Adaptive Insights

Adaptive Insights is well suited for many business sizes, including small companies to companies with billions of dollars in revenue. Its flexibility with customization and the various options is very attractive.

GoDaddy Bookkeeping

Perfect for US market but not transferable to UK market, needs some upgrades for this. Even when set up with a UK address it won't allow changes in tax year end, presuming that tax year starts Jan - Dec. Also shows dollars instead of pounds even though figures were correct with solution.

Pros

  • Adaptive allows for more detailed budgeting.
  • Adaptive allows managers to have more control over and take ownership of their budgets.
  • Adaptive integrates fairly easily to most ERP and CRM systems.
  • Through integration and the use of Office Connect, monthly and ad hoc reporting is quick and almost painless.

  • Downloads automatically from eBay.
  • Downloads transactions automatically from Paypal.
  • Easy to upload transactions from a csv to make a tax year complete should you change to the solution part way through your tax year.
  • Dashboard is easy to read with visuals to demonstrate profit and loss.

Cons

  • The Adaptive Planning portion of the suite is very mature and has few short-comings. The biggest improvement I can think of is the ability for formulas to cross versions.
  • The Adaptive Discovery (dashboard) portion of the suite is much less mature. There are many chart types not available that are in Excel. For example, I would like to have an X-Y scatter chart to use. Also, some of the dial (chart) types have very little formatting options (like pie charts).
  • While the object of the web-based product is to eliminate paper printing, there are times when it is necessary to print financial statements. It would be nice to print directly to pdf with the ability to format the reports.

  • Shows dollar signs even when using pounds.
  • Downloads from GoDaddy to csv file have a problem with dates showing some in US format, some in text format and some in UK format. The US dates were difficult to format, I had to type in dates manually for the whole 12 months of transactions.
  • Unable to choose tax year end was geared to US tax years and taxes rather than being able to choose your own tax year and country specific formats.

Usability

Adaptive Insights7.7
Based on 75 answers
My rating of 9 is really a composite of two ratings. For the users, I would give it a 10. But for administrators, I would give it more of an 8. That is because there is definitely a learning curve for the admins. It has a fair level of complexity (which is necessary), especially in the formulas and certain types of sheets. It is a product worth mastering, but it does take time to learn.

Loses marks on the tax year only being Jan - Dec and inability to change that to a UK format and choose your year end date.

Adaptive Insights6.8
Based on 11 answers
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

I have used Hyperion and TM1 solutions in the past.
Hyperion was expensive and difficult to implement, requires more technical knowledge to set up the business rules for more more hands on IT support.
TM1 was a great tool for FP&A users. However TM1 lacked a report writer and was not a cloud based solution so access for international offices and those who traveled frequently had challenges. Adaptive offers a well-rounded solution cost effective solution with easy access, user friendly interface, built in report writer and dashboard capabilities.
