PeopleMatter Release

Leading provider of integrated human resources software uses Jaspersoft to provide intelligence inside applications developed on GoGrid cloud platform

Charleston, SC–May 2, 2013 – Jaspersoft, the intelligence inside applications and business processes, today announced that PeopleMatter, which is the largest provider of comprehensive HR software designed for hourly workforces, uses Jaspersoft to power the analytics and reporting components for its applications built on the GoGrid cloud platform. PeopleMatter selected Jaspersoft for the ease and speed with which it can be deployed in cloud applications, via its standards-based nature, as well as its competitive price point.

Since the company uses GoGrid's cloud-based platform, it was of paramount importance that they select a business intelligence solution that could extract, transform and load (ETL) data in a cloud environment. After evaluating several solutions, PeopleMatter determined that Jaspersoft was the best fit for their ETL needs. The company cited Jaspersoft's ability to offer on-demand access to business analytics from any browser (including mobile), provide multi-tenant support to run complex applications and to integrate data from any source, either in the cloud or on-premise as particularly beneficial to their use case. PeopleMatter is currently using Jaspersoft Pro, JasperReports Server Enterprise and Jaspersoft ETL to power its embedded analytics.

"Jaspersoft has made the reporting process extremely simple for us to manage," said Michael Wright, PeopleMatter Vice President of Technology. "They are really ahead of the market in terms of their support for Big Data and cloud-based analytics and reporting. This, in turn, provides key benefits to both our customers and internal users. We are easily able to embed analytics, reporting and dashboard tools into our applications, which allows end users to make more informed, data-driven business decisions."

"There has been a considerable rise in cloud-based application development, which has created a corresponding opportunity for Jaspersoft to emerge as the tool of choice for developers looking to embed intelligence inside applications and processes," said Karl Van den Bergh, Jaspersoft Vice President of Product and Alliances. "We have already seen tremendous growth as a result of our presence on cloud platforms like GoGrid's, and PeopleMatter is a strong testament to this fact. They are able to break through the challenges of analyzing and presenting data in an easy-to-use and affordable manner with Jaspersoft."

"Reporting and analytics have become critically important to companies for building and running data-driven applications," said Dave Smith, GoGrid VP Global Sales. "Luckily, Jaspersoft makes those capabilities available as a cloud offering via the GoGrid Exchange so mutual customers like PeopleMatter can easily deploy this robust reporting solution."
