Lehi, Utah (PRWEB) September 25, 2013
NetSteps, a leading provider of technology solutions to the Direct Sales industry, announced the release of ENCORE Business Intelligence Manager, the industry’s first true enterprise-class Data Warehouse solution for robust sales performance management including reporting, business intelligence and data mining. The engine will be complimented with tools for complex data transformations, data cleansing, data standardization, data visualization, analysis and collaborations, as well as professional services from NetSteps’ Business Intelligence Team. Advanced users will have the opportunity to publish reports and dashboards, both on and off-line, on all major mobile platforms or within existing web-based portals. Custom data connections and analytic services including integration with any third-party data are also available.
Understanding that organizations need more than transactional “reporting” to effectively manage the dynamic performance of direct sales companies, NetSteps has been investing for over a year with a team of industry experts to build out a true enterprise-class Data Warehouse infrastructure. This same ENCORE Business Intelligence Manager will now power all standard ENCORE Corporate Reports along with all custom and ad-hoc reporting, data mining and analytics.
An important distinction is that the Business Intelligence Manager is a stand-alone, independently licensed application that does not require any other ENCORE product deployment. While ENCORE customers will enjoy automatic integration for their standard corporate reports, the Business Intelligence Manager can be set up to work with any data source through industry standard and custom connection methods.
NetSteps offers the solution in two levels plus options and consulting to meet the needs of small and large organizations. Business Information Express delivers the standard ENCORE corporate performance reports; now powered by the Business Intelligence Manager. The upgrade Business Information Pro solution is available for organizations that want additional functionality such as ad-hoc reporting, embedded reports, graphical visualization and private. The upgraded Pro version will also enable the option of providing access to native applications or web optimized reports from any mobile platform. Additional custom solutions for third-party data integration and analytics are available as professional services.
“The ENCORE Business Intelligence Manager is architected as a state-of-the-art, robust engine to support all types of business information reporting and data analysis,” says NetSteps’ CTO Mike van Thiel. “The expert team behind it has been delivering database solutions for over 20 years and this is a true enterprise-class solution that will be a great asset to executives managing the performance of their direct sales companies.”
