iQ4bis Software Inc, a global software provider that offers an end-to-end business intelligence solution for business managers and executives in midmarket enterprises, and SmartCubes Inc, a value-added provider of technology solutions in the Philippines, announced at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference a partnership in which SmartCubes Inc will exclusively offer the industry-leading iQ4bis Analysis and DataServer software suite.

SmartCubes recently completed the successful deployment of iQ4bis within Philippine-based Fil-Pacific Corporation, a leading provider of clothing under internationally known high-end brands such as Lee, Jag, Tribal Gear and Von Dutch.

“Like many businesses, we had data in abundance but it was located in different systems and could not be accessed, analyzed and evaluated quickly,” said Dale A. Roberts, vice president, corporate business of Fil-Pacific Apparel Corporation. “We were unable to make the right decisions for the future of our business. After looking at many alternatives, we decided the best route was to utilize a system that provided easy-to-use analytical and reporting tools that would still fulfill our business requirements. To this end, SmartCubes was our partner of choice.”

Fil-Pacific utilizes the Microsoft line of integrated, adaptable business management solutions including Dynamics NAV enterprise resource planning (ERP) and Retail Management system (RMS), Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint and Microsoft's Enterprise Project Management System. The added capabilities of iQ4bis enable the visibility of the organization's business data at an enterprise level.

“Fil-Pacific Apparel was a great project to be involved with,” said Darren Taylor, managing director of SmartCubes, Inc. “Not only did we work together to develop their business intelligence strategy, but we were also involved in updating their entire enterprise. To see the solutions come together and the benefits Fil-Pacific are now reaping is fantastic. Implementing our technology using `out-of-the-box' products from Microsoft and iQ4bis without any customization to the core products enabled us to meet Fil-Pacific's strict requirements.”

“SmartCubes reverse engineered our final requirements, all the way through ERP, product development, project management and document management,” continues Roberts. “We instructed SmartCubes that all of our systems have to work seamlessly together right out of the box. SmartCubes achieved this by using Microsoft products and partner solutions. The team also worked with us in developing new business processes and aligned these to our business performance requirements. The end result is that our data is accessible and visible, and we now have 'a single version of the truth' across our organization.”

The iQ4bis suite of business intelligence solutions provides business users with access to critical information including finance and sales. Data warehousing and detailed reports enable users to view a historic perspective of sales information as well as easily identify industry trends and analyze sales performance.

“Because our solutions are flexible enough to seamlessly integrate in different environments, our goal is to partner with companies that understand industry-specific requirements for analytics and reporting,” said Kaz Handa, vice president of sales – APAC, with iQ4bis. “The team at SmartCubes has the unique know-how that meets the requirements of the business user, and we are very pleased to provide their clients with an end-to-end analytical solution.”
