Microsoft Power BI – Your Business at a Glance

Finding it hard in your busy day to have the time to properly see what’s going on in your business?  Then look no further than Microsoft Power BI.

What is Power BI, I hear you say?

Power BI is a tool from Microsoft that allows an easy insight into your business through great looking, interactive reports!

 

At ACIT, we have connected this tool to Sage 50 Accounts, to combine powerful and in-depth reporting with a presentation that allows you to understand your business data at a quick glance.

It has the ability to publish reports to the cloud on a scheduled refresh, which means you can see them on your PC, laptop, mobile or tablet device wherever you are.

You can have visibility to a number of areas of your Sage data such as:

Sales (including outstanding sales reports which would show the current value of orders by both account manager and customer)

Stock levels (including a stock report giving current and projected stock levels at a quick glance)

Territory reports have been created with a fully interactive satellite map which can show the location of your customers based on variables such as due date for orders.  (The benefit of territory reports is that you could visually plan the route your delivery driver should take and easily see the best route for their drops.)

 

We have been hard at work creating reports and dashboards that are able to give insights that are not visible directly from Sage, and we are always up for the challenge of creating more.  Is there anything we can do for you?
