Jaspersoft’s Online Store Expands with New Web-Based Training Programs and BI Utilities
New offerings help lower costs while driving increased value for both Professional and Community customers
SAN FRANCISCO, November 13, 2008 — JasperSoft Corporation, the market leader in open source business intelligence (BI), today announced the launch of its new web-based training programs and a variety of new utilities available now in the Jaspersoft Store. The online store has become a popular destination for BI customers with more than 9,000 transactions during the last 3 years.
The Jaspersoft Store is the definitive destination for both Professional and Community customers for a variety of software products and utilities, as well as documentation, support and training. Jaspersoft’s eCommerce strategy is a natural progression of its business model, which is designed to deliver a consistent and valuable service and support experience for all of its customers. As a result, thousands of organizations are taking advantage of this self-service model to meet their specific needs.
“Expanding the Jaspersoft Store is a natural step towards delivering the most valuable package of BI software and support in the industry,” said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft. “This is a direct reflection of what is a top priority for Jaspersoft: providing high value to both Community and Professional Edition customers alike.”
Jaspersoft’s two new web-based training courses give users step-by-step instruction at their own pace with video demonstrations and audio narration on how to design, develop and distribute sophisticated reports using Jaspersoft’s iReport design tool. Classroom courses taught by Jaspersoft experts with experience in cross-industry implementation are also available for customers looking to accelerate productivity.
In addition to providing self-service access to goods and services for Jaspersoft’s customers and community, the Store will also allow partners to deliver additional value to their customers. For example, Openbravo has embedded JasperReports in its products and recommends iReport to its customers to enhance reports in its ERP solution. The company will now provide one-click navigation for its customers to the new web-based training in the Jaspersoft Store.
“Giving our customers direct access to online training is a win-win for Openbravo,” said Josep Mitja, COO of Openbravo. “Many more of our customers will now be able to learn how to take advantage of Jaspersoft’s advanced reporting capabilities, which in turn will create more value from the data in their Openbravo solutions.”
For the first time, Jaspersoft is also introducing a suite of software utilities designed to increase the productivity of both Professional and Community customers:
- Jaspersoft ODBO Connect™, a driver which allows users of Microsoft Excel® to connect and interact with JasperAnalysis;
- JasperReports Template Exporter™, an add-on library for JasperReports which allows column sorting, section folding, and pop-up windows;
- JasperReports Column Manager™, an add-on library for JasperReports, which hides or shows columns based on user input or other parameters.
The Jaspersoft Store also offers a variety of advanced documentation including the Definitive Guide series and the Ultimate Guide series. Incident-based support packs for the Jaspersoft Community Edition products are also available. For information and access to any of these offerings, please visit the Jaspersoft Store.
