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.

Sage 100

Sage is probably best suited for small to midsize companies. It is very user-friendly, is easily and quickly learned, and is very robust. The variety of modules and features has allowed us to expand as our business has grown. Sage 100 handles our drop ship and retail business equally as well as our manufacturing

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!

Cons

  • Model - It takes a little bit of time to get familiar with how the model works.
Denise Lewis profile photo
  • Easier upgrades to newer levels would be a plus.
  • Purchasing and implementing with a Certified Reseller is key to a successful rollout.
  • Rapid response updates in each module (for business process improvement) would be a plus.

Likelihood to Renew

We have renewed this a number of times. It fits our business model and it is now an integral part of our organization.

Based on 5 answers
Sage is constantly developing new and enhanced features and if renewal is expired you don't get them. Also support becomes lacking when when you fall many versions behind. Plus there may be a late pay penalty. Unless you're migrating soon to a new software you should always keep your maintenance current or it costs you more in the long run.

Usability

Adaptive Insights7.7

Building complex reports is still difficult to do when using dimension or level attributes. Formulas are still a challenge.

It is easy, flexible, user friendly and feature laden. Out of the box or easily customized to meet our "wish" list . Sage offers a variety of modules and bolt-ons, user defined fields etc., allowing us to conduct business "our way" without forcing us into a one-size- fits- none mold or having to purchase expensive and cumbersome programming modifications

Implementation

We had an advantage in implementing the tool in that our director of Ops had been part of the team implementing the ERP for other users so we knew what to expect and were able to avoid a lot of the challenges people sometimes face with implementations. However, the process still took far longer than desired.

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

I have used Hyperion and TM1 solutions in the past.
Hyperion was expensive and difficult to implement, requires more technical knowledge to set up the business rules for more more hands on IT support.
TM1 was a great tool for FP&A users. However TM1 lacked a report writer and was not a cloud based solution so access for international offices and those who traveled frequently had challenges. Adaptive offers a well-rounded solution cost effective solution with easy access, user friendly interface, built in report writer and dashboard capabilities.

The last 20 years I worked as a Sage consultant implementing Sage 100 for customers. Other systems I dealt with were: Quickbooks, MS Great Plains, Expandable, Accpac (now sage). Downgrades from Oracle and SAP
