LONDON, 4 May, 2004 - Energis, a leading provider of high-value telecoms and internet services, has selected a revolutionary real-time reporting application from corporate performance management (CPM) software vendor IntelligentApps. Energis is expecting improved month end reporting, easier report writing and access to live JD Edwards data when the solution is delivered in April, and these were predominant factors in the selection of IntelligentApps Real Time Reporting.

End users from the Energis finance department will have the comfort of working in a familiar Microsoft Excel environment, whilst having the power of OLAP-style analysis driven against real-time JD Edwards financial data.

Ben Heath, Finance Manager, explained: "We’re constantly looking for ways to improve and enhance the service we provide to our customers; we selected IntelligentApps Real Time Reporting to improve the month end reporting on our JD Edwards data. The IntelligentApps solution reduces the complexity for the users and the biggest attraction of the solution is that the data is delivered directly into Excel and that these reports are real-time from the JD Edwards accounting system. Our accountants can post a transaction and will be able to immediately see the effect. Ultimately it improves our business processes.”

Paul Martin, CEO IntelligentApps commented: “We are delighted that Energis selected IntelligentApps Real Time Reporting to improve its month end reporting. They are amongst a growing band of SAP, Peoplesoft and JD Edwards users who have identified the need for faster reporting and see the benefits of significantly shortened reporting times in a real world scenario.”

The IntelligentApps Real Time Reporting solution, built exclusively in conjunction with Digital Aspects, harnesses powerful and unprecedented real-time analysis against leading ERP solutions from SAP, Peoplesoft and JD Edwards.
