To ensure the efficiency and growth of their tug and barge fleets, Moran chose Pyramid Analytics to access data and provide visual reports for the company’s many business units. Moran serves 16 ports, each with its own localized management, dispatch and engineering functions, that are operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Moran’s IT department uses Microsoft’s Reporting and Power Pivot for many reporting and analytical needs. When the Moran team was researching future paths for their OLAP needs Pyramid emerged as a powerful addition to their existing systems. Moran’s President Ted Tregurtha said “We were looking for an easy to use system that allowed our management team to access and analyze the wealth of information that we collect about our operations. Pyramid provides a rich feature set that unlocks that data for our managers.

Pyramid Analytics Business Intelligence (BI) Office Suite provides a web-based Online Analytics Processing (OLAP) viewer that allows Moran’s users to fully exploit the rich functionality of Microsoft SQL Reporting Services and Analysis Server. Operating either as a standalone analytic toolset, or integrated into Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Pyramid provided a complete ad-hoc analytics interface that is both intuitive and powerful. It delivers query performance comparable to the best of breed desktop software. Custom designed for the market leading BI product – Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services – Pyramid’s interface has both the familiarity and the seamless integration of Office productivity suite, yet provides powerful analytic capabilities. bioXL, is a web-based OLAP viewer for Analysis Services cubes, providing users with the best access to ‘Analysis Services’ functionality to easily navigate and explore enterprise data stores. bioPoint allows business users to easily build interactive dashboards using bioXL views. Built from the ground up as a 64bit application, Pyramid’s BI tools are designed to handle large datasets, and can be rapidly deployed to scale up to thousands of users, finally making enterprise BI truly cloud compatible.

“We looked at a bunch of tools and really liked what we saw with Pyramid Analytics slice and dice capabilities and parameterized reports – no need to look any further”, said Ted Tregurtha, Moran’s President.
