Online PR News – 18-January-2010 – – Piscataway, NJ – InetSoft Technology (www.inetsoft.com), an innovator in dashboard, reporting and analysis solutions, announced the selection of its business intelligence software by Livingston International, a leading North American provider of customs brokerage, transportation and integrated logistics services.
Livingston International chose InetSoft’s Style Report Enterprise to provide Web-based reporting capabilities to its own Web-based suite of applications called Insight.

• Real-time online access to run queries, print reports, and download information needed to manage costs and build customs compliance audit trails
• Creation of accurate and compliant export documents
• Automated customs status updates for shipments in real-time
• Viewing of import document images immediately upon processing
Livingston sought an improved reporting solution that would simplify its clients’ use of the Insight application further in the area of reporting. InetSoft’s reporting software will simplify users’ abilities to run queries, prints reports, and download all the information needed to manage costs and build customs compliance audit trails. Users will also have that information pushed automatically to them on a scheduled basis. Among the new options will be additional formatted reports and automated data file outputs in Excel format.
Chief among the reasons InetSoft’s Style Report Enterprise was selected over the alternatives, were time to market and compatibility with Livingston’s application suite. Livingston required single-sign, Java-based technology, and sophisticated user permission hierarchies.
“We evaluated many reporting vendors and were most impressed at the speed with which the proof of concept could be developed,” stated John White, Senior Director, Information Technology at Livingston. “We found InetSoft to be the best option to meet our business requirements and integrate with our own technology.”
