StatSoft has launched a highly influential CSR initiative to offer free Enterprise Business Analytics software to aid struggling companies in Greece, Portugal, and Spain.
From the Official press release:
StatSoft, Inc., one of the world’s largest providers of analytics software, is taking its corporate motto to a whole new level by offering STATISTICA Enterprise™ solutions (including its cutting-edge Big Data Predictive Analytics Platform) at no charge to companies in countries most affected by the European economic downturn: Greece, Portugal, and Spain.
StatSoft’s motto, “Making the World More Productive™,” reflects its core belief that business analytics and big data processing are key to the productivity of every growing company. The sour economies in some countries, however, have made it impossible for struggling businesses to afford the very software solutions that could help them increase productivity, streamline operations, and achieve safety, quality, and environmental improvements. So, for a limited time, StatSoft is offering its powerful Enterprise and Predictive Analytics solutions for free to qualifying businesses.
“Given StatSoft’s recent growth in other international markets, we are very pleased to be in a position to help our corporate neighbors in Greece, Portugal, and Spain whose well-known capabilities are being undermined by regional economic conditions,” notes StatSoft’s CEO, Dr. Paul Lewicki. “The highly educated work force in those economies is fully capable of taking advantage of the well-demonstrated, tangible productivity improvements and savings that our modern predictive analytics software can offer. Paradoxically, however, the shortage of available credit prevents them from acquiring the crucial technology that would vastly speed up their recovery. Our goal is to make sure these companies succeed, because we firmly believe that analytics can change the world for the better.”
This large scale initiative adds new meaning to the well-known business term ROI (Return on Investment). StatSoft will serve first those companies whose infrastructure development it deems would produce the largest economic return, in terms of social and employment benefits. Lewicki anticipates other companies will follow suit. “We hope for a snowball effect, where our leadership will prompt other companies to do the same as us,” he explains, “thus helping reduce the current risk for the Euro and speeding up the European recovery.”
As reflected in case studies and success stories at http://www.statsoft.com/customers/success-stories/,STATISTICA Enterprise installations of any scope can result in huge dividends that help business enterprises not only survive but thrive, even while regional economies may be slow to recover.
Those companies in Spain and Portugal interested in this free software opportunity must contact the StatSoft Iberica office. Companies in Greece are welcome to contact any StatSoft office in Europe (found athttps://www.statsoft.com/contact-us/statsoft-locations-map/) or the US Headquarters.
