Dealer Services Picks Up Speed With Information Builders WebFOCUS

DSC Selects WebFOCUS as Enterprise Reporting Tool to Manage Dealer Risk and Increase Profitability

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 20, 2007) - Information Builders, the leader in production business intelligence (BI) solutions, today announced that Dealer Services Corporation, a national inventory financing company for used car and power sports dealers, has chosen Information Builders WebFOCUS as its enterprise BI standard based on the solution's scalability and quick, easy data access capabilities.

DSC raced from zero to 75 offices in less than two years, growing in size, employees, and revenue. As the company continues expanding, it has become critically important to have a business intelligence standard that allows users to self-serve without relying on IT for their reporting needs. With WebFOCUS, DSC can scale the right solution to hundreds of non-technical business users across the U.S., getting them the information they need, when they need it, to accurately manage dealer risk and make better decisions.

New dealers enter the market and existing dealers exit the market on a regular basis. With a WebFOCUS dealer risk report, DSC can track and monitor the criteria that usually occur before a dealer gets into trouble. This helps the dealer avoid default and minimizes the consequences for DSC should the situation deteriorate.

"DSC employees have years of inventory financing experience that enable them to understand customer needs and provide old fashioned service," said Chris Brady, CIO at Dealer Services. "A major driver in selecting WebFOCUS as our new reporting platform was its ability to easily scale to hundreds of savvy but non-technical business users."

"Technology should enable collaboration, not hinder it," said Gerald Cohen, CEO and founder of Information Builders. "Whether it's removing technical barriers to accessing data or delivering information to thousands of users, WebFOCUS is about bringing business intelligence to business users, thereby improving decision-making."
