Borexino is a pioneering experiment in detection of pp-chain and CNO-cycle solar neutrinos. The main challenges are achieving as ultra-low level of backgrounds and disentangling correlated backgrounds with high precision, and the latter requires a deep understanding of the detector response. To meet this requirement, a systematic characterization of the Borexino detector response has been developed. Moreover, we developed a new analysis tool accelerated by parallel processors. It reduces the converging time from hours to seconds, and enables an advanced multi-observable analysis to further improve the measurement precision.
