Gerber Technology has introduced a new Business Intelligence (BI) platform designed to help users of its YuniquePLM tool reduce time and costs through more informed decision making.

The new solution, called YuniqueBI provides improved visibility and reporting throughout the product lifecycle management process, Gerber says.

Data originating from ERP and other third-party business systems is consolidated into visual dashboards and reports. The web-based reports and graphs can also be accessed via a laptop, smartphone or other mobile device.

“While the implementation of business intelligence has improved in recent years, information is still often under-utilized,” explains Daniel Pak, chief software architect for Gerber Technology’s Software Solutions division.

“Because our software stores critical information required by our customers and closely interacts with other transactional systems, it was a natural progression to provide the key BI platform our clients need.

“In today’s volatile business climate, a proactive stance based on immediate, accurate and intelligent information is the only truly successful management method for an organisation.”
