Bowstreet Introduces Sales and Executive Dashboard Solutions

Tewksbury, MA - May 16, 2005 -- Bowstreet, a leading provider of portal-based tools and solutions, today announced the release of its Sales and Executive Dashboard Solutions as part of its Corporate Performance Suite. With the launch of these powerful Dashboard Solutions, Bowstreet delivers what businesses need to provide comprehensive business intelligence tailored to diverse corporate audiences -- a highly extensible dashboard framework, pre-built integration components, and native portal support.

Bowstreet's solutions are currently IBM WebSphere Portal- and JSR168-compatible, and will soon support additional industry-standard portals. Bowstreet has licensed the Dashboard Solutions to several leading adopters of business intelligence solutions, including Allmerica Financial and UNICCO Service Company.

Executives and managers at Allmerica, one of the nation's most time-honored insurance carriers, use Bowstreet's Executive Dashboard Solution to track daily performance indicators, enabling them to be proactive in managing their business. "We are very pleased with the results," said Mike Clifton, vice president of information technology, Allmerica. "The Executive Dashboard gives our leadership a powerful mechanism for gauging business flow and performance across a number of variables, such as line of business targets, policy mix, and direct written premiums. It also provides real-time, customized views of key information, which can be segmented to show data for a particular region or for the entire company."

UNICCO Service Company, one of North America's largest integrated facilities services outsourcing companies, also recently selected Bowstreet's Corporate Performance Suite for its Executive Dashboard. "We have developed a strong relationship with Bowstreet and a deep respect for its technology and staff," said Bill Jenkins, senior director of IT, UNICCO Service Company. "I am confident that Bowstreet's Executive Dashboard will deliver the impressive results we've come to expect from Bowstreet products, and allow us to quickly customize and deploy dashboards within our existing portal environment. The Executive Dashboard will drive UNICCO Service Company's decision making process and provide our customers with improved visibility into important information."

"Corporate dashboards are one of the top priorities for companies implementing performance management solutions1," said Craig Schiff, president & CEO, BPM Partners, the leading independent authority on business performance management (BPM) solutions. "The right approach is a portal-based dashboard solution -- one that enables companies to build composite dashboards that directly link key performance indicators to both operational data sources and data from within a data warehouse. A dashboard needs to provide comprehensive business intelligence tailored to diverse corporate audiences."

"Our Sales and Executive Dashboard Solutions have been developed by listening to our customers' top priorities and requirements, and working with them to develop solutions that deliver a comprehensive view of their business in a rapid time-to-value format. Bowstreet's Sales and Executive Dashboards are powerful business intelligence tools that give managers unprecedented visibility and control. For the first time, they have a consolidated view of emerging trends, key business metrics, and operational issues, as part of a portal-based composite framework. These packaged solutions eliminate the need to run complex queries or pour through a myriad of reports, allowing employees, managers, and executives to make informed, strategic decisions that are completely aligned with their corporate goals," said Michael George, president and CEO, Bowstreet.

About Bowstreet's Corporate Performance Suite

Bowstreet's Corporate Performance Suite aggregates data from multiple data repositories and back-end systems into composite dashboard solutions, providing companies with a consolidated view into business trends, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and operational intelligence. This comprehensive business insight, combined with built-in collaboration capabilities, provides action-oriented dashboards that allow executives and managers to proactively monitor business performance, make informed decisions, and quickly react to important issues and events. Unlike stand-alone dashboards, Bowstreet's Dashboard Solutions provide native portal support (IBM WebSphere Portal), which enables tailored dashboard views based on multiple user dimensions, such as role, geography, brand, and authorization level.
