.

Pros

Once learned, allows for creation of new processes to collect or report data.

Cons

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

Great software to consolidate numbers from multiple sources

2020-07-30

Overall great experience using their spreadsheet templates which saves you a lot of time and helps you avoid errors.

Pros

Overall, a great software package if you need to collect huge amounts of the same data from different sources.

Cons

The only issue I had with this software was updating the template if new requirements were issued. If you contact customer support they can definitely help you but if you decide to do it yourself you need to become an expert in Vena.

VENA SOLUTIONS IS AWESOME!

2018-02-17

Pros

I particularly like how easily Vena integrates with my existing software programs (Microsoft Excel based), and the support provided to our business has been second to none!

Cons

There were a few glitches during set-up and installation and there is a bit of a learning curve as we customized the program to fit our particular requirements, however customer support made life as easy as possible.
