Vancouver, BC – Explorer Software, a leading provider of job cost accounting and service management software worldwide, today announced the debut of the Business Analytics module for Shafers.

Business Analytics allows users to create powerful custom reports, charts and dashboards quickly and easily, without the need for expensive third party software or specialized training in report writing. The easy-to-use solution allows users to choose fields from a list and dynamically sort, filter, and format information in real time. Key information can be displayed on a personalized dashboard, so managers can quickly see how the business is performing.

The module has been available for a number of years for Explorer’s Construction solution, Eclipse, and has been gaining in popularity due to its flexible and intuitive design. A recent poll in Constructech Magazine’s IT Playbook had Explorer Business Analytics as the #2 reporting tool used by Construction companies, finishing ahead of SAP’s Business Objects, Oracle and Microsoft.

“We’re pleased to be launching the Business Analytics module for Shafers. The customers I have spoken to are excited about the powerful new custom reporting capabilities and user-friendly interface,” said Mark Liss, President of Explorer Software. “Within every organization there is a need to analyze data quickly and easily in a format that makes sense. This tool is the right solution and has become a proven leader in the marketplace. We are excited to be showcasing Business Analytics at next year’s Shafers Summit in Las Vegas.”
