Jaspersoft Replaces Crystal Reports to Drive Business Intelligence for Leading Nonprofit Constituent Management Platform
SAN FRANCISCO, June 29, 2009 — Jaspersoft, provider of the world's most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that Orange Leap, the company that delivers innovation and efficiency through technology to the nonprofit community, has chosen Jaspersoft to replace Crystal Reports for its web-based, custom reporting product, The Guru.
Orange Leap provides open source software solutions for nonprofit organizations that need to manage the entire lifecycle of relationships with donors and constituents. The Guru was specifically introduced to create sophisticated reports for analyzing data from any data source to enhance the productivity of relationship development and fundraising initiatives.
There are nearly 1.5 million nonprofit organizations operating around the world. Almost half of those organizations require more than spreadsheets to manage relationships with large groups of constituents but don't have on-staff IT administrators or software developers. Orange Leap is the leading open source provider addressing this market and enabling nonprofits to benefit from insightful business intelligence. With Orange Leap, nonprofit organizations of any size can benefit from analytical capabilities comparable to those enjoyed by many of the world's largest institutions and businesses.
"Jaspersoft shares our open source philosophy on software and provides an easy, customizable solution for our nonprofit customers who often don't have IT administrators on staff," said Randy McCabe, CEO at Orange Leap. "We were able to take advantage of Jaspersoft's leadership position in the BI market and do in six months what would have taken us years to develop on our own."
By using Jaspersoft's open source BI suite, Orange Leap was able to develop a sophisticated yet easy-to-use report building wizard to simplify the analysis process while reducing customer training costs. Before The Guru was introduced, the nonprofit community was limited to paying large sums of money for custom development. Today, The Guru gives anyone the ability to create sophisticated custom reports through a web interface in five simple steps.
