With over 120 employees and aggressive international growth plans, Osprey Packs needed the right reporting tool to adapt to their shifting business landscape. The growing manufacturing company had an increasingly mobile salesforce and was fielding a high volume of reporting requests every day. Jason Strickland, Director of Information Services, started looking for an analytics and business intelligence solution to give employees the actionable data they needed from anywhere. He searched for a solution that married OLAP cubes and Excel as a foundation, was easy to consume, worked with the company’s ERP solution, Dynamics NAV, and could be tailored to be customer facing—and found Jet Analytics.
After implementing Jet, Osprey Packs’ employees immediately discovered the benefits of self-service analytics and are experiencing tremendous success—wherever they may be. Pre-built cubes helped the company get ahead with an initial implementation time of under two hours. Since implementing mobile and web-based dashboards, salespeople can now view critical KPIs using Jet Analytics’ performance tiles, helping them leverage new opportunities and ideas. According to Jason, the best part about Jet Analytics and the Jet Hub mobile dashboards is its simplicity—both in terms of implementation and ongoing usage. Ease of use translates into higher user adoption, which is a win for a company on a growth trajectory like Osprey Packs.
“The requirements document was easy to understand, the team was great, and the support team is one of our favorites to work with, period.”
