Business Intelligence for Sage is a dashboard and reporting platform which is pre-configured to connect to a variety of Sage products, including Sage 200.
By using a central reporting dashboard rather than dumping data down into Excel and manipulating it from there, users can meet even the most stringent data security standards. With BI, users can connect directly to their data, instead of extracting it from legacy databases and tools.
Access rights can be controlled on a user basis, limiting what people can and can’t see, and more importantly, what they can and can’t do.
How is Business Intelligence for Sage 200 different from reporting in Excel?
Microsoft Excel is the chosen reporting tool for many companies, but as those businesses grow, it can be difficult to scale those reports. Many companies get to the point where each team is creating their own Excel reports, leading to extended reporting times and wasted resource.
When all teams are looking at the same data – which is always live and up to date – everyone is on the same page. There’s also no requirement to dump data out of the dashboard; the reports simply update live, on their own.
