Leading Analyst Report Scores(i) Longview Solutions #1 for Overall Ease of Use Based on User Survey

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 7, 2011) - Longview Solutions, a leading provider of corporate performance management (CPM) and tax reporting software, announced today that it has received the #1 score* for overall ease of use among CPM vendors in a recent report published by Gartner entitled "CPM Suites User Survey 2011: Customers Rate Their Corporate Performance Management Vendors(1)".

Based on end user responses collected as part of the annual Gartner Magic Quadrant for CPM Suites, the report evaluated vendors across four key areas of customer satisfaction: Overall Satisfaction; Implementation of their CPM system; Sales and Support; and Business Benefits.

Megavendors not the best option

The vendors that participated in the Survey can be categorized into four key groups: mega-vendors; pure-play vendors; Software-as-a-Service (SaaS); and mid-sized customer vendors. The report recommends that organizations that are evaluating CPM vendors not "automatically assume that buying a CPM solution from a megavendor is the best or only choice. Also evaluate pure-play suppliers, and pick the vendor that best suits your needs for functionality, business benefits and total cost of ownership."

"Longview prides itself on the exceptional customer service that we provide to our client base," said John Power, President of Longview Solutions. "Therefore it is very rewarding to receive such high ratings from our customers across all the categories evaluated in the report. At Longview, we believe that customer satisfaction is critical to the success of any client initiative, and as this report illustrates, is one of our true differentiators."
