Lawson Introduces ViewPoint For Lawson Business Intelligence

Lawson Software (Nasdaq:LWSN) today introduced ViewPoint for Lawson Business Intelligence, a new analytic application builder that extends the value of Lawson Smart Office and Lawson Business Intelligence. Lawson ViewPoint helps users create personalized reports and dashboards without having to engage IT resources. It helps users explore data and get to the specific information they need, allowing them to cut through information overload. Lawson ViewPoint is generally available as of March 31, 2011 for the Lawson S3 Enterprise Management System. Lawson introduced the new offering during the 2011 Lawson Conference and User Exchange (CUE), which opened today in Boston.

ViewPoint for Lawson Business Intelligence functions as part of the Lawson Smart Office user environment. It helps improve overall usability because it helps the software user get to the right information and customize their own dashboards, aligning with their own preferences for how data is presented. So a user may prefer bar charts over pie charts, or perhaps they prefer to see data broken out in multiple views or as data grids. Lawson ViewPoint makes it easy for the user to obtain and work with data in their preferred view.

In addition, ViewPoint helps foster greater collaboration through intuitive, user friendly options. This includes the ability to send links to specific reports or dashboards, easy creation of discussion groups, and comment features for reports and dashboards. Data from Lawson S3 business applications as well as non-Lawson applications can be combined in a single view to help streamline analysis across disparate systems.

“ViewPoint blends the user productivity aspects of Lawson Smart Office with the analytic capabilities of Lawson Business Intelligence, while helping to simplify and enhance the overall user experience,” said Lee Kilmer, director of product management for Lawson. “Users can easily collaborate with others in the organization, which helps bring more meaning and context to data and reports. All of this can help lead to more effective use of data, better decisions and cost savings.”
