Metastore and Intuitive partnership delivers ‘quick-to-deploy’ and ‘easy-to-use’ dashboards.
A partnership agreement between Netherlands-based electronic content management (ECM) specialist, Metastore, and UK-based Intuitive Business Intelligence (www.intuitivebi.com) is set to stir-up the Benelux business intelligence (BI) marketplace. The partnership is making a ‘quick-to-install’ and ‘easy-to-use’ dashboards solution, powered by Intuitive – ECM Dashboards - available to Benelux businesses via Metastore’s partner channel.
Jack Warnars, Managing Director from Metastore says, “Effectively harnessing and understanding data is the new gold. However far too many businesses are investing in hugely expensive, large-scale business intelligence systems that take months to install and weeks of training to understand.”
Unlike most BI systems, Intuitive’s data visualisation solution can be up and running very quickly. It is extremely flexible, can be viewed on a range of devices, including tablets and mobiles, and is very easy to understand, providing management with real-time business insights for faster and more accurate decision-making.
Warnars comments, “When we learnt of Intuitive’s dashboard technology, which fits our product portfolio perfectly, forming a partnership in order to bring the solution to the Benelux market seemed the next logical step.”
Roger Stocker, Sales Director from Intuitive Business Intelligence, says “With over 20 years’ experience providing IT solutions and services, in excess of 500 customers and a strong partner channel, Metastore is perfectly positioned to roll-out Intuitive’s dashboards to organisations throughout Benelux.”
Users of Metastore’s OpenText RightFax are already able to access ECM Dashboards. The solution will be made available to other Metastore customers and applications in due course.
Using ECM Dashboards, users of network fax server solution, OpenText RightFax, are provided with instant insights into their fax traffic, such as number of inbound and outbound faxes per department, which users send the most international faxes, number of failed faxes and top reasons for faxing errors. Such valuable insights help users to operate their RightFax system more efficiently and cost-effectively.
Warnars says, “The RightFax dashboards will totally transform how businesses manage their fax traffic, and with 75 per cent of our customer base using RightFax, this will provide us with a vital springboard for rolling-out the solution to other customers and applications.”
Metastore is also targeting multifunction printer (MFP) organisations across Benelux via its MFP partner channel. This is an entirely new solution for this marketplace and there is considerable interest in ECM Dashboards.
Warnars says, “We are excited about the possibilities ECM Dashboards presents to the multifunction printer market. No other dashboard solution is currently in use by MFP organisations and so there is a definite gap that we are keen to fill.”
Metastore is confident that ECM Dashboards will open-up opportunities with new BI partners, allowing it to grow its channel, as Warnars explains, “Partners are key to our business and so we are always looking to recruit suitable partners to take our solutions to market. ECM Dashboards opens-up a whole new channel opportunity for us.”
“We are on the lookout for experienced BI partners who are keen to work with us to exploit the significant gap in the Benelux market for quick-to-deploy and easy-to-use dashboard solutions.”
