Overall Satisfaction with Adaptive Suite

Adaptive Insights has been the backbone of our organizations transition into quarterly rolling forecasts. It is also the source for BOD and executive presentations. It is a great intuitive software package that allows for scalable business process. I started with less than 5 active users and two years later we now have 70+ users imputing budgets and taking responsibilities for their forecasts. No longer do I hear "those are finance's numbers" because I don't put any data into the system. It is amazing and I highly recommend it. I have used SAP and Hyperion and they can't touch the flexibility of Adaptive.

Pros

  • Integration into our other software
  • Flexibility in budgeting (similar to Excel)
  • Ability to give specific permissions.

Cons

  • Out of the box formatting reports
  • Linking sheets within the application to automate manual processes
I have used on premise software and it is big, clunky and needs a ton of IT resources to make even the smallest of changes. Adaptive is the exact opposite of that. It is easy to use and I was able to manage the entire software package with a team of one...me.
Cost, Cost, Cost. It has an incredible ROI!
  • Quicker forecast cycles
  • Faster consolidations
  • cost effective software
I think integration with other systems is very important when choosing CPM software. If the software doesn't play well with others, it shouldn't be selected. The use of SaaS based services is only increasing and when they connect you are able to harness the power of the best of breed software.

Adaptive Suite Reliability

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.
