Board Benefits

Budget Officer at a government with 201-500 employees
The way that we designed the personal service forecasting module - about 80% of our operating budget is personal-service related in government. The way that it allows us to take all the variables in, and do a lot of "what if" scenario planning on it, I think is the greatest benefit. View full review »
Sujata Telang
BI Developer at a healthcare company
They had calculations from baseline for average, standard deviations, just like what you would do in Excel. We have 75 or 86 buckets based on the tissue. There are something like 20 product lines. So if you do the math, we are talking about some 800 graphs and layouts which they generally print every month. So it has been very flexible. We identified a print option for the screen, so when we hit print, and I have eight layouts corresponding to eight graphs, they print like a shot. The data doesn't have to just be there, it has to look prettier too. So I'm able to add little fancy italics. It makes the whole experience for the users better, there's something to look at. They prefer looking at it, and they start asking questions, which helps me develop further. If they want more, I can enhance it and give it to them. View full review »
Rebecca Jackson
Strategy and Performance Analytics Director at a government
For us, the city of Fayetteville has very disparate data sources on different RMS systems, so the benefit for us was to be able to reach out across departments - globally, across our organization: folks like Fire, Police, Inspections, Parks and Rec - and really build a cross-functional dataset that we're able to analyze and then produce reports for the public, online.

Bob Gill
Principle Architect at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
All staff can now see their relevant scorecards online. This helps them see exactly how we are trending towards our goals, from which their bonus compensation is calculated. The solution gives us consistency and reliability of data. As users of the tool, it's very easy to input our time, it's very clear who's working on what, when. It lines up our billing and invoices. So, it's very clear who needs to get billed Also, for implementers, it's a very visual tool. So rather than having it on a whiteboard, during design conversations, which are very abstract, we can be mocking things up using the tool and the clients can see it built before their eyes.

Rich Wojcik
Director of FPNA at a healthcare company with 51-200 employees
The low hanging fruit on the how it is performing now that we have built it into our integrity and trust in our numbers. Where in the past, there have been issues, now we have only one version of the truth. We have been able to provide seamless governance across the whole organization. Why we have done this is for the hard savings, my team is able to scale easily with the business along with the rapid growth that we have been seeing. View full review »
System Controller at a hospitality company with 10,001+ employees
It has sped things up - since we never have enough time to get things done. This has streamlined the process. Before, sales was doing Excel spreadsheets, and then we were putting that in a forecasting system. This, on the other hand, is all direct, and we can report right from it. Then we're loading actuals in, so it's a much more streamlined approach. View full review »

Letisia Romero
Financial Analyst at a government with 1,001-5,000 employees
It has streamlined the organization. It has benefited us by reducing time. Also, we are able to easily export data. When directors need financial information, we can go in the system and export the data, then send it out so they have it ready and available. If they are not in the office, we can email it to them. In addition, all the managers are now more on top of their expenses and their budget, so it is better streamlined. View full review »
Helen Ong
Sales Operations Specialist at a non-tech company with 11-50 employees
I do not think it has that great of an impact on our company yet. We have not yet been able to dedicate the time and training towards it. For me, it is useful! We are a finance team, though not in finance, but it is working out well for our team. View full review »

Kory Kersavage
Budget & Performance Analyst with 501-1,000 employees
This product has saved us countless hours in developing our budget each year. What used to require a number of employees working overtime each week consistently, has been cut down to one person working 10 hours of overtime once a year. Our Budget is also more accurate, reliable, and is updated every morning with actuals from our accounting software. Board has also helped us with developing an initiative tracking system.
