User-friendly, agile and profitable - Valsight again proves excellent customer satisfaction in the world's largest survey on planning software in 2021.

The top rankings for Valsight in BARC’s planning software survey, The Planning Survey, show us again this year that finance and controlling teams are well on their way to mastering the challenges of the ever-changing business landscape with Valsight.

In addition to top marks for core applications in the KPIs planning functionality, forecasting and simulation and a total of 24 first-place rankings, we achieved a total of 21 leading rankings, and this in a focus group that has grown significantly.

In previous years, our excellent results in the BARC Planning Survey have already shown that users are more than satisfied with Valsight, especially in the categories of Project Success, Performance Satisfaction and Customer Experience.

We were able to increase the number of top rankings to 24 this year!

In addition to the results in 29 KPIs, The Planning Survey 21 also offers independent analyses by BARC experts.

100% of Valsight users who participated in The Planning Survey 21 are satisfied with the software – and this seems to be mainly due to the excellent support provided by our Valsight experts.

Users are not left alone with questions and emerging problems. On the contrary: customer satisfaction and first-class support are written in capital letters for us! The top rankings in the Vendor Support category show that we are not entirely wrong with this stance.

What our customers say

Very good support, very flexible solution that can be used without coding knowledge. Very user friendly and modern layout.

Consultant, consulting >2,500 employees

As a user, I was surprised how quickly we were able to set up the complex planning of a large corporation and make it simulatable (without the help of consultants). The simplicity, esp. by handling huge amounts of data is very valuable. Aspects that were important to us and had not yet been taken into account in the software were implemented quickly and to a high standard of quality. This customer-friendliness and agility impressed us.

Line of business employee, manufacturing, >2,500 employees

Very fast response time to individual questions and quick problem solving. Tool works error-free and with good performance. Very flexible and transparently prepared data and the control via the scenario manager is very well done.

In addition to the classic functions of our software, we place particular emphasis on offering users and decision-makers the best possible user experience. The top rankings in the corresponding categories Customer Experience and Ease-Of-Use not only confirm that we are absolutely right with this approach. But also that user experience is much more than a buzzword, namely a decisive factor for the success of the finance transformation.
