Background

The company’s software as a service (SaaS) platform allows finance and management teams to work together to plan, monitor, report on, and analyze financial and operational performance. With capabilities for budgeting, forecasting, reporting, consolidation, dashboards, and business intelligence, Adaptive Insights enables finance, sales, and other business leaders to make better, faster, more collaborative decisions that drive a true competitive advantage.

The company is the #1 fastest growing cloud business analytics and CPM software company on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ list; and ranks #1 in customer satisfaction in independent industry surveys. With customers and partners in 85 countries worldwide, the company has the strongest channel ecosystem in the cloud CPM space, with worldwide partners including Armanino, Intacct, IntuitiveTek, Plex Systems, SAP, and NetSuite, which offers a specialized version of Adaptive Insights as the NetSuite Financial Planning Module.

Adaptive Insights' software as a service (SaaS) delivery model presents significant advantages over traditional on-premises corporate performance management software.

  • Faster Deployments. Projects average weeks of consulting time, versus months or years for traditional software.
  • Greater Ease of Use. Our intuitive user interface combines the best of consumer applications with the familiarity of Excel, and is designed for business users of all types, dramatically reducing training time and speeding adoption.
  • Limited Need for IT. No new hardware, software, or IT support is required – just a browser and an Internet connection.
  • Automatic Upgrades. All users immediately get access to new features, without the need for ongoing IT support.
  • Lower Costs. Annual subscriptions, rapid projects, and lack of IT needs keep both upfront and ongoing costs extremely low & up to 75% lower than the cost of on-premise solutions.

Delighted Customers

Because SaaS is truly a service business model, there is a profound cultural difference in doing business with Adaptive Insights versus traditional software companies.

The subscription-based business model does an excellent job of aligning our interests with those of our clients – we’re profitable only if clients are successful and renew over time.

As a result, we are keenly focused on providing exceptional value to attract and retain satisfied customers. And it shows – we’re proud to have been named #1 in customer satisfaction and usability by multiple leading analyst firms.

Similarly, we strive to make it as easy as possible to do business with us, providing transparency in our operations to our customers and partners.
