Sartomer Takes Business Intelligence to the Next Level With Agilisys Business Analytics

MALVERN, PA – Sept. 17, 2002: Agilisys Inc., a global provider of business solutions to the process manufacturing industries, announced today that Sartomer Company has gone live with the Agilisys Business Analytics solution. Sartomer Company, part of ATOFINA the chemical branch of TOTAL FINA ELF Group, is using the Agilisys Business Analytics solution to analyze information, including margins, market and customer trends, stored in their business systems.

Sartomer’s previous method of tracking market data, which utilized PC-based reports and spreadsheets, was manual and time consuming, creating a need for a new solution that would allow for more manageable data analysis and interpretation. The company selected the Agilisys Business Analytics solution not only because it is already integrated with the Agilisys ERP system, but also because it was a more flexible solution than competitive solutions they evaluated.

“We needed a better way to analyze and communicate market data to help our sales force increase its focus on specific market opportunities,” said Tom Urzillo, ERP System Manager at Sartomer Company. “The Agilisys Business Analytics solution was very appealing to us because of its complete automation, allowing e-deployment of critical information to our product managers and sales force in easily interpreted formats such as OLAP-cubes, graphs and reports.” “Sartomer, like many Agilisys clients, is recognizing the need to achieve tangible and measurable benefits for business success,” said Jim Schaper, president and CEO of Agilisys, Inc. “Because we are in tune with the needs of our clients and the general needs of the process manufacturing industries, we can focus on providing advanced solutions, like Business Analytics, to enable our clients flexible means of increasing profitability and maintaining competitive advantage.”
