Bizzscore: the Dutch performance management solution
Bizzscore is a solution which falls under the category of innovative and niche products in our research. This category is meant for products that are aimed at developing a specific element of Business Intelligence. Bizzscore focuses on performance management and is not suitable as a general BI tool.
Bizzscore supports many models in the areas of performance and quality management. Models like the Balanced Scorecard, INK-models, EFQM, and several other quality models.
This software builds on Microsoft BI
Bizzscore is actually not a separate software product, but can be seen as an ‘add-on’ to the Microsoft product stack, with a Microsoft SQL-server at its base. Microsoft’s products are required, so they have to either be present or will have to be purchased separately.
Modular build-up of Bizzscore
Bizzscore’s product portfolio consists of several modules, namely Portal, Bizzdefiner, Bizzdata, Bizzforms and Bizzmanager. All these modules work together smoothly. The organization behind this tool claims that companies can save up to 60% of their time on periodic reports as well as a 40% increase in speed and efficiency in reporting.
VCD: the supplier of Bizzscore
Bizzscore was originally created by EFM-software and was sold to VCD in 2012. It’s one of the bigger independent ICT-suppliers in the Netherlands and has more than 375 employees. They have a ‘full-service’ package, as they call it, from consultancy and application development to supplying the infrastructure and maintenance.
VCD Business Intelligence is a separate part of the VCD line, which delivers Qlik and SAP BI-solutions besides Bizzscore. It’s also possible to follow product training at VCD and they have a separate help desk for BI questions.
Bizzscore is especially known in the Benelux and VCD targets specific markets with this solution, like municipalities, healthcare, retail, and insurance companies.
