How Prophix Differs From Its Competitors

Annual Budget Planning

Prophix has made it easier to combine various budget components in a much simpler fashion than in the past. In that sense it has allowed somewhat of a transition away from Excel based budgeting and planning. However a lot of the individual budget components are still developed within Excel before …

I think Prophix overall has been very intuitive and easy to grasp the basics of. We have a lot of users at my organization and it has been easy to get new users familiar with the system. It has improved the budget process and the collaboration across different teams. While I think there are some more complex features of Prophix, for an everyday user I am happy with the usability.

Prophix is necessarily complex because it is a very flexible tool that can be used to solve just about any data analysis or reporting need. There is always a disconnect between the initial presentation of a software product and actual implementation and use. Be sure to allocate the necessary investment in time and money for consulting help and user training.

Great for budgeting when multiple inputs are required across the organization. It is very helpful to have possible Excel templates for people who refuse change and are not into learning a new software.
Data is housed efficiently and it's easy to do ad hoc analysis.

I think after an initial learning curve, it's very usable and allows for greater report creation, ad hoc reporting, and report manipulation to give you exactly what you need. Weve migrated over more and more departments in F&A over to prophix as we've expanded our functionality with them.

Customer service is great. I am happy with the reporting and budgeting capabilities. Accessories and options for charts, graphs and reports are basic and could be better.

Prophix is a very flexible system. They continually work on new features and improvements to the system. You do not have to wait for an annual upgrade if you using the cloud-based model. Enhancements and changes are updated seasonally. You are provided with excellent training tools and are offered to purchase a customer success plan that includes training and customer support. The system is well worth the investment we have made.

The data can be sliced and diced many ways, and each user is able to do it however they like. It is easy to create or run existing reports. We have made many of our processes more efficient, and Prophix has allowed us to save more time than you can imagine. We are able to use Prophix for Expense tracking, Expense and Capital planning, reforecasting, Compensation planning, Project tracking, Expense allocation, GAAP PLOB reporting, and still have several more tasks to implement through Prophix.

I think Prophix was very easy to learn how to use. There were obviously some areas that were a little tricky to learn how to do but nothing terrible. We had a third party consultant but did a lot of the report building on our own. Training other users on the system was fairly easy.
