IntegrationWorks partners with Koivu Solutions to integrate and synchronize data in Excel and enterprise solutions.

IntegrationWorks, the company that specialises in data connectivity for enterprise applications, infrastructure, and cloud environments, today announced their new partnership with Koivu Solutions, provider of the innovative platform for integrating Excel® with enterprise solutions, such as ERPs, CRMs and MDMs

“When I had my first meeting with Koivu’s founders in 2020, I immediately realised that their platform solves a problem that exists at most enterprises: The Excel Bypass of enterprise systems. When business needs change quickly, IT teams often struggle to change enterprise systems fast enough, causing employees to build the needed logic and data sets in spreadsheets. This results in two different data sets, or ‘truths’; data in spreadsheets vs. enterprise systems. Koivu.Cloud solves this problem in an elegant and repeatable way, and is a valuable addition to our toolbox,” says Rob Benson, Chief Executive of IntegrationWorks.

How does Koivu.Cloud work?

“Hundreds of millions of Excel users worldwide love Excel because it is a flexible personal tool that gives them what they need quickly. Companies have invested millions in enterprise systems with the goal of having all critical data in those systems. Koivu.Cloud is a solution that connects Excel to enterprise systems in a very innovative way, enabling one truth for planning and decision making while allowing users to continue to use the spreadsheet tool they prefer,” explains Sami Lahti, Co-Founder of Koivu Solutions.

Koivu.Cloud enables enterprises to accelerate processes, improve quality and reduce costs in four simple steps: 

1) Use existing spreadsheets. Keep the Excel sheets you love and let Koivu help you get the most out of what you’ve built into them.

2) Migrate data to the cloud. Create a cloud database from your Excel sheet in a super-easy way and profit from Koivu.Cloud’s powerful enterprise software capabilities.

3) Integrate and automate. Accelerate business processes and eliminate manual data entry with Koivu’s instantly created REST APIs that integrate Excel data to other systems via the cloud database.

4) Simulate and optimize. Leverage the cloud-based simulation engine for planning, pricing and other business critical tasks. 

“As a global leader in integration, IntegrationWorks is an ideal partner for Koivu. We are excited about our partnership and look forward to working together to deliver easy-to-use solutions that fulfill our customers’ business and integration needs,” says Janne Salmi, Co-Founder of Koivu Solutions.
