Visual KPI’s Composite KPI Engine Enables Customers to Leverage Existing Technology Investment for On-Demand, Operations Intelligence on any Handheld or Desktop Browser
Transpara Corporation today announced the release of Visual KPI for 2007 Microsoft Office System. Visual KPI is the only composite Key Performance Indicator (KPI) engine available, which works with the 2007 Microsoft Office system, including Excel Services and Office SharePoint Server 2007. Based on the familiar platform of Microsoft Excel, Internet Information Server and SQL Server 2005, Visual KPI software delivers on-demand, business-critical data about process manufacturing and utility operations to any PDA, phone or desktop.
“By allowing users to leverage their existing Microsoft infrastructure and deep Excel knowledge, Transpara helps customers realize greater business value in creating composite KPIs and scorecards and monitoring overall performance metrics,” said Michael Saucier, CEO of Transpara. “With Visual KPI, customers can repurpose their existing technology systems without reinventing back-end data systems. This translates to immediate ROI, as users throughout the organizations can be up and running quickly, on a familiar system and with minimal training.”
Visual KPI enables users to easily create and customize composite KPIs and scorecards without any additional programming, and makes full use of SharePoint 2007 with native web parts and Excel 2007 services. With Visual KPI, users can access data from any combination of existing systems – including Excel Services, Business Scorecard Manager, any ODBC data source and OSIsoft’s PI system – and publish them for instant use by anyone in the organization or supply chain, from plant floor managers to executives.
“We are thrilled with the tremendous support and excitement we are seeing from our partners around the world in support of the launch of the 2007 Microsoft Office system, Exchange Server 2007 and Windows Vista,” said Rob Bernard, general manager, Worldwide ISV Group, Microsoft. “Our partners play a vital role in the early adoption, development and delivery of Microsoft technologies. By working closely with partners like Transpara, we are helping to provide our mutual customers with a high quality product, seamless technology integration, and improved user experiences.”
