Our company used the Budget Maestro platform since about 2014. Our team utilized the platform heavily for its Analytics Maestro capabilities being able to create custom dashboards for comparison points of actuals against the budget. The visuals we were able to produce were well perceived across our organization and the features made it possible to cascade the results to a high amount of offices with the simple click of a button.
  • Analytics Maestro Platform adds tremendous value.
  • Newer version offering is cloud based which adds value on size constraints.
  • Customer support has always been extremely supportive and timely on responses.
  • Took some time to roll out the cloud-based solution.
  • The older version (not cloud-based) we used took about an hour to refresh after data load.
  • The older version did take some time learning how to use the product to its fullest capabilities.
Personally, I was always very satisfied with the Budget Maestro product and platform. I used Hyperion Essbase in my prior company and felt Analytics Maestro had very similar capabilities and features which made learning the product very easy. The ongoing support has been tremendous and this is an area I find many competitors in the marketplace to have room for improvement.
