Budget Officer at a government with 201-500 employees
Apr 22 2018

What is most valuable?

For me, because I do a lot of the administration of the system, it's just how easy it was to set up and how easy it is to maintain.

How has it helped my organization?

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... more»

What needs improvement?

Being only about a year and a half into using the tool, I don't think I know enough of what's still possible. I'm excited to learn about the e-learning tool and the community that's just starting out. If I was to look at it, from my point of... more»

What is most valuable?

I like the procedures mainly, how the data flow corresponds and how a cube is based on different dimensions, and how the entity reacts to it. We have a cube which can be broken down into different levels, and the way they want to slice it and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

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... more»

What needs improvement?

The procedures, they have a long list... There are existing gaps which I was asked to overtake and minimize and make it more efficient. Whatever procedure was created has 90 lines of writeup. If I could just export it to Excel and read it,... more»

Strategy and Performance Analytics Director at a government
Apr 23 2018

What is most valuable?

From our perspective, what was very valuable is the ability to customize. We didn't see a solution out there that really matched exactly what our functional requirements would be. So we were able to work with New Brain, our integrator, and we... more»

How has it helped my organization?

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... more»

What needs improvement?

The one thing that I think we would like to see in terms of improvement of the application is the ability to print. It's fantastic to have all of these graphic visualization of data, but we're not able to very easily just print. I'm not a... more»

Principle Architect at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
Feb 06 2018

What is most valuable?

It is easy to make quick updates. As the business changes, we can maintain the tool without programming help from IT. Simplicity. The big thing for us is, when we do an implementation, we want them to own it when it's done, so they don't have... more»

How has it helped my organization?

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... more»

What needs improvement?

It would be nice to have more connectors for other data sources. BOARD is a great tool to become the single source of the truth. Making it easier to connect data sources for niche software tools will make it easier to keep everything in one... more»

Director of FPNA at a healthcare company with 51-200 employees

What is most valuable?

It is "one" solution. Keeping it simple: Allowing my team, my users, end users, and me only one application to plug into to get all of their financial data. This is key.

How has it helped my organization?

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... more»

What needs improvement?

It would be huge in the future if BOARD offered a lot more graphs and presentations, and it was a lot easier to use.
