Actuate Names North Star BlueScope Steel, and Access Data as Winners of 2012 Customer Excellence Awards

Actuate Corporation (NASDAQ: BIRT), The BIRT Company™ – delivering more insights to more people than all BI companies combined – today announced that it has recognized two customers: North Star BlueScope Steel (NSBSL), and Access Data (Broadridge Financial), with 2012 Actuate Excellence Awards for their implementations of ActuateOne® with BIRT, and of BIRT Performance Analytics.

North Star BlueScope Steel (NSBSL) Recognized in the “BIRT Implementation” Category, for Streamlining Multiple Interfaces into a Single BI Visualization Framework to Drive Operational Improvement on All Levels

NSBSL won for their implementation of ActuateOne with BIRT, to support replacement of their multiple, disparate reporting solutions with a single, standard BI framework. ActuateOne provided value-added functionality that NSBSL needed to make that transition, including the ability to retrieve data from any source, no matter how large. Another factor in the decision to choose Actuate was the ability to leverage NSBSL’s existing investment with IBM Maximo through seamless integration via BIRT.

“When I saw a demo of the tools Actuate provided, I knew right away it would help us increase the visibility of our essential operations and help the management team run the business with improved operational efficiency and agility,” said Miguel Alvarez, NSBSL President. “This had become a top priority for our development staff.”

ActuateOne, with its ease of use and virtually unlimited extensibility for collaboration, allows NSBSL to provide operational information to all 350 employees as well as to customers, vendors and suppliers, making visualizations and performance dashboards available to everyone from any interface.

Access Data Recognized for OEM Implementation of ActuateOne with BIRT

Access Data, a Broadridge Financial Solutions (NYSE: BR) company, and a long-time customer of Actuate, won an award in the “BIRT OEM Implementation” category, for the implementation of ActuateOne v11 with BIRT embedded as part of their SalesVision® platform, an enterprise data management and reporting solution. The features of ActuateOne allowed Access Data to offer asset managers and financial intermediaries the ability to personalize their own reports with exactly the capabilities they want. Access Data’s SalesVision automates the collection of mutual fund transactions across all distribution channels and delivers consistent, reliable and timely information from one data source.

“Having partnered with Actuate for years, we quickly realized that the enhanced visualization features of ActuateOne with BIRT would allow us to offer our customers the interactive reporting capabilities they were asking for,” said Mike Bryan, Development Manager, at Access Data.

Winners of the Actuate Excellence awards were honored this morning in New York City, at ActuateOne Live! 2012 – Actuate’s annual industry event. Join the conversation on Twitter: #A1Live.
