French consulting, services and enterprise software reseller, Delphinea Conseils, has
secured a deal to provide automotive manufacturer, Honda, with Yellowfinâ€™s
consumer-oriented Business Intelligence (BI) solution.
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, September 27, 2013 -- The deal has seen Yellowfin rolled
out to the sales team within Honda Motor Europe Ltdâ€™s Power Equipment division
(French branch), providing access to sales and customer data via one single trustworthy
IT Manager at Honda Motor Europe (France), Regis Loumont, explained that the
company wanted to replace its existing BI tool with an easy-to-use and manage reporting
and analytics solution â€“ to boost the performance of its sales force and increase the
efficiency of its IT department â€“ and that Yellowfin was able to achieve that ambition.
â€œYellowfin provides Honda with an intuitive and hassle-free Web-based BI solution,
enabling end-users, administrators and IT personnel to quickly create and access up-to-
date visual analytics, eliminating non-productive activities and producing a distinct
competitive advantage,â€ said Loumont. â€œYellowfin is an agile and responsive

our sales team to independently access the right information at the right moment â€“
whether theyâ€™re at their desk or on-the-move â€“ to boost sales and improve customer
Loumont said that enabling sales personnel to access â€“ and Hondaâ€™s IT department
to efficiently deploy, maintain and manage â€“ BI content via a range of devices was an
important factor in their purchase decision.
â€œHondaâ€™s IT department found it was easily able to boost its mobile data
proficiency with Yellowfinâ€™s â€˜author once, consume anywhereâ€™ approach to
Mobile BI,â€ said Loumont. â€œThe ability to deploy reports to the iPad and other
mobile devices, without the need to redevelop or rework reports in any way, has enabled
both our IT department and sales force to complete their respective roles more effectively
and efficiently, saving time and winning more business.â€
Loumont added that the responsiveness of Yellowfinâ€™s sales team and the technology
itself, combined with localized consultation offered by Yellowfin partners Delphinea
Conseils, delivered a great outcome.
â€œThe intuitive nature of the product, and the professionalism of Yellowfinâ€™s sales
and consulting services teams, has resulted in a highly successful implementation â€“
Honda Europe is a very happy customer,â€ said Loumont.
â€œI highly recommend Yellowfin to any company looking for a simple but complete BI
solution at an affordable price. Yellowfinâ€™s financial and technological scalability
will allow us to easily extend the solution into other business areas in the future.â€
