Recently, we talked to some of our customers, and they told us that they couldn’t imagine having worked without PlatformManager before. They explained the pain points they were suffering which they no longer need to worry about, such as:
After nearly 10 years of experience, we aren’t new to the world of BI. However, we wanted to talk about why we do what we do, and how it helps businesses with gaining value out of their Business Intelligence environment We’re not ones to brag or talk about ourselves too much (!), so we’ll keep this to the core concept of why we exist and what we want for our customers and our future. Helping deliver BI in a better way and more cost-effective is the very essence of why we exist, so let us show you how it all started. The Beginning We officially started in 2013 based in the Netherlands and we’ve now grown to support over 200 customers globally. The idea for Platform Manager started with our MD and Owner Jeroen Gerritsen who, previously to Platform Manager, worked on several BI projects.

The PlatformManager user interface is aimed at being able to quickly find and execute functions. The UI is also excellent for this and we even get positive feedback about the user-friendliness. In terms of look and feel there is room for improvement and we took on that challenge some time ago. We engaged a specialized design agency to investigate what a good, user-friendly and modern interface should look like. After discussions with Partners and customers, this resulted in a design that we are very satisfied with and which has also been coordinated with various customers. The reactions are very positive and we now want to give you a sneak peek so that you know where PlatformManager’s design is headed.Figure 1 shows the navigation between modules and the folder structure.
