San Francisco, CA, United States, 2011/05/19 - Mobile company uses ETL, analysis, and iPads to deliver analytics on marketing, sales, and customer churn across the organization.
Jaspersoft, maker of the world’s most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that Revol Wireless has successfully implemented the Jaspersoft BI Suite and has been able to boost performance by leveraging robust analytics and reporting. Revol Wireless, with a network stretching across parts of Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania, has over 500 retail distribution points for a unique flat-rate, unlimited nationwide wireless service. Using the Jaspersoft BI Suite, the company successfully analyzed data to more effectively manage customer churn, improve targeted marketing strategies, and drive sales performance improvements among employees across the organization.
Revol selected the Jaspersoft BI Suite after determining its cost, flexibility and customization advantages over legacy BI solutions from many well-known BI vendors. Among those advantages, Revol favored Jaspersoft ETL for its ability to extract and load data from different sources and support a graphical modeling environment to design multiple process flows. Revol also recognized that using a legacy BI vendor would come at a high cost due to restrictive licensing models. Finally, Revol determined Jaspersoft was the most flexible BI solution to complement the company’s other deployed open source technologies.
“Choosing Jaspersoft’s Business Intelligence Suite turned out to be a solid strategic choice,” said George Mehok, Revol Chief Information Officer. “We intended to develop highly customized analytics, dashboards with the ultimate goal of fully integrating BI into our customer relationship management systems. We found Jaspersoft’s technology was best able to meet this goal while providing robust functionality at an affordable price.”
The company recently deployed the next generation of customizable sales and churn dashboards, which includes iPad tablet device capability. Running Jaspersoft’s BI suite, the number of users utilizing the new BI analytics continues to increase as the users discover the value of the information Jaspersoft’s BI suite provides. This “anytime, anywhere” access to sales performance and customer data underscores the ease of use and the success of a customized business intelligence solution from Jaspersoft.
