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).

Better collaboration with LIVE data using Digital Boardroom.4. For end users its truly self-service tool unlike other tools in the market.

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.

  • It is an excellent community for developers.

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
  • Would like to get more training on the tool. I know it can do more than what I am using, but I haven't figured it all out yet.
  • Ability to export data. Not sure if this is a functionality offered or if I just don't have access to this.
  • We haven't started using it for collaboration between departments yet, but I think this would be beneficial for us to start.

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

Adaptive Insights8.2
Based on 13 answers
In our experience the Adaptive Suite is quick and easy to deploy. Most implementations are facilitated in just a few weeks but may range depending on organisation complexity from say 2 to 12 weeks with only the very largest and most complex taking a little longer. When key stakeholders are properly engaged and the opportunities for skills transfer are exercised, we find that implementations proceed well and are delivered on time and to project budget

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 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.
Mikel Christopherson profile photo
I use Tableau almost daily in my full-time corporate IA job and we chose Zoho Reports for this client. For small business, ZoHo definitely is the clear winner. There may not be as much support from ZoHo or the backing that SAP has but it seems to be sufficient while meeting the budget

Return on Investment

  • Budget process has been shortened, while at the same time allowing greater detail. Visibility of prior activities across multiple years has provided greater understanding of the budget/forecast at the lower levels of the company.
  • Month End reporting cycles have been simplified and shortened. Reliability is increased as errors in data transfer between spreadsheets and/or files have been eliminated.
  • Weekly reporting to operating groups is now provided with significantly less resources in the accounting group. Accounting team members are able to concentrate more on accuracy in the accounting entries and less on data entry into reports.
Mikel Christopherson profile photo
  • The tool requires training and is not very easy to use. Once understood, the tool is a breeze. Some tutorials would go a long way.
  • There is a lag sometimes in the tool, which obviously creates problems in the meeting. Dedicated support staff would help.
  • The UI of the tool itself can be improved and used with modern architectural designs of a software.
