Adaptive Insights, the recognised leader in strategic corporate performance management (CPM) software, today announced that its customers have given the award-winning Adaptive Suite top ratings across five major business software review sites. User satisfaction has elevated the planning, reporting, and analytics platform to a 4.5-or-higher rating out of 5 stars on Gartner Peer Insights, G2 Crowd, TrustRadius, Capterra, and GetApp. The Adaptive Suite is the highest-rated CPM software solution among top competitors across these leading review sites.

High Ratings, High Volume on Each Site

  • In G2 Crowd and TrustRadius comparison charts for Best CPM Software, the Adaptive Suite is positioned highest with 4.5-star user ratings on both sites (as of August 28, 2017).
  • On Gartner Peer Insights, the Adaptive Suite is the most reviewed of top Strategic CPM Solutions, receiving 4.6 stars.
  • In the G2 Crowd Grid, the Adaptive Suite is the market Leader with highest customer satisfaction.
  • On both Capterra (2019) and GetApp, customers gave the Adaptive Suite a 4.5-star rating, across 132 reviews.

Customer Reviews Increasingly Influence Business Software Purchases
Customer reviews play a crucial role in business software purchasing decisions. According to Capterra, 97% of B2B buyers believe “user-generated content, like user reviews,” is more credible than other sources of information about a product. Additionally, TrustRadius reported that reviews are a more important external source of validation for buyers than case studies, testimonials, or analyst rankings.

“Review sites are a key step in my research for business solutions,” said Kavitha Sankar, director, business analysis & data management at renewable products company Amyris. “It’s so important to get a complete understanding of the product’s true capabilities, how a company’s customer service is, how easy it is to both implement and learn the software, etc.—all data that is challenging to get from a vendor meeting. Based on the reviews we read about the Adaptive Suite, we expected an exceptional experience, and it delivered.”

“Choosing the right CPM solution is key to corporate decision making, and I’m proud that so many companies remain enthusiastic about ours,” said Michael Schmitt, CMO of Adaptive Insights. “Review sites like these reduce risk for buyers, as they enable customers in the same roles with the same challenges to share their experiences—good and bad—about products. Achieving high rankings across the board is a testament to our commitment to deliver a best-in-class experience for our customers and drive better business results.”

Adaptive Suite Lauded as Easy, Powerful, and Fast
Alongside high rankings, written customer feedback from the leading review sites highlights the Adaptive Suite’s easy, powerful, and fast approach to planning, reporting, and analytics. “The software really can do all that it claims. It is very fast, dynamic and easy to use,” said one customer in the education industry on Gartner Peer Insights.

With enterprise companies in all verticals turning to Adaptive Insights, a $3B manufacturing company on Gartner Peer Insights said that the Adaptive Suite is “simply one of the best solutions I’ve used for FP&A. It is agile and powerful.”

“Adaptive [Suite] is extremely flexible and allows you to make multiple versions of your forecast quickly, which allows you to drastically reduce the amount of time it takes to create and edit a new month’s forecast,” said a customer in the software industry on TrustRadius. “It also updates in real time seamlessly for all users in an intuitive and powerful UI.”

“The major benefit that we have realised is how quick and accurate the budgeting, forecasting, and reporting processes have become,” an enterprise customer in retail commented on G2 Crowd. “Adaptive [Insights] is always changing and adapting to changes in the tech industry [as] they evolve year after year and get better.”

In 2017, Adaptive Insights has both rapidly expanded its customer base and made significant enhancements to its cloud-only product offerings, including new visual analytics capabilities in its Adaptive Suite 2017.2 release. Adaptive Insights’ new Software Planning & Analytics Solution includes best-practice benchmarking data from OPEXEngine to better meet the needs of its SaaS customers.
