New Software Helps Wholesale Distributors Increase Sales and Profitability Through Visual Data Discovery

MITS releases interactive charting in MITS Discover 9.0 business intelligence software

Seattle – November 26, 2013 – MITS, a leading provider of reporting and business intelligence software for wholesale distributors and manufacturers, today announced general availability of MITS Discover 9.0, featuring interactive charting functionality for visual data discovery. This new version of the company’s business intelligence tool helps distributors increase sales and profitability by making it easier to visualize and understand what is happening in their business.

Interactive charting, the key enhancement in MITS Discover 9.0, lets non-technical users manipulate and interact with their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and other business system data in a chart format without burdening IT. Users can:

  • Explore data quickly and on the fly by changing chart parameters interactively and onscreen
  • Identify root causes and pinpoint anomalies in business performance by switching back and forth between charts and grid reports
  • Find answers to unexpected questions by toggling chart elements on and off to visualize their impact
  • Save time, share knowledge, and increase collaboration by saving and automating chart reports for distribution

“MITS Discover 9.0 delivers the same intuitive interactive capabilities available in our grid reports, but for data visualization,” said Gary Owen, president of MITS. “Now if a distributor sees something of interest in a chart, they can interact with the data, manipulate and change the data on screen, and drill down into the underlying data. According to our customers, working with data visually is helping them save time and identify new opportunities they would not have seen otherwise in sales, inventory management, vendor performance, and other areas of their business.”

MITS Discover 9.0 is now available as part of the MITS Distributor Analytics solution of reporting tools and pre-packaged content for wholesale distributors using leading ERP packages and other business systems to manage their business.
