What is business intelligence?

Business intelligence (BI) uses software to convert reams of information into bite-sized insights to inform your decision-making. The software receives data from your ERP system and other data sets via a sync tool or application programming interface (API). The BI tool then analyses the data sets and presents the findings in graphical dashboards and reports.

Better decision-making across departments

BI software allows you to take data from various sources and gain new insights. Such objective data helps you make better decisions over stock, pricing, promotions, or any other important business area.

Operational efficiency and reduced costs

BI software helps you spot inefficiencies in your supply chain. You can then measure costs as you eliminate bottlenecks in real-time which then helps you to drive efficiency and profit.

Enhanced customer experience

With BI software, you can better understand what your customer wants. You can then tailor your service by analysing customer behaviour, feedback, and sales data. As a result, customer satisfaction improves.

Stand out and get ahead of the curve

BI software gives insights into market trends, customer behaviour, and emerging opportunities. Viewing this information with objectivity removes the guesswork and gets you ahead of the curve.
