Ostara Systems embeds Logi Analytics to deliver facilities management dashboards

Author: Ostara Systems

Logi Analytics enables Ostara Systems to offer enhanced user visualisation and security within its computer aided facilities management solution.

 

Reading, UK – 15 October 2013 – Ostara Systems, supplier of computer assisted facilities management (CAFM) software, has selected Logi Analytics, the authority on embedded analytics, to deliver its new integrated reporting module, Ostara Insight. Using Logi Analytics, rather than building its own solution, Ostara will provide a more powerful service with enhanced user visualisation and increased security to its clients, who include some of the largest retailers in the UK.

Ostara is a fully hosted service created for multi-site managers so that they can efficiently monitor and maintain their buildings and assets, and make informed estate maintenance decisions.  Every aspect of building maintenance is covered by Ostara, from planned and reactive maintenance, right through to legislative requirements and monitoring and managing the performance of contractors.  Neil Harrison, CEO, Ostara Systems explained: “It can be a challenge to have the right level of performance data available when working with contractors, and with Logi Analytics in place we can deliver a range of dashboards through Ostara Insight.  These dashboards can give a quick overview using pie charts and bar graphs when that is sufficient to check the situation, but users also have the option to drill down to a more granular level when a full detailed analysis is required.”

Prior to embedding Logi Analytics, Ostara was using Microsoft SQL server reporting services but wanted to replace this to provide a faster, more user-friendly reporting solution for its clients.  Having decided to pursue an OEM path, Ostara Systems selected Logi Analytics following a detailed review of available solutions.  Key drivers in the decision to choose Logi Analytics were its ability to handle large volumes of data, the high level of functionality it provides, its pricing structure and its secure, web-enabled delivery as Ostara Insight holds potentially confidential data.  Neil Harrison continued: “We were impressed when we saw the functionality of Logi Analytics and the depth of information it could quickly deliver to our clients, and once we started working with the team we knew we had made the right choice.  Logi Analytics had a great attitude and worked with us to provide the flexible solution we needed to develop, even when we had specific language and currency requirements.”

Ostara Insight will deliver a suite of predefined reports by embedding Logi Analytics over the coming months before extending its capabilities with a range of fully customisable dashboards available on a range of mobile devices.

Simon Ryan, Director of EMEA, Logi Analytics said: “An increasing number of software developers are choosing to embed Logi Analytics in order to reduce the development and integration time needed to create and implement a range of advanced, reporting features at a fraction of the in-house development cost.”
