Likelihood to Recommend

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).

BizNet Software

This is well suited for accounting departments that are developing financial statements or daily reports that are dependent on ledger codes. It is less helpful with reporting that is customer or department specific. From a financial reporting perspective, this software allows you to build reports the way you want and does not tie you down to a fixed template.

Pros

  • Allows assumptions to be created for fringes, taxes, capital etc. We are now able to push these type of expenses to individual departments as opposed to a single department. Gives us true costs for each department.
  • The flexibility in revising and creating new sheets allows our organization to modify our budget/forecast approach without much downtime. Also, we can make these modifications internally . No need to hire consultants to complete these tasks.
  • Adaptive Insights is an easy to use/understand tool for end-users. Our users typically struggle with new systems but the Adaptive roll-out was very smooth with very little end-user angst.

  • Once a worksheet has been created, you can change a single cell and update the entire report. This makes it much easier than recreating a report every time you start.
  • It draws data directly from our database that can be filtered down in various ways. This allows us to get the data that we really need quicker.
Ryan Palumbo profile photo

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
  • The time it takes to draw information from the database can seem long and may make a person wonder if the program is working. It is, just be patient.
  • If you do not enable "Design Mode" while editing a worksheet, changing one cell can enable the data draw which interrupts workflow.

Lack of communication from BizNet on new policies with the resellers, changes in the policies that affect the client aren't positive in my opinion

Usability

Menus are easy to navigate, sheets are straightforward and flexible and you can work on your budget/forecasts without being at the office. The cloud based system makes it easy for users to complete their processes offsite and without needing there work provided computer. Creating new reports using both the web based Adaptive tool and OfficeConnect is quite simple with very minimal training.

We went pretty seamlessly into BizNet, but could have had lots of trouble if the professional service was not aware of our set up and use.

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 blows away Hyperion from an ease of use, functionality and performance standpoint. The reason we selected Adaptive initially was the flexibility of the tool (sheets), going from manual forecasts to a web based tool and being able to build assumptions into our budget and forecasting processes. Also, the cost of Adaptive licenses provided significant savings when compared to the annual fees that we paid Oracle for use and support of their system.

Super easy to share the spreadsheets. Have not tried the collaboration function yet. Look forward to that one though - a feature I have not had with other software like this.

Return on Investment

  • Budget and forecast cycles have been reduced due to the ease of data input by our end-users. We used to allow user a month to input annual budget data and we can now complete this process in two and a half weeks.
  • Forecasts used to be completed using Excel by our 17 divisions. Adaptive has allowed for us to complete the forecast process using the Adaptive tool which allows us to consolidate our forecasts immediately versus a manual process.
  • Month-end reporting used to take us 5 days to complete our package prior to using Adaptive. Our organization can now finalize our reporting in no more than 3 days due many of the reports coming straight from Adaptive.

  • Great product and easy to sell.
