BI specialist secures new sales partnerships with European and Asian IT consultancies

Langenfeld, Germany / Berwyn, PA – July 6, 2011 – arcplan, a leading provider of innovative Business Intelligence (BI) and planning solutions, has recruited a number of new international partners in the EMEA and APAC regions to market its flexible and user-friendly BI solutions arcplan Enterprise, arcplan Edge and arcplan Excel Analytics.

In Europe, arcplan has entered into partnerships with consultancies b.telligent and Salt Solutions for the German-speaking market. Both firms have solid technical expertise and many years of experience. b.telligent is a consulting firm in Germany and Switzerland that implements technology solutions in the telecommunications, financial services, retail and insurance industries. The company recently expanded its spectrum of consulting services to include BI and is particularly focused on software solutions for use with SAP. In this area, arcplan excels as the #1 third-party front-end to SAP BW for six consecutive years, as voted by users in BARC's annual The BI Survey.

Salt Solutions, which has offices in Dresden, Düsseldorf, Würzburg and Oberpfaffenhofen in Germany, specializes in IT solutions and system integration for the automotive, logistics and trade industries. Among other services, Salt Solutions is particularly involved in the creation of business-critical solutions based on SAP.

arcplan continues to make great progress in the APAC region as well. Most recently, Akula IT Services of Bangalore, India, opted to join forces with arcplan to bring powerful BI solutions to that market. Akula specializes in business intelligence and performance management solutions and advises companies – predominantly in the manufacturing sector – on business process optimization.

arcplan has also gained a new partner in Indonesia – SAP Indigo. The company, headquartered in the Netherlands, also specializes in consulting for companies using SAP technologies and decided to collaborate based on the strength of arcplan’s leading position in this area and its innovative mobile BI solutions.

In addition, arcplan is currently in intensive talks with potential partners in Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
