Adaptive Insights Showcases Business Planning Cloud Integration with Sage Intacct ERP

Expands presence at Advantage 2018, highlights 200+ joint customers that combine its cloud planning platform with Intacct ERP for business success

Oct 22, 2018

ADVANTAGE 2018 – Adaptive Insights, a Workday company, showcases the business value of combining Adaptive Insights Business Planning Cloud and Sage Intacct ERP this week at Advantage 2018. Strong demand for planning and analytics that tie to the system of record enables Adaptive Insights to continue to add new customers that use Sage Intacct with its Business Planning Cloud. This brings the total number of organizations trusting the combined cloud-native platforms to more than 200 worldwide. Attendees can engage with Adaptive Insights, a platinum sponsor of Advantage 2018, across the conference as Business Planning Cloud is featured throughout the exhibit hall, sessions, and customer and partner events.

Combining Business Planning Cloud with ERP systems enables organizations to get business agility in a fast-moving world. Powerful modeling in an easy to use platform offers a comprehensive view of the business. The company currently supports integrations with more than 200 different ERP, CRM, HCM, and other systems, giving finance and business planners across the organization access to financial and operational data they need to make better decisions faster.

Glint Inc., a LinkedIn company, is a people success platform company that integrates Business Planning Cloud with Sage Intacct and Salesforce solutions to automate budgeting, forecasting, and reporting. “A traditional finance role means tracking budgets vs. actuals, and often doing it in Excel—that’s not the value I believe a finance department can bring,” said Frederick Kurniadi, finance director, Glint. “By using Adaptive Insights integrated with our ERP and sales platform, we’re able to pull new data in a matter of minutes and provide a daily summary for leadership—or allow our business users to ‘self-service’ and generate reports on their own. The countless hours freed up by this integration are now spent showing our value through more strategic forecasting activities that support the company’s business objectives.”

Combining ERP and Business Planning Cloud Elevates Role of Finance Across Organizations

Critical accounting and finance processes like month-end close, reporting, and annual budgeting take too long due to disjointed data sources, multiple versions of the truth, and version control issues. Customers that integrate cloud financial management software such as Sage Intacct with Business Planning Cloud save time, deliver more accurate forecasts and reports, and add strategic value to the organization.

The role of finance at media company Legendary Entertainment has changed with this combination. “Adaptive Insights was a game changer for us because we now have a powerful modeling platform that let us more efficiently and accurately report on budget vs. actual results,” said Kelly Wall, vice president, accounting, Legendary Entertainment. “Combining Intacct ERP and Business Planning Cloud, we have the data we need readily available and that gives finance time to analyze the results and adapt our business more quickly. As a result, finance is a trusted and strategic partner to our organization.”

Adaptive Insights Business Planning Cloud is sold direct and through a channel network that includes referral partners, system integrators, solutions provider partners, and system integrator vendors. Today, Adaptive Insights has nearly 20 partners that also offer Sage Intacct to their clients, including many that achieved Sage Intacct 2018 President’s Club Award.
