Adaptive Consolidation (for Multi-entity Organisations)
Adaptive Consolidation is an optional extension to Adaptive Planning, and is designed specifically for organisations with multiple entities to assist in handling intercompany transactions and eliminations. Reporting for multi-entity organisations with complex structures is already a time consuming and tough enough job, so imagine trying work that same logic into your budgets, forecast and what-if analysis.
Fortunately, Adaptive Consolidation considers all the intricacies involved with your actuals, budgets and forecasts when:
- The percentage interest in one or more entities changes up or down, or from controlling to non-controlling etc.
- Reclassifying accounts when consolidating the subsidiary’s GL to the parent’s GL
- There are changes to elimination and allocation rules
- Exchange rates must be considered for multi-nationals
- Adding new entities through takeovers and mergers

How much does Adaptive Insights cost?
Adaptive insights is licensed annually based on number of users accessing the system and overall size of company (based on employee counts). This makes the cost very affordable for smaller enterprises (up to 100 employees) and can be easily scaled up or down to suit the changing needs of the business.
As a cloud solution there is no hidden infrastructure or internal costs to worry about.
Implementation time can vary but can be completed in as little as 3 weeks depending on the complexity of the planning and reporting requirements.
QMetrix will always provide a detail scoping & design document along with a quoted fixed cost before undertaking any implementation.
Transitioning to more efficient, effective and manageable finance based processes is fundamental to good business, and whilst there is an initial upfront investment, the ROI is commonly less than 12 months.
ROI is often demonstrated through substantial time savings across the business, more accurate and frequent planning cycles, and ultimately better and timelier decision making.
How do I know if Adaptive Insights is right for my business?
Adaptive insights has a proven track record of driving efficient and effective planning and reporting across a wide array of industries and business sizes worldwide. However, to be sure if Adaptive Insights is a good fit, QMetrix is happy to provide a free Proof of Concept (POC) as part of the evaluation process.
A POC involves QMetrix building a complex component of your planning model using Adaptive Insights and handing it over to you to trial and test.
This generally only requires a couple of hour’s investment of your time, but can give you certainty that your investment decision is the correct one.
