Analytics Specialist Inside Info Leverages Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite to Help Organizations Enhance Financial Processes and Increase Business Agility
Redwood City, CA – August 6, 2015 –

Host Analytics, the leader in cloud-based enterprise performance management (EPM), today announced an exclusive partnership with Inside Info, business and finance analytics specialists, to accelerate the company's growth in the Australia-New Zealand markets. As the largest provider of Qlik business analytics within this region for the last twelve years, Inside Info has partnered with Host Analytics to extend its reach into the office of finance, helping new and existing customers move their strategic financial applications into the cloud.

World-class organizations are increasingly turning to cloud-based EPM applications because of the limitations and inefficiencies of disparate spreadsheets, manual processes, and legacy on-premises EPM solutions. Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite is the industry's most comprehensive suite to address all five main pillars of EPM – modeling, planning, consolidation, reporting and analytics – enabling organizations to streamline critical business processes, better align finance and operational functions, and achieve faster time-to-value and lower overall costs.

The Inside Info-Host Analytics Partnership

“The movement of EPM to the cloud represents a huge market opportunity and we are very pleased with our partnership with Inside Info to expand our footprint in Australia and New Zealand,” said Andy Ross, Vice President of Alliances at Host Analytics. “In today's data-driven business environment, it's imperative for organizations to have immediate, unfettered access to key financial and operational metrics so they can respond quickly to changes that could materially impact their business.”

“Combining our years of experience in business and finance analytics with the leading cloud-based EPM system on the market, this partnership will enable us to better serve our clients and prospects, providing an integrated, best-of-breed analytics capability for both finance and operational teams,” said Stuart Barnard, Managing Director for Inside Info. “As organizations look to replace the cost and complexity of their legacy on-premises EPM systems, Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite is unmatched in its ability to deliver an innovative cloud-based solution that enhances financial processes and increases business agility.”

Early Customer Success

“Our challenge was finding an EPM solution that could manage our organization's complex planning processes across finance and operations,” said Doug MacColl, CFO of exhibition and event specialists, Reed Exhibitions. “Host Analytics Cloud EPM Suite provided us with a robust environment to address a complex set of requirements with minimal overhead, so we can focus our attention on better anticipating business outcomes. Inside Info came with a depth of intellect and experience that has added real value, which has been a key factor to ensure our implementation success.”
