Joint Oco and SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand solution to provide new insights to help IT staffing leader increase customer service and competitive advantage.
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) November 2, 2010
Oco, Inc., the leading innovator of Software-as-a-Service business intelligence (SaaS BI) solutions, announced today that IT staffing and workforce solutions firm Apex Systems, Inc., has chosen to implement its next-generation BI architecture using Oco SaaS BI applications integrated with SAP® BusinessObjectsÃ¢“¢ BI OnDemand.
“Apex Systems has good operational reporting to help us track how we’ve performed,” said Rob Waddell, SVP and CIO of Apex Systems, Inc. “But we want to go from good to great, and that requires advanced analytic applications that give users the ability to drill into the data to find new ways for us to deliver better workforce solutions to our customers.”
Apex Systems’ new BI solution is based on Oco’s patented on-demand data integration, data warehousing and analytics application Software-as-a-Service (SaaS BI). Oco integrates Apex Systems data from multiple transactional systems, including a SaaS-based applicant tracking system, a customer relationship management (CRM) system and their ERP application. Information is presented to users via rich, interactive, web-based Oco dashboards. Ad-hoc reporting is enabled via integration between Oco and SAP BusinessObjects BI OnDemand.
In IT staffing, matching candidates to new job specs more precisely, and faster than the competition, is the key to successful customer relationship building. Insights provided by Oco’s analytic applications will help Apex achieve that and contribute to faster growth, greater profitability and increased customer satisfaction. Fast implementation and compatibility with best of breed BI reporting tools were important factors in the decision to partner with Oco. “Agility is important to Apex. We move fast and constantly seek competitive advantage,” added Waddell. “We felt that Oco was the right fit for us to support our next phase of growth.”
