Incredible Performance & Functionality

Reviewed on 2021/04/29

The performance of Acterys is great. It's fast and reliable. The resource library (wiki Page) is content rich and updated regularly. The solution integrates beautifully with Power BI and Excel. The right back functionality is an absolute game changer. After engaging with this product, you get the feeling that there is a very competent team behind this product, one that has a great understanding not only how to build a great product, but how to scale it without compromising on performance. Well done to everyone involved. Incredible work.

Pros

Incredible performance backed by best in the business technology like MS Azure SQL Server. There is a great set of features built into this product. The ability to add additional cubes and right back functionality is fantastic. Its easy to implement and to built beautiful reports in a day. Complicated DAX measures...it all done for you. Very impressed.

Cons

There is really a lot of features and it can be overwhelming if you do not know where to start. Once you learn to navigate the wiki page, it really does get a lot less overwhelming.

Taking Excel and Power BI to the next level

Reviewed on 2020/07/28

Budgeting, Planning and forecasting within a multiple entities , currencies and systems. Financial consolidation with inter company eliminations

Pros

End to end platform. Acterys picks up the hardest part of CPM and BI... data management and data modelling. I have worked with other solutions, as soon as you get into data integration or transactional data, you start to reach the limits the system too quickly. The level of automation and flexibility is unparalleled. Beautiful Power BI templates with pre-baked financial intelligence, with the ability to build custom reports from scratch ... if you have either a planning, reporting, financial consolidation Or BI requirement and you use Excel and or Power BI, this is an absolute must

Cons

Great customer experience. Some initial configuration for the workflow

XP&A in a Day

Reviewed on 2021/03/30

Solution fully integrated in Power BI, MS Excel and finally MS Azure/SQL Server, really seamlessly built on Microsoft technologies. Can be also setup OnPrem, which was one of our requirments. Extremely fast, performant write-back engine.

Pros

It took us literally only one day to implement an integrated financial planning model (PL, BS, CF) based on our existing Power BI reports. Fully parameterized simulation, budgeting, and rolling forecast. We could easily leverage from exisiting demo templates Acterys is packaged with. We could easily enhance our initial planning model to any further xP&A planning requirements by adding and connecting additional planning cubes.

Cons

Acterys provides really an overwhelming set of features, which could be challenging for beginners. But there's a great support team and the help file/Wiki with best practice samples and templates finally helping in any such situation.

Acterys Planning and writeback - Compelling product

Reviewed on 2021/03/29

I have only had positive experiences from Agility [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and colleagues have always supported me from the beginning. Never to much of a hassle to resolve my demanding issues and questions.

Pros

Writeback functionality from Power Bi is amazing. We have one source of the truth and no more excel workbooks with links all over the place. No version difference. Easy to integrate and use once over the learning curve.

Cons

My only negative, and i understand now that its a feature of the product. Its not intended to be a replacement of an ERP system or database, so is limited once the cube becomes too large.

Great experience and ease to use tool for planning and budgeting

Reviewed on 2018/08/02

Support, training, consulting and a good team worried about a satisfied client for long term partnership relationship.

Pros

Integration between ease to use tools like Excel and Power BI, so the user can use common financial tools and create stunning reports for Planning, Financial and Budgeting and control daily basis operation, with a great write back to a consistent model as a backend system. The integration with Financial systems like ABC, QuickBooks Online, and Xerox is a good tool.

Cons

Some financial basic knowledge that the user need as a pre requisite. In that case the user can ask for training, webinars or support.

Response from Managility

Gaston, Thank you for the kind review of Acterys! Just one little addendum: the accounting system supported with a one click connector is Xero not Xerox.

Acterys leverages best-of-breed technology, SQL, PowerBI, and adds their secret sauce of enabling write back with pretty amazing techniques like splashing and planning and multi-level simultaneously. Hence we can leverage the current team and create value seamlessly with low code technologies

Cons

Regular growing pains of keeping up with PowerBI deployments and continuous upgrades. Due to fast advancing technologies, you need to ensure you are adopting best practices as they are developed
