F.W. Davison Partners with Entrinsik to Integrate Informer Reporting Within its HRPyramid Web Edition Solution

Entrinsik, a leading provider of database reporting solutions for the IBM UniData and UniVerse (U2) family of database products, and F.W. Davison & Company, a developer of high performance software solutions for the PEO and HRO industry, recently announced general availability of Informer Web Reporting for its hosted version of HR Pyramid. Previously, Entrinsik’s Informer was already a popular reporting solution for F.W. Davison’s non-hosted HRPyramid customers. Entrinsik partners with a number of MultiValue solution providers like F.W. Davison, to integrate Informer as a real-time, interactive, Web-based reporting tool for their packaged offering.

“The model of software as a service seems to be taking over more and more. It is a very popular model,” Doug Leupen, president of Entrinsik, told DBTA, observing that it relieves customers of the burden of investing in equipment and IT staff. “We expect to do more and more of that,” he noted.

The hosted HRPyramid Web Edition integrates Informer Reporting software to deliver all the functionality of a non-hosted solution without the need to build and maintain a computing infrastructure. Informer is embedded within the HRPyramid Web Edition application and utilizes the security settings within Web Edition to manage reporting access.
“The integration of these two packages provides HRPyramid users the real-time reporting functionality of Informer without any fear of accessing unauthorized data,” said Scott Hastings, CEO of F.W. Davison, at the time of the announcement. “Embedding Informer enables our HRPyramid customers to deliver a feature-rich, secure, intuitive Web reporting solution to their clients. We are very excited to bring Informer reporting capabilities to our hosted customers."

"Our partnership with F.W. Davison demonstrates Informer's ability to be used as a privately-labeled OEM reporting tool to deliver significant added value,” Leupen stated. “HRPyramid users now have a scalable, cost-effective reporting solution to securely access critical information anytime, anywhere via the Web.” Having Informer as an easy Web conduit into a database becomes very important in the hosted world, but it is as well in the non-hosted world, Leupen added.
