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.

The program is appropriate for use in all business types - especially if the business has many different branches located in different parts of the country/world. The fact that invoicing can be done from a mobile device by use of the friendly Sage One app also makes it easy to quickly conclude a sales transaction by issuing an invoice at the client office - shortens time, leaving more time for business.

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.

  • The reporting functions in Sage One are particularly nifty and great for use in the presentation of financial information. The layouts are very well organised and the functionality and different options for using the reports are well thought out.
  • The Report designer makes it quick and easy to make amendments to the document design and to add/remove to the design specified to the client's needs.
  • The Quick View module and Dashboard module contribute to the user friendliness of the program which makes working with it even more of a pleasure. The required records/transactions have a very neat layout and the buttons are labelled very clearly.
  • The overall functionality and user friendliness of the program makes it very easy to use and contributes to quick training. This increases productivity and decreases time and costs spent to implement the product.

Cons

  • Model - It takes a little bit of time to get familiar with how the model works.
Denise Lewis profile photo
  • There are some reports which could be improved to further progress the presentation of financial information and assist management with important decisions.
  • There are some technical errors sometimes encountered - but these are usually internal(internet or lack of technological know how).

I love the convenience of Sage One as I can access it anywhere I have internet. I also love how user friendly it is, my customers who do not have any kind of accounting or bookkeeping background are able to quickly learn systems and procedures that I help set up for them to stay on top of their finances to work towards having a successful business. It has so many features to help make things easy for you to keep track of your finances allowing you more time to work on your business.

They are always there no matter how big or small my issue may be to support me and my customers to come up with a solution. The staff is always there by chat or phone and even remote support to solve any issues. I have noticed that Sage is always training there staff keeping the up to date on all the new releases so they are better able to support us.

Alternatives Considered

My decision came down to Adaptive vs Host Analytics. Host made the claim that because their sheets were just like excel, you wouldn't need to learn any new commands. Rather, I thought that was a downside. I didn't want another glorified version of excel, I was looking for something different, something new. Adaptive had that. They were also far more willing to work with a nonprofit and become a partner, rather than just a vendor.
Daniel Killpack profile photo
I just find compared to others that Sage One Accounting is definitely easier to navigate through and easier to understand and use when accounting or bookkeeping isn't your area of expertise. I have trained several people on the program now that have absolutely no accounting back ground and they are loving the program and their businesses are flourishing.

Return on Investment

  • Month-end reporting: It's hard to say how much time Adaptive Insights has provided, but I can say we no longer have formula errors in Excel reports and refreshing financial statements every month only takes a couple of clicks.
  • Budgeting/forecasting: We have saved a tremendous amount of time in our budgeting cycle. After importing a budget in Adaptive Insights and setting up the model with formulas, we are able to copy the most recent budget version into the next budget version and review. Being able to budget in Adaptive Insights also removes the possibility of formula and linking errors that come with Excel.
