Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

We are a medium-sized holding company, and Adaptive Insights has worked tremendously well for us! We do not currently use it to consolidate our business units, but we plan on exploring that soon. If you find yourself spending numerous hours creating financial statements and budgeting in Excel, then Adaptive Insights may be for you! It saves us an exponential amount of time in variance analysis, refreshing financial statements, and budgeting.

Pros

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • 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.

Cons

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

  • On the Infographics page, I would love to see a thumbnail of the infographic before clicking on it. In general, I love that when you hover over a box, you get a more detailed description, but I would also love the ability to hover and then click to see a thumbnail before opening the full page.
  • Similarly, I think the Videos page should have the length of each video somewhere on the squares. This would help people judge how much time they would need to watch each one all the way through, and be able to make an informed decision about how many they could watch in between meetings.
  • There is no free text search bar.

  • In our case, the support department is a little slow to meet important requests.
  • When the user does not remember the password, our recovery option is only the technical support department. Some recovery option by E-mail would be excellent.
  • Transactions to generate monthly reports over time have become slower. We need debugging of this. Customers are growing and transactions equal, there should be some way to optimize the process and for these reports to not take so long to generate.
  • The data export formats are of old software. They should consider updating the current formats to the new ones.

The cost of SAP as an ERP is quite high and the switching costs associated with ERP systems are even higher. That being said moving from one ERP to another only happens once in a great while for large organizations. Those switching costs include retraining, IT hardware requirements, outside consultants and more

Usability

The Adaptive Suite is well-rounded. We love the add-on OfficeConnect because it allows us to quickly pull data from Adaptive in a report format. Once you set up the OfficeConnect, it's as easy as pushing a button to re-run. This has been especially helpful for month-end reporting and reconciling data in the Budget.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Adaptive Insights, a Workday company

For us, it came down to Adaptive Insights and Host Analytics. The benefits seemed very comparable. We ultimately decided on Adaptive Insights because it cost less to implement and the time to implement was less compared to Host Analytics. We are VERY happy with our decision to go with Adaptive Insights.
