Aspect Consulting and arcplan Form Channel Partnership To Bring BI Solutions to Data Warehousing Challenges

  • Aspect Client BI Project Came To Halt Using arcplan Competitor: Now Aspect Developers Have BI Front End Solution That Works

Langenfeld, Germany, and Berwyn, PA – June 10, 2010 – arcplan, an independent business intelligence solution provider, and Aspect Consulting, Inc. provider of data warehousing and data management consulting services, have announced their channel partnership.

Aspect specializes in customized application development for clients across multiple industries including pharmaceutical, life sciences, construction, manufacturing, direct marketing, healthcare, retail and financial services. The partnership gives Aspect a development tool for BI-based, full blown applications that solve tough ERP challenges.

"We were stuck in the mud on one implementation using an arcplan competitor, so I was looking for a solution. I found it with arcplan,” said John Abrams, CEO and founder of Aspect, referring to a pharmaceutical industry client. “We’ll be using arcplan Enterprise in future installations. More economical and faster, arcplan is now part of my toolkit for clients that need another option.”

What makes arcplan’s Enterprise different than ERP front ends from companies such as Cognos and Business Objects is that Enterprise is more of a development tool, according to Abrams. “In general, it’s much easier to implement. It’s got so much flexibility. It’s thin and light,” he said.

Abrams explained that with arcplan Enterprise, developers have a screen that is more like an application, with design implementation and technical features. His developers are now fully trained on arcplan Enterprise in just weeks.

For its Enterprise product, arcplan was rated among the top three BI tools in terms of platform integration by Gartner, Inc. in a December, 2009 analysis report. today arcplan delivers its three software products as components of an integrated development platform “In order to be effective and help companies improve performance, any BI solution needs to be a flexible development tool,” said Detlef Kamps, CEO of arcplan. “That mission has driven our approach to development, and we are excited to be working with Aspect.”

arcplan’s three products are arcplan Enterprise, arcplan Edge, a budgeting, planning, and forecasting tool, and arcplan Excel Analytics.
