VIENNA, Va., March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroStrategy® Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that it has added multiple industry apps to its MicroStrategy Mobile App available on the iTunes App Store. MicroStrategy Mobile enables companies to quickly and easily extend graphs, grids, enterprise reports, and information dashboards to the iPad® and iPhone®.
The free, downloadable MicroStrategy Mobile App comes preconfigured with a series of industry apps that demonstrate how companies can manage their businesses from a mobile device. Each new app displays a wide range of data and allows users to easily navigate the data using the native touch gestures that have become a hallmark of mobile apps. The telecommunications, retail, and casino apps were designed and assembled in just a few weeks using MicroStrategy's powerful app platform. The new industry apps include:
Telecommunications Channel App − To support telecommunications companies in improving customer retention and increasing revenue, this app shows how different product and service channels are used by customers and their impact on revenue. The Telecommunications Channel App enables users to analyze and compare the success of multiple customer revenue channels and touchpoints (e.g., web, in-store, call centers) from an iPhone or iPad. Business users can make rapid, analytically-based decisions, whether in meetings, visiting the customer service center, or standing in the store.
Retail Management App − Retailers face immense pressure to balance inventory levels with in-stock positions while maintaining assortments that are relevant and fresh. Buyers and merchandise managers are constantly on-the-go either in team meetings, on a buying trip, or working on-site with vendors. The Retail Management App enables users to accelerate shipments by evaluating top-selling products, make markdown decisions based on seasonal sell-through, cancel shipments for bottom-selling products, and communicate more effectively with vendors.
Casino Management App – The Casino Management App enables casino operators to view the most important metrics pertaining to the operational performance of their properties from an iPad or iPhone. This app is designed for marketing, operations, finance, and game management personnel to analyze valuable data, including financial performance, gaming activity levels and revenues, daily table and slot performance, entertainment and promotions, and lodging operations.

"MicroStrategy's mobile app development platform gives companies the flexibility to build rich applications that reflect the specific needs of the users and the unique culture of the company," said MicroStrategy Chief Operating Officer Sanju Bansal. "Unlike other mobile app platforms that only offer fixed formats and limited options, MicroStrategy's platform allows companies to quickly and easily design customized, high performance mobile apps without writing any code."
