Overall Satisfaction with Budgyt

As a nonprofit, I have 6 business managers who provide variance reports in Budgyt. We use Quickbooks and then export actual data to Budgyt, which houses our annual budget. The budgets are created by each manager and they are held to any variances. They then use these variances as one of their tools in setting the next year's budget...
  • Reports by Class
  • Comparison to previous year...budget or actual
  • Rolling up or expanding the data based on the audience
  • Automatic import or export for Quickbooks Desktop...but this is coming very soon!!
  • Other than the time factor for all managers and for myself, we have not seen additional ROI from it. But time is hugely valuable to us as a nonprofit with limited staff.
There is no comparison! Budgyt all the way!

Do you think Budgyt delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Budgyt's feature set?


Did Budgyt live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Budgyt go as expected?


Would you buy Budgyt again?


For a nonprofit with a budget or $3-$4M, it is perfect and I cannot imagine where it would not fit in. They have talked about a lot of additions that I believe will make this the perfect tool for any company, but for me, it is perfect--well, almost perfect!

Using Budgyt

9 - Admin and line managers
1 - This is such an easy software to support because Budgyt provides most of the support. So the type of person could be just about anyone.
  • Budgeting salaries and benefit
  • Tracking variances from budget to actual
  • seeing previous years compared to current for impacts of strategy changes
  • Not really anything. It does exactly what we needed it to do.
  • I do not see anything but Budgyt is very forward thinking and they probably will come up with something that I really need but haven't thought about it yet!
Changing to another product doesn't even cross my mind!

Evaluating Budgyt and Competitors

Yes - We were using excel and manually setting up budgets
  • Price
  • Product Features
Absolutely not. I am thrilled with my selection and would do it all over again!

Budgyt Implementation

We were fortunate to have the founder lead us through a video conference to teach our users how to use the system. Totally invaluable!
Change management was minimal - Nothing.
  • Hesitation. Nobody likes change.

Budgyt Support

There is not one issue that they haven't jumped in and helped me out...whether it was explaining or developing a new feature.

Knowledgeable team

Quick Initial Response
It is ongoing. They go above and beyond for everything that I ask for help...again, either walking me through how to do things, sending videos with steps of how to do things or coming up with new features based on my request.

Using Budgyt

Once you learn it, it is very usable.
