I'm sure that Budgyt would not be the most appropriate solution for large, complex organizations with numerous entities or overly complicated structures. Those org's likely have solutions within their ERPs or other sophisticated finance systems with budgeting/reporting capabilities that mirror Budgyt, making it redundant. However, for an easy, and relatively cheap solution to meeting those needs, as well as forecasting and analysis, I would recommend Budgyt to anyone with the need.

Pros
Budgyt
  • Combining departments (components of an entity or a component of various entity's income statement) or isolating departments (small slivers) of an entity's income statement. We can look at specific departments of specific entities together, with ease.
  • Splicing / flipping reports into countless formats. Helpful for users of the financial statements that digest data/numbers differently than the financial accountants who prepare the numbers.
  • It is relatively easy to import data from our Jonas accounting program into Budgyt.
  • We've had prompt customer service when we've encountered issues and they were readily available during implementation.

Cons
Budgyt
  • Inside setting up HR forumlas, it should give more than one filter criteria.
  • Application got slow after putting the information of HR module and formuals, need to speed up.
  • Selection of multiple companies with different GLs can be an option where it is lacking.
  • Didn't see the multicurrency feature, can be a good add on.

  • UX: It's beyond time for an overhaul, especially on mobile. It can make the app seem dated.
  • The accounting software integration has been prone to break and need to be re-setup, though that seems to have improved.

Our organization has increased our level of financial reporting and decreased the time it takes to build a budget with the Budgyt platform. Because our budget managers have access, it allows them a higher level of ownership for their areas.

Forecaster was terrible. We switched from that. We looked at multiple products, either too expensive or not user-friendly. We switched 4 years ago. I do not recall the companies we visited back then. There are certainly more on the market now, but I have no interest in switching as our entire office loves the product.

We did not really find a similar solution. All other solutions are focused on project management, [there's] nothing on generating a business plan. There is nothing on this level that helps people without any business experience write the plan. They have samples, instructions what to write where, how to prepare for pitching, and generate dashboards. Nothing in this market gets anywhere close to this solution.

Scalability
Budgyt
Budget scenarios are amazing, when it comes to educational funding, were always having to pivot. Having multiple scenarios for financial planning is key to being economically sustainable. We can quickly add services or staffing based upon funding adjustments/projections and see if they will work in our current climate. This supports leaderships ability to make quicker decisions.
