Keyrus becomes a partner of Calame Software


Levallois-Perret, June 7, 2013

Keyrus, an international player in performance management consulting and in the integration of decision-making solutions, announces the signing of a worlwide partnership agreement with Calame Software, French developer-publisher of Gathering Tools, a software solution for the transformation of data collection processes.

Calame Software offers businesses an innovative product which enables them, in a straightforward and industrial manner, to enhance the value of, and make secure, the data scattered in desktop tools. Indeed, Business Intelligence (BI) initiatives often come up against the problem that a large part of the data and the know-how within organizations is buried within desktop documents and therefore misses out on the benefits of the BI solutions implemented by the business.

Gathering Tools enables these scattered goldmines, born out of existing desktop facilities, to be integrated into BI architectures, so as to offer organizations truly overall management of their business. Whilst at the same time preserving the flexibility of use and the scalability of desktop tools, the software solution additionally offers all of the automation, the security, the conformity and the traceability that one can expect from an industrial solution. One of the strong points of Gathering Tools is that it limits the integration burden and the change management by capitalizing extensively on the achievements of the organization. For the businesses which adopt it, the deployment of Gathering Tools is a swift victory.

« Calame Software has a market positioning which is both innovative and pragmatic », underlines Reda Gomery, Director of Operations at Keyrus.  » A genuine accelerator of the integration of data into the BI world, the Gathering Tools solution brings enhanced value as much to the Business Lines as to IT. »

Gathering Tools is already deployed in several very large public and private businesses and organizations which have quickly grasped the software solution’s numerous benefits. The Gathering Tools software offering constitutes a very strong driver of the profitability and success of Business Intelligence projects, notably for heavily-decentralised organizations. It enables one to address the entirety of the major departments of the business engaged in a decision-making initiative (Management Controlling, HR, Marketing, Sales… and the IT Department).

By integrating Gathering Tools, Keyrus completes its technological product and service offering, thereby enabling its clients to enhance the value of the entirety of their mines of information. On the back of several projects successfully completed over the last year, Keyrus henceforth has very extensive expertise and prime experience to assist its clients successfully in the implementation of this new data-collection technology.

With this partnership, Keyrus once again demonstrates its ability to detect, today, the innovative solutions which will form the Business Intelligence of tomorrow.

 » This worldwide agreement with Calame Software opens up new possibilities for Keyrus‘ clients throughout the world by complementing our decision-making product and service offering with a solution which is highly differentiating on the market and which enables the business to manage the entirety of its data in a more collaborative and secure manner « , adds Reda Gomery.

 » We are delighted to draw on the dynamism and the expertise of a solid group like Keyrus, to accelerate and facilitate the success of our clients’ projects «  declares Matthieu Barbillat, Sales Director at Calame Software in charge of partnership arrangements.  » This partnership is going to enable us to make our software solution broadly available and to attack new markets in Europe, in North America and in Brazil. »
