Blue Cow Software Inc. developed Ignite Analytics 3.0 as a metrics-based software program to help retailers and service companies in the propane, fuel oil and HVAC industries. Ignite Analytics 3.0 tracks key metrics, reports on data in real time and suggests delivery and service adjustments to business owners. In addition, it automatically informs business owners when something needs to be done before they recognize it from failure elsewhere in the business, the company says. The company first released the software program in 2010. It updated Ignite Analytics 3.0 to feature visual dashboards with key performance indicators on one screen. The software program also has the ability to receive automated feedback on business health in comparison to industry benchmarks and personal goals.
