Overall Satisfaction with Adaptive Suite

We were one of the early adopters of Adaptive and have used this for budgeting, forecasting, "what-if" scenarios, business changes, etc. It has been a staple of the business and improved our budgeting and forecasting. It has allowed us to review our business model and test out the possible impacts of changes to our organization or business model. As an organization we are very positive regarding Adaptive and have demonstrated it to a number of companies that added this to their organizations.
  • Budgeting because of it's flexibility
  • Forecasting in different areas of the business because it allows input from our operating personnel
  • "What if" scenarios that allow us to look at the impact of making changes within the organization
  • It imports the data to Excel but it would be nice if it was a bit more flexible in converting it's formulas to Excel formulas
We have renewed this a number of times. It fits our business model and it is now an integral part of our organization.
It is used throughout the company in different divisions and at our corporate level. When used in a division recently the personnel from different departments directly inputted data and monitored their budget against actual. It is very user friendly and flexible.
We have used Adaptive for years and it works well as we adapt to changing business scenarios. We can make changes and see potential impacts to our business before they occur.
This is one of the best features as personnel in different areas at different sites can work together on the budget, forecast or "what-if" models.
This product can be used in many areas of differing organizations. It can be adjusted to almost any business model I can think of...extremely flexible.
