Prophix offers a powerful and flexible solution to bring data from a myriad of sources, then be able to consolidate | report | analyze in order to make business decisions. I used this tool for consolidating our financials as well as creating sales & procurement data bases. Not difficult to implement, with excellent post-sale support. Highly recommend this product!

We considered the initial cost high compared to our previous software (XL Reporter which is no longer supported) but comparative to a replacement software package. The learning curve is extremely steep and we have spent thousands on additional training and support and probably will spend thousands more to get the forecasting and budgeting complete. It would not surprise me if the cost of training and support would exceed the initial cost to purchase Prophix. The report writer is extremely poor and nearly impossible to edit and modify. For much of the formula building MDX language is required and not that easy for a non-programmer to learn/use. Unfortunately report writing in Prophix is not Excel based like with XL Reporter but an updated version is due out in January 2014 with a completely new (and hopefully better) report writer. The manual is not very helpful and is not up to date for version 10.

From a development and report writing aspect I would consider Prophix to be more of a programmer’s software package but once everything (budgeting, forecasting and reporting) has been completed it would be used as an fiancial/accounting software package.

I answered that I would use Prophix again. Not much choice now, we are invested in Prophix. It does have many benefits and no matter how difficult it can be to learn and use, we will make it work for us. Five year forecasting and combining data from our other systems with financial data are two real benefits we hope to realize in the future.
