Overall Satisfaction with Adaptive Suite

Adaptive Suite is being used across the company by approximately 80 budget owners. It allows our company to make real time changes to our budget so that all budget managers can see the impact.
  • Real time changes.
  • No need to distribute countless Excel budget templates to budget owners.
  • All budget owners are able to view supporting information to their budget values.
  • I still find Discovery hard to understand.
  • We have learned a lot about saving reports to our personal folders but a few got lost along the way.
Adaptive Suit allows you to be as involved as you want to be. People are able to implement Adaptive Suite with little or no consulting for smaller companies. Larger companies may utilize consultants but as a user, it is easy to make changes along the way.
We are still working through our connector implementation to our ERP system. However, importing flat files with year to date general ledger data for the current year as well as the prior two years has been very simple.
We love how easy it is to make changes in our budgets and budget managers are immediately able to see the changes.
I think it is important to understand the budget owners and their likeliness to go into a software and make changes. It is also very important to understand your chart of accounts and company structure. Adaptive Suite allows for multiple levels and workflow and this can be very helpful during the set up phase.
