Power Systems Research Boosts Business Intelligence Performance With Information Builders

Global Authority on Engine Industry Research Selects WebFOCUS to Power Its BI

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 6, 2008) - Power Systems Research, a global market research and consulting company specializing in the power products industry, was looking for a cost-effective solution to expand its customer offerings and drive its internal business intelligence. The company has chosen WebFOCUS by Information Builders, the independent leader in production business intelligence (BI) systems.

Power Systems Research has been leading the way in meeting the information needs of the engine and engine component industries since 1976, establishing itself as the authoritative source of market information for the world's leading engine, vehicle, equipment, and component manufacturers. As the power products industry has grown, companies have faced diminishing margins and increased competition, making the demand for reliable, timely information more important than ever.

"We wanted to make our existing systems more powerful, both for internal operations and our customers," said George Zirnhelt, CEO of Power Systems. "We looked at other BI vendors, but found them very expensive. WebFOCUS gives us a way to meet all our needs and get up and running fast. It's very cost-effective and prepares us for the future."

"We're always happy to see a company whose business is information choose WebFOCUS," said Gerald Cohen, CEO of Information Builders. "Power Systems customers count on them for the best information, made available in the most accessible and timely way. Information is what gives their customers a competitive edge, and WebFOCUS, provides that insight and edge."
