insightsoftware, the global leader in enterprise resource planning (ERP) and enterprise performance management (EPM) reporting solutions, today announced the acquisition of BizNet Software, a leading software developer of Excel-based reporting and analytics solutions. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
insightsoftware is the market leader in financial reporting and enterprise performance management, supporting more than 155,000 enterprise users in 5,500 companies across 130 countries worldwide. The acquisition adds to insightsoftware’s Excel-based reporting expertise and gives BizNet’s customers and channel partners access to a broader portfolio of reporting, visual analytics, and planning and budgeting solutions that connect to a wider range of ERP and EPM systems.
Based in Dallas, BizNet Software was founded to leverage the power of Microsoft Excel to facilitate the creation and sharing of interactive reports in minutes to save time, increase accuracy and enable users to answer many of their own business questions without being an Excel expert or requiring IT support. Selling both directly and through a network of channel partners, the company has more than 2,800 customers ranging from mid-market businesses to large corporations with a particular focus on the financial, distribution, manufacturing, and non-profit industries.
“With BizNet’s capabilities, insightsoftware is expanding our family of market-leading reporting products and fortifying our ability to offer ‘right for me’ customer solutions, regardless of their company size, the ERP/EPM they use, or their reporting environment preference,” said Mike Lipps, CEO of insightsoftware. “The combination creates the ultimate advantage for our customers, as well as our partners and distributors, around the world.”
“BizNet’s growth and success over more than two decades is because we recognized a real customer need in the market – users were wasting too much time collecting data and building reports in Excel instead of spending time analyzing the data to gain insight and drive more informed business decisions,” said George McMann, founder and CEO of BizNet Software. “We share insightsoftware’s vision for financial reporting and enterprise performance management, so this deal opens a whole new world of opportunities for our customers and partners to access complementary reporting and analysis solutions across a wide range of ERP and EPM systems.”

World’s Largest Blockchain Application Competition ‘Klaytn Horizon’ Winners Announced
Klaytn, the leading blockchain project led by the South Korean Internet giant Kakao announced the winners for its BApp (Blockchain Application) competition, ‘Klaytn Horizon.’
Klaytn Horizon invited all developers worldwide to build blockchain applications on the Klaytn platform whose mainnet launched this past June. Prioritizing its efforts towards mass blockchain adoption and ecosystem building, Klaytn prospected for competent blockchain projects that can facilitate blockchain experience.
Over 100 projects were submitted by developers across the globe including Korea, U.S., China, France, Russia, Switzerland, Slovakia, India, the Philippines, and many others. Most of the projects are Klaytn-based tools including wallets and exchanges that enhance BApp development and usability. The judges selected 15 award-winning teams that have the most potential to deliver practical service with meaningful values based on user-friendly blockchain experience.
The top five winners of the Klaytn Horizon are as follows:
Exnomy (India & Korea)
Exnomy is a hybrid cryptocurrency exchange that enables a handful of cryptocurrencies tradeable with Klaytn’s token KLAY based on high scalability and competitive gas fee structure. It combines high security with fast transaction speed.
Jetstream is a Chrome browser extension wallet that enables the transfer of KLAY and KCT (Klaytn Compatible Tokens) as well as Klaytn-based non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The fees incurred by users can also be delegated to a service provider to ensure an effective user experience.
Klay.exchange (The Philippines & Korea)
Klay.exchange is a decentralized exchange protocol supporting the value transfer of KLAY and KCT. Based on an intuitive swap algorithm, the service allows simple and easy blockchain experience for users.
KUSD Stablecoin (U.S. & Russia)
KUSD is the stablecoin solution that seeks to effectively mitigate the arbitration risk and price volatility by pegging KLAY to US Dollar. KUSD also provides toolkits such as ‘Klaybook’ to facilitate smart contract deployment and ‘Klayfee,’ which enables fee delegation for Klaytn-based BApps.
Odin for Klaytn (Korea)
Odin for Klaytn is a real-time smart contract auditing service that allows developers to easily analyze and review their smart contracts in order to prevent security risk. It also issues immutable audit reports to certify smart contracts that no longer contain security risks or code errors.
The first five teams of Tier 1 will receive $100,000 each, which will be awarded in KLAY, while Tier 2 (the second five teams) and Tier 3 (the third five teams) will receive $50,000 and $30,000 worth of KLAY each.
The winning teams will also be promoted and listed on ‘DApp.com’ and ‘State of the DApps,’ which are also Klaytn’s partners. Over a dozen Klaytn-based BApps are already listed on both DApp.com and State of the Dapps. With the winning BApps to be additionally listed, we can expect to see a richer Klaytn ecosystem.
“We are excited to welcome prospective blockchain services in various industry domains including finance, entertainment, lifestyle, and technology,” said Chase Choi, the Head of Business. “Klaytn is going to provide the winning teams with full support on business and technical sides for successful service operation and mutual growth with us. To foster a healthy blockchain ecosystem, we also excluded gambling services,” he added.

Assured Asset Management Launches Supply Chain Finance Solution with Shui On Group
Assured Asset Management (“Assured”), a Hong Kong-based technology-driven asset manager, has launched its Traceable Accounts Payable (“TAP”) platform with the Shui On Group. TAP is a blockchain-based digital payment system backed by approved supplier account receivables and contract payables issued by anchor enterprises. The partnership aims to leverage TAP to illuminate transaction flows deep within Shui On’s construction supply chain.
TAP addresses a crucial pain point for business leaders: the lack of efficient, reliable and transparent methods for SMEs buried within supply chains to access liquidity. TAP leverages blockchain technology to record the transfer of goods and services and provides verifiable records of SME involvement in deep-tier anchor operations that enable access to liquidity regardless of SME size. TAP adds a new capacity for liquidity providers, banks and credit investors to access the yields of SMEs while using the credit profile of anchor enterprises through verifiable and immutable sourcing records.
Assured is partnering with the Shui On Group to integrate Assured’s core competency in financial technology development with Shui On’s Chinese construction supply chain to launch the platform. Together, the two firms aim to release a solution that benefits all stakeholders within Shui On’s supply chain, including Shui On, SME counterparties and financial institutions.
“Technology-enabled supply chain finance for small and medium enterprises is a significant growth opportunity in today’s financial industry,” said Robert Cheung, CEO of Assured Asset Management. “The TAP platform enables end-to-end financing within the entire supply chain using modern technologies to resolve the difficulties of SME credit risk assessment and address the unique financing needs of SMEs. We are delighted that Shui On resonates with the value of TAP and are excited for a great partnership going forward.”
“A robust supply chain is instrumental for Shui On. By creating an immutable audit trail, the TAP platform will benefit SMEs within our supply chain as well as our core business by illuminating transactions deep within our supply chain and reducing the risk of fraud and error,” said Allan Zhang, Executive Director of Shui On. “This partnership will provide a powerful solution to strengthen the overall efficiency and transparency of our construction supply chain. We see great long-term business value in adopting TAP to issue account receivables among our suppliers.”
Assured and Shui On will begin the onboarding process in December 2019 and anticipate opening the TAP platform for liquidity providers in Q1 2020.
