Teknovisio Oy (Ltd), the international people counting pioneer and an established market leader in Finland, is pleased to announce the latest version of its business intelligence software, Visit® 5.0 SaaS.
Visit® 5.0 SaaS converts business data into actionable knowledge. It is perfect for both large and small companies. Retailers and shopping centers alike can use it to combine information such as visitor flows, customer behaviour, conversion rates, average purchases, staff expenses, marketing budgets and other information, helping them to save costs and improve their business performance more efficiently than ever before.
Teknovisio has maintained a steady annual service contract growth of over 30% using its older Visit® 4.3 reporting software. Even stronger growth is expected, however, upon this new release of their new Visit® 5.0 SaaS software and supporting devices to count people, the result of several years of research and development.
The Golden Egg in the Business Intelligence basket
Business Intelligence is often associated with overwhelming amounts of data from various sources and endless reports upon reports, often failing to provide substantial information to be acted upon. Visit® 5.0 SaaS distills the essential information from all that Business Intelligence data: the opportunity, cost and profit of the customer visit. Teknovisio has developed a special method called Visit Intelligence® for this. Says Juha Ruohonen, an inventor and CEO of the company: ”Visit 5.0 is the Golden Egg in the Business Intelligence basket.”
Besides private business, Visit® 5.0 is useful to organizations in the public and governmental sector, such as libraries administrators of buildings and outdoor facilities. It helps to improve the cost-effectiveness of their administration while improving security and citizens’ satisfaction.
