Leading Provider of Operations Intelligence Software Extends Worldwide Reseller Channel
Transpara Corporation, a leading provider of operations intelligence software, today announced a Business Development relationship with the Bridge Incubation Group. The only composite Key Performance Indicator (KPI) software that delivers on-demand operations data from multiple data sources to any desktop or mobile browser, Visual KPI will now be marketed throughout EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). With the ability to view trends over time and access instantaneous snapshots of role-based data, decision makers benefit from comprehensive, complex and rich analysis of business-critical data. The agreement involves the development of localized market strategies, set-up and management of sales channels and various business development and marketing activities.
“Visual KPI is a critical tool for customers, providing people on the move with a unique solution for on-demand access to KPIs,” said Bridge Incubation Group CEO Johan Pellicaan. “Intelligent decision making is still a problem for most companies. While the quantity of data has increased dramatically, many still use the same tools that were used a decade ago to become informed. This increased amount of data and the speed with which people need to make a good decision require more effective ways to communicate relevant business data. With Transpara’s Visual KPI, users are informed quickly, with comprehensive, real-time data, leading to vastly improved decision making.”
“Enterprise customers are looking for solutions to manage and effectively use the massive amounts of data generated from multiple and disparate sources throughout the organization,” said Matthew Littlefield, Research Analyst with Aberdeen’s Global Manufacturing Practice. “According to our research results, Transpara enables customers to extend the power of their existing data sources to mobile devices, and deliver actionable, role-based data to personnel, no matter where they are, in the field or in the office. With Visual KPI 3.0, data is presented in context, through intuitive KPI maps and scorecard views, ensuring users throughout the organization have real-time operations intelligence at their fingertips for smart, fast decision making.”
“We are pleased to work with the Bridge Incubation Group to further develop our activities in the EMEA region,” said Michael Saucier, CEO of Transpara. “The Bridge Incubation Group’s vast experience in the channel, and background in enterprise mobility and business intelligence make them an ideal partner to increase international exposure and drive more business with global accounts.”
Visual KPI aggregates operations, financial and infrastructure information from multiple, existing data sources and delivers role-based, actionable KPIs to users via the desktop, laptop, or more than 250 mobile devices. The web-based software enables users to easily create and customize composite KPIs and scorecards without any additional programming, using information from any combination of existing data sources, including the OSIsoft PI System, Rockwell RSSQL, Invensys InSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, SmartSignal, OLE DB and Web Services. Leveraging the Microsoft infrastructure for all installations, Visual KPI is based on the familiar platform of Microsoft Excel, Internet Information Server and SQL Server 2005, and is the only composite KPI engine that works with the 2007 Microsoft Office system, including Excel Services, Performance Point Server and Office SharePoint Server 2007.
