FREIBURG, Germany, September 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
"Spreadsheet-driven corporate controlling and liquidity planning" eventually led to the collapse of a major drugstore chain, reported German news weekly Der Spiegel, based on the corporation's insolvency report. Thankfully, there is no need for corporations to be chained to such old-fashioned tools. Rather, controlling, planning, analysis, and reporting can be brought up to speed with easy-to-understand software, as the latest version of the popular Jedox Suite proves.
Jedox Suite is a new software solution for business intelligence (BI) and performance management, uniting all relevant functions in a comprehensive platform that can be customized to fit individual client requirements. The kicker is that its user interface is already intuitively familiar to Excel® spreadsheet users. This functionality enables business users to autonomously model reports, analysis, and planning-true to the slogan of "self-service BI," which is increasingly in demand.
Controlling is a classic application arena for Jedox 4, since sales, revenue, results planning, and other departments require continuous cost and efficiency analysis. For instance, users can use the Jedox 4 Suite for valid project controlling-ensuring that project goals, deadlines, and budgets remain on track. Other uses for Jedox 4 are production controlling, as well as complex cost and production simulation. "Just take new orders or customized client requests that need to be addressed quickly. Jedox 4 delivers the facts we need to plan production precisely and safely. Now we can adapt production planning in rolling cycles," explained Dr. Hartmut Trier, managing director and owner of Scherer & Trier, a well-known supplier for the automotive industry-and Jedox customer.
In its newly released Version 4, the Jedox solution features a re-tooled user interface. What's more, Jedox 4-more powerful than ever before and now with improved encoding technology--is even easier to integrate with the existing corporate IT landscape. Featuring improved relational reporting Excel "drill-through" functionality to access detailed data, Jedox 4 also features increased performance and optimized storage capability for large and extremely large data models. Said Kristian Raue, Chairman of the Board of Jedox AG, "This functionality lets us adapt to increasing data size, even in mid-size companies."
Satisfied pilot users of Jedox Suite Version 4 include Airbus Operations GmbH, Berliner Vivantes-Kliniken, and Universitätsmedizin Göttingen.
