WALTHAM, Mass., Aug. 26, 2008 -- Oco, Inc., a leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of business intelligence (BI) and data integration solutions, announced today that Beckman Coulter Inc (NYSE: BEC), a leading developer and manufacturer of laboratory testing instruments and supplies, has selected Oco’s business intelligence solution to provide advanced reporting and analytics.

“We selected Oco because of its unique ability to rapidly deploy its solution,” said Craig Cole, Global Strategic Operations Director for Beckman Coulter. “Another important factor was Oco’s ability to integrate data from multiple systems and produce focused reports to understand and drive performance improvement across multiple dimensions of our Services business.”

Because the modules allow users to drill down to a granular level of detail, the company can easily see root causes of issues and identify areas for improvement.”

Data integration across multiple enterprise-wide solutions, insightful reports and analytics, and the low-impact SaaS model were key selection criteria for Beckman Coulter. To capture and host the data, Oco’s business intelligence solution extracts data from multiple sources, then organizes it into an intelligent data schema, and drives analytics-based reporting, all in a matter of weeks. Oco’s intuitive Web interface encourages rapid adoption and widespread use of the new solution across multiple geographies.
