Pitney Bowes Group 1 Software Partners with Composite Software
LANHAM, Md. & SAN MATEO, Calif., February 27, 2008 - Pitney Bowes Group 1 Software, Inc., and Composite Software, Inc. today announced a joint OEM/Business Development partnership to deliver solutions that integrate data quality excellence with real-time access and data federation capabilities for better decision-making across global enterprises.
Both SOA-based, the Pitney Bowes Group 1 Software Customer Data Quality Platform (CDQP) combined with Composite Software’s award-winning Composite Information Server and Composite Application Data Services™ will provide users with real-time access to rich, cleansed customer information and other enterprise data. “The integrated offering is designed for the data steward, making his or her job of creating a single, accurate view of the customer easier,” said Jay Bourland, vice president and general manager, Pitney Bowes Group 1 Software.
Composite Software provides the ability to rapidly access and federate information that is often difficult to reach, such as master data and operational data from popular packaged applications including Siebel®, SAP®, Oracle® EBS, salesforce.com®, and other similar enterprise systems. Then Pitney Bowes Group 1 Software’s CDQP seamlessly ingests this data based on customized business rules to create an accurate and consolidated view of customers or other information. The results are fed into a master data repository or applied back to the source systems.
“Businesses have made huge investments in information systems for their important data about customers, inventory, financials, etc.,” noted Patrick Drummond, director of ISV/OEM Sales, Composite Software. “Without access to accurate, up-to-date information, these businesses are not empowered to make the best decisions. However, the single updated customer view provided by the combination of Pitney Bowes Group 1 Software and Composite Software enables organizations to make more informed business decisions that drive bottom-line results.”
