Databeacon cures sales reporting ailments for the Harvard Drug Group

Web reporting and data analysis solution cuts an estimated 700 plus employee hours per year

OTTAWA, ON, Canada, August 23, 2004 -- Databeacon Inc., a developer of Web reporting and data analysis software, today announced it has been selected by the Harvard Drug Group, a secondary brand wholesaler and generic drug and consumer products distributor, to provide robust sales reporting and data analysis capabilities. This win is a result of Databeacon partner Subject, Wills & Company. To date, the Databeacon implementation has already helped the Harvard Drug Group significantly reduce the time needed to develop daily and month-end sales and management reports.

With three products lines and three operating warehouses located across the country, the Harvard Drug Group needed to replace its outdated Cognos system, which provided limited data access and could not meet the company's growing demands. The Harvard Drug Group chose Databeacon software for its ease of use, Web-based functionality, and affordable licensing structure.

Now, instead of spending numerous hours to manually input data, the management team can develop daily sales reports in under 30 minutes and monthly reports within an hour. Additionally, using Databeacon software, the Harvard Drug Group has reduced an estimated 700 plus hours of manual data entry per year, enabling employees to focus on more strategic activities.

"With Databeacon we can slice, dice and deliver our sales data in any way, based on what each individual wants," said Debbie Larsen, Director of Sales Operations for the Harvard Drug Group. "If we need to see the data in a whole new way, there's no waiting or going back to IT, we just do it ourselves."

The features of Databeacon software ease of use, fast deployment, implementation speed and low cost of ownership are designed for mid-market organizations like the Harvard Drug Group, whose needs are not met by the often complex and expensive products offered by many of its competitors.

"Many companies struggle with ineffective data analysis tools that are difficult to use and expensive to maintain," said Andy Coutts, President and CEO of Databeacon. "Our relationship with the Harvard Drug Group is a testament to Databeacon's ability to provide mid-market organizations with simple, comprehensive, and affordable Web reporting and data analysis functionality that can positively impact business performance."
