Phocas Announces Worldwide Launch of Phocas Xpress

o Latest browser-based software offers companies a secure, easy access BI interface

Oxford, UK - Phocas, the global provider of simple, intuitive Business Intelligence software (BI), today launched Phocas Xpress, a browser-based mobile version of its Phocas Professional suite.

Phocas Xpress can be accessed from any PC or mobile device anywhere and at anytime. Installed as a standalone solution or as an add-on to the Phocas Professional suite, Phocas Xpress meets the needs of busy executives and employees who need rapid access to pre-defined BI reports, favourites, alerts and dashboards without having to rely on IT support.

Commenting on the new offering Paul Magee, managing director, Phocas, said "Following on from the success of the full Phocas Professional tool, we recognised a need for a customisable, portable BI toolset for users who, for example, spent a lot of time travelling or working from home. As well as deployment across the enterprise, Phocas Xpress can be rolled out to a company's supplier base and even their customers, to allow for transparent data during collaboration."

As Magee explains, one of the key benefits of Phocas Xpress lies in its analysis capabilities. "Phocas Xpress contains predefined reports and dashboards but this is just the starting point of its value. It also gives users the opportunity to perform lateral analysis, all within the browser window." In addition Phocas Xpress also offers an optional "Reporting Services" module to generate powerful dashboards and KPI indicators.

To ensure that senior executives are able to tightly manage accessibility, the Management Studio tool allows full control over what data employees, suppliers or customers have access to.

Phocas Xpress harnesses Microsoft SQL server and Microsoft IIS server technology to offer password-protected security. This offers peace of mind for employees needing to take advantage of mobile, browser-based software. Like Phocas Professional, it directly integrates into the full range of Dynamics products, and also supports a wide range of ERP and CRM solutions from other leading vendors.

Phocas Xpress is shipping immediately and is available direct as well as through Phocas's US and European channel partners.

Over 600 companies and 6000 users worldwide are using Phocas BI solutions, spanning a wide range of vertical markets including manufacturing, electrical, automotive, plumbing, building, industrial and medical.
