“From the perspective of creating value for our clients, Yellowfin makes us look fabulous.”

Chris Lindley, CEO and Founder of Foundation Footprint, describes their Yellowfin partnership experience

Foundation Footprint™ is a cloud based software vendor specializing in sustainability, environmental compliance and health and safety systems. As a byproduct of working with large organizations containing multiple subsidiaries vast amounts of data are generated and a need to collate that data in a single place for the purpose of sustainability reporting.
Therefore, three years ago Foundation Footprint embarked in an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) partnership with Yellowfin Business Intelligence (BI). Foundation Footprint integrated Yellowfin BI into their cloud based system as an ad hoc reporting module and also built out specialized reports and dashboards to report on sustainability factors such as energy, waste and water usage.
Regarding Yellowfin’s usability, Lindley explained that “Working with Yellowfin product is a breeze, if someone comes up with an idea, we can create a dashboard that day; it’s that quick.”
In the video below, Lindley, further explains their decision in choosing Yellowfin BI as their reporting solution.
