Why choose Drivetrain vs. Cube?

Fast-growing businesses trust Drivetrain for its robust integrations, multi-dimensional modeling, and dynamic reporting capabilities in a platform that can scale seamlessly.

Simple, powerful, and scalable

Say goodbye to manual data gathering and consolidation, cumbersome models, and limited reports. Building multi-dimensional models and reports is easy on Drivetrain.

“Drivetrain has very flexible forecasting models that allowed us to build our entire forecast – top-line, expenses, balance sheet and cash flow – to get them all interconnected with each other and our other systems.”

Andrew De Fanti
FP&A Manager at Quantum Metric

“Drivetrain automated data consolidation from NetSuite, Salesforce and Google Sheets. All finance reports (P&L, balance sheet, cash flow statement, headcount, ARR, pipeline) for actuals and plan are updated always. Very fast calculation speed. Nice friendly interface to easily create reports and models.”

Juan Sebastian
FP&A Director at Billwerk+

“Drivetrain can accommodate different scenarios, build outs, and integrations, which is beneficial, especially when dealing with various systems. Other companies seem to have more of a canned offering of functionalities and capabilities.”

Powerful Modeling

Build multi-dimensional interconnected models with ease

Drivetrain empowers finance teams to build powerful models without any limitations.

With Cube, in case you need more than 8 dimensions for reporting or planning you would need to purchase and build multiple individual "Cubes" such as "Finance Cube" and "HR Cube". And, transferring data between these cubes is complex, hindering your ability to easily build interconnected models for headcount planning, vendor expense forecasting, etc.

In-depth Analysis

Generate valuable insights quickly

Modeling in Drivetrain helps you understand what's driving your results at a granular level with the ability to easily look at your data in any dimension, including territories, segments, or products.

Scalable

Built to support fast-growing companies

Cube might be a reasonable choice for small businesses looking for a plug-and-play solution. However, fast-growing companies need a more scalable option. 

Because Cube is built on top of Excel, any limitation of Excel will inherently be a limitation in Cube.

Drivetrain has its own powerful data processing and calculation engine, which means the platform can support your increasing volumes of data and process complex workloads without any performance issues.
