Bison Analytics Growth Based on Small Business Need for 'Small Data' Analytics
LEWISBURG, Pa. --(Business Wire)--
Analytics, a leading provider of customized business intelligence
software for small and mid-size companies, announced milestone
accomplishments in 2013, including plans for enhanced analytic solutions
for clients in 2014.
Kurt Steckel, CEO of Bison Analytics, says "Clients regard customized reports as a uniquely powerful benefit, one that until recently was unavailable for countless small or mid-size companies. We realize our clients have individualized data delivery preferences, different priorities, and fierce competition for a profitable niche in the marketplace. A one-size-fits-all BI system would not support their operational efficiency or financial success." (Photo: Business Wire)
Key to the company's continued expansion is the demand for tools to
analyze business data relevant to small and mid-size businesses - "small
data" as distinct from Big Data.
"Smaller companies are the foundation for U.S. economic growth,
requiring specific analytics to mine invaluable 'small data,'" said
Bison Analytics CEO Kurt Steckel. "Our exclusive arrangement last June

System, clients quickly and affordably access customized QuickBooks

Steckel expects his company to add staff and clients again in 2014,
intercepting an escalating demand for analytic services for all aspects
of business management.
