The Cerebiz web based Business Intelligence (‘BI’) service for SME business has been awarded a Certificate of Merit in the KPMG sponsored Financial Industry Application iAward category.

The iAwards is a national competition recognizing outstanding achievement in information technology. It’s the ‘Logies’ for the local information technology industry and is run each year by the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA).

Peter Vroom, Cerebiz Director of Corporate Development, said, "We are very pleased to receive this award which recognizes both the value Cerebiz brings to our SME customers, and well as the innovation and dedication of our team to put this vital SME service for the Internet age together.

"Cerebiz is the first packaged Business Intelligence (BI) solution designed for fast growth SMEs to manage their business and prosper even in difficult financial times.

"SME owners and managers can now get to see the customer, product and sales person contribution (or lack of it) to profitability in a new light. They can instantly drill down to discover the cause of figures that don’t measure up, and make better business decisions based on factual and up to date detail. Managing profitability and cash is essential in these difficult financial times.

"Our innovation is taking, as we did, a corporate in house Business Intelligence solution, and to adapt that to the web and the needs of SME business. We addressed SME needs through a monthly subscription based service to avoid the need for capital outlay, by offering full BI facilities on the SME’s company data within hours of signing up (as compared with months for corporate BI systems), by avoiding any extra training requirement for users familiar with an Internet browser, and by providing an option for the SME’s external Accountant to link in to improve information flow between SME and Accountant.

"Accountants like it because it streamlines things for them, and it provides them with two way facilities, for example to make end of period journal entries through the Cerebiz system.

"And everyone likes the secure anywhere, anytime access that the Cerebiz Internet based service offers," he concluded.
