Static planning with manual spreadsheets and processes or legacy on-premises solutions doesn't cut it anymore. That outdated approach creates risk and eats up a lot of productive time. The Adaptive Suite has helped thousands of organizations worldwide use active planning to transform their balance sheet and cash flow plans, revenue forecasts, headcount analysis, budgets, and expense plans, so that their planning process is collaborative, comprehensive, and continuous.
Trust your budgeting, planning, modeling, and forecasting process to drive results. Eliminate risk with always-fresh data, version-controlled plans, and driver-based models. Save time planning using workflows so that everyone is on task and working collaboratively. Engage your finance and business partners with easy-to-use planning sheets on the web as well as using our Excel-based interface. Give your users real self-service they’ll actually use—finally.
Spend less time compiling numbers and spend more time advising your business partners on the insights gained from real-time KPI dashboards. Powerful financial intelligence and analytics let you understand your business better: instantly visualize variances in a waterfall chart, compare periods, add multiple dimensions to your charts, drill down into source transactional data to get context, and take action by re-planning and forecasting. It's all connected to the same data sources, so data is always accurate and up to date.
No more copying and pasting, no more reporting delays — just always up-to-date reports, accessible from anywhere. Any user can build the financial reports they need just by dragging and dropping in a browser with a pivot table-style experience. Slice and dice the data however you need. Or use Adaptive OfficeConnect to combine our cloud-based CPM platform with Microsoft Office and deliver beautifully updated and accurate reports, presentations, and board books in minutes, not hours (or days). Spend less time building the same reports repeatedly and instead spend more time understanding your business.
Automate more, reduce risk, and close faster with powerful, built-in accounting intelligence. Adaptive Consolidation empowers accounting by simplifying journal entry management, automating reclassifications, and speeding intercompany eliminations and financial reports. Cut time and waste by validating data automatically and improving collaboration in your financial close process. And since the Adaptive Suite shares a common data platform, you can move from financial close to budgeting simply with one click.
The Adaptive Suite corporate performance management software is purposely-built on a powerful cloud computing platform, with a modern in-memory calculation engine. That means our highly scalable and secure architecture and infrastructure delivers consistent performance to our customers regardless of the number and location of users as well as the number and complexity of their models. We designed the software to be IT-friendly to minimize support costs, but let finance manage the applications. Users can collaborate from anywhere—via web, mobile, and with our Microsoft Excel Interface for Planning. Our Adaptive Integration framework lets business users easily connect the Adaptive Suite with common ERP, CRM, or HCM platforms such as Salesforce, NetSuite, Intacct, and MS Dynamics as well as custom data sources you may have in SQL, Oracle, Excel, etc.
We're using Adaptive Insights to do new types of reporting and analysis, and identify trends. It helps us continually understand business performance, share insights with the global team, and confidently decide what to do next.
