Our 2019 mission is to make things great. As we continue to work on developing our leading Corporate Performance Management software, we also want to ensure our customers have a fantastic user experience, stellar customer service and support, and feel confident in relying on Prophix to support their success.
Earlier this month, we released our 2019 Winter update. There are a lot of exciting features and enhancements in this release that will make your life in the Office of Finance easier and more productive.
As with all our releases, our newest product features focus on three core principles: core FP&A capabilities, user experience, and innovation. Let’s examine the latest update in more detail.
Data history is a valuable auditing tool that can provide contextual information for consolidation, planning, and security.
With the Winter 2019 release, you can easily review users’ access and how it has changed over two points in time. This capability will call attention to key changes, rather than simply provide you with a list of all actions.
We have also added an “object history” for security objects, allowing you to get a summary of login details including forgotten passwords, password changes, authorization access errors, and failed logins.
With improvements to Announcement Studio in the latest update, administrators can now compose announcements, attach files, set start and end dates, and send targeted announcements by assigning users or groups.
Office 365 Integration
Building on our PowerPoint integration from the 2018 Fall release, Prophix can now also seamlessly integrate with Excel.
Whether you’re working in a local or cloud install of Excel for Office 365, you can activate the Prophix plugin, navigate to the desired Prophix data view and import it to your Excel spreadsheet. With your Prophix data now in Excel, you can perform calculations for ad-hoc analysis, run existing models, or perform analysis with existing Excel tools and add-ons. If you need to keep your results, you can export your results back into Prophix.
Security in the Cloud
As with many of our releases, the 2019 Winter release is available for Prophix Cloud. Prophix maintains a comprehensive set of compliance certifications to continually validate the level of trust in its solutions. We have undergone several external audits designed to thoroughly test our systems and internal controls. Prophix has achieved several key industry and globally recognized certifications and we have designed our internal controls against ISO 27001:2013 standards.
