Bonaire Software Solutions, a provider of software solutions for asset managers, announced a newly enhanced version of EMPOWER/BI, a business intelligence software module.

EMPOWER/BI provides transparency into asset management product performance, revenues and sales, enabling asset managers to make more informed decisions on product innovation and growth, the firm said in a release.

"Bonaire's EMPOWER/BI is designed specifically for the asset management industry and provides a robust and flexible management information and analytics tool," said John Bosley, COO of Bonaire. "We've found that our clients can utilize EMPOWER/BI to drill down into how products are performing and which are most successful, so that they can better determine how to grow assets under management. The new enhancements to EMPOWER/BI open up new opportunities for our clients to leverage information to impact the bottom line."

The new enhancements to EMPOWER/BI include significant upgrades for product coverage, functionality and usability. EMPOWER/BI is also fully integrated with Bonaire's REVPORT revenue management and fee billing software suite. The platform now incorporates JasperServer v3.7 which includes a larger inventory of industry specific asset management reports, including performance and audit reports, with improved flash charts and CFO and biller dashboards.

Chris John, CEO of Bonaire, comments: "EMPOWER/BI is an easy-to-use platform and enables users to create on demand reporting without waiting for the IT team to develop custom reports. Our clients wanted more flexibility but also a way to access reliable business intelligence to make better decisions. Driven by client demand and evolutions in the market, it reflects our commitment to innovation and technical excellence."
