PivotLink and OrderMotion Beat the Holiday Rush by Helping Online Retailers Improve Performance

SaaS Leaders Deliver New Insights With On-Demand Sales and Order Management Analytics Based on PivotLink and OMX

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 23, 2009) - PivotLink, the leading provider of business intelligence (BI) solutions delivered via Software as a Service (SaaS), and OrderMotion, a leading provider of visual order management solutions for mid-market online merchants and direct response marketers, today announced a unique on-demand business analysis solution to help online retailers utilize their data to boost revenues and reduce operating costs this holiday season and throughout the year.

OrderMotion is integrating PivotLink's market-leading SaaS BI solution with OMX, its industrial-strength order management platform that processes over $1 billion in commerce annually. The combined solution connects PivotLink's secure, collaborative reports and dashboards with OMX to optimize the entire order life cycle, from order and payment processing to fulfillment and inventory management, campaign management and customer service. With this additional level of data analysis, OrderMotion's customers gain real-time insight into their business to monitor its performance and effectively manage operations, marketing and merchandising.

The combined PivotLink and OMX solution helps retailers:

--  Monitor sales trends for demand forecasting
--  Measure the lifetime value of customers and continuity customers
--  Determine what continuity plans are working and why
--  Increase sales of the most profitable items by developing new cross-
    sell and up-sell opportunities
--  Roll out custom promotions targeting key segments of their customer
    base
--  Identify issues with returns that were previously undetected
--  Reduce costs by shaving excess inventory from warehouses and canceling
    unnecessary purchase orders
--  Optimize inventory levels by spreading seasonal purchases more evenly
    

"PivotLink is the SaaS BI platform of choice for the world's leading retailers who are using our solution to analyze massive volumes of data, improve the customer experience and collaborate with suppliers to increase profitability," said Dyke Hensen, chief marketing officer at PivotLink. "Partnering with OrderMotion delivers a new level of visibility and control in the cloud with an order management analytics solution that is easy to use and extremely cost-effective."

"Our customers needed accurate, up-to-date reports and dashboards to show how their business is really performing," said Wendy LaHaye, vice president of product and professional services for OrderMotion. "By providing self-service access, PivotLink empowers them to do their own analysis and learn more about the underlying data. This is an enormous leap forward in driving measurable business value by allowing them to immediately detect and correct issues, seize opportunities and become more competitive."

PivotLink's on-demand reporting and analysis solution powers more than 1,300,000 ad hoc reports for over 15,000 business users each month, offering OrderMotion customers additional performance, flexibility and simplicity to make decisions in less time at a dramatically lower cost than traditional on-premise systems.
