Birst Partners with Acuvate Software to Broaden Adoption of Cloud BI in the United Kingdom

San Francisco, CA, – 

Birst, the global leader in Cloud BI, and Acuvate Software, an Information Technology solutions firm, announced a partnership to bring new levels of agility, flexibility and affordability to midsize and enterprise organizations in the United Kingdom. Acuvate will focus its efforts on helping companies in the pharmaceutical, FMCG and manufacturing industries leverage business intelligence (BI) to make more-informed decisions that have an impact on growth and revenue. By delivering Birst’s agile, cloud-based business intelligence platform to customers, Acuvate will enable business users to solve real problems fast without the cost, complexity, and long deployment times commonly associated with traditional, on-premise BI solutions.

Coupled with the benefits of agile and flexible deployment options, Birst provides a complete end-to-end solution incorporating all of the components of an enterprise BI suite at a fraction of the cost of legacy BI platforms. Acuvate partnered with Birst because it is quick to deploy, easy to use, and delivers significant business value for all users, offering big data capabilities, predictive analytics, and mobile BI for easy access to reports and interactive dashboards. Moreover, Birst offers pre-built integrations with salesforce.com and other cloud-based applications for advanced analytics across multiple data sources, allowing companies to gain increased insight into their customers and sales pipeline.

“While Acuvate customers range in size from small to enterprise organizations, each requires a BI platform that includes agile features with rich visualization capabilities. Further, as more companies turn to the cloud for flexible business solutions, we are seeing an increase in demand for a cloud-based BI platform as well. Cloud-based BI is more often preferred by clients in SMB segments and analytics areas where third-party data sources, such as IMS and AC Nielsen, are involved. This partnership with Birst will enable Acuvate to meet these requirements more efficiently, as well as expand the coverage of our BI portfolio,” said Sandeep Goel, CEO, Acuvate Software.

“This partnership allows Birst and Acuvate to deliver robust Cloud BI to customers in the UK. Now business users can gain increased insight into their business and increase the speed with which decisions can be made throughout the organization. With Birst, Acuvate’s customers will have the ability to easily create new dashboards and reports that not only span multiple data sources, but can be accessed across the organization, providing a comprehensive view of the business and enable companies to realize increased ROI unlike ever before,” said Sharon Gordon, Vice President of Birst Alliances and Technology Partnerships. “We’re pleased to welcome Acuvate to the Birst partner ecosystem.”
