Cloud-based corporate performance management software provider Host Analytics has introduced a free, 30-day trial program designed to let potential customers try its online application prior to purchase.

The new trial program offers potential Host Analytics customers two trial applications, free for a period of 30 days. First, a read-only application includes sample financial data that demonstrates the financial reporting capabilities of the software suite. Second, a customizable application lets users upload their own data and account structure so they can immediately start producing customized reporting. Full product training is included in the trial program.

The trial program also offers a subset of Host Analytics’ complete application suite for finance, including ad hoc reporting and analysis; executive reporting for presentation; benchmarking data from Host Analytics’ Decision Hub; and dashboards.

“The traditional [product selection] process is arduous, thanks to endless sales meetings, lots of chatter and very scripted, 'hands-off' demos,” said Host Analytics president and chief executive Jon Kondo. “Purchasing a software solution is an important decision for businesses, but without the ability for a real-world evaluation, businesses are taking a giant risk; Host Analytics’ new trial program changes that. What’s more, thanks to our cloud-based delivery method, implementation hassles are virtually eliminated.”
