What is Phocas Software?

Phocas has built its business model on exceeding customer expectations.

We’ve operated on a subscription basis from the start and in the words of Phocas Group chairman and co-founder Paul Magee: ‘That puts the onus on us to perform’. And we like that. In fact, our whole company ecosystem is built around that ‘light bulb moment’ when customers achieve a breakthrough by seeing their business through fresh eyes.

Phocas does things differently.
Especially data discovery.

To us, successful Business Intelligence is about more than data – and this is where we speed away from the pack. We have a track record of delivering successful BI projects, in which we empower customers to grow the business, increase revenue, raise profit margins, lower employee costs, take Friday afternoon off for golf...

With offices in the UK, United States and Australia, our global presence continues to grow and a 97% customer retention rate tells us we’re on the right track. Successful Business Intelligence happens with Phocas because our entire culture is to deliver software that is more than just a tool; it is a solution.

Overall: This replaced "hand crafted" Excel and VBA sheets over a 10 day period to the consumer, we then developed Phocas to suit our needs and one drop of data updates all users with all views in 1 day.
Pros: Ease of use, ability to develop our own customised views, one change updates all consumers of the views-we can add more data and create relationships to enrich existing views to the consumer. Enable better decision making data in dashboard views allowing the consumer to pick and choose what is important today. We have never looked back - we chose Phocas to feed our front end business with tailor made views of data to enable swift decision making - we developed our support team to self create views from data feed through to data visualisation - this replaced our Excel and VBA sheets that were people hungry to produce - now we simply load our data periodically and the consumer can a see "all they want to see when they want to see it "
Cons: Understanding background of the product.

Overall: Phocas have been an amazing help with streamlining our business processes. Not only is it easy to gain insights into our market, the team at Phocas have made it as quick and easy as possible by setting up automatic synchronisations from our accounting software directly to Phocas so we always have the latest data on hand without any effort at all. A favourite tool for the staff here and can't recommend it enough.
Pros: Ease of use and navigation, ability to customise and a perfect support team!
Cons: The functionality is awesome, only think I can think of is to give more options with custom formatting dashboards.

Overall: My overall experience with Phocas has been good from the start. They are prompt in with a response when you have an issue and will help you get the results you are looking for when utilizing custom searches and in-depth calculations.
Pros: Phocas is incredibly easy to use and helps you dig into an type of business analytics you can think of for your business.
Cons: There are not many of CONS that I have with Phocas, but the biggest issue I have is the lack of graphics for dashboards and the ability to truly customize those graphics. Also, the graphics can be a little quirky at times.

Overall: We started with Phocas in 2009 with just the standard sales database for one region of our business but have now progressed to multiple sales databases for other business units with fully integrated rebates module as well as finance and procurement style database now, with plans to roll it out further in other parts of the business.
Pros: The ease of use of Phocas is what puts it at the top of our list for BI software. The set up of the data was quick and easy (with great support from the Phocas guys) and ability to drill down from top line data right into the detail of a transaction is what makes Phocas a great tool for us. Phocas is widely used across our business to track and analyse sales data, finance data and purchasing data with future plans to add more modules. The PUG Forum is also a good feature for me, if there is something that you don't know how to do then you'll find the info there or someone can point you in the right direction
Cons: Vizuals could use updating.
