Adaptive Discovery is a great way to share summary information in a format that people want to see. The Discovery tool in Adaptive allows users to create professional looking charts, graphs, data, gauges, etc. in a Dashboard view to get real time access to the key information that they need. Discovery is a good looking way to share high level information with users while providing them the access to customize their own dashboard and drill down to more detailed information stored in Adaptive. We have done some training and created dashboards for Finance. Our next step is to roll it out to the rest of the organization.
Adaptive is a very powerful FP&A software. The pros are the ability to customize it to meet virtually any planning need you have. The security options are very good compared to other products. The cons are the lengthy learning process to get accustomed to it, and to be able to build it or adapt it to meet your needs, but that is only because it is such a powerful tool. It is very worthwhile to pay for implementation services at least early on.
The vendor is small enough to give personalized attention but big enough to handle all sizes of companies. The product is easy to use, scalable, customizable and easy to navigate within.
I found Adaptive to be very easy to pick up at my new job, and I'm amazed at how easily they integrate with NetSuite and SalesForce.
I'm very impressed for performance, flexibility and power of this platform. As FP&A Manager, our main responsibility is to provide to Board of Directors accurate and timely information; and Adaptive help us to achieve our goals. The best pro of this tool: Is the adaptability, because allow built the model according your specific needs. Is important to mention as an another pro their stability and continuing improvement of key features. About the cons: Demand a lot of time (trial & error) the process of creating the model and their formulation.
We use Adaptive for all of our Expense and Revenue forecasting. The most difficult part with Adaptive is breaking away from the Excel based formulas that everyone is so used to nowadays and embracing the Formula structure built out in Adaptive. It takes some getting used to, but in the end makes it so that you can be far more confident that you do not have errors in your calculations. Using Adaptive regularly, you begin to really notice the power that you have at your hands and that the possibilities are limitless as long as you are willing to put forth the time to build it out. Having work with their training team, we have received excellent support and overall made our implementation much smoother than expected. They are very knowledgeable and continue to teach us new things.
Adaptive is fast to implement and requires no special programming skills. More complex implementations need to use best practices, really requiring the use of Adaptive's PS team or an experienced Consultant.
I think that the AI toolset is fantastic. It has allowed us to save countless hours by not having to update and maintain Excel spreadsheets. It allows us to analyze rather than validate the numbers in our version. The implementation was quick and our implementer, Juan Maldonado was awesome! Juan was always available and usually had the issue fixed before we left the conference call. The tool isn't as intuitive as it could be but once you understand how certain things work, it does make sense.
