Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Planful reviews

I love the people that I work with mostly, and the system is pretty amazing. I can easily geek out about it. Dynamic Reports are excellent, user friendly and add great value! The ease of setting up permissions and security is wonderful, and Planful does it's best to continue to make changes to their system to

Implemented this software solution at my office. It was less expensive than some of the other providers, and we expected the product to perform as such. There are some drawbacks to the product, but I think these are in-line with the price.

- Bradley G. Manager

Host Analytics Dynamic Planning has been the most flexible, dynamic and user-friendly analytical tool I have ever used in my 30+ year's career. Their customer support is second to none, and has always been there to solve any issues we encounter. The platform is ever-changing, based on challenges faced by and recommendations made by their customers. Each time operations requests a new or different way to analyze our market conditions, financial results, or forecasted projections, our department can produce their requests quickly and in real-time.

Brightidea reviews

This software made it easy to collect, sort, organize, analyze, and communicate about ideas submitted by a 1200+ person organization spanning sites across the east coast (as well as an array of home workers across the country).

- Kayla P. Consumer Analyst

The service at Brightidea stands out. Throughout the sales process and more importantly, since the sales process, Brightidea have been attentive while giving us the space to explore and use the platform. There a good transparent processes for raising requests for future enhancements. In the first few months we have set up a range of challenge in the platform with very few issues - overall, it is early days, but has been a good start.

- Oliver N. Corporate Innovation

We started an internal crowdsourcing approach using BrightIdea and this has resonated very well with our business members. They are pleased that their ideas are able to be heard and the process is transparent.

Pros & cons

Planful

Pros
OVerall is a great tool for the ease of standardizing and managing our reports
Great experience for me
We have a dedicated business systems resource on our team who helps a lot
Can include links to images of transaction source documents, providing great transparency in reporting
Spotlight for Excel add in to develop custom, refreshable reports is a great help
I honestly think it's great, particular for users whose current ERP systems are lacking in the core FP&A functionalities Planful provides."

Cons
A data pull is not immediate and can cause some frustration if data is not pulled 100% accurately the first time
The interface is pretty dated
I also mainly use chrome as my browser and there seems to be a lag time when scrolling in a template which is a bit of a pain
We have also transformed to a rolling forecast using modeling, so that the annual budgets required by lenders comes from the forecasts, and is no longer a time-consuming annual task
The new row sets are difficult to get to the exact detail and adjusting cold width can't be done in a cluster in chrome."

Brightidea

Pros
BrightIdea is a great software for innovation and collaboration
BrightIdea has been great because it gives us an easily accessible software to collect and store our innovative ideas
The company lives and breathes innovation par excellence
The experience with Brightidea has been great so far
I believe we made an excellent choice as a company for choosing Brightidea 2 years ago."

Cons
So many features and multiple ways to turn on and turn off those features that it is difficult to know if you did it right or wrong
The system has so many applications and I struggle to figure out a way to use them all
As with many providers of this type of software, getting it set up to track the metrics we need continues to be a bit of a struggle
Brightidea makes most tasks difficult
The backend is outdated and not intuitive."
