Birst Business Analytics Boosts Benefit of Salesforce.com for United Allergy Services

Birst Provides Comprehensive View of Company Performance with Combined Data from Salesforce.com and Other Key Applications

San Francisco, CA,
December 19, 2012 -

Birst Inc., the leading provider of agile business analytics, today announced that United Allergy Services (UAS)RM will use Birst’s industry-leading business intelligence (BI) solution to combine and analyze data from Salesforce.com and other key applications. Leveraging the resulting, comprehensive view of its performance, UAS will be able to make more-informed decisions and increase the efficiency of its inventory management.

UAS empowers physicians and health systems to deliver safe and effective allergy testing and customized immunotherapy services. Due to its extensive use of Salesforce.com, UAS needed an analytics solution that could combine information from Salesforce.com with marketing, operations, finance, and human resources (HR) data housed in other applications. UAS selected Birst because it quickly and easily integrates with Salesforce.com. The integration provides benefits such as a pre-built dimensional model and report content, as well as enterprise-class BI functionality with the security and reliability UAS requires as a healthcare provider. Moreover, Birst will enable UAS to create a broad view of company performance by combining information from Salesforce.com with data from other applications, as well as spreadsheets and other types of documents.

“Our associates at Salesforce.com endorsed Birst because it not only fully integrates with their application, but also provides the comprehensive functionality we need,” said Gilbert Garza, Director of Technology Services, United Allergy Services. “Birst is going to bring together our data to give us a better look at the big picture—and what it means for our business.”

With faster, easier access to the meaningful reporting and analysis provided by Birst, UAS expects to greatly decrease time spent on reporting, while increasing the efficiency of its inventory management. In addition, UAS will leverage information provided by Birst to more extensively tailor the services it provides to physicians and health systems, and make more-informed decisions across the organization.

“Today, more than 100,000 companies rely on Salesforce.com to track and manage sales, service, marketing, and other activities,” said Brad Peters, CEO of Birst. “Birst taps into the resulting goldmine of information, combining it with data from other applications to generate actionable insight that leads to improved business results.”
