New Application Adds Mapping and Geo-positioning Perspective to Yield New Insights
ROSENHEIM, Germany & SAN JOSE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 30, 2013 — Cubeware, a leading provider of complete business intelligence software solutions, today announced the addition of LTGeoCoder to its BISTRO business intelligence (BI) applications store. Lutum + Tappert, specialist for innovative mapping and geo-marketing, designed the LTGeoCoder to benefit the retail market, logistics operations and other location-sensitive businesses.
Currently optimized for Germany, LTGeoCoder geo-location and spatial analytics help business executives factor location into business planning decisions. For example, the LTGeoCoder application provides retail companies with the tools necessary to pinpoint the exact location of customer activity, which can be useful for planning where to open new stores. Manufacturers and logistics companies can use geo-location data and maps available through the LTGeoCoder application to plan shipping routes.
BISTRO brings together the best elements of the BI application store – featuring a variety of licensable BI applications tools and code libraries to expedite customized BI deployments. To assemble these components, BISTRO features an active community of solution providers, business partners and developers with proven experience creating and deploying BI solutions.
The LTGeoCoder converts addresses into geo-codes that can be used within a map while acting as a foundation for spatial analytics. With the LTGeoCoder, users of the BISTRO app store will now have the ability to take an address and determine where customers are located, factor shipping routes and integrate location as a key factor in other business decisions – while keeping all geo-location information and addresses secure. To expand the reach of LTGeoCoder, data samples from other regions are welcome and will be tested in collaboration with Lutum + Tappert.
“Thanks to the BISTRO app store, we are now able to deliver the geo-coding capabilities of the LTGeoCoder to a broader audience by expanding our global offering and increasing our customer base among retailers, logistics companies and other customers around the world,” said Ulrike Wagner, Project Consulting & Sales at Lutum + Tappert. “With the LTGeoCoder, location can be easily visualized to help planners develop business plans, route supply chains and use mapping effectively in their strategic plans.”
BISTRO offers tremendous revenue opportunities to companies like Lutum + Tappert by furnishing BI toolkits, code and customized apps that can be licensed by BISTRO partners to assemble specialized solutions for customers. In addition, Cubeware offers attractive programs to recruit and empower business partners, fueling their revenue growth as they bring new value to BISTRO.
“To work effectively, spatial analytics requires geo-coding tools to make it possible to visualize location, which is a key factor in business plans,” said Thomas Martens, VP of Product Marketing at Cubeware. “We are proud to offer the LTGeoCoder application to our BISTRO users, which provides a solid foundation for spatial analytics, while integrating with security systems and other factors required to integrate geo-location into BI solutions. The application allows for a streamlined process beneficial to BISTRO customers, allowing for a fully automated process to incorporate geo-coding for existing addresses with other analytics applications.”
For mid-sized enterprises and departments of Global 2000 corporations, BISTRO expedites the process of purchasing, assembling and deploying customized, vertical-market-focused BI solutions so they can be deployed much faster than the conventional BI and analytics solutions. Because BISTRO BI solutions have been proven through successful deployments, BI customers can avoid the risks that come with first-time use applications and scenarios.
