→ Crowe Horwath goes live on Intellistat version 7.5:
Longtime Data Fusion customer Crowe Horwath LLP has recently completed an upgrade to Intellistat version 7.5, the latest version of DFTech's Analytics solution. Crowe has been a loyal client since 2003 and has a long history of leveraging the Analytics data warehouse for critical financial and productivity reporting throughout the firm. The implementation was successful due in large part to the well managed coordination between Crowe’s finance and IT groups and DFTech's implementation team.
Jim Himschoot, Crowe’s Assistant Director and Senior SQL DBA comments,
“Like most complex software upgrades, this project required participation from many groups, both internal and external to the firm. What made this upgrade run smoothly was the quick response to issues by all participants and a focus from DFTech’s implementation team to deliver what they promised and work within our tight window to complete this upgrade before the end of our fiscal year. That effort, also, paid off as demonstrated by a very smooth and seamless "go-live" resulting in uninterrupted delivery of analytical financial information throughout the firm.”
“The Intellistat data warehouse and reporting interface provides near real time access to financial information previously only accessible via custom SQL queries out of Elite. Information is easily accessible to both attorneys and administrative staff with limited application training required. Data Fusion has been a strategic partner with our Finance group in delivering a highly effective business reporting solution to support our growing business.”
