Adaptive Insights

Adaptive is great if you want to create many what- if scenarios when budgeting and forecasting. Staffing scenarios has been particularly helpful for our HR department when analyze staff needs for future years and analyzing open and unfilled positions over a certain time frame.

Every so often Adaptive's response time when in the system has been slow but Adaptive has rolled out the Elastic Hypercube to take care of that issue.

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.

  • Microsoft Dynamics GP is completely integrated. There is no need for additional products to handle payables, receivables, project accounting, field service, payroll, etc.
  • The drill back capabilities within Microsoft Dynamics GP are phenomenal! There is no need to write down a journal entry number and then go find it, you let the system doing the drilling back for you to go from a journal entry all the way back to the initial transaction in the subledger.
  • The reporting options from Microsoft Dynamics GP are endless. You can utilize any of the hundreds of reports built into the application or easily utilize SmartList to perform ad hoc queries of your data. If more robust reporting is needed, then SQL Reporting Services is available.

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
  • It is not very user-friendly.
  • Very costly especially for customer support.
  • Processes are complex with too many steps for completion.

We're very happy with the service. We've reached our projects goals. The product is being continually improved.

Due the economic challenges that Puerto Rico is having, the company has had to merge some companies in order to be more efficient. It has been easy in GP to process those merges, even thought we had to spend days to accomplish that the process was smooth and accurate. In addition we were able to streamline the purchasing and sales process and the organization is confident to keep renewing GP for the future versions.

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.

I was not involved in the selection process, but have interfaced with TM1 to our parent company. My personal experience has found Adaptive to have greater responsiveness.
