Nowsight Provides AccountMate Clients a Pro-Active and Prescriptive View With Their Business Intelligence (BI) Solution

Nowsight creates tight integration with their Business Analytics to ERP provider AccountMate software. Nowsight couples opinionated analytics with real-time visibility so that management and employees can spend more time making money, gaining efficiencies, and achieving breakthrough results.

Nowsight creates a single source of Business Intelligence data in real time, and emails a dashboard tailored specifically for the individuals receiving it based on their role in the organization. Everyone is operating on the same "sheet of music", coordinating business across the entire organization.

Nowsight eliminates the usual organizational scenario of half, or more, of employees spending 30-50% of their time creating siloed spreadsheets and reports. Stopping these activities unleashes expert resources within the company to create better customer satisfaction for their customers, gain new revenue for the company, and more performance opportunities for everyone on the team.

Nowsight's “always-on” dashboard, text alerts for critical business insights, and daily emails bring together information from across an organization on sales, operations, performance, and ROI that are typically housed in spreadsheets or systems that don't “talk” to each other. The Nowsight dashboard correlates all of this data into one picture across the entire organization, while also enabling the ability to drill-down into specific activities or transactions; everyone can see the aggregate and the particulars.

Nowsight is able to advise and proactively alert whether activities are in-line with specific goals, and compare that across specific periods of time, past periods of time, relative to the target for a specific period of time, and even compare specific employees' best performance or performance-relative-to-peers in an operations or sales environment. An example would be Sarah Salesperson's results throughout the month compared to the monthly goal she set, and compared to the same time last year, and also showing her which quotes she'd need to convert to meet her targeted sales goal for that day as well as her monthly sales goal.

It doesn't stop there. Nowsight goes further with a built-in alert system, making it proactive in its approach. When activity falls above or below thresholds, Nowsight’s alerts let everyone know. Management can course-correct in real-time, instead of waiting for the month-end reporting which is comprised of data that is typically up to two months behind. Instead, Nowsight's real-time view of individuals, groups, divisions, geography, and finances can all be graphically represented. Daily email alerts broadcast to help steer a better course or provide positive recognition. Think of the human power potential you could unleash in your organization if your company management is able to congratulate your sales force or your line operations people in real time, as they hit or exceed their goals.

Each client can take advantage of Nowsight's philosophy of providing proactive and prescriptive view of data as it is happening -- or even before it is happening. Their approach is to engineer a Business Intelligence system the way a company needs to see results and customize it to empower everyone within the organization to be successful. They will work with companies to provide tiered targets, performance metrics, best scores, and customized gauges in place to evaluate the true performance of an organization.

David Dierke, President & CEO of AccountMate, said recently, “I am extremely pleased that we have partnered with Nowsight to bring our resellers and their clients a Business Intelligence solution that will build a data strategy for companies across all of their departments and locations. The power of Nowsight and their staff's high level of understanding of correlating related data will provide the value clients can expect in analyzing their own data and acting on situations quickly. It's an impressive add-on solution for the AccountMate financial system.”

Nowsight’s CEO, Michael Schader is equally excited about the relationship with AccountMate. “Our leading edge Dashboard and Business Intelligence solutions are a perfect fit with the business eco-system of AccountMate, its resellers, and end users. We have a strong track record of helping customers achieve rapid and sustainable results by using existing data in real-time powerful visualizations, intelligent alerts, and personalized, narrative emails showing performance versus goals and budgets.”

Getting results with Nowsight and their integration with AccountMate will provide clients with the information to enable them to monitor and grow their business.

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
