SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2009) - Birst, the leading provider of on-demand business intelligence and analytics, today announced a "Quick Switch" program for existing LucidEra customers to transition their analytics requirements to Birst.

The Quick Switch Program offers a 25% discount off of Birst subscription services for LucidEra customers, who will be losing their LucidEra service at the end of June 2009 due to business closure. Customers can easily replicate their LucidEra reports in Birst and take advantage of this offer if they act by August 1, 2009. Customers will also receive priority implementation services.

"Customers picked LucidEra for good reasons -- the speed of deployment and the focus on information," said Brad Peters, CEO of Birst. "Birst can offer that same capability, while also expanding the horizons of their implementation to include other data sources and more custom objects."

A AppExchange certified partner, Birst features Salesforce Connect, a data connector that allows customers to easily analyze their Salesforce CRM data, including custom objects, within Birst. Since the solution also allows business users to analyze data from other systems, such as marketing, finance, and operations, along with their Salesforce CRM data, Birst provides a uniquely comprehensive view of a customer's business.

Birst is also hosting a Quick Switch Program webinar on Wednesday, June 24th, for LucidEra customers. For more information on signing up for this webinar, go to
