Bison Analytics, a leading specialist in extraction and delivery of accurate QuickBooks data for analysis, has partnered with InetSoft Technology, an innovator in mashup-driven dashboard and reporting solutions, to bring QuickBooks users the ability to visualize their data in unique and innovative ways. Using InetSoft’s Style Intelligence BI solution as the front-end for their Bison System, Bison Analytics enables users to view their information in dashboards and detailed analytics reports anytime, anywhere.
The Bison System is a specialized, hosted business intelligence tool with the best data connector available for millions of QuickBooks customers. The Bison System extracts customer QuickBooks data, securely transfers it to the Bison Servers, and then immediately processes it into the customer’s database. Within moments, the data is available for dashboards and customized reporting for QuickBooks business stakeholders.
The Bison System is the most intuitive, flexible, and simple-to-operate reporting system on the market, thanks to its integration with Style Intelligence. Clients can quickly create personalized dashboards and reports, and provide secure access to QuickBooks data on an as-needed basis. Dashboards, visualizations, and highly formatted reports are easily created in a Web browser by clients or ProAdvisors. Additionally, the Bison System enables users to import their own data from Excel, creating instant mashups of anything the user can imagine. With the Bison System, this is completed in minutes, not days.
The Bison System is full of high-level features that are easy to use for QuickBooks companies.
For example, QuickBooks companies can place alerts on key metrics and be emailed if an important threshold is crossed, or they can schedule reports to be delivered via email first thing in the morning.
Bison Analytics’ CEO, Kurt Steckel, explains: “Bison Analytics chose to partner with InetSoft because of their ease-of-use and industry-leading features. Now, with our partnership, we provide the tools to empower average business users to do in-depth analysis easily, without a learning curve, and without IT involvement.”
"The true beauty of this partnership is that QuickBooks companies get real analytics and dashboards with little to no effort. Growth-centered companies can compete more effectively with the deep analytics power this partnership provides. QuickBooks ProAdvisors are finally provided the necessary tools to consult with their clients instead of having to wrestle with building complicated reports.”
Mark Flaherty, CMO of InetSoft Technology, echoes Kurt’s enthusiasm: “This is a great joint solution that fills a void in the marketplace. QuickBooks users have been hamstrung in their reporting ability by the limited analytics functions available to them out of the box. Not only that, but they have been missing out on the power of interactive dashboards and self-service visual analysis that the Bison Analytics/InetSoft joint solution provides. With Bison Analytics expertise and the technology they bring, we are very pleased to expand the range of data sources our BI platform supports, and the catalogue of ‘Integrated with InetSoft’ solutions.”
