Acrede Chooses Jaspersoft’s Platform To Provide Real Time HR & Payroll Reporting and Analytics in the Cloud

London, UK & San Francisco, USA – October 1st 2013 - Jaspersoft, the intelligence inside apps and business processes, today announced that Acrede HR & Payroll Solutions Limited, the global payroll company, has chosen to deploy Jaspersoft inside its cloud-based Acrede Touch application suite. Acrede required an embeddable business intelligence (BI) solution to allow its customers to produce reports drawn from its HR & Payroll database to better understand their business processes.

Acrede’s cloud technology removes the challenges that organisations face by centralising global workforce management, payroll processing and payroll reporting. The Acrede Touch cloud application suite is simple to implement, highly configurable and can be accessed from any device, anywhere in the world, securely in real-time. Jaspersoft’s Embedded BI has made Acrede’s SaaS application and their users more intelligent, raising the opportunity for operational applications to deliver greater end user engagement and value.

“HR & Payroll involves a wealth of important information that can shed light on some of the more necessary business processes and the costs that are incurred. Jaspersoft’s embeddable BI solution provides our clients with the ability to quickly generate and report on any information from within our application,” said Karen Paterson, CEO at Acrede.

Neil Barry, Manager Northern Europe at Jaspersoft said, “We are very pleased that Acrede has chosen Jaspersoft to compliment their innovative Payroll solution with new self service reporting and analysis capabilities for business users. It’s a great example of how analytics delivered in the context of an application can drive significant value and save money at the same time.”

Acrede originally deployed Jaspersoft’s open source Community Edition reporting functionality when it was built three years ago, but has now upgraded to the full BI Suite, to provide a more sophisticated reporting tool to match the development of the rest of Touch application suite. Touch Reports, the reporting area of Acrede’s solution, is a major Unique Selling Proposition (USP) when it comes to centralising and simplifying global HR & Payroll.
