The Planning Survey 24, BARC

The voice of the planning software user community has spoken

Software selection and strategy experts BARC have released The Planning Survey 24; the world's largest business planning survey.

Following years of success in BARC’s BI & Analytics Surveys, it’s the first time Phocas has EVER participated – strengthening our position on the map for financial planning and analysis (FP&A).

Over 1200 users provided detailed feedback about 21 planning tools, ranking the software across 33 Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Phocas has secured 8 top rankings and 26 leading positions across three peer groups, outperforming dominant players such as Anaplan, Board, Prophix and Vena.

By far, our stand-out performance is in the ‘Reporting/Analysis’ category with perfect 10s across all our three peer groups; proof that FP&A built on BI is appealing to product-oriented businesses.
