Make better decisions faster

Choose how you plan
Power users can use web-based planning sheets with an Excel look and feel; casual users can plan in active dashboards and make changes to models and reports directly in the dashboards - either way, no coding is required.
Easy reporting
Empower your finance, sales, and operations analysts with a highly interactive intuitive drag-and- drop user interface for self-service reporting and easily share the report with anyone in the organisation; reports remain connected to underlying data; use OfficeConnect to work directly in Microsoft Office Suites, and refresh reports with a single click.
Drill down and across
Explore through to transactional level details to get the background context you need; see more granular data, and get answers to ad hoc questions.

Speed and Performance

Fast modelling, reporting, and analysis at any scale and complexity.
