The inZite Business Intelligence Suite from Performance Partners Inc. provides a rapid and agile solution that manages and delivers the accurate and relevant data needed by decisions makers at any level in the organization and enables sharing of insights and viewing of trends and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
inZite’s dashboards are intuitive; metrics act as snapshots of corporate data and translate information collected across various systems into dynamic maps, charts and gauges, creating an at-a-glance view of relevant information. One-push button web-deployment provides Mobile BI out-of-the-box. The Planning and Forecasting capabilities can be applied to corporate strategy in real-time, from all aspects of the business.
inZite is simple to learn and utilize, even for staff members with limited technical expertise, users do not need programming skills to implement and maintain inZite. The flexible implementation method allows for a first phase delivery to be achieved within weeks.
Data from sources like SAP, Oracle, Dynamics, SQL, DB2, and Salesforce easily integrate into inZite. We like that it also fully integrates with Microsoft Office, letting users create dashboards in Excel, deliver information in real time through PowerPoint, and organize commentary and data into Word documents.
inZite is powered by industry leading BI vendors: Microsoft, CALUMO and timeXtender. It is offered as either web-based and on-premise deployment, giving businesses the options they need to tailor the system to suit their unique needs.
Alister from Unviersity of New South Wales

The University of New South Wales (UNSW) is one of Australia's leading Universities that have a turnover of $1.4 billion and over 50,000 students. When being a not-for-profit organization, financial stewardship and due diligence is essential.
Our organization uses CALUMO along with the Microsoft BI stack to provide a range of management reporting, budgeting/forecasting, planning, and analysis tools to a wide range of staff throughout the University. UNSW has been using CALUMO for the past 4 years with currently about 300 active users.
How do you describe software that goes far beyond what you originally envisioned or thought possible? Here goes...
As a result of using CALUMO, UNSW's budgeting, forecasting, and reporting processes run extremely smoothly and efficiently. We currently complete the annual budget cycle, monthly forecasting, and executive level reporting from the bottom up. We have the following data in CALUMO that can be accessed and reported on: financial (actuals, forecasts, and budgets with journal drill through), HR (costs, FTE, Leave), accounts receivable, credit card, alumni, student, and profitability modeling.
The presentation layers being on the web and in Excel gives all the power to the user to see the data the way they want. Having Microsoft SQL Server as the engine provides us with a completely open architecture. The power that is available to the end user from revealing the MDX code from within Excel is simply extraordinary. Drill through to a transaction from both the web and excel amazes our users. The software is at the cutting edge of business intelligence software. We have gone from strength to strength in all our planning and management reporting areas as a result of this software.
There have been real and effective time saving benefits of using CALUMO. In one of many like examples our research reporting was reduced from 3 months to 2 weeks by utilizing the power of CALUMO. The web reporting is extremely fast and flexible. Being able to publish reports from excel with a single click is cutting edge. The software is intuitive for users unfamiliar with OLAP/BI technologies.
The help and support of CALUMO is unrivaled. For example, we made a suggestion for an improvement in the software. By the end of the same business day, the developers had sent a video of the requested improvement working in a development environment. Required critical updates have been turned around by the next business day. We don't know how the guys do it... they just do!
CALUMO partnering with Microsoft have effectively made business intelligence available for the masses without the million-dollar price tag that comes along with most of the vendors in this space. The additional functionality that has been delivered by CALUMO over the past 4 years has been amazing. We haven't scratched the surface of functionality that this software has to offer and yet more is being delivered. I challenge anyone out there, to have a requirement in the BI space that this software cannot meet (large or small).
I cannot rave enough about this software! Anyone who wants to see this software in action is welcome to have a look at what we have achieved with it.
