Better Business Intelligence for Smarter Decision Making
For most businesses, having enough data is not the problem; being able to access it and make use of it, however, is an ongoing challenge. That’s where business intelligence comes into play. Business intelligence (BI) is the process of collecting, organizing, and analyzing data and turning it into useful and actionable information. This information provides you with greater insight into your entire organization, unearthing competitive advantages and new opportunities, alerting you about issues so you can address them before they become problems, and revealing ways to address concerns with existing procedures or processes, and more. For example, you might want to:
- Identify top-selling products by region, office/store, or salesperson
- Identify trends, both good and bad, early on
- Generate ad-hoc financial reports
- Track competitors in your area
- Compare information about customers, products, prices, and costs over time
BI and Microsoft Dynamics NAV/Dynamics Business Central
For most companies, their enterprise resource planning (ERP) software holds volumes of information that can help them make better long-term (strategic), short-term (tactical), and daily (operational) decisions. But again, getting to that data is a problem—but not with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Business Central. NAV and BC provide an open platform that makes the data much more accessible to than most other ERP platforms and more useful to the organization for business intelligence.
Whether you are looking for a simple report to make decisions on daily operations, or you need a comprehensive analysis before making a move into a new market, Dynamics NAV and BC can help. These tools provide direct access to real-time, business-critical information, and a wide range of analytical tools to help you manage budgets, create and consolidate reports, and look for trends and relationships.
