Adaptive Insights

It is very helpful for budgeting and reporting. I love how easy it is to automate reports and presentations. It can be more difficult to plan specific activities. It feels more high-level than activity-level. It shows totals rather than individual transactions (either past or future transactions).

It is well suited for a small company of maybe 300-400. It is less appropriate for companies in areas where a transit and parking benefit is a must.

Pros

  • I love how easy it is to track software and general amortizations in Adaptive. The software has been an issue with my past employers, but it flows very easily here in Adaptive.
  • We also use Adaptive's OfficeConnect for easy reporting. It has helped us automate our reporting as we work with internal departments. We have the reports built, and the software and can refresh all of them simultaneously, reducing generation time and giving us more time for analysis.
  • We are building out more operational metrics now. We are starting to track sales opportunities across different business segments to see the correlation between spending activities and opportunity generation. This helps us set better targets in the future. This paired with OfficeConnect also makes it very easy to track and report on operational metrics in addition to financial metrics.

  • Great front face - updated graphics and advanced technology.
  • Video Library and an option to create your own videos.
  • Option to do a comparison chart of benefit plans.
  • Easy on the employee's eye.

Cons

  • The format of reports when downloaded to Excel or PowerPoint could use improvement.
  • Would be nice if you could inactivate GL accounts when they are no longer being used.
  • Suppress rows functionality when set by the administrator to default to suppress if not data doesn't always seem to work.
Gary Grzesiak profile photo
  • Great at selling their product but not keeping their promises.
  • Too many glitches and they always advise it will be updated/corrected on their next "quarterly update".
  • They can't administer QTB plans (parking and transit) which is an essential benefit plan offered to companies. They didn't officially come out with this news until after we had implemented and launched the program. During implementation, they made it appear like it would work.

Support requests are always handled promptly and resolved favourably.Many user support requests arise during initial deployment and use and often represent questions relating to best methods or how to approach their particular situation, which we gladly assist with as we provide the appropriate skills transfer training and assistance.As clients become more knowledgeable in working with the product suite then they tend not to ask many questions.

Implementation

Adaptive Insights8.2
Based on 13 answers


Implementation was very easy and fast. The ability to
customize Levels and Dimensions to match our Organization’s structure and
accounting practices is great. Our organization is continually changing and
adaptive has the ability to be changed without issue.

Breadth of Deployment

It is used throughout the company in different divisions and at our corporate level. When used in a division recently the personnel from different departments directly inputted data and monitored their budget against actual. It is very user friendly and flexible.

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive Suite gave us what we needed and fit our use case perfectly. We did short list Host Analytics and they were neck and neck with Adaptive and it was a win/win for us and we would have been successful with either tool. My familiarity with Adaptive, the simplicity of self implementation, the product vision,and the turn around time to get the company up and running made gave Adaptive the edge.

I thought it would be a good facelift and upgrade to BeneTrac which was outdated and hadn't done anything to change the look and feel of their platform. Only to find out Benetrac is more adaptable to manual changes and needs.

Return on Investment

  • Staffing. Almost certain we would have had to hire a full-time budget analyst to process budgets pre-Adaptive. Savings in labor for salary and benefits is about $150 k annually.
  • Quicker ability to report and complete the budget process. Before Adaptive, the budget process took about 4 months. We have shrunk the time required to about 3 months with additional time now for analysis.
  • What if reporting. Nice to see the impact of changes in the budget with a quick turn around time to report.
Bryan Schmidt profile photo
  • It was a negative impact because we launched the program during open enrollment only to revert back to the old platform, BeneTrac, 3 months later.
  • Bad impression on the benefits team to implement a program that didn't deliver.
