"Halo for the people"
Two things, Service and Delivery - Halo offers more than just a great user friendly business analytics/intelligence solution to our business. Halo has an admirable ability of being able to gauge into our business requirements and promptly offer the intended solution. I can vouch that all our previous business transitions were made easy by Halo as the service itself, tells that their massive impact given that their strong approach in a Customer focus nature, we value so dearly.

"Great Data Visualization!"
The presales support was first rate! What other company will give you a proof of concept using your data before you sign any contracts! After the sale the support and contact did not drop off and a team member is always in contact making sure you are happy with the solution. The team is also genuinely interested in your feedback in terms of making the solution better and more effective - they WANT information to in turn help their development efforts. Training was very effective and the trainers have been wonderful. They are easy to follow and the manual and instructions have been written well.
You will find that data visualization is easy and you can SEE what your data is doing. We do wish that formatting was a little easier or there were additional options for formatting. The learning curve can be a little steep on the backend, especially if you do not have a dedicated technical resource. Be sure you are ready to take that on or have Halo set up that structure for you.
Do your homework and ask lots of questions - but let Halo show you a proof of concept! It is amazing and you will realize what you are missing in analyzing your data. Know that the same support and commitment you receive during presales does not stop once you sign your contract - you will receive the same support months after!

"Halo has unlocked the data around our organization."
Support from the point of sale and beyond. I have never been sold a product where the vendor kept constant contact even after the sale and install. Halo truly cares about their customers and their product, and we look forward to a long successful relationship with them. Prism is extremely user friendly, drag and drop measures and dimensions to quickly and easily answer questions about your business. Only software/solution to address data quality as a key part of the ETL process. Solution experts who really know my business and our ERP system. Training was exceptional. Prebuilt templates to address industry specific needs.
While the visual front end is very easy to use and powerful, I do wish we had a little more formatting control. Especially around exported visuals to Excel or PDF. I would like to see a one page dashboard print option to give quick insight to users not wanting to dive into Halo.

"Halo Provides Management Tools to Focus on Important Items"
Halo provides a quick visual on what issues management may want to investigate further. I really like that Halo provides an easy to understand interface that allows each user to quickly look at specific data they need without having to request from IT. I really like the ability to go back in time and look at specific activity. The Halo team have been super responsive and supportive. They have excellent follow up and are very knowledgeable about business processes. The dashboards and view we used with a previous product were more of a macro view, while Halo allows us a more precision view into our business environment. We are able to utilize the information Halo provides in order to make business decisions quickly.
There really is not much I do not like. It has been easy for each of our employees to use.

Halo's latest solution exceeds all expectations
Software and support are great. Our company had several upgrades and we had assistance during each one. The main value is the ability to blend data and use the pre-built dashboards and reports. These allow to see value right away. Whole project was up and running in just a few weeks.
Their app doesn't have all functions that the desktop version has but considering this type of software we normally use desktop versions regardless.
Make sure to take advantage of the proof of concept. This is when you see your data working in their system and it gives you a good sense on how you'll be using it on your daily activities.

Halo exceeds with lstest release of thier BI solution
I feel the customer support and quality of the software is fantastic. we have gone through 6 upgrades without issues, and the support was working with us every step of the way, without any extra costs other than the annual maintenance. The other real benefit we experienced was the ability to import data from multiple sets of systems, integrate them into one cohesive data set, validate the data, and deliver actionable prebuild templates for our industry.
As Halo grows the software is getting better and better, they are investing heavily with industry experts and is becoming a Tier one supplier with more knowledge than just another BI platform.
Halo delivers a premium BI solution that is more that just easy to use, state of Art solution. The products time to value is fantastic you can have BI dashboards available in half the time of many competitors, and can be supported by users in the departments with little support from IT. We really were excited about the pre-built interfaces to many of the standard ERP and CRM solutions, along with Standard view templates by industry and company departments requirements. With the most recent release they know have predictive analytics to allow you to forecast "look forward" trends based upon industry standard predictive models.

Halo has unlocked the data from the Dynamics AX safe
Support from the point of sale and beyond. I have never been sold a product where the vendor kept constant contact even after the sale and install. Halo truly cares about their customers and their product, and we look forward to a long successful relationship with them. Prism is extremely user friendly, drag and drop measures and dimensions to quickly and easily answer questions about your business. Only software/solution to address data quality as a key part of the ETL process. Solution experts who really know my business and our ERP system. Training was exceptional. Prebuilt templates to address industry specific needs.
Wish we could have moved forward with our BI approval faster. This was on us not Halo we just were not sure as a Business what we wanted. But once we had our demo it was clear Halo was our top choice. Power BI put a wrench in this process giving pause from our Executives, but once I tried to replicate some reports in Power BI and saw how large the learning curve was and that it did not include the foundation of any BI solution (a data warehouse) Halo again was where we turned.
Prior to having a BI solution we were like many other companies I am sure. Exporting data straight from our ERP system into mostly Excel based reports. This was not only time consuming but also led to many errors in reporting, often having more than one version of the truth. That is why we decided to explore what our options were with BI. During our evaluation of many different BI vendors/software we quickly saw Halo rise above the rest. Halo Source is everything you need from a data warehouse, and cube creation perspective. On top of that, it is using full Microsoft based technology which makes the learning curve extremely fast, even for those non-developers. A deciding factor for Halo was the data quality module. Everyone has some form of dirty data, but Halo has a solution for that. It was the only company that offered this sort of feature and was a major reason we selected Halo as our business intelligence solution. You absolutely do not need to know how to write SQL to spin up your own data warehouse and cubes for use with Halo Prism. On the topic of Prism it is very streamlined visualization tool. Drag and drop with as many visual options as you would need. Prism has allowed us to gain insight into our data that we have struggled see. We truly believe that this will be one our most successfully projects that has the largest impact since our ERP implementation, and even then this is really the icing on the cake for our complete ERP suite.

Not just a product, a solution!
Easy-to-use front end for dashboarding and reporting. Most users pick up on navigation very quickly and are excited to be able to view their data from many different perspectives. Simplicity in use for end users with a powerful data warehouse and ETL to provide the data to them are a great combination. Having it be a mobile solution as well was key for our user base. Customer support has been excellent to compliment the solution.
Very good solution overall and a lot to like here. If I had to pick something it would be enhancing formatted reporting, though I haven't seen many solutions that address this well today and also provide the benefits Halo provides in one package.
Halo BI has developed a fantastic product for solving the analytical problems a company typically encounters. Pairing a strong data engine (data warehouse, ETL) with an easy-to-use front end they've created a solution that we embraced quickly and appeased both the technical data guru's and the data consumers who just want to drag, drop, point and click. Mobile reporting and the ability to handle forecasting round out the offering nicely.

Halo Prism
The portal is very user friendly with lots of features. The ETL Tool is very good and easier to use than SSIS and other tools. Manu Ikkala has been a very knowledgeable and very prompt in his support.
The ability to show lots of measures against the time dimension
The overall experience of this product has been very good and satisfying. It has 2 applications. The webportal and the etl tool. Both are very user friendly and easy to use and develop in.
