SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand is an intuitive, turnkey business intelligence solution that allows business people with no prior experience to explore, report and share information inside or outside the company. Because it’s on demand, SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand can be acquired and setup in minutes, without a long technology project. It’s available standalone or can integrate with existing on-premise or on-demand investments, delivering improved productivity and greater insight for more informed decision making.
A company experiencing the business benefits of SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand is GENBAND, a Texas-based global supplier of next-generation IP infrastructure that also uses Salesforce.com’s customer relationship management (CRM) solution. Angie Reese, GENBAND’s CRM application manager was looking for a business intelligence solution that would provide GENBAND with greater analytic capabilities and insight about its customers. By adopting SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand, GENBAND has been able to generate powerful reports that can be more easily shared across its organization. The automated report-generation capabilities have saved GENBAND a minimum of eight to 10 hours per week in staff time. It has also been able to improve GENBAND’s sales tracking and customer service capabilities as the company grew rapidly from approximately 400 to 2,200 employees.
It is for these reasons that SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace Award winner.
