Likelihood to Recommend

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.

I would recommend, provided accounts payable will be running on their own system. SunSystems doesn't seem to work well for AP and/or purchasing.

Pros

  • Web-based system which eliminates the need to purchase new software. System is accessible anywhere as long as there is internet access.
  • Its features provide for good planning, budgeting, and forecasting.
  • The ability to create customized reports is a very nice touch - we are able to share this across our organization.

  • Integration options are very good. We are able to import data in a number of ways and extract data as well. The use of their built in API for data validation, extraction and entry is working very well for us.

Cons

  • The layout of the various reporting options could be displayed in a more user-friendlier way. It's a bit difficult to locate where to find the reports.
  • I'm finding that the drill down feature from the monthly financials section is not as convenient as it should be.
  • The exporting to Excel or PDF format is a bit off - it's time consuming to manipulate the excel to a regular paper size.

  • Stability seems to be an issue. Installing patches almost always seem to fix some things and break others.

Usability

Fairly easy to get trained on the system and how to build models. Within 3 days of hands-on training, we build out robust capacity models on our own. Reports and dashboards are drag and drop to create.

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

Other than Excel, we did not look at other systems. Key for us was also a bridge or link to our current ERP system, Intacct. I also researched retention of customers with Adaptive. I could not find any vendors who left Adaptive. Strong retention.

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.
