Varolii Chooses Birst to Create More Reliable Reporting and Analysis on Its Vast Data Resources

Data-Driven Company to Increase Decision-Maker, IT Efficiency and Effectiveness Using Birst's On-Demand BI Solution

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - January 4, 2011) - Birst, the leading provider of software-as-a-service solutions for business intelligence (SaaS BI) and analytics, today announced that Varolii has selected Birst to provide more reliable reporting and analysis based on vast amounts of data generated by multiple applications. Varolii will also use Birst to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of decision-makers and its IT team by enabling employees to quickly and easily create and modify their own dashboards and reports.

Using Birst, employees in multiple Varolii departments will be able to create their own, flexible reports and dashboards, drilling-down to various levels of detail. Varolii expects employees will be able to make better, faster decisions as a result of having quick access to more consistent, reliable information. Because employees will be able to easily run their own reports, the company also anticipates that IT efficiency and effectiveness will increase as more IT resources are freed to focus on other projects. Varolii will combine into Birst data from Varolii's internal datawarehouse, as well as several other applications.

"Companies without a BI solution frequently spend so much time running reports that they don't have enough time to examine the meaning of those reports. This is because it takes a tremendous amount of time and effort to manually combine information from multiple applications," said Brad Peters, CEO of Birst. "Birst delivers real value by providing powerful, easy-to-use analytics that not only automate the reporting process, but also help organizations better understand the key drivers of their business."
