Budgyt
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.

PowerPlan
[PowerPlan is well suited for] Any Utility who handles their own Fixed Asset Accounting and Reporting. There are very few specialized solutions in this space that can handle this out of the box. Core functionality and support with PowerPlan are excellent. If you have a firm or service that handles a portion or the majority of your Fixed Asset Accounting and Reporting than this solution is overkill and costly for what you need. There may be other options also if you have a robust internal technology team that is comfortable developing another major fixed asset solution into what you need. Cloud Hosting is also not available at this time and will likely be several releases out and be a major redesign (unstable) at first.

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.

  • The backend technology is dated and requires specialized skills or PowerPlan assistance to develop on.
  • UI is also outdated and not as visually appealing as users are now accustomed to.
  • Reporting is basic in functionality and appearance.

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.

PowerPlan
Oracle Financials (E-Business Suite) is a very Robust ERP solution that has better integration, reporting and functionality than PowerPlan. It also operates on a more Robust Technology Stack. The Fixed Assets Module is a great solution but lacks support for Utility Specific features and functionality, so much so that we chose PowerPlan to take over this specific functionality while still utilizing Oracle for the Majority of our Project and other Accounting Functions.

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.
