BOARD is a business intelligence platform for all analysis, reporting and planning tasks in a company. Due to its user-friendliness, the tool is very well suited for self-service applications by users in specialist departments. Whether for management or for individual areas such as finance, sales or logistics; controlling and planning tasks take place in a uniform BI system, based on uniform data.
In addition to analysis capabilities that primarily analyse historical data, the tool also includes predictive and advanced analytics capabilities. They include forecasts, scenarios and simulations, and, therefore, offer the best conditions for sound planning. The holistic representation of the corporate structure in a software system is a prerequisite for efficient corporate performance management. The unified platform, which includes all business intelligence capabilities, eliminates the need for additional BI products. Individually customised applications are no problem with this software solution.
The BI platform is also available for mobile devices and can be used on tablets and smartphones. All corporate decision-makers on business trips or in the field can enjoy access to all important information. The mobile version offers all the features of the desktop application. This means users can work anywhere with the BI tool, enter data, develop models, perform analysis and work on planning. The user interface is the same on all devices. Access is via a corresponding app.
BOARD in the cloud – full functionality with low investment
The BI platform is offered as a classic on-premise application and as a SaaS version via the cloud. You decide for a version depending on your preferences and requirements. For ‘software as a service’, the company does not need a comprehensive IT infrastructure or administration.
The fact that lower investment is necessary should be particularly interesting for young companies. Instead, there are running costs for the functions used.
Capacity and number of users can be flexibly selected for the cloud solution. Deployment is via Microsoft Azure, the enterprise-grade cloud platform. MS Azure ensures high safety standards. The cloud application is available worldwide and available to the company in a short time. An installation is not necessary, meaning no updates or upgrades. A cloud application is always up-to-date.
The SaaS version of the BI software can be extended with a few ready-to-use applications. There is, for example, FP & A for forecasting, budgeting and financial planning, FC for consolidations and RFM customer segmentation. If your circumstances or requirements have changed, it is also possible to change the version, for example, a replacement of the SaaS for the on-premises version.
