European Business Intelligence (BI) consultancy and procurement specialist, Xoomworks, has signed a reseller agreement with global BI and analytics software vendor, Yellowfin.
The agreement will see the London-headquartered consultancy make Yellowfin’s easy-to-use BI solution, and associated training and implementation services, available to its customers throughout the UK, Europe and South Africa.
Previously a dedicated SAP BusinessObjects consultancy, Director of BI, Nicolas Henry, said that Xoomworks was looking to offer its clients a “no nonsense” approach to BI capable of delivering world-class features while supporting pervasive deployments.
“We were looking to partner with a vendor with a more agile and innovative approach to deliver affordable, yet powerful BI solutions,” said Henry. “In Yellowfin we found a partner that mirrors our passion for BI, is easy to do business with, and is totally focused on customer success. Yellowfin’s simple all-inclusive license model keeps us and our clients happy.”
Principal BI Consultant for Xoomworks, Tom Kornfeld, pinpointed Yellowfin’s technical capabilities, especially the single-integrated nature of the BI platform, as critical to the partnership decision.
“We are particularly impressed with Yellowfin’s fully Web-based BI solution, in conjunction with its ease and speed of implementation,” said Kornfeld. “Yellowfin offers a total self-service BI platform that delivers much more than just basic reporting to end users. Not only is Yellowfin highly intuitive, it also incorporates market leading features, such as its suite of Collaborative BI capabilities, which take decision-making to the next level and ensure a great user experience.”
“Yellowfin offers Big Data integration and slick looking data visualizations,” said Xoomworks Senior Pre-Sales Consultant, Phil Gevaux. “Combined with the fact that its Mobile BI functionality means all content developed is automatically available on any mobile device or platform, Yellowfin was an obvious choice.”
Speaking about the partnership, Yellowfin General Manager for EMEA, Daniel Shaw-Dennis, said that Xoomworks’ breadth of experience in delivering first-rate BI implementations across Europe would assist Yellowfin to grow its presence throughout the region.
“Xoomworks in-depth BI and cross-industry experience – paired with a desire to deliver innovative, agile and cost-effective BI solutions – has helped their clients throughout Europe to achieve their strategic BI goals,” said Shaw-Dennis. “I’m confident that this same experience and commitment to BI innovation will make the Yellowfin – Xoomworks partnership highly successful.”
