PrecisionPoint Software Launch SharePoint2010 Business Intelligence Solution at Microsoft Dynamics User Group Conference

Business Warehouse for Dynamics AX and Dynamics NAV With SharePoint2010/Office2010 Fulfills Microsoft's Promise of Self-Service Business Intelligence for End-Users

SAN MATEO, CA and LONDON--(Marketwire - October 12, 2010) -  PrecisionPoint Software has chosen the annual AXUG Summit and NAVUG Forum joint conference and expo to launch its advanced Business Intelligence (BI) solution based on Microsoft's latest BI technologies now available as part of SharePoint2010, Office2010 and SQL Server2008r2. The concurrent conferences, organized by Dynamic Communities, Inc., take place in Orlando, FL on October 18 thru 22, 2010.

"We are delighted that PrecisionPoint Software has chosen the AXUG Summit 2010 and NAVUG Forum 2010 annual events to launch this important milestone for Dynamics Business Intelligence," said Andy Hafer, CEO of Dynamic Communities, Inc. which hosts the conference. "The aim of AXUG and NAVUG is to bring Dynamics users together to share their experiences and to learn best practices from industry leaders like Microsoft, PrecisionPoint Software and our other partner members. Business Intelligence and SharePoint are two of the hottest topics at this year's conference and PrecisionPoint will be making a major contribution to both of these subjects."

PrecisionPoint Software is the only Microsoft partner worldwide to offer a Business Intelligence solution which has been Certified by Microsoft for both Microsoft Dynamics AX and Dynamics NAV ERP platforms. Its Business Warehouse product is an off-the-shelf software application solution engineered specifically for Dynamics AX and NAV products. PrecisionPoint has worked closely with Dynamics customers in Europe and North America to evolve its revolutionary technology over the past 8 years. PrecisionPoint Business Warehouse is unique in 3 key ways:

  • Automated data warehouse design and build reducing 2+ years work to less than a week,
  • An integrated data model which reconciles transactions across all key Dynamics ledgers,
  • Advanced validation and monitoring web services which ensure continuous data integrity.

PrecisionPoint is also 100% built on Microsoft BI technologies.

PrecisionPoint Software Founder and President, Dr. Nigel Geary, said, "Dynamics customers already own the world's best BI infrastructure in Microsoft Office2010, SharePoint2010 and SQL Server2008 -- but they struggle to make use of it for real business advantage. Firstly, they are of confused about what BI is and what it can do for their business. Secondly, they can't start using BI until they first transform their Dynamics transactions into a data model that makes sense to ordinary non-technical business users. That data transformation process takes months, or years, even for BI specialists who are hard to find. This is where PrecisionPoint closes the information gap in a matter of hours."

PrecisionPoint is an "Integration Engine" which automates the whole process of creating a data warehouse -- the critical process needed for reliable analytics and management reporting. The result is an integrated, reconciled model of TRUSTED data which is typically operational within a week, including initial user training in Excel and SharePoint. Business users get huge productivity gains through self-service analysis and reporting. They also save days of manual reconciliation effort each month. "I.T. Directors enthuse about PrecisionPoint's ability to get I.T. out of the reporting business by empowering business users to create their own views, reports and dashboards using the tools they already know," adds Nigel Geary, "and the automated support and monitoring means no more sleepless nights for I.T. Directors wondering whether the CEO will get accurate, trusted reports each morning."
