Planning Maestro

Personally, I was always very satisfied with the Budget Maestro product and platform. I used Hyperion Essbase in my prior company and felt Analytics Maestro had very similar capabilities and features which made learning the product very easy. The ongoing support has been tremendous and this is an area I find many competitors in the marketplace to have room for improvement.

If you have a large organization and there are few segments where ERP coverage is expensive and not efficient (for instance in newly acquired entities not yet fully integrated) then Infor CloudSuite Financials can be immensely helpful. As it not only offers an efficient and effective tool, but it can also help in unraveling the integration and coverage challenges which would crop up while executing complete PMI.

Cons

Planning Maestro

  • Took some time to roll out the cloud-based solution.
  • The older version (not cloud-based) we used took about an hour to refresh after data load.
  • The older version did take some time learning how to use the product to its fullest capabilities.

Alternatives Considered

Planning Maestro

Our company evaluated 6 product offerings in the market place a year ago and felt Budget Maestro and Vena offered the largest return on our investment at their price points. We have always been very satisfied with the product and its customer service. Since we have grown over 600% over 4 years, many of the new layers of management used other products in prior careers and we are currently at a point where the entire organization may be transitioning to an ERP solution to manage all finance and accounting functions. I would always recommend Budget Maestro as a great budgeting and analytical tool for FP&A teams as we were able to accomplish a high amount of monthly reports with a small team over the years.

Return on Investment

Planning Maestro

  • We were a very small company growing by acquisition so it worked well during these phases of our company growth.
  • The return for our cost was tremendous especially in comparison to peers in the market.
  • Analytics Maestro allowed us to grow without adding headcount by building efficient reports that can easily be mass-produced for all branches within our organization.
