Business intelligence (BI) consultancy Saltare have started their plans to turn Exeter into a ‘National Centre of Business Intelligence Excellence’ by signing their first affiliate partner.

Their affiliation with South West Business Intelligence (SWBI) was agreed on 16th March, 2017, and means businesses in the South West are now able to get maximum benefit from their BI technology.

The partnership will provide local businesses with the skills needed to gain high value information from their data, in specialised ways that were previously not available to Exeter or the surrounding areas. It combines the best BI technology expertise from SWBI, with Saltare’s knowledge on how to use that BI technology properly.

Phil Husbands, Director, Saltare, said: “We’re really excited by what this partnership means to our new and existing customers. Organisations in the South West now have a single source of combined technical and practical business intelligence expertise, which will help them to use the right BI technology in the right way.”

Fernando Hidalgo, Director, SWBI, said: “SWBI are delighted to announce our partnership with Saltare. This now means we can deliver world class BI from a technical perspective and help customers successfully implement BI from a business management angle.”

Existing customers of each business can access these benefits immediately. Other businesses wishing to benefit from this new affiliation should contact either Saltare or SWBI.
