“Together, NetSuite and Birst deliver unmatched value – it is as simple as that. We had a pressing need to get a deep level of detail from our data. Birst allows us to quickly tap into that data, drill down to find out what we need, create solid reporting and manage all of it from one very easy-to-use dashboard,” said Jeff Baldwin, Director of Business Operations at Jive Software. “We started using Birst for its sales analytics, but quickly realized we could leverage it for our financial analytics as well. We are now able to get the insight we need into both sales and financial analytics and ultimately across other various business processes within our organization.”
