Experience at Newport Restaurant Group
How did you learn about Multiview?
I got the opportunity to look for different solutions and so I essentially just started using Google. I found a company like a 3rd party company that you put in certain information of what you’re looking for in terms of your software criteria and then it feeds back some different options and Multiview was one of them. I had never heard of Multiview, but for me I like really good software; software that you don’t spend a whole lot of time trying to sort and manipulate data just so you can analyze it.
Why you chose Multiview
What I liked most about Multiview was that it is one platform. You basically separate data by company and business unit and you can get all of that data out and one reporter query. So analyzing data is much simpler with Multiview
One example that I had shared with somebody recently is somebody had asked me how many expense reports where in the legacy system; how many expense reports do you process in a monthly timeframe? And I couldn’t tell them, I had to have a temp help me and it took 4 hours. With Multiview there’s a simple button that you can click and when you set up employees as a vendor and so you can run a query and it takes about 30 seconds to figure out how many expense reports are processed on a monthly basis.
What would you say to someone if they were considering Multiview?
So what I would say to somebody if they were considering Multiview is seriously it the best system, everybody in my company is in love with Multiview and we don’t want to use anything else. You spend your time analyzing data and not just moving data around and wasting time correlating reports, shifting data and making reports look pretty.
