    Hello Fellow GPUG Members,

    I hope everyone is staying safe and well.

    I would like to get some feedback from anyone who has used Prospero (MSX Group). We are currently testing it. After using Management Reporter and Forecaster for several years we are ready to consolidate the maintenance needed for each of the programs. 8-)

    Thanks

    Hi Joni, we've had a chance to talk about Prospero, but wanted to also do a quick response at group level.  I've used Prospero almost since the beginning of the product and have found that it can do pretty much anything that I can imagine for reporting (no more excel downloads to slice and dice).  It's much more powerful than FRx and easier to use as well.  My department heads use it to review their budget to actual and grant spending and all like that they have easy to read snapshots and detail as well.  We implemented budget as soon as it came out and I've been really pleased with the results.   Customer support helped me set up tuition (headcount and revenue by program),  endowments, and also release from restriction in easy to use input areas.  That's in addition to the typical monthly budget that department heads complete.  We started working with Prospero when we were on Colleague (school software) and then it moved with us to GP (without needing to re-write reports as I was able to keep the account structure the same).  Customer support is excellent and turnaround fast.  I highly recommend Prospero as a report writing option.
