VIP Analytics has been a major innovation for our budgeting process. It used to take me 200-300 hours to prepare budgets using spreadsheets. With VIP Analytics, the entire process took less than 50 hours, and is expected to be even less next year. The data and information presented to Council and the public is more reliable than ever before.
VIP Analytics allows me to access data and reporting quickly in a way I want to see it, and the Excel Designer takes the reporting capabilities to the next level. We were also able to use Analytics to automate our budget process. Department heads could attach documentation supporting their requests right into the budget. VIP Analytics is a great administrative tool.
We just completed several Analytics training sessions with Jim Kimmel and the product is fantastic. More importantly, Jim’s understanding of the product and his ability to clearly present the capabilities while immediately addressing any of our questions was exceptional.
