User Reviews of Cetova Financial Analytics (C-FAR)

Submitted on April 24th, 2014 by an anonymous Cetova Financial Analytics (C-FAR) user.

C-FAR from Cetova is a consolidated financial reporting software suite that let’s you query your database as well as that of JD Edwards. It allows you to write and output easy to use reports based on the pulled information.

The Good…

I was pleasantly surprised by their interface. C-FAR adopts an incredibly graspable drag and drop interface that’s punctuated by familiar excel-like functionality. Writing concise reports manually before was an absolute abject nightmare, and I’m absolutely blown away by the amount of time I’ve cut down from making the entire process relatively automated. All you need to do is put what you want, where you want, and the application handles all the behind-the-scenes SQL Statements. I’m easily most impressed by the level of support I encountered, at no point when I had an issue or a question was I left waiting. As long as you contact them during the business day, the support team seems to always be available and is even willing to remote desktop to your machine.

The Bad…

The software has a bit of a learning curve. While if you’re at least somewhat versed in Finance and Computing you shouldn’t have much of a problem, users with little to no report-building experience will need training. (Which Cetova provides)
