Centage
Centage is suited for all types of business. This is what makes this tool so great. It requires some expertise in setting it up and depending on how complex the business is, it may take longer than expected. It's a complex system and if you are not involved in the implementtion it might be hard to learn what is does.

Visual Lease is well suited for companies that are trying to manage their leases in a more automated way other then spreadsheet. A company that needs visibility around their leases and wants to stay in compliance with the ever changing world of accounting. A company that wants a software that can integrate with their ERP and make routine monthly accounting entries.

Pros
Centage
  • Planning personnel with all the related benefit expenses is very accurate and we are able to forecast increases as well.
  • Storing separate versions of the budget allows us to finalize for the year and have access to the data while we update the default plan with any changes.
  • I ilke the way you can add intelligence see the detail of calculations below th eline item.
  • I like writing Planning Maestro reports to see drill downs of any item and tie them to our ERP Budget

Cons
Centage
  • Head count is a bit strange as each period is considered one Headcount for a total of 12 per year, so we have to adjust when running reports
  • would love to be able to attach related expenses in payroll to a kind of employee instead of doing each individually. It's time consuming.
  • Have the help more available instead of having to log into separate place

  • So far, this has worked out extremely well for our governmental environment.

The team makes sure that you get what you need out of the software. They will do whatever is in their power to make sure you're happy and are getting back your investment (time and money).

Visual Lease support was not too impressive to me because when I reached out to ask about the XXX codes in the journal entries, they did not seem concerned. They just said they were default accounts, but I did not know what I was supposed to do with them since we did not have these accounts. Also, when I asked about API integration, I could not get a good response on how to get Visual Lease to be connected with Intacct.

Alternatives Considered

I used to use an older consolidating product call FRX or something like that, very manual where accounts were adding line the reporting lines one by one.... Centage is far superior, the ability to create custom Dimension hierarchies as improved our reporting 100 fold

We also evaluated Lease Accelerator and Lease Query. We didn't go with Lease Accelerator because it didn't have lessor leases. We did not go with Lease Query because they did not have abstract reports.

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.

  • This has been extremely important in compiling all of the many leases that we have going on throughout different years and timelines.
