You’ve heard a lot about how data can help drive business decision-making, but maybe you’ve had a bad experience, or you’re not even sure where to start. We’re here to tell you that data can help you make better decisions as a business, but that you should engage with a partner (like us) to help you configure and optimize your business data through software designed to point you in the right direction. That’s why we’re proud to offer SMB Intelligence, powered by Microsoft’s Power BI.
“I’ve looked into Business Intelligence before, but I feel like only a few people at our firm would ever look at it.”
Power BI is designed to work at any scale –– whether it’s one person diving into the information, or an entire division. We can help you configure it to make sense for what you need.
“Business Intelligence feels complicated.”
Don’t let Business Intelligence scare you –– but remember that your technology partner (like us!) matters just as much as the software you choose. We’re here to make sure that it works the way you need it to.
“I’m worried that a Business Intelligence platform is going to miss information that’s vital to our unique situation.”
Power BI has over 120 free connectors to applications like Salesforce, Excel, Dynamics 365 and more –– so it’s designed not to miss crucial information.
“Business Intelligence sounds expensive.”
Here’s what is expensive –– not knowing where your business isn’t running as efficiently or profitably as it can. Plus, if you choose SMB Cloud as your hosting provider, you get SMB Intelligence for free.
