arcplan launches dynaSight SMB business intelligence software for small and midsize businesses

Smaller Businesses Now Gain the Competitive Advantages of a Customizable Business Intelligence Solution Once Only Available to Larger Companies

WAYNE, Pa., Sept. 28, 2004 -- arcplan, Inc., a business intelligence (BI) software provider, announced the availability of dynaSight SMB 4.0 for small and midsize businesses, providing many of the benefits of its flagship dynaSight product at an affordable price to growing businesses historically restricted by limited budgets and IT resources.

arcplan's dynaSight SMB software, a continuation of its inSight product line, bridges the gap between off-the-shelf applications and in-house programming efforts with its rapid application development environment. This object-oriented analytic development platform enables companies of any size to quickly and easily build and maintain custom BI solutions for improved reporting and analysis of data in support of strategic and tactical decision making.

"dynaSight SMB allows smaller companies with limited budgets the ability to build and maintain custom-built BI solutions without the overhead and hefty IT budget and staff associated with conventional programming," Brian King, arcplan's president and chief operation officer, said.

He continued, "Such tailored applications can more strategically support a company's business processes in every business function including financials, customer campaign monitoring, regulatory compliance management, strategic forecasting and planning, or risk management."

Key dynaSight SMB software benefits include:

-- Rapid Application Development: An object-oriented, drag-and-drop development environment provides rapid design of custom analytic applications for implementations one-third faster than industry average.

-- Simplified Maintenance: Customers enhance their applications in response to evolving business needs in less than half the time indicated per industry average.

-- Entry-level Price Point: The SMB edition offers the same high quality breed of arcplan's analytic development platform, but at an entry-level price point.

-- Advanced Visualization: Stylish and easy-to-read graphics, tables, gauges and charts enhance visualization and comprehension of complex data.

-- Real-time Predictive Analysis: Sophisticated write-back capabilities let customers perform real-time forecasting and scenario-based predictive analysis.

-- Complete Integration: Integration directly into the IT infrastructure regardless of operating system or data sources standardizes reporting across the enterprise and enables future changes, protecting a company's investment in dynaSight SMB and other BI products.

Typical price for the entry-level software begins just under 10,000 USD/Euro. dynaSight SMB is fully upgradeable to arcplan's flagship dynaSight product, which features multiple data source connectivity and Web deployment.

dynaSight SMB provides the benefits of customization, content personalization, risk reduction and quick turnaround, making it a smart choice for companies such as restaurants, car dealerships or real estate offices or any other company looking to expand or merge operations.

"We're closing the gap between spreadsheets, which are error prone by nature, and an enterprise BI solution, which enhances internal controls while increasing transparency and insight into the health of any business," Jim Burke, arcplan vice president of business development, said. "This opens the door to companies ready to take their business to the next level either for financial or competitive reasons."
