San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
Birst Inc., the leader in agile business analytics, today announced that it has transformed the decision-making process at Grupo Tress Internacional, a leading provider of solutions for human resources (HR), payroll, and time and attendance administration. Birst is providing Grupo Tress Internacional with faster, easier access to detailed reporting and analysis across sales, finance, and operations, enabling employees to collaborate more easily and make faster decisions based on up-to-date information. Additionally, Grupo Tress Internacional is leveraging Birst’s industry-leading business intelligence (BI) technology to provide clients with a comprehensive view of their HR-related information across locations.
Founded in 1991 and headquartered in Mexico, Grupo Tress Internacional designed and delivered the world’s first solution combining HR, payroll, and time and attendance functionality. In the course of creating a client-facing solution based on Birst’s business analytics platform, Grupo Tress Internacional began also using Birst to improve upon its own internal reporting processes. Birst now tracks and analyzes the organization’s key performance indicators (KPIs) across sales, finance, and operations, combining data from on-premise and software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications—and even spreadsheets. With the industry’s first comprehensive BI solution available in the cloud and on-premise, Birst is providing Grupo Tress Internacional with enterprise-class functionality combined with all the advantages of a SaaS solution.
“Birst means faster decisions—and faster results,” said Miguel Mejia, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Grupo Tress Internacional. “It has completely changed the dynamics of our meetings and become integral to our decision-making process. We can show a nice graph that tells us quite a bit, quickly move to a table for a numerical view, and then drill down for additional detail. We’re able to look at things on the fly as interesting questions arise without having to say ‘I’ll get back to you on that.’”
Grupo Tress Internacional clients include a large number of multinational corporations that operate plants in as many as 40 different sites in Mexico alone—with separate implementations of Grupo Tress Internacional solutions in each. Built using Birst’s affordable, business analytics platform, the new Grupo Tress Internacional BI solution is designed to combine and analyze data from these implementations to enable clients to make faster, more-informed decisions. Companies leveraging Birst to create client-facing BI solutions can pick from a number of options ranging from basic customization and white labeling of the Birst solution, to full integration of a complete and feature-rich Birst environment within an organization’s existing product.
“The agility of Birst business analytics is unmatched in the marketplace. Birst can perform superior reporting and analysis, and also serve as a platform for creating new BI solutions. It can be deployed on premise or in the cloud, and still deliver advanced functionality,” said Brad Peters, CEO of Birst. “All of this means that Birst is leading a transformation in the BI industry, providing organizations with the business insight they need—quickly, easily, and affordably.”
