Visibility Software: Freeing Up Developer Resources

Visibility Software develops employee-focused software that addresses the core recruiting and training management needs of companies in a wide variety of industries. Through their talent and learning management systems, Cyber Recruiter and Cyber Train, Visibility offers flexible integration with existing HR software systems. Their tools help streamline workflows, eliminate manual processes, reduce overhead and facilitate corporate communication.

Intuitive Reporting Needs

Visibility was looking for an ad-hoc report writing tool that would integrate well with their Cyber Recruiter application. It needed to be easy for reporting end users, mainly administrators and recruiters, to use. They already had a third party developer tool to code set-layout reports, but that tool offered limited options for changing reports or providing data discovery. The Visibility team researched several potential solutions, as well as building reporting in-house, before adopting Izenda.

“We were able to focus on building another business application that we could sell.... Izenda’s sole focus is reporting, so why reinvent the wheel?”

Izenda was initially integrated within Cyber Recruiter with existing reports. Izenda utilized their existing security to segment the reporting capabilities based on the role and company. Some users were given the ability to view or modify existing core reports while other users were given access to utilize the full functionality of Izenda to design their own reports against database views.
Partnering with Izenda let Visibility focus on their core products and new application development instead of maintaining a reporting solution. They were able to save valuable development resources by not having to develop, maintain, test, update and support a reporting product within their application.

A Strong Partnership for the Future

Visibility’s internal team and customers have been big proponents of Izenda since their partnership began over five years ago. Working with Izenda has allowed them to meet users’ initial reporting needs as well as add key functionality, like dashboards, as business requirements changed.

Visibility CEO Sean Pomeroy is excited about the opportunities embedded BI offers for future growth. “There are few web-based reporting tools that are as simple yet powerful as Izenda. It’s easy to design reports and dashboards in, and it worked well with our existing technology. Partnering with Izenda allowed us to focus on our core products and strengths, instead of being pulled in another direction to build and maintain yet another product. We were able to focus on building another business application that we could sell, Cyber Train, which has Izenda as the entire reporting solution. Izenda’s sole focus is reporting, so why reinvent the wheel? Over the past five years we have had a good relationship with their team and lean on them for their reporting expertise. They continue to add new features and functionality that our clients need while staying one step ahead of the competition.”
