    Retail, professional services, non-manufacturing, or non-inventory-based clients are a great fit.

    Personally, I was always very satisfied with the Budget Maestro product and platform. I used Hyperion Essbase in my prior company and felt Analytics Maestro had very similar capabilities and features which made learning the product very easy. The ongoing support has been tremendous and this is an area I find many competitors in the marketplace to have room for improvement.

    • Took some time to roll out the cloud-based solution.
    • The older version (not cloud-based) we used took about an hour to refresh after data load.
    • The older version did take some time learning how to use the product to its fullest capabilities.

        Needs some work. Support staff seem to be computer people, not accountants or users of the system. Their answers sometimes seem short and computer-based. Not answered in a way that says, "I have thought through this and here is what I see to do."

        I find Accounting Power to have more flexibility, power, and reporting capability than QuickBooks Online with a simpler interface.

        Our company evaluated 6 product offerings in the market place a year ago and felt Budget Maestro and Vena offered the largest return on our investment at their price points. We have always been very satisfied with the product and its customer service. Since we have grown over 600% over 4 years, many of the new layers of management used other products in prior careers and we are currently at a point where the entire organization may be transitioning to an ERP solution to manage all finance and accounting functions. I would always recommend Budget Maestro as a great budgeting and analytical tool for FP&A teams as we were able to accomplish a high amount of monthly reports with a small team over the years.

        • We were a very small company growing by acquisition so it worked well during these phases of our company growth.
        • The return for our cost was tremendous especially in comparison to peers in the market.
        • Analytics Maestro allowed us to grow without adding headcount by building efficient reports that can easily be mass-produced for all branches within our organization.
