(Reviewed on 06 November 2019) "AP Reporting made easy"

What do you like best?

Our client's AP person was overwhelmed by invoices prior to this implementation. Now, we are inputting many more into our ERP on a daily basis and our AP person can handle different tasks.

What do you dislike?

The software implentation took upfront time and costs, but it was worth it in the end.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lost invoices, long approval cycles, and quicker input into our ERP system.

What do you dislike?

I miss manual data entry

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are automating the whole AP process from start to finish, transforming what was historically a very manual, labor heavy team to a well oiled, fully automated AP machine.

What do you like best?

Goby’s data accuracy and completeness are above and beyond others! Invoices are turned into useful with zero touchpoints on our end – a huge upgrade from our previous system

What do you dislike?

The one big one that sticks out to me is that Implementation is a lot of work, but the overall result is excellent due to their amazing implementation team - was a high touch process

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Manual AP processes – from acquisition to payment

(Reviewed on 07 May 2019) "Excellent to Work With"

What do you like best?

Allie has been a goldmine of information and ideas to help streamline and automate reporting. As someone who needs to submit reporting to GOBY for them to pass on to their clients, she has helped make the process easy, is accessible for questions and prompt with responses.

What do you dislike?

I don't really have any complaints. GOBY has made this process easy. As someone who was thrown into a situation where I needed to provide a report for a client that I had not seen and couldn't find in our company's files, Allie really saved the day and made the process of completing the report as painless as possible.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Talk to a rep who can help walk you through the process to understand the benefits.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the ability to present information about trash and recycling disposal and equipment rentals in a clear and concise way that is not simply an Excel spreadsheet. The communication and clarity between us and our mutual client certainly is better for GOBY's services.

(Reviewed on 09 April 2019) "Ton of time savings for AP"

What do you like best?

Whereas our previous software was really just an electronic database for our bills that we still had to manually put in, Goby actually automates the collection of the bills and approves on our behalf. The time savings have been exponential. I also really like the ability to approve bills in email.

What do you dislike?

When we start working with certain vendors, bills there can be a couple of errors, but that's really only at the start and it's infrequent. Goby team & software is responsive about correctly coding/adjusting. It's not 100% automated (90+%) but that's the nature of the beast.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yardi PayScan is a manual bill storage system. Goby automates AP.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Spending way too much time manually uploading bills, approving, not allowing us to focus on larger initiatives. Tons of late fees, those are gone now. We were looking to hire more help in our department and this has saved us from doing so.

(Reviewed on 07 March 2019) "strategic decisions backed by powerful analytics"

What do you like best?

thanks to this very useful tool, we automate what is traditionally a paper-based and manual process through the implementation of user-friendly software. All actions are now taken electronically and there is no paper in sight. We improve the process by introducing a pre-approval step so that costs are more easily controlled and knowledge of the budget holder is guaranteed before any expenditure commitment.

What do you dislike?

At the beginning the process of implementing it was a bit extensive but despite all this we obtained a very perfect product. Potential users should know that this is only part of the package. I can not say enough about the implementation team, they did it painlessly!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

My recommendation for other users who want to use Goby is that it monitors all the use of public services in all our commercial office properties, makes monthly reports, provides reports on city energy benchmarking ordinances, performs and maintains certifications of sustainability. Easy to use for staff at all levels, reduced processing times as well as full visibility over all invoices on the system Easy to raise POs, so no excuses. Easy to change routing of approval if a PO has a particular need for customised approval. We use verify (as an option in addition to approve) to ensure that costs coded to particular account codes are reviewed as appropriate to that code before the PO is approved.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Goby executes and supervises all aspects of public services for my property and company, use, cost, portfolio comparisons, maintains historical data of them and, most importantly, puts them at my disposal when I need them, for which need very useful the truth

(Reviewed on 07 March 2019) "powerful, cloud-based data automation platform is driven by refined"

What do you like best?

i like The software is organized and streamlined so that all my records are clear and easy to find. I like that there are links and multiple ways to get to my desired page. The dashboard is provides a good summary of my data. I also love the customizable reports that I can export. Uniform application to all our office properties which has improved accuracy, shortened timelines, and provides useful reporting.

What do you dislike?

I have presented a problem with the reporting functionality is not exactly what we need. The data is there and GOBY has been working on the reports that are exactly what we want but that until now have been limited by the software, but even so the problem is not so big since it has been a very useful tool in my company

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend this software widely and it is very easy to use and help in the process. The Strategic Sustainability Consulting Methodology Leader in the Goby Market ESG evaluates the portfolio and the sustainability of the construction through three value drivers: fiscal gains through operational efficiencies, value of assets through social / market recognition programs and strategic value through risk mitigation planning. The platform provides plenty of ways to view, find and assess utility data.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

allows the user to interpret and aggregate large amounts of data that can used to improve business processes. Helps us with utility data collection and management.

(Reviewed on 28 February 2019) "Strong Data Management Expertise | Superior Staff"

What do you like best?

Goby is a long-standing GRESB Premier Partner instrumental in conquering the last mile of asset-level energy/water/waste/GHG data. This is very hard, and I've heard from multiple Goby clients how the data acquisition process has resulted in significant insights that drive OpEx savings. Many leading institutional real estate private equity firms have come to lean on Goby for their strength in data gathering/analysis, and ESG consulting expertise.

What do you dislike?

Accessing asset-level data is not an easy process, wrought with multi-party communications across organizational silos. It takes time and requires patience and persistence. Working the process is hard and although many things will go right, sometimes more patience is required.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Goby is a long-standing GRESB Premier Partner helping drive progress in the institutional real estate community. GRESB receives over 900 submissions from fund managers and REITs globally. I hear independently from many Goby clients that they perform outstanding work, and are a pleasure to work with.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's all about gathering accurate data, analyzing it, and making solid business decisions. Goby has helped the institutional real estate industry move forward by providing private equity fund managers and REITs with an accurate portfolio view that they then share with pension fund investors who seek superior risk-adjusted returns, publish GHG emission results. etc.

Multiple sustainability services for utility usage record keeping and reporting, EPA ENERGY STAR monthly updating, city Energy Benchmarking Ordinance Compliance, LEED Certification, and other ESG certifications (GRESB, Fitwell).

What do you dislike?

No concerns or issues...........................................

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Highly recommend Goby for the above services they provide to our company.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We own multiple properties that are managed by multiple property management companies. Using Goby at all our properties has created a simple, uniform process for tracking and reporting utility usage in a timely and reliable manner, i.e. much more accurate and timely reporting. Using Goby for all EPA ENERGY STAR analysis increased our ENERGY STAR score at nearly every property because they really understand the details and know how to create the best value.
