OneSource Introduces Catalyst

Oct 07, 2003

OneSource Information Services, Inc., a provider of business information solutions, has announced the OneSource Catalyst product family of business intelligence modules designed to maximize the productivity of customer-centric functions and organizations. The first of the application modules being introduced is the Catalyst/Account Intelligence Module for Siebel eBusiness Applications, a pre-built component for Siebel 7 and Siebel 7.5 that delivers business information from the Enhanced Information Warehouse repository into the Siebel Systems environment.

The new OneSource Catalyst modules integrate critical business information, including news, company profiles and financial data into applications that support key business processes, such as customer relationship management (CRM) systems, portals, and productivity tools such as spreadsheets. Catalyst modules reduce the overall amount of time users spend searching for key data about clients and prospects, and help users make effective use of that data to advance their competitive position and strengthen their customer relationships. The OneSource Catalyst/Account Intelligence Module for Siebel eBusiness Applications is designed to enable sales organizations to improve effectiveness through shortened sales cycles and more rapid market penetration.

Features of the Account Intelligent Module for Siebel include: Account Profiles--including business description, analyst reports, news and articles, senior and mid-level executive contacts, corporate family structure information, and financial statements and public filings. Personalized News Alerts--based on individual account lists and selected business topics, OneSource delivers news for the user's accounts within any Siebel screen. Presentation Tailoring--allowing for basic tailoring of content presentation. Usage Tracking--using built-in tracking features, systems administrators and sales management can gain an understanding of information usage of OneSource products in support of best practices, training, and internal billing processes. The OneSource Catalyst/Account Intelligence Module for Siebel eBusiness Applications is available immediately from OneSource, and is currently pending validation for integration with Siebel 7.5. Pricing is based on a per-seat annual subscription basis, with volume discounts.
