Halo is a business intelligence & supply chain analytics software which combines automated data integration, analytics, and visualization in a single platform, designed to meet the needs of a range of business functions including supply chain planning, procurement, operations, finance, manufacturing, sales & merchandising.

Halo allows users to import data from multiple sources, including database platforms such as Oracle, DB2, and SQL Server, ERP systems such as SAP and Microsoft Dynamics, and other business applications including QuickBooks and Sage. Data for various sources, both internal and external, can be consolidated in a single data warehouse, with support for structured and unstructured data from suppliers, vendors, partners, third-party logistics, and Internet of Things (IoT) data from sensors.

Halo includes a number of automated data transformation and manual data manipulation tools, designed to simplify and automate data cleansing, allowing users to combine data from multiple sources. Formats for similar item classifications can be consolidated, geo-coding can be used for address correction, and users can setup automated data cleansing sequences and maintenance runs. Once data has been cleansed, users can visualize any patterns, trends, and relationships with drag-and-drop dashboards and point-and-click drill-down and drill-up. Built-in forecasting and predictive analytics tools allow users to carry out what-if modeling, complex comparison analysis, risk scoring with likelihood and impact evaluation, and more.

 Amazing BI tool

We implemented Halo for our Sales dashboards initially. It has already helped us to identify areas where we need to focus on increased gross profit or sales campaigns. We are implementing with inventory next which will be a very valuable tool.

Amazing BI tool

10/05/2017

We implemented Halo for our Sales dashboards initially. It has already helped us to identify areas where we need to focus on increased gross profit or sales campaigns. We are implementing with inventory next which will be a very valuable tool.

Pros

I love Halo's flexibility and ease of use. It is very easy to create the dashboards and reports that you need. Additionally it is great to be able to drill down levels to see directly where the information is coming from. The automatic alerts and collaboration tools further enhance the product to make it very easy and relevant.

Halo as a great business tool

09/05/2017

The Halo team was great to work with and provided superb customer support. We were able to do a quick implementation and were up and running quickly for our leadership team.

Pros

I like the fact that the information provided is in an easy to understand format and you can quickly see if there is a business metric that needs to be investigated. Halo is easy for the leadership team to use and to do their own quick drill downs without having to ask IT for assistance. It is very intuitive. We view BI as a resource to point management to what to focus on and Halo provides an excellent tool to accomplish this.

Cons

There really are no cons. I find it a bit distracting the way we get pop up boxes when navigating the mouse over the charts, but that is a minor thing.

Ease Of Use

09/05/2017

Pros

How easy it is to create a dashboard by dragging and dropping items. Drilling for the data is very easy and takes a matter of seconds.

Cons

Need more formatting control in regards to percentages, currency, and other misc things. Some charts do not present things easily.

Awesome product!

09/05/2017

Pros

It is easy to navigate and drill up or down to get information. This is a very powerful tool and allows the user to look at information in various different ways that would have taken much longer to put together manually.

Cons

So far, everything is working out great. We just need to get more data cubes added so that we can analyze additional aspects of the business.

Easy to use BI tool

09/05/2017

Great product overall. Our users have easily adapted to using it and greatly prefer Halo compared with SSRS reports and/or connecting Excel to a cube. It still uses the reliable Microsoft backend (database engine, SSIS, & SSAS) and makes it all usable without having to be an expert in everything.

Pros

Very user friendly for both users and administrators. As an administrator of several applications, I've found this is one of the easiest to learn.

Cons

Loose a little flexibility with charts and other formatting. However, Halo has been in contact with us asking what they could do to improve their product.

My Experience thus far

10/01/2017

From the start of training to support afterward, I've been completely impressed. This product is honestly amazing. I have never seen a company provide the level of support with the almost instant response times from their support team. Not to mention the politeness and knowledge provided. Halo truly provides more than they advertise.

Pros

Ease of use - once you get into using it, you get hooked on what can be done. Security - as an administrator I decide who sees what and at what level. Prebuilt to my needs - haven't found what it can't do yet or what the great support team can't help us with.

Cons

What do I like least about this product. Well nothing so far. The only limitation when creating a View is your imagination.
