XLerant Rated Highest Among 15 BPM Vendors for Budgeting & Planning Functionality in the 2019 Pulse of Performance Management Survey

BudgetPak, budgeting, forecasting and management reporting software
from XLerant, also ranks highest in Overall Satisfaction, Customer
Support, and Ease of Use

STAMFORD, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CFOXLerant,
provider of the leading cloud-based budgeting, forecasting and
management reporting software BudgetPak, is pleased to announce that
their purpose-built solution received the highest scores among all
vendors for Budgeting & Planning Functionality, Overall Satisfaction,
Customer Support and Ease of Use in the BPM Partners Pulse of
Performance Management 2019survey.

Published by BPM
Partners
, the BPM Pulse Survey provides an unbiased and up to date
overview of the world of business performance management. The survey
results come directly from each vendor’s “users” or customer base. A
replay of the survey results webcast, presented by Craig Schiff, CEO of
BPM Partners, can be viewed here.
XLerant, the only vendor to receive perfect (5 of 5) scores in the
survey, was honored with three perfect scores for Overall Satisfaction,
Customer Support, and Ease of Use. This is the fourth year in a row that
BudgetPak received the highest scores for Ease of Use in the BPM Pulse
Survey; the solution was also top-ranked in Financial Self Sufficiency
and Ease of Integration.

In addition to evaluating software performance, the survey assesses new
and evolving industry trends and customer priorities for BPM software
solutions. The majority of the 360 respondents to the 2019 BPM Pulse
Survey (62%) represented mid-sized or mid-market businesses – and
budgeting and forecasting was the most-sought BPM solution. Ease of use
continues to top the list of features finance teams want in budgeting
and forecasting software — and the majority of survey respondents (68%)
are looking outside of their ERP for a best of breed solution. Features
supporting collaboration (such as shared documentation or the ability to
capture notes or commentary) as well as a guided workflow were also
ranked high as finance teams seek to engage department heads in the
budgeting process.

“XLerant is dedicated to supporting finance teams and engaging
department heads in decentralized budgeting environments,”
explains
Craig Schiff, CEO of BPM Partners. “They were the first solution
provider to offer a guided user interface approach to simplify the
budgeting and forecasting process for all users.
The result is an
easy to use, cost effective solution and – as evidenced by their scores
– customers clearly appreciate it.”
