What are the unique features of BSC Designer Online

  • Present and manage the structure of your organization with departments and work groups
  • Manage different users with different access rights defined on the project level or on the level of selected indicator
  • Provide a 100% support for collaboration and simultaneous work on the same project and/or indicator

What are the unique features of BSC Designer PRO

Are both version fast?

  • BSC Designer PRO is a native Windows application, that means that it will work faster
  • BSC Designer Online is a Cloud-based software, it means that its speed will depend on the speed of your Internet connection, and how fast you web browser is working.

On a good connection and modern PC the difference between PRO and Online will be in milliseconds.

Bottom line

  • If there are more than 1 person involved in Balanced Scorecard, then you’ll need to have an account in BSC Designer Online
  • If you do travel a lot and need to have off-line access to your projects, then you will also need BSC Designer PRO
  • If you are the only person you will be working on the project, then you can do everything with PRO.
