DataCert announces legal business intelligence tool; DataCert delivers AIMS analytics for ad-hoc reporting and data analysis

HOUSTON, TX, Jan. 31, 2005--DataCert, Inc., the leading provider of electronic invoicing and legal spend management solutions, today announced the release of its new legal business intelligence solution, AIMS Analytics 1.0. Designed specifically for customers with complex and ad hoc reporting needs, AIMS Analytics allows DataCert AIMS customers to generate ad hoc reports and in-depth data analysis, using data that already exists within AIMS, without the need for sophisticated database or programming skills.

AIMS Analytics includes best-in-class pre-built legal spend analysis reports and views. It also offers a pre-defined set of report columns and rows from which users can build their own reports. Together, the pre-defined data and pre-built reports allow users to look deep into all invoice and matter data collected by AIMS in order to create "actionable knowledge" from which to optimize corporate legal spend. Legal departments no longer need to rely on programmers and IT staff to construct complex reports only to have the data delivered incorrectly or outdated. With AIMS Analytics "drag and drop" reporting model, ad hoc reporting can be accomplished with minimal technical expertise and training.

AIMS Analytics 1.0 is constructed using BusinessObjects(TM) advanced reporting framework and is intended for those AIMS users that have invested in that infrastructure. Future versions will extend this capability to other reporting engines.

DataCert also offers extensions to the pre-defined reports and business intelligence package through customizations. AIMS Analytics can also be joined to other existing databases and reporting infrastructures to combine AIMS data with other data sources, like matter management and accounts payable, to generate even more complex and in-depth legal business intelligence across the enterprise or across the legal department.

"AIMS Analytics generates up-to-date spending and trend analysis so corporate attorneys can get an in-depth look at how they are spending and managing their budgets," commented John Gilman, director, Product Management, DataCert. "Corporate legal departments can, for example, now analyze their own legal spend in various currencies, across multiple geographies and time periods to better track their legal spend around the globe; all without the assistance of corporate IT."

AIMS Analytics includes:

-- Pre-defined BusinessObjects(TM) Universe from which to "drag and drop" information

-- A set of base legal business intelligence reports specifically designed as a starter kit for advanced reporting needs

-- Documentation

-- Optional support and upgrades

-- Customizations on request
