Leading multimedia conglomerate uses Style Scope to create KPI dashboards for top executives
Online PR News – 28-June-2011 – – Piscataway, NJ - InetSoft Technology (www.inetsoft.com), an innovator in data mashup driven dashboard and reporting solutions, announced that Grupo Multimedios, one of the largest media and entertainment companies in Mexico, has selected InetSoft’s Style Scope in order to create sophisticated enterprise data visualizations that summarize sales and operations data for top executives.
For several years, Multimedios had struggled to create executive performance management dashboards using spreadsheets, pivot tables, and other BI tools. Although the dashboards they created reflected the KPI's that needed to be shown, they were visually cluttered with lots of numbers, making it difficult for the end-users to effectively understand and manipulate the data. Finally, this past year, the company began looking into new BI tools that would be both easier to use and visually appealing, and it chose InetSoft.
“One of the advantages of this tool is that we started using it from the very beginning without major changes in the extracted data. Using Style Scope from InetSoft gave us the ability to provide a graphical representation of the key data to top management right ‘out-of-the-box’ and move from static tables of numbers to charts and graphics that are much easier to understand” said Sergio Riojas, Chief Technology Officer at Grupo Multimedios.
“Before the use of Style Scope, it took us months to build KPI dashboards that were simple enough to manage by end-users; now in a couple of days we can customize several graphic views, and even the users can build their own reports without IT intervention. With InetSoft tools, we’ve been able to create consolidated sales figures very easy and quickly,” said Riojas.
Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer at InetSoft was quick to point out how Style Scope’s visual analysis and self-service end-user capabilities are a perfect blend for organizations like Multimedios that seek to improve the speed and ease at which they are able make smart decisions based on the data at hand.
“Style Scope was designed under the guiding principal of ‘agile BI.’ One meaning of agility that our customers’ value relates to speed of information access. The goal is that users experience no delay in getting the information they need because it’s right at their fingertips, no matter where the data is stored. When coupled with powerful visual analysis tools, this leads to decision making that’s based on the most current data available – something every organization strives for,” said Flaherty.
