Metrix has wisely chosen a BI delivery strategy that offers customers with a tool that can be easily integrated with other application data sources such as ERP, HR/Payroll, and CRM.

This strategy also positions customers to take advantage of the full breath of BI features offered both today and in the future from the evolving maturity of BI and the vision of Business Objects" says Steve Heimburger, B*Smart Vice President of Sales and Business Development.
