Ability to design reports without IT involvement, though the initial setup was delayed beyond our expectations

What is most valuable?

Live data reporting and ability to design reports without IT involvement.

How has it helped my organization?

We have saved hours of Excel work producing the same results, which Hubble gives in minutes.

What needs improvement?

Exporting to Excel takes a lot of time when broken into sheets/files. We could not get monthly cash flow right as the system doesn’t take the opening of cash balance from the previous month, instead it takes it from the beginning of the year.

Lack of dashboards in the desktop version and web version require additional investment.

For how long have I used the solution?

Two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Yes, mostly while exporting to PDF, Excel breaks. Also, when the network connection is disabled, we face difficulty running reports even after reconnecting.

How are customer service and technical support?

An eight out of 10.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use a solution previously.

How was the initial setup?

Not complicated, but was delayed beyond our expectations.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I have some reservations on the Console licensing.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Mostly Hyperion.

What other advice do I have?

The implementation enables us to improve many things in JDE. My advice is to have JDE to be used as intended in best practices, the implementation of Hubble will be easier.

We can access all JDE tables and some tables outside of JDE

What is most valuable?

  • We can access all JDE tables and some tables outside of JDE.
  • Easy and intuitive
  • Ready templates
  • Use of JDE security and field names.
  • Monthly and quarterly reporting using the GL module.
  • Drill-downs
  • Hierarchies for reports in specific formats.

How has it helped my organization?

Reporting was dramatically improved. We can get the answer to practically any question quickly. All regular reporting comes from Hubble. All integrity issues are addressed using Hubble. It is all about speed, completeness, and ease of use.

What needs improvement?

I am not sure I understand the recently introduced new Insight pricing model. Otherwise, there are no areas of improvement at the present time.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for three years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

There were no deployment issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

There were no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

There were no scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I occasionally raise service requests using the Hubble portal. My questions are usually about how to do something. We get the answer quickly from competent customer service people based in the UK.

Technical Support:

Technical support is very good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used Hyperion, but it fell into disuse once Hubble was introduced. Hubble gives instant answers and is more user definable. It is also cheaper. We have now scrapped Hyperion.

How was the initial setup?

It has a simple setup.

What about the implementation team?

We used Insight consultants to do the installation. All reports were written by us.

What was our ROI?

I don't know what the ROI is.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I am not sure I understand the recently introduced new Insight pricing model.We only use Hubble, which queries our JDE database directly. We don't use Full Suite nor Analytics and Planning.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other options. Hubble is the only reporting/enquiry tool specifically written for JDE.

Being able to create calculations, hierarchies, aging buckets, etc. has reduced the Excel reports we used to have.

What is most valuable?

The speed and flexibility. Being able to create calculations, hierarchies, aging buckets, etc. has reduced the Excel reports we used to have.

How has it helped my organization?

We have reduced the number of errors by creating exception reports to catch setup issues before a transaction occurs. An example is a wrong GL class code on a new part number.

What needs improvement?

When exporting to Excel, it is values only. It would be nice to have the formulas exported or the ability to retrieve data into an Excel spreadsheet which already has formulas.

For example, a Hubble report may have a sum of a column at the bottom of the report. If I export the report to Excel, the sum is a static or fixed number. If I want to change a number in the column in Excel, the total doesn't change unless I add a formula. I don't know if it is possible for Hubble to export a report with a formula but it would be a nice feature, if they could.

For how long have I used the solution?

Five years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Some but they were addressed and fixed in a timely manner.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Excellent.

Technical Support:

Excellent.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No.

How was the initial setup?

Straightforward as well as upgrades.

What about the implementation team?

In-house.

What other advice do I have?

Great support team!
