Overall Satisfaction with Adaptive Suite

Adaptive Insights is used by several departments within our organization and more are coming online this year. Each budget manager creates and manages his/her own budget. Adaptive Insights provides a single source to track and rollup expenses by line of business, category and/or project. Adaptive Insights is flexible and allows us to do multiple type reports.
  • The ability to create multiple reports with filters and customization is crucial to our business.
  • The abundance of training materials for basic and advance users is great. These materials have saved me from creating and distributing my own.
  • The easy to use Web interface is great. I and budget managers can access the site from anywhere. Plus it is so easy for the budget managers to understand/use, I don’t have to worry if the information is correct or not.
  • Change the save button to a different symbol. Some of our younger budget managers have never used a disk so they don't recognize the symbol.
The reason why we choose Adaptive Insights was due to the ease of use.
One of the main factors in our discusion to renew with Adaptive Insights is the customer support. Adaptive Insights has proven that they are committed to customer support!
  • The use of Adaptive Insights gave us the ability create and analysis planning and forecasting
  • The use of Adaptive Insights provided budget managers a faster and easier way for planning and forecasting
  • The use of Adaptive Insights gave us and our budget managers the ability to drill down on actual expenses
For any business wanting to track expenses, this tool is appropriate. Some of the selection questions we asked were:
Is it able to calculate cost by person, per accounting month, burden with tax and benefits and most of all will it calculate based on employment dates?
Is it able to handle Fx rates?
Is it able to add project specific costs?
Is it able to handle multi level organizations?
Is it able to handle specific category spend?
Is it able to handle multi year expenses?
Is it able to handle multi versions for planning and forecasting?
Is it is easy to use with and can we implement it with little training?

The answers to the questions above were yes.

Adaptive Suite Implementation



Implementation was very easy and fast. The ability to
customize Levels and Dimensions to match our Organization’s structure and
accounting practices is great. Our organization is continually changing and
adaptive has the ability to be changed without issue.
