Business intelligence software provider InetSoft offers free shopping tool
Piscataway, NJ - November 20, 2009 - InetSoft Technology (www.inetsoft.com), an innovator in dashboard, reporting and analysis solutions, today announced the availability of a free interactive dashboard for bargain hunters to use to plan their holiday shopping. Shoppers can go to http://www.inetsoft.com/info/black_friday_deals/ to use the visualization-driven analysis tool to filter through thousands of deals to narrow down what interests them.
Designed to be intuitive enough to use without any instructions, shoppers can do things like check off retailers they are interested in and quickly browse their specials. Or, if there is an item or category of particular interest, checking that item quickly filters across all retailers for those offering that product. Sort by price, and in a few seconds, the best deal is found. Compared to poring over dozens of newspaper circulars, this visual analysis tool offers to save a great deal of time and effort.
“We introduced this free interactive dashboard for the first time last year,” commented Mark Flaherty, Vice President of Marketing at InetSoft, “and we were surprised by the response. Fortunately, it is running on our enterprise-class business intelligence software platform which supports clustering and load balancing so we’re able to scale up to meet demand. We hope others enjoy using this consumer-oriented application of ‘business intelligence’ technology as much as we do. The application certainly fits well: to use point-and-click filtering methods and visualization techniques to sift through an overload of data, and make quicker, better decisions as a result.”
The Black Friday deals interactive dashboard has been deployed using Visualize Free, a recently introduced free edition of Style Intelligence, InetSoft’s business intelligence software application for dashboards, reporting, and visual analysis. Visualize Free permits anyone to upload their own data, such as in a spreadsheet, and quickly create useful visualizations and interactive dashboards. Once completed, users have the option to share their visual analysis with others or keep it private. To try Visualize Free, please visit www.visualizefree.com.
