LogicBay Taps Information Builders for Detailed BI Analytics Across the Partner Channel

PRM Provider Selects WebFOCUS to Deliver High-Performance BI and Analytics Capabilities for Clients

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 23, 2014) - Information Builders, a leader in business intelligence (BI) and analytics, information integrity, and integration solutions, today announced that LogicBay, a leading provider of cloud-based Partner Relationship Management (PRM) solutions, has chosen its WebFOCUS BI platform to provide integrated data visualizations, BI dashboards, analytics, and ad hoc reporting for current and future users of the LogicBay Performance Center platform.

LogicBay, founded in 2003, is dedicated to helping clients build, scale, and optimize partner sales and service channels. With its proprietary PRM application, the company enables its customers to boost channel partners' productivity and revenue while simultaneously reducing the costs associated with supporting the channel. The LogicBay Performance Center delivers a customized collaboration partner portal that can be easily accessed anywhere, anytime. With version 9.0 of Performance Center expected later this year, LogicBay recognized the need to enhance the existing built-in BI and analytics features to improve reporting capabilities for users.

LogicBay chose Information Builders' WebFOCUS platform to incorporate more robust BI, analytics, and data visualization options into its offering, as well as reduce development and maintenance demands for reporting solutions. WebFOCUS, which LogicBay is deploying in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) capacity, was selected over other competitive offerings for its power, flexibility, and mobile capabilities, as well as the dedicated Information Builders support team. The solution integrates seamlessly with Performance Center's technology and enables LogicBay to both construct built-in reporting dashboards and enable self-service reporting for customers. The advanced BI features provided by WebFOCUS will enhance user experience for LogicBay's customers as well as streamline processes for the company and its clientele.

"High-performing BI and analytics capabilities are critical functions for companies working to boost productivity and revenue across the channel," said John Panaccione, chief executive officer, LogicBay. "Organizations that adopt PRM technology to improve channel partner performance need accurate, timely, and detailed insight into how well their efforts are working and where improvements can be made. WebFOCUS from Information Builders enables us to move from standard reporting to a superior level of advanced, customized BI and real-time visualizations for our customers. The combination of WebFOCUS BI technology and our Performance Center technology creates an enhanced PRM capability that is unmatched in our industry."

"Sophisticated reporting capabilities are a critical component of any solution designed to help companies improve productivity and increase revenue," said Gerald Cohen, president and CEO, Information Builders. "With advanced BI, analytics, and customized dashboards at their fingertips, executives can easily measure the effectiveness of their initiatives and justify investments or adapt efforts where needed. We're pleased to help LogicBay deliver that advanced functionality and enhanced user experience to their customers."
