Bluebird Case Study
Bluebird Auto Rental Systems offer a wide variety of fully integrated software and hardware products, all designed to increase the efficiency and profitability of any size vehicle rental operation. They are also a leading Progress Independent Software Vendor (ISV) and one of the first to embrace cloud computing by offering their software as a hosted SaaS solution.
Bluebird Auto Rental Systems offer DataPA to their customers to provide self-service business intelligence and reporting.
A 21st century requirement
With a customer base made up largely of small vehicle rental businessâ€™s spread across the United States and Europe, it made sense for Bluebird Auto Rental Systems to be an early adopter of both SaaS and Cloud computing. Their NetRent offering allows small businesses to pay for their software on a number of contracts basis, and access it purely across the internet. Offering both low cost and peace of mind for businesses with little or no IT resource, the offering makes perfect sense. However, the large number of small businessâ€™s with only wide area network access to their data also present a particular challenge for reporting and business intelligence.
Business Intelligence in the Cloud
DataPA proved to be the ideal solution. The unique complexity management engine allows business owners and staff to create, manage and schedule their own reports and queries without any IT resource. The unique distributed architecture allows reports to be both created and scheduled against a local mail server, whilst drawing live data securely from the remote database. Finally, DataPAâ€™s simple, cost effective business licenses allow even the smallest leasing operation benefit from live, self service business intelligence.
