Cincom Systems Introduces NEW SmartInsight™ for Generating Business User-centric Compliance and Quality Reporting

Debuts at Ausbiotech 2009 Conference, 27-30 October, 2009 Melbourne Exhibition Centre

Sydney, Australia – August 27, 2009 -- Worldwide software provider, Cincom Systems (, announced today the global availability of  the SmartInsight™ Report Writer product. SmartInsight enables business users to quickly gain visibility into all their compliance and quality management data by allowing them to develop, format, and control the content, and publish the reports to the right users. It extends the built-in reporting functionality of Cincom’s SmartSolve® platform by allowing system administrators and business analyst users to easily create professional, custom log reports that they can save and reuse.

SmartInsight is the next key capability in Cincom’s Enterprise Compliance and Quality Management (ECQM) solutions that provide the ability to design, tailor, and use ECQM’s flagship product platform solution, SmartSolve. SmartInsight is a 100-percent webbased tool designed to put reporting flexibility directly into the hands of business users. This new solution eliminates the need for IT to develop simple to complex reports with tools to which typically only IT has access.

SmartInsight allows for reports to be designed easily with no technical or special programming skills required. The solution provides extreme reporting flexibility for creating any type of log reports, including consolidated or summary reports, in one simple drag-and-drop mode, and in a point-and-click style. SmartInsight enables user to create new log reports, with runtime parameters and embedded graphs, and its built-in publishing capabilities make it convenient to share these reports with other users across the enterprise. These reports could be configured to run from the application’s portal page, from any of the transactional screens, within a transactional screen visualizing the required data, and also from the reports repository.

“We talk to our customers and one of their key needs is improved visibility on their operations. Cincom ECQMS recognizes that the power of any system is to allow its customer users to retrieve, report and analyze data,” said Greg Mills, Regional Director, Cincom Systems, ANZ. “SmartInsight is designed from the ground up to allow both users and business analysts to retrieve, report, and analyze data in a snap. This will subsequently enhance communication among departments, leading to better coordinated activities and quicker response to change within the organization.”

SmartInsight’s ultimate reporting flexibility includes a simple-to-use, intuitive report designer that allows users to define report content fields and format elements, including report titles, report and group footers, columns and charts. With more than 100 built-in expression functions, the user can easily tailor the report information to be presented.

“Earlier this year, Cincom introduced another business intelligence tool, SmartPulse™, which allows business users to easily create new analytics and dashboards, and keep a pulse point on their business processes,” Mills said. “Likewise, companies using SmartInsight will reinforce a collaborative work environment with increased reporting visibility to support their decision making, demonstrate why certain decisions were made, and ultimately improve the company’s overall performance driven by fact-based decision making.

“Combining SmartPulse and SmartInsight, we now have fulfilled our Analytics vision, and we look forward to assisting our customers to measure their processes against key industry metrics and benchmarks,” Mills added.

Cincom’s compliance and quality business intelligence software will be featured at booth number 160 during the Australian’s Biotechnology Conference 2009 ( show at Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 27 – 30 October 2009.
