Summary: DataSelf showed once again why it remains the mid-market leader—starting with its new offer: money-back, subscription BI.         

San Jose, CA, September 23, 2008 – With all the noise in the mid-market about business intelligence, it’s tough for any vendor to win attention. Yet DataSelf showed once again why it remains the mid-market leader—starting with its new offer: money-back, subscription BI.

“We’ve been developing BI solutions in the mid-market for more than 10 years. The maturity of our business and technology makes a huge difference in this tough economy,” said DataSelf CEO Joni Girardi, still exhilarated by his product’s success the week before.

In the latest sign from the market , DataSelf’s breakout session at Sage Summit 2008 —called “Take the Donut Challenge: Write a Report Faster Than You Can Eat a Donut”—attracted record attendance. Also, in pre-event emails from Sage, DataSelf’s link had more clicks than any but “see my agenda.”

At the show, DataSelf introduced pay-as-you-go BI. “This has made our must-have business intelligence solution affordable for many, many more companies,” said Girardi.

The new pricing reduces the initial investment to four figures—and it adds a money-back guarantee. “Actually, the new offer makes total sense for everyone”, said Girardi. “From experience, we know that about 80% of our clients have made DataSelf BI a critical part of their decision-making.  They stick around for a long time.”

The money-back guarantee eliminates new prospects’ concerns about “will this investment be worth it?”, he explains. “We expect to make the same amount of money from each client over 5 years while we reach a lot more clients.”

At least so far, Summit has proven Girardi correct. He reports that DataSelf acquired an unprecedented number of new clients at the event. The market seems to agree with him that his offer is “a no brainer.”

Three benefits make DataSelf BI stand out: ease of use and maintenance; ready-made fit from a huge set of pre-defined and easily modified reports and key performance indicators; and a solid, reliable and widely supported BI solution based on Microsoft technology.

DataSelf arrived at this year’s Sage Summit with many significant new features to DataSelf BI:

  • More than doubled the number of predefined reports and KPIs: from 550 last year to more than 1,200 now.
  • New modules: customer loyalty, budgeting, cash flow, sales commission, inventory replenishment planning, balance sheet and income statement.
  • Integration of Microsoft Office PerformancePoint Server and SharePoint as optional features.
  • All standard BI functions are included, including  KPIs, dashboards, forecasting, budgeting, operational reporting, financial reporting, commissions, analytics, data mining, data warehousing, OLAP cubes, SQL mirroring, balanced scorecards and business activity monitoring.

DataSelf BI comes ready out of the box to read data from Sage Accpac, SageCRM, Sage SalesLogix, Sage MAS 90, Sage MAS 200, Sage MAS 500, Sage Pro, Sage PFW, Microsoft Dynamics and Everest Software
