Birst Inc., the leader in Cloud BI, and Intellitek Systems, a provider of customized technology solutions for small and midmarket companies, have partnered to deliver custom business intelligence and enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to midmarket organizations. Typical ERP solutions with native BI integrations are often beyond the price range that mid-sized organizations can afford. Together, Birst and Intellitek Systems provide "Intelligent ERP" to companies looking for a flexible, easy to use solution that fits their budget and unique business needs.

Intellitek Systems provides custom ERP solutions, providing organizations complete visibility across inventory and order management, human resources, accounting, customer relationship management (CRM), and more. However, without built-in BI and reporting capabilities, users are unable to tap into the business value of their data across all divisions within the company. This partnership allows Intellitek Systems to deliver Birst's enterprise-caliber Cloud BI as part of its custom-built Intelligent ERP offering, streamlining processes and information across a customer's entire organization. In addition, Intellitek Systems provides complete technical support so business users can easily access reports through Birst's powerful dashboard solution, delivering immediate business value.

"Intellitek Systems is honored to partner with Birst, a leader in the BI market. Many of our customers have limited technical resources, but desire the competitive advantage that an ERP solution, combined with powerful cloud BI, can provide. Together, we are delivering a customized, flexible solution that enables customers to make smarter decisions based on a complete view across their entire organization," said Matthew May, President, Intellitek Systems. "Our partnership with Birst enables Intellitek Systems the ability to maximize our commitment to deliver 'Intelligent ERP' to small and midmarket companies."

"Birst and Intellitek Systems simplify ERP for the business user so that the business user can quickly and easily create reports to analyze their business and market, and use that insight to make smarter decisions across the company. Ease of use, flexibility and the power behind the platform are the keys to success with this partnership -- it is a tremendous competitive differentiator for midmarket organizations, and it is available at a significantly reduced costs compared to typical ERP solutions," said Sharon Gordon, Vice President of Birst Alliances and Technology Partners.
