Press Release: Global business intelligence (BI) software firm Phocas Software has ranked on top of its competitors in 13 categories and scored outstanding results in 26 others in its two peer groups ad-hoc reporting and visual discovery in the latest findings from the world’s largest survey of business intelligence software users.

The BARC BI 2014 Survey findings, released this week, ranked Phocas on top in key areas in the visual discovery peer group including:

  • Business benefits – such as increased employee satisfaction and better business decision making
  • Mobile BI use – how many sites use Mobile BI with their business intelligence tool
  • Cloud BI – access their data from a secured internet environment
  • Project Length – how long it takes to implement the product
  • Performance Satisfaction – top ranked Visual Discovery Vendor in performance satisfaction
  • Recommendation – reflecting satisfied users willing to endorse the product to their peers

“Our strong performance in BARC BI 2014 demonstrates that Phocas is an innovative business intelligence software solution which continues to evolve and set the standard”, Phocas Co- Founder Myles Glashier said.

“Our aim is to provide a simple BI tool that allows our customers to increase their profits, uncover new sales opportunities and make data driven business decisions. Our results in BARC BI 2014 are testament to the fact Phocas is returning excellent value to our clients”.

Phocas Software’s Mobile Business Intelligence tool was particularly successful, leading the field in both the ad-hoc reporting and visual discovery categories.

“We decided in 2012 to focus on creating an innovative and accessible mobile BI solution. We were quick to respond to the emergence of tablets in the marketplace and these results are indicative of our dedication to create a high performing mobile BI tool”, Glashier said.

The BARC BI 2014 survey was completed by users of 34 business intelligence software tools including customers of Tableau and QlikView.

BARC’s research found that “Phocas customers rate the tool very highly across a number of categories in The BI Survey 14, and are willing to recommend it even more frequently than users of rival data discovery products such as Tableau and QlikView”.
