Extended Results, a provider of personalised business intelligence offerings, has released Extended Outlook, which provides business managers and executives with access to corporate dashboards, scorecards and reports inside the application.
The company clams that the new offering provides affordable individual user licensing; functionality addressing the BI needs of casual users and executives; and instant access to dashboards, reporting portals and SharePoint documents.
In addition, Extended Outlook also offers support for multiple ribbon bars within Microsoft Outlook; user interface leveraging the Microsoft Office ribbon bar functionality; and simple installation with support for Microsoft 2003/07 and 2010, the company said.
Patrick Husting, president of Extended Results, said: “Our extensive experience in developing corporate dashboards and scorecards led us to the realisation that most business managers and executives never fully utilise these reporting solutions, because they fail to take into consideration the way that executives work.
“Our executives never use the corporate dashboard solution; Extended Outlook gives us immediate access to our dashboards right within our Microsoft Outlook – the productivity increase and ease of use has made a huge impact on our organisation.”
