    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.

    QuickBooks Online Advanced is especially well suited for repetitive and longer tasks. It offers extended features compared to the Plus edition and in all these features it has to get a recommendation. Intuit knows its customers very well. They look at what the users do, and research for the next attractive feature sets to a large extent. So the question can only be answered in very special cases. They look for revenue so such issues as file size and stability can be expected to be on end an issue. There is a need to look for efficient workarounds and the customers are creative even for QuickBooks Online Advanced. So the more a company does accounting the more automation and repetitive action acceleration are used and needed. The more bank account they will manage the more advantageous the features. All these trends are limited. Then Intuit offers special services to work with even bigger systems of QuickBooks Online Advanced. The promise to turn complex processes into ones that are of clarity is really lived at Intuit. They protect their customers very well. They keep them in the privacy they intend to have. In my experience, the features are most helpful which is targeted customization toward growth.

    Cons

    Centage

    • 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

        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.

        QuickBooks Desktop provides slightly more features and functionality, at the cost of disk space and the lack of cloud access. We chose the Online version of this software as the accounting and finance staff travel frequently and may access information remotely. QuickBooks provides significantly less features and functionality than Oracle NetSuite, but it comes at a fraction of the cost. As a smaller startup, NetSuite is not affordable for us at this time.

        Return on Investment

        Centage

        • 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.

        • I know where are bank accounts stand all in one place.
        • I know who has paid me, who has yet to pay me, and the amount of invoices outstanding and how much I can expect to earn in a month.
        • Quickbooks keeps me organized in every aspect of the business.
