Overall Satisfaction with Prophix

We use Prophix extensively for budgeting and variance analysis; it allows us to quickly execute both processes in a timely and efficient manner, while being effective. We are able to perform variance analysis on a monthly basis fast enough to enable leaders to make important decisions based on recent performances of the company.
  • Multiple scenarios for budgeting
  • Automatic reports
  • Analysis dashboards
  • ERP integration
  • Formatting changes when modifying a report
  • Needs more user friendly interface for navigation to/from pages
  • Streamlined budgeting and planning
  • Streamlined variance analysis
  • Faster month end reporting
We continue to use Excel, however integration with Prophix is easy since it can be integrated and even can copy and paste from Excel into Prophix. That being said, [from my experience] Excel is used across the organization and comes with unlimited licenses for our organization and therefore it is still more of a universal tool to use compared to Prophix

Well suited for budgeting and forecasting - allows for multiple scenarios to be created and analyzed also well suited for variance analysis as automatic reports can be created and generated on a timely basis. Allows for insights across the organization and details can be drilled into easily less appropriate for business case development.
