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).

Coupa

Our main goals were to drive value by focusing on adoption by all, increased visibility in spend, and compliance. Coupa is very easy to use and does not feel like an ERP. Our end users like the easy to use, intuitive interface. A side benefit that we have experienced is that we were able to get rid of a shadow system that our IT department was using to track spending. They are able to use Coupa to track committed and actual spend and reconcile it their budgets and forecasts.

Pros

  • Adaptive Insights has so many good resources and easy filtering capabilities with active searching. When you go to a section of Adaptive Insights, you will see filters at the top of the page. As you change them, the contents of the page change to suit what you're looking for. This makes it easy to find the resources you need!
  • As previously mentioned, the FP&A Glossary is a great feature due to its concise definition of many common terms in FP&A.
  • I have not had much experience with the eBooks section of Adaptive Insights, but there are is a wide variety of topics to explore, such as rolling forecasts, and best practices for controllers.

  • Key feature for our organization is to control and manage spend.
  • Tracking budget and seeing insights into how our organization is spending money is critical.
  • Ease of use was crucial for all end users. I can submit invoices and track where they are in the process easily.

Cons

  • On the Infographics page, I would love to see a thumbnail of the infographic before clicking on it. In general, I love that when you hover over a box, you get a more detailed description, but I would also love the ability to hover and then click to see a thumbnail before opening the full page.
  • Similarly, I think the Videos page should have the length of each video somewhere on the squares. This would help people judge how much time they would need to watch each one all the way through, and be able to make an informed decision about how many they could watch in between meetings.
  • There is no free text search bar.

  • Coupa supports flat file integration out of the box, but we wanted dynamic integration with NetSuite. This was not easily accomplished and we needed to hire another company called SuiteSkies to handle this real time integration.
  • Coupa was missing the ability self service supplier maintenance and onboarding. Coupa was willing to listen to me and several other customers. They asked me to join a Customer Advisory Board that helped provide feedback and ideas on how to deliver a new module called Supplier Information Management.

Likelihood to Renew

Adaptive Insights8.5
Based on 32 answers
We just recently renewed our contract and I wouldn't hesitate to renew again. First, Adaptive as a company has a great customer-first attitude and they're great to work with. Their customer service team is fantastic. Second, they are constantly trying to improve the product and make it better, but not losing sight of what we really need. Also, the longer you use the product the more it is filled with priceless data all in one spot with instant access to report on and dig into.

Usability

Adaptive Insights7.7
Based on 75 answers
The Adaptive Suite is well-rounded. We love the add-on OfficeConnect because it allows us to quickly pull data from Adaptive in a report format. Once you set up the OfficeConnect, it's as easy as pushing a button to re-run. This has been especially helpful for month-end reporting and reconciling data in the Budget.

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.

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

For us, it came down to Adaptive Insights and Host Analytics. The benefits seemed very comparable. We ultimately decided on Adaptive Insights because it cost less to implement and the time to implement was less compared to Host Analytics. We are VERY happy with our decision to go with Adaptive Insights.

Return on Investment

  • We use Adaptive Planning as our main budgeting software. Adaptive is always releasing new features to improve the functionality, and this makes working it is much more efficient.
  • Adaptive has many resources to help you use Adaptive. However, not many answers can be found on Google.

  • The Sourcing Module has returned our investment 23 times on an annualized basis.
  • We're now SOX compliant and as a public company, that's keeping us compliant with our corporate charter.
  • Having one central invoicing location has reduced our AP calls significantly. Our suppliers now have visibility into where their invoice is in the payment cycle. We also have a much higher invoice-to-pay cycle.
