Roughly 80% of the work done in most companies is done on the desktop
Palo Alto, California (PRWEB) February 26, 2009
Boardwalktech, Inc, a leader in Enterprise 2.0 technology and developer of the patented Boardwalk Collaboration Platform (BCP), has been profiled by Forrester Research, Inc. (Nasdaq: FORR) for information & knowledge management professionals who are involved in enterprise collaboration, financial management, information & knowledge management, office productivity, and packaged applications.
Quoting Forrester "as collaboration and enterprise 2.0 vendors promote the latest must-have innovations to improve information worker productivity, Silicon Valley startup Boardwalktech turned its focus to something a little more commonplace: spreadsheets. Boardwalktech's founders felt there was a big gap in how people work with spreadsheets and the collaboration capabilities provided by vendors like Microsoft. By creating its own platform for spreadsheet collaboration, Boardwalktech enables cell-level sharing and access control, change management, and integration with enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and legacy databases. This additional level of collaboration functionality lets people work with their familiar spreadsheets and processes while improving spreadsheet controls."
Using the Boardwalk Collaboration Platform, companies have quickly deployed applications including sales forecasting, supply chain planning, S&OP, project & portfolio management, product road mapping, development resource planning, pricing, and commission management--all on the same universal platform.
"Roughly 80% of the work done in most companies is done on the desktop," states Andrew T. Duncan, CEO of Boardwalktech. "Until now, if you wanted to enterprise enable a desktop process, you would consider deploying a new module from your ERP system, purchasing a new point solution, or creating your own application. With all these options, users always seem to return to the flexible and easy-to-use environment of a desktop spreadsheet. BCP gives companies the best of both worlds--the flexible business process modeling capabilities of a spreadsheet coupled with an enterprise quality, cell-level data sharing capability enabled through a newly patented database application."
