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).

Oracle Financials Cloud

If your business has plans that include aggressive growth
and aspires to be a best-in-class organization, your IT
systems and applications need to be up to the task.
Homegrown solutions created for a smaller business or
outdated commercial software can hamper your plans for
growth. If your IT infrastructure and maintenance costs
are affecting your ability to grow, then a cloud-based ERP
suite is well worth exploring.

Pros

  • I love how easy it is to track software and general amortizations in Adaptive. The software has been an issue with my past employers, but it flows very easily here in Adaptive.
  • We also use Adaptive's OfficeConnect for easy reporting. It has helped us automate our reporting as we work with internal departments. We have the reports built, and the software and can refresh all of them simultaneously, reducing generation time and giving us more time for analysis.
  • We are building out more operational metrics now. We are starting to track sales opportunities across different business segments to see the correlation between spending activities and opportunity generation. This helps us set better targets in the future. This paired with OfficeConnect also makes it very easy to track and report on operational metrics in addition to financial metrics.

Cons

  • When trying to learn about a new feature or a feature I have not used previously it is sometimes difficult to find that information on the help section.
  • Adaptive can be deployed through consultants when they do not have specialized knowledge like higher education. This sometimes makes it difficult to determine who to contact when experiencing issues with the model after implementation.
  • You are limited to one master chart of accounts. When you have multiple businesses this can cause some difficulties that can be overcome, but takes additional thought and planning and can cause issues when making changes.

  • The functions EBS offers are not user friendly. Therefore, you might need a training in order to understand EBS features.
  • It only works on best practices of businesses. It's not possible to create your own process flow.
  • EBS provides you all the processes which have been in practicing in businesses globally.
  • The cost of system is higher. Go with EBS only if you are a Medium level or above enterprise.
  • Sometime it works slow, when you export the heavy files.

Usability

Adaptive Insights7.7
Based on 75 answers
Menus are easy to navigate, sheets are straightforward and flexible and you can work on your budget/forecasts without being at the office. The cloud based system makes it easy for users to complete their processes offsite and without needing there work provided computer. Creating new reports using both the web based Adaptive tool and OfficeConnect is quite simple with very minimal training.

Implementation was very easy and fast. The ability to

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

We previously only used Excel for budgeting and reporting. We now use Adaptive for all budgeting and use an add-on product called Office Connect to build reports that automate our data each month. We find the Office Connect reporting a little more user-friendly than the in-house reporting feature.
