…Hyperion UK Guarantees Transformation of Data into Meaningful Dashboards with new “Dare to Dashboard” offer…

LONDON, UK, 23rdApril, 2004 – UK companies demanding a risk-free way to achieve instant performance improvement got an answer today from Hyperion. The company is offering all businesses the chance to test-drive Hyperion Intelligence at no cost or obligation. Hyperion is guaranteeing it can deliver a customised dashboard in just two business days, using its recently updated query, analysis and reporting software.

“In this business climate, companies are looking for quick results, broad adoption and fast return on investment,” said Nigel Youell, Marketing Director with Hyperion UK and Ireland. “Hyperion business intelligence software is so easy to use, install and maintain that we’re guaranteeing results in two days or less. Companies looking to simplify and consolidate their query, analysis and reporting software can evaluate our new Hyperion business intelligence platform with absolutely no risk.”

Continues Youell: “We realise we are making a bold claim – and 48 hours may not seem much time to set up an entirely new system for database query, analysis and reporting - let alone generate any useful insights from the data. But with the open architecture of Hyperion business intelligence software, its quick installation and ease of use, we will demonstrate that two days is really all companies need. In that time, they’ll see new ways to access, analyse, and understand the information at the heart of their enterprises.”
