The team, consisting of Craig Lefoe, Mal Chambeyron, Chris Horn and Adam Sharp, had met working at Mars – the large global family business responsible for brands like M&M’s,Pedigree and Whiskas. They developed an understanding of the reporting requirements of businesses through rolling out BI reporting to Mars’ Asia Pacific business units.
“We knew we had some unique skills and functional business knowledge combined with technical knowledge,” Craig said. “And, we wanted to use this to bring data to life by visualising businesses data and driving improvement. Something we believed, hoped, others could benefit from.”
Now Toustone has grown to a company that takes care of your business intelligence needs from beginning to end. They host the technical environment for you (Yellowfin Cloud) , develop the reports and provide ongoing support. Now Toustone is proud to have many current successful implementations of BI projects across a number of markets.
But it’s the next phase of business that is going to be even more exciting! Toustone recognised that everyone should benefit from the power of visualising data to improve business efficiency. They have now partnered with Yellowfin – an Australian-based Business Intelligence reporting tool – to build a true BI Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. Together, Toustone and Yellowfin are providing companies with a low risk way to quickly and easily get started with enterprise-grade BI reporting software and support.
One that really does make business reporting easy and affordable.
