MS Office® integration

Bring the power of Board into your MS Office environment.

Easily access Board’s multidimensional data models directly from your Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, and Word applications with the Board Office Add-in.
Run drill-down, drill-anywhere, slice and dice, and ad-hoc queries directly from Excel spreadsheets or use Board tables, charts, and gauges to create dynamic, self-updating Word documents and PowerPoint slides.

Use Excel® as a Board client

The Board Office Add-in offers the capability to go beyond the standard Excel reporting tools to directly access and use Board reports directly within the familiar Excel environment. A live link to the source data held in Board allows users to make changes to figures, change analysis dimensions, and drill down further to related information while maintaining the integrity of the original data source.

What’s more, the Board Office Add-in supports both online and offline data entry in Excel. With its offline capability, the Add-in makes data collection processes more efficient: users can work without being connected to Board and can synchronize data automatically when they first reconnect, without affecting the integrity, consistency, and traceability of data.
