Community Bank Chooses Panorama Software BI Suite for Intuitive Web Interface and Tight Microsoft Integration
TORONTO, ON (October 19, 2010)– Panorama Software, a global leader in proactive Business Intelligence (BI) solutions, today announced APS Bank has selected Panorama NovaView Enterprise Suite to provide its management actionable insights into corporate performance trends.
APS Bank was established in 1910 to inculcate savings habits for the working class. Since then, APS has evolved into a community bank focused on personal banking services with multiple locations across the Maltese Islands.
To improve overall business performance, APS Bank recognized that a dynamic enterprise business intelligence solution could help improve decision making across the organization. Following an extensive search, APS Bank selected Microsoft platform and Panorama NovaView as its corporate BI infrastructure based on its ease of use, tight integration with Microsoft Office / SharePoint, and the ability to provide web-based access to data analysis and reporting throughout the enterprise.
APS Bank plans to integrate NovaView across its management layer. Introducing the solution to its entire organization will streamline overall management operation by providing greater transparency for all important KPI’s (key performance indicators) and significantly improving response time to business opportunities. With Panorama NovaView, management and other information workers will be able to drill down and analyze terabytes of data in real time through a set of intuitive business intelligence tools and simple, web-based access.
“After evaluating other BI solutions, Panorama NovaView was clearly the best fit for our business needs because of its intuitive web interface and self-service BI capabilities,” said Luciano Anastasi, Head of Information Technology Divisionof APS Bank. “Branch managers are thrilled to have multi-level views of business performance, as well as the ability to easily drill into data for deep, efficient analysis.”
APS Bank will leverage NovaView’s tight integration with Microsoft Office and SharePoint to maintain efficiency with existing Microsoft applications that executives are already using in their day to day work. All managers will be able to continue using SharePoint as the corporate information center, without experiencing any limitations on advanced analysis, web-based reporting or dashboarding.
