"Our finance team was juggling several spreadsheets at once, and it became impossible to manage the growing influx of data," said Aaron Palajac, senior financial analyst at Calypso. "Formatting and validating the data consumed most of our annual six-month budget process, and by the time this was done, information was already out of date. With Host Analytics, we've streamlined the process, and -- no longer buried in spreadsheets -- can deliver more strategic value in terms of corporate planning." Based in San Francisco, Calypso has offices in 17 financial centers around the world. Host Analytics helps the rapidly growing global company to analyze the impact of complex financial exchange rates and manage the expenses of foreign offices in local currencies. In addition, Calypso is able to produce monthly reports in minutes versus days for faster planning and analysis.

"Global organizations like Calypso face specific challenges around budgeting, reporting and planning," said Keri Brooke, vice president of marketing at Host Analytics. "The value of Host Analytics extends beyond the capabilities of spreadsheets and simple budgeting or planning tools, arming finance and other executives with the timely, accurate and complete information they need to make better business decisions." Host Analytics is one of Silicon Valley's fastest growing cloud companies. The company delivers the first and only complete suite of cloud CPM and business analytics applications to help finance executives drive faster and smarter decisions throughout their organizations. Host Analytics has a complete cloud CPM suite covering planning, budgeting, scorecarding, financial consolidation and reporting.
