    We are looking at Host Analytics for financial planning, financial consolidation and reporting. Wondering if anyone is using this with NAV? If yes, what do you use it for and how do you like it? How was the integration process and does it need much care and feeding regularly? I'd appreciate any insight you might have.

    If you are using another solution for financial reporting and modeling and you love it we'd appreciate hearing about that too.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Andrea,

    Curious to know why you wouldn't look at PowerBI solution for analytics & reporting? I am looking at that for all sales and financial reporting so would be interesting to know your views on that.

    Thanks for this question Meenakshi. This is more than a general reporting needs. We actually are dabbling with PowerBI for that.

    We are interested in financial modeling and reporting and most specifically are in need of a solution for financial consolidation across multiple companies using a variety of systems. At a super high level it seems like a cloud based system like Host could meet that need but wanted to see if the community had experience with this or thoughts on other effective solutions.

    Thanks.

    Have you looked at Tableau for your needs? I know that's not the name to be mentioned in Microsoft world but it's a contender and quite powerful.
