Tampa, FL – April 14, 2009 -- Pilgrim Software, Inc., a world-leading provider of Enterprise Compliance and Quality Management (ECQM) software solutions, today announced the global availability of its SmartPulse™ business intelligence product. SmartPulse enables business users to drill down into underlying data generated by the Pilgrim applications and supporting external systems, access key metrics, and keep a “pulse point” on their quality and compliance KPIs through performance measurement.
SmartPulse is a powerful, yet extremely simple-to-use analysis tool that gives business users the ability to analyze, report and export existing data efficiently and effectively, supporting business intelligence for maximum operation and profitability.
“Leading manufacturing companies need access to vital quality data to attain a 360° view of their quality and compliance pulse across the organization. Organizations that rely on reports, find that static reports alone are not sufficient for effective measurement, and do not always accelerate decision-making,” explained Atulya Risal, Pilgrim Software’s Chief Technology Officer. “Using this intuitive, user-friendly tool, and its prebuilt data cubes generated from transactional data, enhances customers’ ability to quickly analyze, providing an environment for rapid decision-making.”
SmartPulse provides unique tools for decision makers to explore large quantities of data through a dynamic view of business conditions. “Simple data navigation, powerful calculation and visualization tools are the core components that make SmartPulse the best at answering the question, ‘Why?’ when it comes to business change,” Risal said.
With a user-friendly interface, SmartPulse allows business users to easily create new dashboards that consist of one or more worksheets. Each worksheet can have the required analytical chart and the supporting data. End-users that have access to those pre-created dashboards can visualize the data and easily either drill into or collapse the data. This leads to overall enhanced communication among departments, better coordinated activities, and quicker response to change within the organization.
“Companies using SmartPulse will benefit from a collaborative work environment that is now supported with strong analytics to support their decision making, eliminate ‘guesswork’ on why certain decisions were made, and ultimately improve the company’s overall performance driven by fact-based decision making,” Risal said.
