Cites flexible pricing, data connectivity, and ease of use as factors in selection
October 11, 2021 - Piscataway, NJ - InetSoft Technology, a pioneer in data intelligence, analytics, and reporting, announced that vehicle appraisal service Black Book has adopted InetSoft's Style Scope, to provide their employees with dashboards and automated reporting.
Founded in 1955, Black Book provides the tools necessary to make intelligent auto purchasing decisions. Their valuations draw from the most precise, VIN-specific, actionable data in the market, updated daily from more sources than anyone else. Their precise data touches every part of the automotive industry, helping to accurately measure and reduce business risk. They listen to business objectives to provide flexible solutions that increase profit and reduce risks in the decision-making process.
Before selecting InetSoft, Black Book was using several popular data visualization providers, but found that their pricing was only geared towards large projects, making small deployments for internal operational use not worth the cost. InetSoft's solution first attracted their attention with its flexible pricing structure, along with its data connectivity and cloud friendliness, but what has really made a difference is the self-service capabilities it provides to business users.
"With Style Scope, I can build dashboards for our nontechnical people and have them make tweaks and save their own bookmarked version that meets their needs," explains Mike Compton, CTO at Black Book. "InetSoft's tools make it easier for us to get programmers out of the mix."
"InetSoft"s flexibility and ease of use make it a good fit for any organizational use case," expresses Mark Flaherty, Chief Marketing Officer at InetSoft. "By removing pricing and skill level as barriers, InetSoft enables organizations of all kinds to reap the benefits of data intelligence."
InetSoft's Style Scope is a data intelligence platform. At its foundation is a powerful data mashup engine that enables fast and flexible transformation of data from disparate sources, which can either supplement or obviate a data warehouse solution. At the development level, a unified interface allows for easy and advanced data manipulation and design of interactive dashboards, and visual analyses. At the consumption level, self-service is maximized for a range of users, from casual business or consumer-type browsers, to power users and data scientists. As a cloud-ready, fully scalable enterprise-grade platform with granular security, multi-tenancy support, and multiple integration points, it serves both enterprises and solution providers. In either environment, ease of deployment and ease of use are chief development principles that help lower the time investment and total cost of ownership - and make the solution attractive to organizations of any size, with or without BI expertise.
