«We can easily access our data wherever we are.»

Michael Brönnimann, CEO, ibax AG

As a management consultant Michael Brönnimann is familiar with enterprise information management systems. With his company ibax AG, he has been developing his own business field with unerring success for over six years. The innovation-driven company develops out-of-the-box business intelligence solutions based on sound basic technologies, while relying on the infrastructure of UPC Business.

Companies are always on the lookout for ways of improving efficiency. The more sophisticated the business model, or more extensive the product portfolio, the more difficult it is for management to glean the necessary information. Data frequently has to be extracted from a wide range of source systems like the SAP ERP system, ABACUS or Futura, and then harmonised and presented. “One question keeps cropping up: How can I increase output at little expense?” comments Michael Brönnimann, co-founder of ibax AG in Zurich.

Only large companies could afford efficient business intelligence systems in the past. But Brönnimann and his partners realised the potential in the SME sector. Today, ibax supplies turnkey Management Cockpit (MIS) and reporting solutions to companies throughout the German-speaking world, which can be easily adapted and individually expanded as required.

The staff and partners operate primarily on a very decentralised basis. So it suits them very well to have constant access to their server thanks to a fixed IP address from UPC Business. At the moment ibax is working on a live testing platform to enable customers to view software in action on the IBAX server. According to Brönnimann, aside from stability, speed/bandwidth is a key issue. Opting for UPC Business was therefore strategic:

«upc can offer speeds that take ADSL lines to their physical limits. Really, there’s just no comparison.»

IT expert Brönnimann is also impressed by the competence of the support staff: “The technical support people really know their stuff, and do their best for customers. We are absolutely satisfied.” For all these reasons ibax “will undoubtedly continue working with UPC in the future”.
