ProfitBase Forms Partnership With Solver to Bring Configurable Data Warehouse Software to SMB Market

YORK, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 21, 2007 -- ProfitBase, a technology leader in easy-to-use configurable data warehousing, has entered into a distribution partnership with Solver, Inc. of Los Angeles to bring the ProfitBase 2007 data warehousing product to the small and medium-size business (SMB) market through Microsoft Business Solution (MBS) Partners in North America.

"Solver has very strong ties to the Microsoft Dynamics partner network, has excellent business intelligence and market knowledge and we are both committed to Microsoft technology," said Larry LeBlanc, president of ProfitBase NA Inc. "Because Dynamics customers and partners are a major part of our strategy, Solver is the perfect partner for us. Our products fit nicely together."

ProfitBase 2007 is a configurable data warehousing technology that delivers business analytics, business system connectivity and a rapid-configuration data warehouse tool that significantly reduces time-to-value and empowers information workers with one consolidated view of information for better and faster decisions. ProfitBase 2007 has ready-to-use OLAP business cubes for finance, sales and data source connectors for Microsoft Dynamics GP, NAV and AX, Oracle Financials and many others. As a result, ProfitBase 2007 solutions can be installed and running significantly faster than custom-developed data warehouse solutions.

Based on Microsoft SQL Server 2005, ProfitBase 2007 extracts and consolidates raw data from existing business systems and applies proven business logic to create performance metrics that are presented to information workers with tools like Microsoft Office, Reporting Services, Business Scorecard Manager and ProClarity, and Solver's XL Reporter and Dashboards.

"ProfitBase 2007 is an exciting new data warehousing technology that allows us to fill a major need that Dynamics partners and customers have been requesting," said Nils Rasmussen, co-founder of Solver. "The market wants an affordable and easy way to combine Microsoft Dynamics ERP data with data from other in-house business systems into one enterprise database, and then perform analysis and reporting.

"The hard work in any business intelligence project is getting the data consolidated into a nice, clean data warehouse. ProfitBase 2007 really makes this easy. We can then use front-end tools like Solver's XL Reporter or any of the other Microsoft tools like ProClarity, Reporting Services or Business Scorecard Manager to give information workers nice dashboards and reports. The combination is a great solution."
