Is Board right for your business?

Board is a great fit for many businesses. Find out if it's the right choice for you! Are you looking for a Board demo, technical support, product or pricing information or to simply to compare Board with competitive options? Quickly get answers and the information you need.

BOARD provides a complete Visual Modeling environment to create sophisticated models for the allocation of costs and earnings, generating detailed views of company profitability and optimizing pricing, product inventory, bundling and commercial policies.

Thanks to the multi-dimensional logic, costs and earnings can be calculated to the lowest level of detail and automatically distributed by aggregation to different objects, allowing immediate association of several analysis perspectives (e.g. highlighting product earnings in relation to a specific customer).

In this way, in addition to the traditional marginality by customer and product, BOARD makes it possible to calculate profitability at various levels of hierarchy and drill-up and drill-down to aggregate and disaggregate data for each analytical or reporting dimension.

The multi-dimensional “what-if” and “goal seeking” capabilities make it possible to test hypothetical scenarios to verify the potential impact of future events or new business strategies, providing a powerful tool for simulating and optimizing corporate profitability.

In addition to offering multidimensional and simulation capabilities, BOARD stands out from conventional cost controlling solutions for its ability to integrate margin analysis with the processes of Budgeting, Planning and Forecasting, providing control of the future economic performance of the entire organization.
