UEVision Chooses Birst for Financial and Project Analysis

On-Demand Business Intelligence Solution Helps UEVision to Better Budget, Scope, and Forecast Consulting Projects

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 25, 2009) - UEVision has deployed Birst™ as its solution for project forecasting, management, and accounting analysis. UEVision is a leading consultancy on user experience and user interface design, working with software companies, manufacturers, and publishers.

"Like many consulting firms, our biggest challenge is getting visibility into how we are spending time and money on projects, and how resources are being allocated across projects," said Sarah Kling, CEO of UEVision. "UEVision does a lot of fixed price design work, so it's critical for us to track back productivity, budget, hours spent, and how well we performed on a project."

Based in San Francisco, UEVision has worked on user experience projects for companies like Oracle, Fujitsu, Blue Shield, and Visa, leveraging their unique three-phase design process. As its successes grew and its number of projects expanded, managing the projects and establishing appropriate project bids became more and more challenging. Managing analysis through Excel, Quickbooks, and multiple other systems became onerous and time consuming; getting useful reports required hours of manual analysis.

"We needed an analytical solution that was fast to deploy, easy to use, and had the power that we needed, at a price that provided real value," said Kling. "Birst has delivered exactly what we needed. We now have quick visibility into key areas of our business, tracking projects, time, productivity, and budget information together. So now we know answers to questions like, how quickly are we delivering for clients? How well are we delivering? Are we on budget? Birst has been a huge win for us."

UEVision was able to deploy an analytics solution that connected information from a combination of systems and Excel files in a matter of weeks, far faster than an equivalent solution from a traditional business intelligence vendor.

"UEVision is the perfect example of how growing companies can quickly require sophisticated analytics," said Brad Peters, CEO of Birst. "With Birst, UEVision was able to quickly get a solution that provided them with valuable, actionable analysis in just a fraction of the time, allowing them to focus on their main business -- delivering great customer experiences."
