Birst Inc., the leading provider of agile business analytics, today announced that Birst’s easy-to-use, enterprise-class business analytics have reduced the time Internap spends on reporting by 40 hours per week, saving the equivalent of a full-time employee headcount. This reduction, coupled with the ability to quickly access real-time information and analysis, is enabling Internap employees to increase productivity and make faster, more-informed decisions.
Internap provides intelligent IT Infrastructure services that allow its customers to focus on their core business, improve service levels, and lower the cost of IT operations. Using Birst, Internap has reduced the time its employees spend on reporting activities by 40 hours per week, allowing that time to be reallocated to focus on the company’s core business. Utilized by executives, product managers, and market managers, Birst is helping Internap analyze data from Salesforce.com in real-time, tracking and identifying trends across a number of key performance indicators (KPIs), including sales funnel size and opportunity conversion rates. The resulting information serves as a shared foundation for daily decision-making.
“Our investment in Birst has paid off exactly as we anticipated,” said Nelson Santini, Vice President of Sales Operations at Internap. “Birst ensures that we’re all looking at the data through the same lens, so that we can more easily reach consensus and make better, faster decisions. We’re all on the same page, with more time and an improved understanding of how to do what’s best for our business.”
Internap selected Birst to replace an existing business intelligence (BI) solution that was overly complex to manage. Birst is providing the low-cost, advanced functionality and ease of use that Internap required, and is combining these capabilities with its extensive BI expertise and exceptional customer service to ensure the deployment’s long-term success.
“Birst is transforming the BI industry by providing a solution that maximizes flexibility, functionality, and affordability, while minimizing complexity and time to market,” said Brad Peters, CEO of Birst. “Traditionally, BI has been available only to large organizations that could afford lengthy, costly, complex deployments. Now, Birst is pioneering agile business analytics that—for the first time—allow organizations of all sizes to benefit from enterprise-class BI that is also low-cost, and easy to use and deploy.”
