TelNet Worldwide Deploys Birst to Enable More Effective Collaboration and Decision-MakingBirst's SaaS BI Solution to Increase TelNet Worldwide Productivity Through Self-Service Reporting and Analysis (October 18, 2011)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/18/11 -- Birst, a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service solutions for business intelligence (SaaS BI) and analytics, today announced that TelNet Worldwide (TelNet) will be using Birst to help employees collaborate more effectively and make more-informed decisions. Birst's online dashboards will also help to increase IT department productivity by enabling employees to run their own reports.
"With the launch of TelNet's Hosted PBX solution, OfficeEdge Complete, we're encouraging our customers to consider whether a SaaS solution makes sense for their business -- and, at the same time, making that decision for ourselves," said Rick Riordan, TelNet's finance director. "With Birst, we don't have to tie up valuable IT resources to manage reporting software upgrades or run reports. Our team has immediate access to the information they need to make better decisions for our business. That means we'll be able to maximize our focus on our primary mission -- delivering communications services that help companies perform better."
TelNet offers a wide range of voice, data, Internet, and ancillary communications services that provide small- to medium-sized businesses with the advantages commonly available to much larger enterprises, including its own cloud-based SaaS solutions.
Using Birst, TelNet will track and analyze a wide range of information related to sales, marketing, finance, and operations. TelNet expects that, as its employees gain faster, easier access to vital information, they will be able to collaborate and make decisions more efficiently and effectively.
Following its evaluation of a variety of on-premise and SaaS BI solutions, TelNet selected Birst because of its affordability and wide range of easy-to-use functionality. Birst's scalability was another key factor, given that TelNet is poised for rapid growth. After completing its initial Birst deployment, TelNet plans to extend its implementation to include data from the company's billing, call center, and services provisioning applications.
"As more and more technologies move into the cloud, companies are saving time and resources by selecting hosted solutions," said Brad Peters, CEO of Birst. "However, it takes a certain kind of hosted solution to actually boost the bottom line. At Birst, we help companies improve their overall results by combining affordability and scalability with the exceptionally valuable business insight that can only be gained through enterprise-class reporting and analysis."
