Axiom EPM

Axiom is ideal for organizations with multiple departments that need to collect, share, and integrate data from common internal data sources. The product is best for very large organizations with a lot of financial backing. I wouldn't suggest using Axiom if you're a small organization or only one department, for example.

I've had experience with Quickbooks Desktop, QuickBooks Online, Great Plains Dynamics, Oracle, and Sage is certainly my favorite by far. It has the intuitive and easy to navigate features as QuickBooks Online, but in depth capabilities like GP Dynamics or even Oracle.

Pros

Axiom EPM

  • Compared to a previous EPM we used, Axiom's template load and saving performance has been much better even for large plan files.
  • Axiom consultants can create completely customized reports for any of the collected data. Super users within your organization can then fairly easily modify their work to create additional reports without Axiom's help (and invoices)
  • Setting up user security is a fairly easy one-time task and very easy to maintain when people change departments, leave the organization, etc. I would recommend you use role-based security settings.
  • Compared to our previous EPM, Axiom allows more customization and possibilities for templates. There's very few "the product can't do that" statements.

  • Audit trail: Need to know who changed an entry or deleted a transaction? Hiding fraudulent activities is now very difficult to do!
  • Reports: Create the exact report you need and save it for future use.
  • User permissions and roles: Ensure segregation of duties by assigning features and abilities to specific users and/or roles.

Cons

Axiom EPM

  • Unfortunately, Axiom only assigned two implementation consultants to our massive project and both were completely new to the product and inexperienced.
  • This isn't really a fault of Axiom, but your organization's data has to be perfect before implementing Axiom. You need a strong project manager within your organization to take the lead in working with Axiom. They should be very familiar with the source data and what's important to all your internal stakeholders. The Axiom team needs to be clearly told exactly what you need from them.
  • We never truly felt confident anyone from Axiom was really familiar with the source tables and data being used. I would suggest in any project they make that a priority early on. Not being familiar with the data caused a list of issues regarding reporting and template construction.

  • Bank reconciliation - I do not like the forced "matching" layout. I prefer the old layout where I can manually check off items and see real-time adjustments without needing to hit "match".
  • Bill changes - I want to be able to edit more fields for bills in an open period-paid or unpaid-without being forced to do a full reversal or making an additional reclassifying entry to correct a data entry mistake.
  • Vendor ACH information - I want to be able to send an [encrypted] email to a vendor to allow them to input their own bank information into the system that I do not have to see or handle in order to pay via ACH.

Sage Intacct continues to well-satisfy our needs and is an easy-to-use product. Service reliability has been excellent. The ability to integrate Sage Intacct with best-in-class companion products that handle expense reporting, budgeting, etc... makes Sage Intacct an excellent value. We continue to be extremely well-satisfied with the results and performance of our experience using Sage Intacct.

It is very easy to understand and one can adjust to the different features very quickly. The combination of wide versatility while still maintaining an easy to use interface is very helpful on our end. We spend very little time training new employees on the ins and outs of Sage Intacct because it is so easy to get [the] hang of.

There are times when the system is down when multiple people need to log in to track time to be able invoice clients. This at times can be painful, but we work around it when it happens.

For the scale of our implementation, Axiom only assigned two consultants who were both completely new to the company. It felt like we were all learning about the product together, when you would expect them to already be experts at their own product. The team also made a good bit of mistakes throughout production and go-live, which then caused more work internally for us. The team lead for our project also just left the company, so we'll see how next year's planning goes

I have had no issues with support. This has not been an issue at all. I have not had to reach out for any technical support and found the site pretty easy to figure out how. The site always is functioning and runs well. It has been nice to not have to worry about needing to reach out to technical support.

It was great for generic training but we had the system modified by our third party implementer and a lot of that was not covered in various training's that we received or took online. Attended Advantage last year and that as super helpful in learning a lot of the intricacies of the system.

I would not use a thrid party administrator to implement your system, especially if you are going to be modifying the system at all. Use Intacct implementors as they will be able to better support you on any issues that come up after you go live.

Alternatives Considered

Axiom EPM

Vena was a strong product, but only our department within the University used it for budgeting. The entire university chose Axiom for the increased scale and capacity. The loading and saving performance of Axiom is slightly better than Vena. Also, Axiom provides more template and report customization. Vena definitely excelled more in their support and staffing and was much cheaper (so I'm told) than Axiom

I like Intacct much better. Although NetSuite has a better reporting module, Intacct is superior is most other categories. For example, the bank rec in NetSuite might be from the stone ages. The bank rec module in Intacct is so user friendly and makes our month-end close become much, much smoother.

Return on Investment

Axiom EPM

  • This is only the first year of implementation for the university, so the ROI is yet to be fully seen. For our department, which is the largest in the university, I think the ROI has been fairly high as our users have had more built-in resources within their plan files than they had previously.

  • TIME! Sage Intacct has been a huge time saver over our legacy systems.
  • The ease of being able to quickly run a financial statement has been great.
  • Drill down features when looking at a line item on the financials has had a positive impact.
