OneCall Manage Takes Wireless Management to BI Level With Granular Access to Databases

Proactive Report Generation From Any Point of View, User Behavior Analysis, Scalable, and a Help Desk That Facilitates Changes Within 24 Hours
All Equal Driving Down Ongoing Costs

Red Bank, N.J., December 14, 2010— OneCall Manage, provider of a systems-thinking infrastructure for wireless management, today announced that its wireless management software suite has business intelligence (BI) level database access and report generation capabilities.

Further, BI software translates that data into natural language, and auto-generates a single report that enables CFOs and other executives to problem solve discretely. If that software can also access dynamic data on the fly and include it in the report’s point of view, the ante of BI is upped to be labeled analytics-driven BI software.
