Vareto
Cube

Built for

Mid-market to enterprise; designed to scale with companies as they grow.

Small and medium-sized businesses. Not designed to scale with businesses as they grow.

Implementation

Personalized setup and custom onboarding with in-house, dedicated Customer Growth Manager (with hands-on FP&A experience) as thought partner.

Implementation is an additional cost. Steep learning curve that requires reliance on support resources and Customer Success Manager.

Native integrations

50+ native ERP, HRIS, CRM, and other business system integrations (e.g., NetSuite, Salesforce, ADP) with in-house support.

Integrations require manual setup. Customers have said importing and fetching data from integrations can be slow, especially for large transaction volumes. Calculations can have some delay after data syncing.

Ease of Use

Walk-up usability for finance and business users alike. Finance users can set up models natively within Vareto and enjoy spreadsheet-like flexibility and the familiarity of Excel formulas and keyboard shortcuts. No technical skills are necessary for business users to plan, access, or create reports within Vareto.

Tool has been described as clunky and not intuitive. Primarily designed for FP&A user use rather than business stakeholder use.

Collaboration

Designed for streamlined collaboration between finance and business users. Share self-serve dynamic reports and plans with the benefit of granular permissions (by report or tab) to control who sees what. Gather inputs from and collaborate in real time with comments, @mentions, and annotations directly in Vareto. 

Not designed for business stakeholder use. No ability to control access permissions.

Reporting

Easily build and customize beautiful reports and dashboards without the need to write any code. Once set up, Vareto pulls in the latest data from your ERP, HRIS, CRM, and other systems to automatically keep reports up-to-date. Access the latest transaction-level data in a few clicks.

Users have reported slow loading time when pulling data from integrations and adding rows to models.
