Avantages: The thing I like most about Solver, the company that supplies BI360, is that I have found it easy to connect with them on every level from support staff to the CEO. They take my reporting challenges seriously, and they are committed to delivering value to me and my end users. The thing I like most about the BI360 product suite is that it provides exactly the right mix of products I need to deliver information to my users in a timely manner, in the format my users need.

Inconvénients: There are very few things I dislike about this vendor. One minor thing is that they are developing their product suite so rapidly that it is sometimes difficult for me to do the upgrades necessary to keep up! Having said that, I am content to know that what I currently have meets my needs well.

Some growing pains, but overall the best solution to streamline our reporting and budgeting

Commentaires: We are happy to be attending Focus as it gives us an opportunity to learn more about the Bi360 product and network with other users.

Avantages: Reporting function, flexibility of product, customer support, and the ability to streamline our existing reports and expand upon our "old" reports and create new reports to satisfy our budget and departmental managers.

Inconvénients: We had a Planning issue where our LID was disappearing from our Data Warehouse. We're not sure what caused this but this resulted in many frustrated customers during our budget input process. Solver has been unable to replicate the issue for us, which is frustrating. We have lost a bit of trust in our planning process.

An excellent product that continues to improve with every new release.

Avantages: As a tool, BI360 is incredibly easy to use and quick to implement. We have repeatedly found new uses for the product and it continues to be our go-to solution for data consolidation, reporting and budgeting. As a vendor, we have found Solver to be very responsive, with a genuine commitment to excellence. We like that the warehouse comes with out of the box intelligence around financial reporting. It's not just another cube churning numbers. This allows us to quickly deploy BI360 as a financial consolidation tool.

Inconvénients: Users can sometimes find it confusing that the solution suite is offered via multiple applications. We understand that this approach will change in future releases.

Commentaires: BI360 is a good product. I'm very happy to see new and improved features added.

Avantages: I love the publisher and the fact the report is excel based. It's easy to format and give it the look I want. I also love the ability to schedule my reports to run when I want them to run.

Inconvénients: Something I've noticed that can be time consuming is the switching between design mode and run mode. When designing or modifying a report, switching from design to run to see how the report looks and then switching back to design again can become cumbersome.

Bi360 has been an amazing time saver for our organization!

Commentaires: Overall, great product. Reporting tool and Planning tool have been invaluable to our organization. Somewhat disappointed in loss of functionality with new version releases.

Avantages: I love the Excel based familiarity with all excel functionality available for reporting tool. The online knowledge base is a tremendous resources as well.

Inconvénients: We have had a technical difficulty that the Solver team has not been able to resolve. Very disappointing since we have been very happy with the planning module until we started losing line item detail.

Overall, I am impressed with the software. The Composer interface is very intuitive to use.

Commentaires: Ease of use, scheduling of daily reports, quick daily data refresh, and excellent customer service.

Avantages: I like the ability to create reports in Composer, drop to Excel, and share with other users. I use the Publisher tool to generate close to 100 reports daily for the Accounting Team.

Inconvénients: The error messaging is not always clear and concise. There are some limitations on naming tabs when running reports with expanding parameters.

Avantages: There is a huge learning curve needed to learn this software. However, once you learn how to use it, you will be able to create any kind of reports you want. The potential is limitless.

Inconvénients: I wish there is a "search" function that allows you to easily search for the the tags that you need.

Commentaires: Overall it is a great product for most people in the SMB market space.

Avantages: I like the expand-ability to allow multi source data so both financial and operational analysis. One of the best tools I have seen for a typical end user as you do not need IT to create reports.

Inconvénients: Currently some of the date and tree features when in use with excel are difficult to manipulate various reports.

BI360 is easy to use and a powerful tool

Commentaires: John Rayburn is the best!!!! He set us up initially and trained me to be able to make changes and create new reports.

Avantages: interfaces with our ERP, works well with the SSI integration, easy to use and customer support is excellent

Inconvénients: sometimes it takes a while to run data extensive reports and forms, when my sales department runs the Final forecast form it takes about 30 minutes to load.

BI360 is an essential tool

Avantages: Reports are designed in Excel and users can leverage all Excel functionality. With good ranges and expanding groups, you can design reports that need almost no maintenance.

Inconvénients: Report speed could be improved. Some accountants have a difficult time learning to write reports. Need trees with integrations that run directly on the accounting system.

BI360 has improved our financial reporting capabilities

Avantages: Being Microsoft Excel-based, you get to leverage all the capabilities, flexibility and power of Excel.

Inconvénients: There are some opportunities at add functionality that could be added to make the software more powerful, however Solver does a great job of adding enhancement requests, so I'm sure that they will be adding more soon.

Lots of potential but needs dedicated focus to achieve the results (not simple drag and drop)

Avantages: The potential and discovering new things that you can accomplish. The Excel add in is great along with the ability to build our own modules in the DWH.

Inconvénients: Learning curve is steep and not as intuitive as advertised. The web portal product is lacking at this stage and seems it has taken a very long time to make the switch to Silverlight. Even though 5.0 is coming out, the emphasis is placed on new customers rather than fixing the problem for current customers.

Such a great program that will save you a ton of time

Avantages: I like how easy it is to run revenue and labor reports and how all the data is stored for you. It has saved us so much time on forecasting, budgets and labor reports
