Halo BI Span Wins Top Innovations Award

SAN DIEGO, Jan. 20, 2014 -- Halo Business Intelligence (Halo BI), a global provider of business intelligence software, won a 2014 BIG Innovations Award forHalo Span, its unique solution that allows businesses to realize the economic value of their business information assets. Halo Span expands BI beyond a company's confines and enables them to safely and securely share data with partners, suppliers and customers, allowing them access to meaningful information that drives business processes, optimizes decision making, and promotes innovation.

The BIG Innovations Awards program, created by the Business Intelligence Group, recognizes top innovations from companies and organizations worldwide.

"We are honored by this recognition," said Ray Major, President and CEO of Halo BI. "Halo Span is an exciting example of the future of BI, and our holistic approach to business intelligence. Information created by a company's data collection processes need not be merely an operational by-product, but something that can be converted into an asset with real, measurable economic value. Halo Span enables companies to support their entire business ecosystem with actionable information and predictive analytics, which is key to maximizing ROI."

Halo Span's sophisticated features allow companies to share key data, such as customer demographics, sell-through schedules, sales and inventory forecasts and predictive models; and eliminates the need for IT resources to generate and email reports. Mobile and flexible, it simplifies BI access and facilitates a comprehensive approach to answering business questions.

"Traditional BI focuses on allowing users to pour over data about the past and things they can't change. Halo Span on the other hand is a self-service tool that helps our customers look to the future and see where they want to go," Major added.

"We are proud to recognize companies like Halo BI, which are driving business and consumer change with creativity and intelligence," said Russ Fordyce, Managing Director of the Business Intelligence Group. "At the forefront of holistic business intelligence, Halo BI is proving that 2014 will be one of the most innovative years in recent history."
