Board International, the #1 Decision-Making Platform provider, today announced it has been rated as an Exemplary vendor in Ventana Research’s 2022 Business Planning Value Index.

The Business Planning Value Index is a quantified, research-based index evaluating technology providers and products. It is based on a comprehensive examination of 14 vendors' products in seven evaluation categories, five that evaluate the products' experience and the ability to support the breadth and depth of business and technology needs for business planning and two that address customer experience and the supporting vendor validation and total cost of ownership/return on investment. Product experience categories include usability, manageability, reliability, capability and adaptability. As an Exemplary vendor, Board International is recognized as a Value Index Leader in the Usability and Validation categories.

“Business Planning technology is both an essential priority and a winning ingredient for the success of enterprise organizations today,” said Robert Kugel, Senior VP - Research Director at Ventana Research. “Through our extensive analysis of product and customer experience, Board International is rated in our research as an Exemplary vendor. Congratulations to the Board team for this outstanding achievement.”

“It is awesome to receive analyst endorsement which goes beyond traditional feature lists and focuses on the business value, our technology can deliver for Board’s enterprise customers," said Marco Limena, CEO of Board International. “Board delivers vital business outcomes for customers every day, and it is fantastic to receive recognition of this valuable business planning expertise from Ventana.”

In November 2021, Board International also announced it received a Ventana Digital Leadership Award in Operations and Supply Chain with its customer Burberry who uses Board to support the digitization of merchandising buying processes from global assortment definition to defining an initial buy by region, store and size; including visualization of the assortment at every step of the process and utilization of analytics to support key decisions around depth and width of the buy.
