The company’s clients needed more powerful scheduled, ad-hoc and dashboard-style reporting.

Solution

Results

• Faster report creation: Creating reports for clients previously took weeks, and now, a day or two.
• Self-Service BI: Clients can now create their own ad-hoc reports and dashboards.
• Easy, low-cost deployment: GBST saved tens of thousands of dollars using interns for integration instead of senior staff.
• Lower total cost of ownership: Fast implementation and ongoing report development keep IT costs down.
