Serviceware achieves 37 top-ranks in BARC'S The Planning Survey 20!

Serviceware Performance has achieved excellent customer ratings in the world's largest independent user survey of planning and budgeting software with 37 top positions and 26 leading positions in three peer groups.

The “Planning Survey 20” is based on findings from the world’s largest and most comprehensive survey of planning software users. A total of 1,406 people responded to the survey with 1,211 answering a series of detailed questions about their use of a product. Altogether, 23 products (or groups of products) are analyzed in detail. Serviceware Performance achieved consistently high ratings across all the KPIs (BARC key figures). 

It is the first time Serviceware has participated in BARC’s The Planning Survey with its planning solution Serviceware Performance (known as cubus outperform). The leading platform for planning, modeling, analysis and reporting convinced the growing customer base with a first-class overall package: quality and flexibility of the solution for specialist areas, excellent service supported by a reliable and innovative business partner. 

The Planning Survey 20 examines user feedback on planning product selection and usage across 30 criteria (KPIs) including business benefits, project success, business value, recommendation, customer satisfaction, customer experience, planning functionality and competitiveness.

“Customer feedback and customer satisfaction has been a huge part of our success and we are delighted with these results from such a broad user base,” said Harald Matzke, Managing Director at cubus – A Serviceware Company. “We will continue to work closely with all our customers to bring even more benefits to them to improve the customer experience further.”

In addition to The Planning Survey, BARC also conducts an annual Business Intelligence (BI) survey. Serviceware Performance has been the winner in Vendor Support and therefore Support Champion since it began 6 years ago. A 100% recommendation rate speaks for itself.
