Fourth Analytics is just a great system for HR management of staff, the reports that you can pull from it are really helpful, for example employee anniversaries. It is particularly useful at working alongside other platforms such as our hiring system, Harri, and our T&A machine where staff clock in and out. I can’t really say where it is less appropriate as it offers me everything I need as the restaurant administrator.

Workday Adaptive Planning

Workday Adaptive Planning is extremely well suited to the typical finance budget, forecast, actual reporting cycle and makes it easy to do every monthly forecast at the same level of detail as an annual plan. It takes a lot of pain out of the reconciliation of headcount variances and that type of thing.

Pros

Fourth Analytics

  • Break down of hours in department costs.
  • Allowing access to contracts & other HR bits.
  • Access to payslips to go through issues with the staff.
Jonathan Grasty | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workday Adaptive Planning

  • Version Management. Adaptive lets us manage many versions/scenarios all in one platform with the robust ability to compare them to each other.
  • Processing Performance. With the Elastic Hypercube technology that was implemented a few years back, we can watch changes flow through a complex web of formulas and arrive at an answer within seconds.
  • Audit Trail. Our administrators love the ability to see and report on who made what changes when, which leads to real accountability within the organization.

Cons

Fourth Analytics

  • More Updates
  • Bug Fixes
  • More Functions
Andrei Ion | TrustRadius Reviewer

Workday Adaptive Planning

  • It would be beneficial to me, as a user, if there was a library of documentation for every type of feature. This could be something regarding formula building, understanding how attributes work, with examples, or a location for basic and advance documentation on Sheet/Model/Cubes.
  • I would like to have the ability to directly assign some dimensions to accounts easier. A drag and drop feature for that would be interesting. This has been a challenge for me when new dimensions are built and I am unable to assign them to new accounts.
  • I would also like to see some more formulas or an easier way to do some basic tasks. For example a simple YTD function instead of running a simple, yet long string of texts for the formulas. Or the option for selecting YTD features, removing the need of the formula all together.

We have users in all parts of the business that have access. [Even those who] are not financial individuals love the ease of use while being able to drill down and clearly understand what is happening in their department. All levels of the organization find Workday Adaptive Planning useful for both executive level reporting, financial reviews as well as detailed planning by multiple users.

There haven't been any lately. The only one issue I can think of is when there was an update in Adaptive that altered our reports. Before I realized there was an issue, Adaptive reached out to let me know, so that it could be fixed.

All aspects of Adaptive Insights perform well. One area that I wish was quicker was integration. When importing data from Intacct our accounting ERP platform, it can sometimes take 4 hours for the import to process. The earlier imports are done, the quicker they complete. My estimate for a quick upload is about two hours.

The online support for Workday Adaptive Planning is very helpful. I go there at least once a week to find answers to questions and they’re usually very easy to find. If i’m unsuccessful in finding the answer, I email Workday Adaptive Planning support and they’re quick to answer, willing to help, and provide great clarity on the answer if you need it.

Our 3rd party vendor walked us through the whole process and was available for questions after we started using the Adaptive Insights. I would suggest using the online training environment plus an individual walk through of your company's model to get more acquainted with the instance. There were also on-line tutorials to help us along the way.

The training program in Adaptive Insight has grown quite a bit, since I originally implemented in Adaptive Insights. I would now give it a 10 rating and suggest that anyone implementing for the first time work through the certification program. The certification program is a very detailed in depth primer to understanding how the system works.

In our experience the Adaptive Suite is quick and easy to deploy. Most implementations are facilitated in just a few weeks but may range depending on organisation complexity from say 2 to 12 weeks with only the very largest and most complex taking a little longer. When key stakeholders are properly engaged and the opportunities for skills transfer are exercised, we find that implementations proceed well and are delivered on time and to project budget

Workday Adaptive Planning

After researching several CPM products, Adaptive and Prophix actually both met our needs quite well. The Adaptive Sales & Design Team went above and beyond in the early stages of exploring whether Adaptive could meet some of our very specific needs. Adaptive's customer service during the exploration phase was noticeably present. We chose Adaptive and a vendor in our local area to implement. Budget Maestro seemed to require more IT resources than what we desired to invest. Vena Solutions was a bit pricey from our perspective and Xlerant didn't quite have what we were looking for in a budgeting tool.

We went from 2 users to 70+ users over a 2 year period of time. The application scaled wonderfully. 65 of those users were non-finance users so they were able to quickly learn the software and prepare budgets quickly and efficiently. That is the power of Adaptive and its ability to scale

  • We are seeing more and more how Adaptive can go beyond financial metrics and cross into operational metrics. As we work with other departments in the business, we are working hard to make Adaptive the system of record when it comes to KPI reporting and measuring.
