Birst provided all the features and functionality we require—saving us the considerable time and effort of creating and maintaining it ourselves.
San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) June 05, 2012
Birst Inc., the leading provider of agile business analytics, today announced that Realtors Property Resource (RPR) has embedded Birst’s business intelligence (BI) technology within its existing software application to provide real estate brokers with detailed insight into the performance of their firms. Facing tight deadlines, RPR was able to leverage Birst’s analytics technology and expertise to quickly and easily incorporate into its existing application online dashboards to analyze massive amounts of property data.
A wholly-owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), RPR has a goal to create an online real estate library that provides NAR members with valuable data on every property in the United States. To further enhance its broad range of member services, RPR utilized Birst to develop the RPR Data Tool and Chart Service. At no additional cost, these tools will allow brokers to leverage the powerful RPR database across their entire market areas, providing access to analytics often available only to brokerages able to pay to license additional software packages. Custom, pre-defined, or ad hoc reports will analyze company performance and market share to help brokers spot trends, create more accurate forecasts, and develop more effective marketing strategies. Brokers will be able to set up a daily dashboard displaying key activity drivers.
“Birst provided all the features and functionality we require—saving us the considerable time and effort of creating and maintaining it ourselves,” said Kris Goodfellow, VP Product Management, Realtors Property Resource. “We’ve worked hard to ensure a positive user experience. Birst technology allows us to uphold our very high standards by creating a fully-branded, single sign-on (SSO) solution that provides an intuitive user interface and advanced analytical capabilities — all while maintaining our website’s existing look and feel.”
“With its flexible deployment options, affordability, and quick time to market, Birst is breaking down the barriers to successful BI and helping organizations realize the true value of their data resources,” said Brad Peters, CEO of Birst. “Using Birst, these businesses are able to leverage their data assets to increase revenues and attract and retain additional customers—without diverting resources from the pursuit of their core mission.”
