Adaptive Insights

We are a medium-sized holding company, and Adaptive Insights has worked tremendously well for us! We do not currently use it to consolidate our business units, but we plan on exploring that soon. If you find yourself spending numerous hours creating financial statements and budgeting in Excel, then Adaptive Insights may be for you! It saves us an exponential amount of time in variance analysis, refreshing financial statements, and budgeting.

Reporting is leaps and bounds above Quickbooks. Additionally, having the segregation of duties and being able to define what each user is able to access is incredibly helpful.

Pros

  • Financial Reporting - Building financial statements in OfficeConnect is a breeze! They are quick and easy to update on a monthly basis! The HTML reporting within Adaptive Insights is also particularly useful for department and adhoc reports!
  • Budgeting/Forecasting - Being able to budget/forecast within Adaptive Insights has significantly cut down on the time it takes to budget by utilizing formulas and assumptions within the model! We reforecast quarterly, and with Adaptive Insights, it's painless when compared to the Excel forecasting we did previously.
  • Cash Flow Statement - Creating this for the annual audit was painful before Adaptive Insights! Now, it's a simple export from Adaptive Insights.
  • Dashboards - The dashboards that can be created are endless and provide valuable insight for our executives in real-time!

  • Reporting - We are able to build custom reports that drive decisions from above.
  • Project driven expenses - We are able to see the spend on a project basis and break it down by department to further determine the extent of each department's impact on each project.
  • Separation of entities - We have three entities that roll up into one for reporting. We are able to review expenses for each specific entity and track them separately.

Cons

  • Model - It takes a little bit of time to get familiar with how the model works.

  • Cell phone app does not exist.
  • Additional modules (i.e. budgeting, interactive reporting) cost extra.

We will continue to use Intacct internally and refer it to our clients that will mesh with their industries because it is a proven solution that works. It keeps employees efficient and uses their time to construct accurate financials with the correct level of controls.

Support

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.

currently you must submit a ticket via the customer portal and then wait for a response. The time you must wait for the response varies based on the urgency of your request. Sometimes you just need a quick response and a phone call would be easier or even a live chat ~ would love to see them roll that out instead of having to wait when you have a question or issue.

Online Training

Training receives the highest rating due to the availability of Webex training from an expert at Adaptive, with several sessions tailored to specific features including personnel, capital, formulas, reporting, etc

The training is designed for implementing intacct as opposed to utilizing intacct. I think that both are necessary to learn, but wish there was continued training for using it once Intacct is in place for the users.

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.

I selected Sage Intacct when it was just Intacct (before merger with Sage). I compared it against Financial Edge from Blackbaud. Financial Edge appeared to be more complicated based on user interface and it was also more costly.

Return on Investment

  • We've completely eliminated Excel in the budget cycle. I no longer have to consolidate 90 spreadsheets to get the organizational budget. Last minute changes are saved in Adaptive. With the audit feature, I can know who made what change and whether or not it was approved at the top level.
  • KPI dashboards have lowered expenses as users have real-time information on their expense ratio for major events. We've been able to lower costs, increase gross revenue and net revenue all at the same time.
Daniel Killpack profile photo
  • It has allowed visibility we didn't have with our previous accounting package and has also streamlined our processes enough that we've been able to defer hiring.
