We are very excited about the general release of this powerful feature and we look forward to bringing to market more innovative and advanced features supporting CGC’s rock-solid and well-respected ERP system. Mike Aspinwall, COO, JDM Technology Group

Scottsdale, Arizona – May 5, 2015 – Computer Guidance Corporation, the leading developer of ERP software solutions for the construction industry, today unveiled the general release of its Interactive Data Inquiry (IDI) functionality, the most innovative and advanced feature release supporting its data-driven ERP product development strategy. IDI fosters user accessibility to real-time and integrated data by helping users explore various data points in a seamless and intuitive way and making them available for advanced data mining and business analytics purposes.

IDI allows users to securely interact with and digest large quantities of information in a much more natural way. Embedded with every eCMS ERP application, the power of IDI technology perfectly blends data security and accessibility. With IDI, Computer Guidance customers can pivot while viewing their data to add or subtract fields, apply sorts and filters, and even examine their findings graphically. Data views can be defined on an ad hoc basis, saved at any time, or exported for further analysis without any need for manual formatting. The ability for a user to perform all of these activities on a single screen creates very smooth and continuous transitions, keeping the user interacting with data rather than hunting for programs.

Mike Bihlmeier, President of Computer Guidance Corporation describes IDI as, “A powerful and intuitive method to quickly access, explore and leverage the power of information. Data can help shape and inform just in the way it is presented. Data should not be a struggle to work with but rather it should work in unison with a user to come to an optimal solution. Further, we believe that a user should not be limited by data views and listings created by somebody else, instead information seekers should be free to explore an idea and possibly discover information that might have otherwise gone unseen.”

IDI marks the completion of the first joint product developed in collaboration with Computer Guidance’s sister companies that are part of JDM Technology Group.

“We are very excited about the general release of this powerful feature and we look forward to bringing to market more innovative and advanced features supporting CGC’s rock-solid and well-respected ERP system,” stated Mike Aspinwall, COO, JDM Technology Group. “Our joint product development efforts are focused on constantly expanding user interaction and accessibility of ERP data and process workflows.”
