More about BizView

Achieve better control over the entire process with BizView’s built-in workflow support for approval management. Be notified via email by BizView’s automatic message service and collaborate with colleagues through features for comments and discussion.

Integrate data from different steps in the planning process using driver based planning. For example, let volume-based sales forecasts by product and segment, or personnel budgets by profit center automatically generate figures to the P&L budget or forecast. BizView also supports spread keys for allocating revenues and cost over time.

BizView is a flexible solution that makes it possible to work with any dimension (e.g. account, employees, product groups, customers), any time unit (years, quarters, months, weeks, days) and any measure (hours, tonnage, revenues, costs).

One important feature is the ability to create dimensional objects or members (accounts, products, etc.), which in the planning phase do not exist in the back-end ERP system or other data sources. BizView can also manage an unlimited number of parallel versions of various planning scenarios.

With BizView’s open architecture it is easy to integrate your existing BI solutions. Switch seamlessly between your existing reports and BizView. Add planning capabilities with BizView to your existing BI investments in tools like MicroStrategy, Pentaho, Business Objects and Microsoft BI.

It is easy to configure permissions and security. For example, permission to approve figures for different profit centers. BizView also supports “single sign-on”, which means that the user does not need to login manually to BizView if the user is already authenticated in Windows.

Unlike solutions based on Excel, the planning data is stored in the BizView Datastore (MS SQL Server) with traceability and access security.
BizView Forecast and budget is fully integrated with BizView’s other features for reporting, analysis and dashboards.
