AccountMate

AccountMate is a great product for wholesale and distributors. It manages the inventory cycles comprehensively, from purchasing to stocking, to sales and delivery. There are a great many tools available to manage inventory, properties, and financials. The availability to have third-party add-ons offers even greater opportunities to meet the needs of the end-user.The system is not really suited for certain types of service industries: legal, medical, and those businesses that invoice on time.

If you can use their provide Boomi integration, you may have a better experience because they say they'll have greater insight to data loads than we seem to have with our own Boomi integration. I also consider that we have had Host Analytics for several years and think we would benefit from a reimplementation (a somewhat common scenario with systems (or cars or girlfriends): "that system looks much more attractive, I'm ditching this... or maybe I should consider revisiting some basics")

Pros

AccountMate

  • Ease of use
  • Ability to easily adapt the solution to fit the needs of the end user
  • Integration of data across different platforms
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planful (formerly Host Analytics)

  • The Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite does a great job keeping all of our actual, forecast, and budget data together in one place. Loading new data into the application is fairly straight forward and allows us to quickly provide reports and analyses to our senior leadership team each month/quarter.
  • The Host Analytics Excel-Add In Tool is helpful for users who are more familiar with building and creating reports in Excel. While the reporting module in the core application is very easy to use and navigate, often times our team will utilize the Excel add-in tool to build more complex reports using the data from Host as we tend to have more experience with Excel based reporting.
  • Using Host has allowed us to drastically reduce the number of days it takes to close each month. We quickly load data via the data load rule, use the consolidations module to input any top side journal entries, and from there we are able to jump right into financial reporting.

Cons

AccountMate

  • Custom reports: The current system uses Crystal Reports, which is a bit cumbersome.
  • True cloud-based solution is missing
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planful (formerly Host Analytics)

  • Minor application quirks in the use functionality.
  • Updates are pushed to your application during specified maintenance windows, allowing for immediate use of the new functionality whether you were prepared or understood the changes or not. Any significant changes are clearly communicated ahead of time.

We are in our 5th year using HA and have renewed our contract already. We went through a major ERP conversion last fiscal year and at that time reevaluated whether or now we would stay with Host or move to another system. Host is meeting our needs for forecast/budget/report/etc and does so at a reasonable price so we saw no need to move to another system.

While there is still room for improvement (and I know they are working on it), I think Host Analytics is very user friendly, overall. Breaking the modules down, I give Reporting an A. It's very easy to learn, especially for those already familiar with Excel. The Budget model is a solid B as it takes a bit longer to learn.

Everyone is very responsive and is willing to jump on a call to help. We set up weekly calls with our CFL representative during the first month of Go-Live. This really helped us solve problems before they got out of hand. When using the Community, I also see representatives on there answering questions

Be sure you understand all the language in the initial contract as to what is included and what is not. The BRDD document although more detailed and also a signed document is not a contract and Host will not necessarily honor that document.Be sure your solutions architect has been with Host awhile and done numerous other implementations. The better qualified they are the better your implementation will go.Do you own homework, and be ready with your own documentation on process, what your proposed dimensions are and fields with the data to populate them.

Alternatives Considered

AccountMate

We use AccountMate for a number of reasons, particularly its ease of use and the ability to customize any part of the system (with source code residing on the end-user system--a HUGE advantage).
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

The cloud based aspect of Host makes it easier for multiple team members to be in the system at one time and see changes in real time without a lag. in prior experience with Oracle there has been a lag in the system to view changes made my other team members

Return on Investment

AccountMate

  • Allows us to quickly gain insight into the current and past performance of the company
Les Kule | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planful (formerly Host Analytics)

  • Host has helped eliminate a lot of the issues we were experiencing with preparing our financial budgets in Excel. Ultimately, our department has become extremely efficient at producing master budgets and forecasts.
  • The reporting module has made it easier to produce ad hoc reports easily and efficiently. There have been several projects that would have taken a full day to complete before Host. With Host, these projects only took a couple hours to complete.
