    CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Business managers struggling to
 wring maximum value from their data and sports franchises trying to boost
 ticket sales and improve team performance will now make more informed
 decisions on the fly thanks to StratBridge. The company's flagship product,
 StratBridge.net, is a Web-based instant analytics tool that transforms the
 Internet browser and Microsoft Office into a visual platform that displays
 vital information in intuitive, familiar formats.
     StratBridge.net streamlines the drudge work of compiling reports that
 provide up-to-the-minute information for professional sports teams,
 institutional investors, consultants, business executives, and anyone else
 that relies on data. It links the browser and Microsoft Office applications to
 a variety of data at the click of a button, enabling users to perform
 exhaustive research and analysis to understand complex data patterns.
     "The analysis of data is one of our most critical activities, and yet it
 is one of the most difficult to undertake given time and resource
 constraints," said Mike Stoneking, the partner in charge of Innovative
 Solutions and Market Intelligence at Deloitte. "StratBridge software not only
 conducts sophisticated data analysis quickly, but it also presents the
 information in an easily digestible format so we can understand its
 fundamental value with just a couple of mouse clicks. That kind of diligence
 on demand is invaluable for firms like ours whose success depends on being
 nimble."
     StratBridge has a fast-growing customer base featuring widely recognized
 organizations including Deloitte, Hewlett-Packard, Boston Celtics, McDonalds,
 Georgia Pacific, and Forrester Research. That's because StratBridge.net
 seamlessly extracts and analyzes data from internal and external sources,
 regardless of format, and presents it in familiar Microsoft applications.
 Companies no longer lose money due to uninformed decisions or missed
 opportunities because with StratBridge.net, they understand all of the
 information contained within their data. "Each home game represents an ever-
 changing set of data, and because ticket sales are so dynamic, we need to see
 trends in real time," said Daryl Morey, senior vice president of operations
 and information for the Celtics. "StratBridge gathers the data we need and
 puts it into graphical formats we can easily act upon. It lets us clearly see
 the status of sales by section, guiding our sales and marketing tactics that
 fill more seats and increase revenue."
 
     Research and analysis on demand
     Until now, decision makers analyzing everything from stock performance to
 customer trends and market shifts have been forced to act on static one-time
 snapshots that are out of date as soon as they've been printed.
 StratBridge.net minimizes the toil and guesswork by enabling business managers
 to customize how they want to view their data and analysis in Word, Excel or
 PowerPoint, as well as Adobe .PDF format, without waiting for programmers to
 generate stale reports.
     Because StratBridge.net is a Web-based platform, companies don't face the
 expense and time of buying and installing hardware and software. "StratBridge
 has capitalized on the .NET platform to provide a service that corporations
 around the world sorely need," said Sanjiv Parikh of Microsoft's Emerging
 Business Team. "A lightweight, easy-to-use, but powerful data analytics tool
 like StratBridge.net puts easily actionable information in frontline business
 managers' hands."
     StratBridge.net deploys in hours or days -- not months or years -- so
 companies can begin analyzing data quickly. Its intuitive interface eliminates
 the need for companies to spend tens of thousands of dollars on extensive
 training courses that usually only benefit programmers. Additionally,
 StratBridge.net ensures client data is secure by employing all of the standard
 encryption protocols to keep data safe. It also uses secure username and
 password logins to ensure only authorized users can access client data.
     "For decades, business managers have not had a good handle on what the
 data is really telling them," said StratBridge Founder and CEO Matthew
 Marolda. "So they've had to hedge their guesses on what they think the data
 means or sometimes wait weeks for third parties to compile one-time analyses
 that can't support dynamic business decisions. StratBridge.net lets
 corporations see the big picture of their data quickly and easily and take
 advantage of that information."
