Ever since Adaptive Planning’s founding in 2003, our mission has remained constant — to provide a refreshing new solution that fundamentally changes the world of financial planning and reporting for companies and nonprofits of all sizes.
We’ve been making excellent progress in delivering on this mission over time. We continue to set the standard for on-demand corporate performance management (CPM) solutions, with the most customers, most users, most partners, most awards, and highest customer satisfaction.
Adaptive Planning’s software as a service (SaaS) delivery model presents significant advantages over traditional on-premise corporate performance management software.
Because SaaS is truly a service business model, there is a profound cultural difference in doing business with Adaptive Planning 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 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 by two leading analyst firms, Gartner and BPM Partners.
Similarly, we strive to make it as easy as possible to “do business with us,” providing transparency in our operations by publishing pricing, uptime information, customer support cases, training, and more online.
Adaptive Planning’s solutions provide extraordinary value, compared to both spreadsheet-based planning and reporting solutions and enterprise software alternatives.
While Excel is ubiquitous and seems low-cost, Excel-based processes are surprisingly expensive when the costs of personnel time are considered. With Adaptive Planning, a typical midsized company or division can reduce planning times by up to 90%, save tens of thousands of dollars per year, and generate a 650% ROI and 6-month payback.
And Adaptive Planning’s total cost of ownership (TCO) is a fraction of that for enterprise software alternatives. By shortening services projects, eliminating new hardware and software purchases, reducing training costs, and limiting the need for ongoing IT support, Adaptive Planning delivers a TCO that’s 75% less than that of on-premise solutions.
Over 1,600 companies and nonprofits and tens of thousands of users in over 80 countries have moved beyond spreadsheets and streamlined their budgeting, forecasting, reporting, and analysis processes with Adaptive Planning.
Over the last several years Adaptive Planning has been the fastest growing company in the performance management segment, adding customers at a 100% compound annual growth rate.
A primary reason for this rapid growth is that Adaptive Planning provides exceptional value for companies of all sizes, from small companies and nonprofit organizations through multi-billion dollar corporations.
In fact, enterprise clients — those over $500 million in annual revenues — represent approximately 25% of our business. And our clients span the globe: over 17% are located outside the United States.
Adaptive Planning’s 400+ worldwide partners extend the value of our solution, offering additional expertise, services, or technology.
Adaptive Planning partners resell, refer, support, or provide strategic consulting services around our solution. They are critical to our success, influencing approximately 40% of our new business.
Our partners come in many forms, including CPA firms, VARs, technology consulting firms, business consulting firms, other advisors to finance organizations, software companies (both SaaS and on-premise), and technology platform providers. We offer a comprehensive program to support our partners’ diverse marketing, sales, implementation services, and training requirements.
