IQNtelligence Data Xplorer and Visual Xplorer Raise the Bar for Data Analysis
and Real-Time Reporting in Services Procurement Software
DENVER, March 30, 2011 – IQNavigator Inc. has launched enhanced data analysis and real-time reporting capabilities in the newly-released version of its leading services procurement and extended workforce management software. Version 10.4, which is now available to all of IQNavigator’s clients globally, includes the Data Xplorer data analysis tool and the Visual Xplorer executive dashboard as the centerpieces of its IQNtelligence suite.
- IQNtelligence Data Xplorer – Provides in-depth analysis of a client’s entire program in an easy-to-use interface that offers more data and detail than ever previously available in “self serve” analysis and visualization tools. IQNtelligence Data Xplorer enables drag-and-drop report creation, trend analyses, in-application pivot tables, drill down, dynamic graph creation and much more.
- IQNtelligence Visual Xplorer – Provides executive users such as spend owners and category managers with a customized, dashboard view of the information and analyses that they define as the most important to them. With full drag and drop capabilities, the IQNtelligence Visual Xplorer provides an at-a-glance overview of key information derived from IQNtelligence Data Xplorer, enabling executives and analysts to get key reports and data visualization on a single screen.
“IQNavigator is putting a major focus on innovation this year in business intelligence, especially in the areas of data analysis and real-time reporting, and IQNtelligence Data Xplorer and Visual Xplorer are major milestones in that effort. These tools get the right information into users hands with unparalleled analysis and real-time capabilities,” said John F. Martin, chief operating officer of IQNavigator. “Not only do we provide the deepest and broadest data sets to our clients, but these new tools provide a simple-yet-powerful way to access, review, analyze and visualize complex trends and insights in their program, such as metrics about non-employee headcount and spend, to help our clients make smarter, better informed business decisions.”
IQNtelligence Data Xplorer and Visual Xplorer provide details of global spend and headcount data across a client’s entire program through instantaneous access to data across dozens of dimensions such as regions, locations, departments, financial cost codes, job titles, spend categories and suppliers. These new tools enable dynamic analysis and visualization, which help companies make more informed business decisions about their global services procurement programs.
“Procured services and contingent labor remain a large portion of business spending in which companies historically lack proper visibility. As companies look more strategically at these spending areas in 2011, real-time intelligence, analytics and data reporting are critical requirements to proactively budget, plan and manage global services procurement,” said Christopher Dwyer, research analyst at the Aberdeen Group. “Solutions like IQNavigator’s IQNtelligence Data Xplorer and Visual Xplorer are vital capabilities that enterprises around the world can leverage to deliver true cost control and drive visibility into services procurement. The next decade of contingent workforce management will be built on real-time data analytics and business intelligence strategies.”
