disable p 5 reasons we love BOARD | Sensus Solutions

Any CFO or financial manager will report that in this incredibly fast-spinning corporate world, their biggest dream is to make perfect, clear-minded decisions.

In a nutshell, that’s what we can do for you right here at Sensus Solutions. But we want to let you in on a little secret: one of the magic wands we wave for businesses is thanks to a brilliant bit of software called BOARD.

Why we wave that magic wand is pretty simple: BOARD is the best. And it’s not just us who are singing these praises. Top software analyst company BARC did a survey  last year and found that of the top 13 systems, BOARD emerged at the top of the podium.

Here’s why:

1. All-in-one

The headline word here is planning, but we’re also talking about reporting and business intelligence, because BOARD does it all in a truly integrated way. So it’s the simple way to cut down on having multiple platforms and multiple learning curves.

2. Better than Excel

A major alternative to BOARD is Excel, but those who use it for their planning, reporting and business intelligence often end their days with serious headaches. What the BARC survey showed is that BOARD simply out-performs Excel in every area, including:

– Speed
– Reporting functionality
– Reliability
– Planning functionality
– Handling of big data
– Data quality
– Flexibility.

And according to BOARD users, the biggest way it outperforms Excel is how it handles multiple users of the platform, with 26% of those using Excel complaining of this issue but an amazing 0% of BOARD users reporting similarly.

3. Planning

As we suggested earlier, it’s planning that BOARD does best, thanks to the way it does data allocation, workflows and simulation. It’s also easy for both users and developers to use, outperforming every other competitor in the area of planning functionality.

4. Flexibility

As every business in the fast-paced corporate world knows, you need to react and adapt very quickly. And BOARD is the top performer when it comes to easily customising applications, with most organisations in the survey saying that that is exactly why they use the software.

5. Ease of use

Speaking of reacting fast, what’s a sure-fire way to slow things down within an organisation? Answer: needing to revert to IT support. Again, this is where BOARD excels, because users report that they do their planning data models all by themselves.

So combined with our specialised use of BOARD, Sensus Solutions can really supercharge your commercial activity by customising a platform for all the data visualisation, integrated business planning and data analysis you can imagine. Get in touch today to find out more.
