When it comes to financial and operational reporting and budgeting, our BI360 Solution delivers everything your organization needs: detailed reporting that runs live on your ERP, excel- and web-based with mobile access, pre-defined templates, drag and drop simplicity, and very easy implementation. But a growing area of interest for many of our customers is our BI360 data warehouse, which has the capability to bring in all kinds of data in addition to financial and budget data, such as statistical data and operational data sources.
For example, in the education industry, a university could use our data warehouse to more effectively track critical information such as student enrollment, registration, faculty performance, financial information—everything a university needs to turn stagnant data into a competitive advantage. For a healthcare organization, it could be patient records or healthcare system statistics that would not only deliver better compliance with industry regulations, but better patient care as a result.

With BI360, any industry-specific organization with high-value data can pull that information into our data warehouse to glean insights and make it part of its standard reporting process. From there, it’s easy to combine it with financial data for powerful dashboards and management reports. These are just some of the ways organizations can use BI360 data warehouse as the engine of their business intelligence solution, and drive better decisions as a result.

Getting an overview of your sales, top customers and products is quick and easy with BI360 dashboards. With intuitive, drag-and-drop simplicity, you can customize your data and create dashboards on the fly with pre-defined widgets and modules.

BI360 dashboards are web-based for both designers and end users, and offer total visibility into your business. Like every other BI360 product, our dashboards are created for business users and don’t require advanced levels of technical expertise. Plus, they offer out of the box integration for real-time ERP or data warehouse-driven dashboards. BI360 dashboards are part of the BI360 Portal and come integrated with the BI360 web reporting module, providing a single environment both for financial reporting and for dashboards. In other words, if a manager is looking at a sales dashboard, he or she is just a click away from running a live balance sheet report and drilling down into a cash account to see live transactions from the ERP database. BI360  is the only BI suite that provides this type of flexibility within a single solution and a single web portal!

LOS ANGELES, CA, January 15, 2014 – Solver, Inc., a global leader in Business Intelligence for Microsoft Dynamics AX, GP, NAV, SL and other enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, today announced record revenues and customer base growth for 2013.

“2013 was a fantastic year for Solver. Our BI360 suite for reporting, budgeting, dashboards and data warehousing grew the customer base in record numbers world-wide. We also launched the BI360 web portal as the first company in the market with a report writer than runs both in Excel and in a browser and that can run live on the ERP database as well as on a data warehouse. While North America and EMEA have been core markets since we launched BI360 four years ago, we are now also firmly established in the Asia-Pacific region, less than two years after we entered the market there, and we have started our roll-out in Latin America” said Nils Rasmussen, CEO at Solver.

Solver’s BI360 suite represents a new generation of Business Intelligence tools that can be managed by the finance team as well as operational managers, without the need for IT skills. Live reporting directly on the ERP system’s database offers immediate ROI as users can start developing reports from the minute that BI360 has been installed. Drill down from financial statements to detail such as invoices and purchase orders, gives department heads the ultimate tool to answer their questions without ever having to ask accounting staff to run reports or to do lookups in the ERP system.

“Customers using ERP systems like Microsoft Dynamics AX, GP, SL, NAV and Sage have long been looking for replacement tools for legacy reporting and budgeting solutions like FRx, Forecaster, Cognos, Hyperion and Microstrategy, and BI360 is becoming a natural upgrade path due to the deep, live ERP integration as well as the familiar Microsoft Excel and web user interface”, said Mike Applegate, VP of Development at Solver. “Our resellers and customers are also in for a big treat now at the beginning of 2014 as we roll out version 4.0 with a brand new dashboard module, KPI calculator, 38 new modules in the BI360 data warehouse, Apple apps and many exciting new features and capabilities.”

People often ask me about our focus on the mid-market. There’s no question this is our area of strength. We’ve always been committed to over-delivering for our partners and customers, most of which happen to be in the mid-market. While we have customers in the multi-billion dollar revenue range, and our BI360 solution can certainly address the needs of any-sized enterprise, we like the mid-market because we know we can out-perform the competition and over-deliver on world-class customer service.
Another reason we thrive in the mid-market is because that’s where we started. Even our old consulting-focused business in the past has always been in the mid-market. We started working with ERP systems and grew our partner channel, all of which are pretty much focused on mid-market and the Microsoft platform.
Lastly, mid-market organizations traditionally haven’t needed—and probably couldn’t have afforded—a full-blown business intelligence solution. When I say business intelligence, I define that as financial reporting, consolidations, operational reporting, budgeting, forecasting, dashboards and data warehousing. We’ve always seen this as a competitive advantage, because our BI360 solution does provide all of these capabilities, and is priced for the mid-market enterprise.
As we continue to develop cutting-edge BI solutions for the mid-market, we’ll also continue to expand and serve those larger customers who want a highly flexible, cost-effective BI solution, some of them are currently using legacy solutions like Hyperion and Cognos and looking for a more modern platform that their business users can manage without constant IT or consulting assistance. But truth be told, we’ll focus on listening to our customers’ needs and develop BI360 accordingly, always thinking about ease-of-use when we develop new functionality, because that’s where we’ve built our foundation from the beginning!
