Information Builders' WebFOCUS Selected to Meet Erickson Living's Scaling Needs

BI and Analytics Provider Chosen for Comprehensive Suite of Offerings

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Apr 26, 2016) -  Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that Erickson Living has chosen its WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform to deliver a holistic, real-time view of business processes across the company's entire dispersed network.

Erickson Living is a leading developer and manager of retirement communities. Based in Baltimore, Maryland, the company serves 24,000 residents in 18 communities across 10 states. Previously, Erickson Living had been running BI and analytics operations via a siloed reporting system that used Microsoft Excel and the pre-built reporting environments of each of its numerous applications. The company needed a more modern approach and sought to develop a single, integrated solution that would provide a comprehensive view of business operations at any given time.

After evaluating several leading companies, Erickson Living selected Information Builders' WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform to advance management of its entire business. The BI and analytics provider was chosen for the breadth, depth, and cost effectiveness of its offerings as well as its award-winning customer support team. The scalability of WebFOCUS was another key selling point as it supports Erickson Living's continued growth. 

"Erickson Living is dedicated to building and managing industry-leading facilities for the residents of each of our communities," said Jeff Hofstetter, vice president of Enterprise Applications, Erickson Living. "Information Builders' WebFOCUS provides a complete, accurate, real-time view of processes across a myriad of locations, which gives us the insight needed to deliver a consistent, high-quality product and ensure that our communities enjoy first-class services."

Information Builders' WebFOCUS is a comprehensive BI and analytics platform that delivers rich, consumable and interactive information to a wide range of employees, managers, analysts, partners, and customers. The solution is flexible and scalable to meet changing business needs. Its dynamic reporting distribution fully automates the scheduling and delivery of real-time dashboards and its mobile BI and self-service features help make critical business insight accessible for a broad base of end users.

"Information Builders has deep experience in helping our clients address the many challenges that come with managing an extensive, dispersed business network," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. "Gaining an accurate, holistic view of an entire business ecosystem is necessary for organizations to lead their industries, and we're dedicated to equipping our clients with the tools needed to offer that insight. Information Builders is proud to work with Erickson Living, and we look forward to helping them improve business processes and enhance customer service."
