New York, NY

Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity and integration solutions, today announced that it has received a Vendor Excellence Award for Best Midmarket Solution (Software) at the [BE] Midmarket CIO Spring Forum. The award recognizes the company’s comprehensive WebFOCUS BI and analytics platform.

The Vendor Excellence Awards honor solutions and technologies that help midmarket companies enhance processes, products, and services while improving the bottom line. WebFOCUS offers midmarket companies the ability to solve market complexities with flexible BI deployments and self-service options that bring the power of BI and analytics to a broader base of business users.

“To compete with larger organizations, midmarket companies must be able to not only access and glean value from their data, but also effectively share and action resulting insights across the organization,” said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO of Information Builders. “WebFOCUS is designed with the power and versatility to address a diverse range of BI and analytics needs for this midmarket group. This recognition from the [BE] Midmarket CIO Forum speaks to our ongoing commitment to helping our midmarket customers improve data management and utilization across the board.”

WebFOCUS delivers rich, consumable, interactive information via a wide option of features, including self-service tools, mobile BI, InfoApps™, dynamic report distribution and more. WebFOCUS also integrates seamlessly with Information Builders’ iWay integration and information integrity solutions, allowing companies to easily integrate and cleanse data from disparate sources to ensure more accurate insight.

Numerous midmarket organizations have benefitted from the breadth and depth of WebFOCUS’ capabilities. For example, OFS Brands, a leading provider of contract furniture, used WebFOCUS to create reports and dashboards that empower its mobile sales team and enable users across the enterprise to improve productivity and service. Scott Franzel, senior vice president of IT for OFS comments: “Information Builders’ WebFOCUS delivered the power and flexibility we needed to address the needs of team members across geographies and disciplines. The platform has enabled OFS to make better, smarter use of our data to drive the progress needed to grow, compete, and deliver market-leading products and services for our customers.”
