Acumatica

We work with clients from various fields and have not yet encountered cases where Acumatica is not suitable. It can be customized for any business. Some business-process a harder for customization but basically, everything is solvable.

I think Planful has a lot potential and the Planful team is actively working on improving it. We use it just for overhead forecasting and reporting. It was a perfect tool to move us from a spreadsheet process with errors and single sources for the truth. We had a well defined process, so it was easy adapt into the Planful system

Pros

Acumatica

  • Expense reporting - enabled by a smartphone, you can image receipts and create claims quickly
  • Chart of accounts - being able to drill down in an expense category to see the individual claims that make up the total is helpful
  • Reporting - I appreciate the ability to pull a standard report and export to Excel quickly and easily
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planful (formerly Host Analytics)

  • I often hear from my users, "the best thing about Host Analytics is the export to Excel feature so we can do our work there."
  • I'm struggling to come up with things it does "particularly well," so I think it would be a disservice to readers to make up something
Joshua Henke | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Acumatica

  • Email integration: Horribly clunky, requires users to share email password with Acumatica to allow use of outbound emails. Should be using a more secure method like access tokens.
  • Expense approval process: Once expense claims are approved, approvers (depending on role) can no longer see the approved/denied claims. Denial of claims requires a manual email/call to submitter instructing them to correct and resubmit the claim.
  • CRM: Allow for tracking of cases by the opportunity in addition to business accounts. This would allow for more accurate tracking of issues related to specific opportunities.
Anonymous | 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.

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

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.

For the most part, the system is extremely usable. The consolidation and reporting modules are straight-forward and easy to use as long as everything is set-up properly during implementation. The one module that can be somewhat difficult to use is the Workforce Planning module of Structured Planning. Additionally, the reports that come from Workforce Planning aren't as robust as we need them to be

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

After going through the initial implementation with Host Analytics and a re-implementation with Cervello (due to an ERP change, not due to a poor initial implementation), I've learned that you really must rely on your internal staff to bear most of the implementation burden. Use the vendor or partners for ideas and best-practice suggestions, and some of the easy-but-time-consuming work. Since you will ultimately be using and maintaining the application, you should be able to do most of it yourself.

Alternatives Considered

Acumatica

Acumatica trumps over QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions in many ways. First, Acumatica being in the cloud has given us agility in accessing the platform anywhere and anytime. Second, the dashboard creation feature of Acumatica has given us the ability to customize each dashboard of each of our employees. Lastly, the CRM solution of Acumatica enables us to track, manage, and monitor our sales team.
Parker Ong | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planful (formerly Host Analytics)

I have evaluated many other CPM systems, although it has been several years. The ones I looked at back then were Anaplan, Adaptive Insight, Longview, Prophix and Tagetik. My personal opinion was that Planful [(formerly Host Analytics)] was the best due to it's user interface and ease of use. It also checked all of the boxes as far as security, etc.

Return on Investment

Acumatica

  • Acumatica has saved us so much time, previously having multiple disparate systems for handling our many processes. Now we have one fully integrated system saving us time and money.
Nicole Ronchetti | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planful (formerly Host Analytics)

  • Implementing the Consolidation supported our acquisitions on disparate ERP systems and allowed us to drill-down to the source data from their system we didn't have access to.
  • We hadn't completed a budget cycle in 5 years due to the number of new acquisitions we brought on. Now we are in the midst of a fully realized consolidated budget plan.
  • We utilized Dynamic Planning for our Sales Analytics and ended contracts with several other BI companies in other divisions. We now have visibility into all companies.
