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).

The payables module is great, easy access to what we owe and what we have paid to vendors. The flipside to this is the amount of invoices we have on certain accounts that we can't always access. The financial reports come out nicely and are easy to view, the easy accessibility to our users country-wide is nice.

Pros

  • Adaptive Insights has so many good resources and easy filtering capabilities with active searching. When you go to a section of Adaptive Insights, you will see filters at the top of the page. As you change them, the contents of the page change to suit what you're looking for. This makes it easy to find the resources you need!
  • As previously mentioned, the FP&A Glossary is a great feature due to its concise definition of many common terms in FP&A.
  • I have not had much experience with the eBooks section of Adaptive Insights, but there are is a wide variety of topics to explore, such as rolling forecasts, and best practices for controllers.

  • The payables module is great, easy access to what we have paid and what we need to pay.
  • We can do all of our financial statements, it helps get our P7L's out in timely matter each month.
  • The easy integration with our image system, makes it accesilble for users to click on invoice numbers in JDE and get an image of that invoice.

Cons

  • For reforecasting (e.g. doing 3 + 9 or 6 + 6), it would be useful to do constant currency analysis for versions that are "hybrid" (i.e. contain actual and plan data). At the moment, the virtual version functionality only works properly for actual or plan only versions.
  • We are a company going through a process of changing financial years and trying to plan over multiple financial periods of different lengths. I have found it very difficult to handle this in the system elegantly.
  • It would be good if there were more "template" models for various common business scenarios (e.g. sets of standard modeled sheets available for personnel and fixed assets) or sets of standard cubes for revenue or projects.

  • One issue is the number of records I can access, wish it was more
  • We have large vendors with thousands of invoices, and I can't always get to them due to size.
  • Sometimes hard to change reports.

Usability

Adaptive Insights7.7
Based on 75 answers
I think that it is very intuitive and once you get to know the system it is very user-friendly.The reporting module is especially impressive with the drag and drop reporting - our business really loves this.The system looks modern and "smart" and I never hesitate to show it off to stakeholders across the business.Some of the "back end" formula set up can sometimes involve lots of heavy lifting as a power user.

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.

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.
