A key player in the business intelligence software space, Intuitive Business Intelligence has a large global clientele across the public, private and tertiary sectors. The U.K.-based IT company ProcessFlows recently joined the roster of Intuitive’s satisfied customers. Company spokespersons recently said that the company’s flagship solution, Intuitive Dashboards, has allowed ProcessFlows to achieve an unprecedented level of transparency in its business reporting process, ultimately helping it transform the way it manages and runs the business.
In today’s business environment, companies are treating data as one of their most crucial assets, and in the age of big data, it has become increasingly important for all types and sizes of businesses to harness the full power of their existing data to garner actionable business insights. Intuitive Dashboard has been designed to help companies in this respect.
The award winning solution has been designed to bring together all critical management information into a consolidated, customizable and interactive dashboard view. This makes it easier for the businesses to single out the knowledge and information that matter and garner invaluable business insight. All these help the management to speed up the decision making process, ultimately leading to business efficiency, cost reduction and enhanced competitiveness.
Following the implementation of Intuitive Dashboard, ProcessFlows has reportedly experienced significant cost saving and an organization-wide efficiency improvement.
ProcessFlows’ business automation solutions are designed to streamline processes in areas of the business identified as inefficient. The complex business reporting process calls for the access to real-time data. With a goal to streamline and improve this complex process, the company was on the lookout for a solution which enabled accurate tracking and monitoring of key performance and management data from a single point of access.
In a statement, ProcessFlow’s CEO Chris Thompson (News - Alert) explained that the deployment of Intuitive’s award winning dashboard technology enabled the company to achieve unified and actionable insight into the different areas of its business. Integrated with its existing SalesLogix, OnBase and Microsoft (News - Alert) Excel system, the said solution provided the employees with instant, real time access to a plethora of business data. It also reduced the company’s efforts involving manual data collection and report production. All these reportedly drastically improved the automation solution provider’s complex consulting reporting process.
Integrated with SalesLogix CRM system, the dashboard facilitated remote tracking and monitoring functionality for the disparate workforce based in offshore offices in Sophia. The better coordination ultimately helped in faster and more efficient resolve of issues.
“Implementing Intuitive Dashboards has transformed our reporting processes, delivering an immediate ROI by empowering us with consolidated, real-time views of our performance against departmental KPIs while providing the critical management insight needed to effectively forward plan and resource, ensuring our business is as robust and efficient as possible,” Thompson commented in a statement.
The Web-based dashboard solution provides instant access to real-time management information and proactive performance shortfall alerts and trend analysis in an easy-to-understand, visual format. All these enabled ProcessFlows management to quickly and easily identify months showing signs of poor performance. In the next step, actionable decisions were taken to remediate the situation, helping meet targets.
“We view Intuitive Dashboards as a prerequisite to the effective performance of the business, enabling staff to make the right decisions at the right time based on accurate management information that has ultimately resulted in significant cost and time savings at every opportunity,” Thomson (News - Alert) added.
The dashboard also helped the company to prevent inefficient use of expensive resources, enabling it achieve estimated £25,000 (around $41,665) savings per annum and freeing up consultants’ time to generate additional revenue.
“ProcessFlows is already benefitting from instant, graphical dashboard access to their critical performance data, resulting in substantial time and cost savings and enhanced business performance through substantially improved operational processes and procedures,” Colin Stocker, channel account manager at Intuitive Business Intelligence noted in a statement.
