Likelihood to Recommend

Float

I would definitely recommend everyone to use Float, It's easy and friendly to use. Performance-wise as well it is great. Really helps in streamline and scheduling resources and their utilization. Its reporting feature is great, Shows all projects for a particular resource or all resources for a particular project. It's a go-to tool for management.

Planful (formerly Host Analytics)

[Planful] does well with entity consolidation and reporting. It is highly reliable and structured for multiple entities, currencies, and standard financial reporting. Additionally, it supports accounting functions with robust reporting and drill-through functionality. It does not require dedicated internal or external support. It is easily managed by in-house FP&A. However, it is not an ERP and may not work well in a manufacturing environment. [Planful] may not scale well to companies over $5B. It is not intended as a data warehouse.

Pros

Float

  • Cash flow management.
  • Forecasting out how much you can spend.
  • Quickbooks integration.

  • Reporting. Once data is correctly imported into the system, a user can slice and dice to create reports outlining anything they can dream. It really is super powerful, even with just the UI, though becomes more powerful when you utilise MDX formulas etc.
  • Consolidations. Often consolidation functionality in ERP systems is quite limited and depends on things such as the subsidiary structure, with Planful this restriction is not here and you are able to consolidate in many more ways, depending on needs.

Cons

Float

  • More mobile friendly
  • Scrolling through x and y dimension is bit confusing
  • I have been using Float for a long time and no more cons I can think of.
Madhu Mundra | TrustRadius Reviewer

Planful (formerly Host Analytics)

  • Dashboarding module did not offer great visualization.
  • Drilling through on actuals reports would be better if you could select multiple months at a time.
  • I wish you could customize the columns in HR planning and the changes would save from month to month.

We are in our 5th year using HA and have renewed our contract already. We went through a major ERP conversion last fiscal year and at that time reevaluated whether or now we would stay with Host or move to another system. Host is meeting our needs for forecast/budget/report/etc and does so at a reasonable price so we saw no need to move to another system.

Float is great for Project management and resource management. It is helping us work more effectively. It's a great planning tool. Smooth to understand and start working on. It has great integration with Slack, Google calendar. It has made Assigning and scheduling very easy for future projects with time management. Reporting is very easy and data extraction is too. It is also good in monitoring weekly/monthly and quarterly allocation of resources

For the most part, the system is extremely usable. The consolidation and reporting modules are straight-forward and easy to use as long as everything is set-up properly during implementation. The one module that can be somewhat difficult to use is the Workforce Planning module of Structured Planning. Additionally, the reports that come from Workforce Planning aren't as robust as we need them to be

Float helps in planning upcoming projects and helps in availability management for the resource to be able to assign. The creation of resources with roles helps in assigning and formulation a proper team for a project. It shows us the capacity and work hours of resources and helps us in leave management as well as scheduling time off. Teams utilization is been made very convenient by this tool.

Everyone is very responsive and is willing to jump on a call to help. We set up weekly calls with our CFL representative during the first month of Go-Live. This really helped us solve problems before they got out of hand. When using the Community, I also see representatives on there answering questions

After going through the initial implementation with Host Analytics and a re-implementation with Cervello (due to an ERP change, not due to a poor initial implementation), I've learned that you really must rely on your internal staff to bear most of the implementation burden. Use the vendor or partners for ideas and best-practice suggestions, and some of the easy-but-time-consuming work. Since you will ultimately be using and maintaining the application, you should be able to do most of it yourself.

I used Hyperion and Essbase in a former position, and when I was introduced to Planful (as Host Analytics), I was intrigued by the similarities to Essbase, but in the cloud. I could see the potential immediately, and it has improved continuously since implementation. I have never been more impressed by the genuine customer service provided by all of Planful's departments. I am also impressed with the online training resources and customer support, as well as the support of the Planful user community.

Return on Investment

Float

  • We've had a positive ROI since we're able to take bigger risks now that we understand how much cash will be in our account on what day.
  • We are able to make adjustments to our contractors and services to grow our business faster.

  • Before we started using Planful/Host Analytics back in 2017, we forecasted our labor via a very large spreadsheet - very tedious for 400+ employees
  • Using Planful/Host Analytics definitely saves time every month and the errors are no longer made (like they were in Excel). If the info is good going in, the reports are good coming out!
  • Being able to quickly reload data (for different scenarios during budget season) gives our leadership team the tools they need to make good financial decisions.
