Excel has been an essential part of management systems for decades, especially in small and medium-sized companies, where it complements the functions of accounting, ERP or CRM tools. It is the cement of many information systems in a more or less clear and mastered way, officially or unofficially...
In particular, it is the most widely used reporting tool for making data talk. Many departments have built their decision models on this sophisticated spreadsheet.
Yet Excel often takes us down winding paths filled with complex formulas and dark "macros" and has, what's more, certain limitations. Complexities and limitations that can lead to frustration and a significant loss of time, and even major risks when no one knows what a macro does or how to rewrite it since the person who coded it has retired or finished his/her internship...
Have you ever thought about an alternative?
Yes, we have, it's called Power BI: finer, more varied, more relevant, more interactive and much more meaningful analyses, built more quickly and more simply on your existing data systems (ERP, CRM, and even Excel tables!).
Here, for example, is a social climate study carried out using Power BI. The report provides a macro analysis of the situation with an immediate view of absenteeism, turnover and general satisfaction at the company level. Then, visuals by axis of analysis (department, city, criteria), coupled with the use of filters, allow for a better understanding of the company's data and the implementation of an action plan.
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. to prove it to you during a webconference dedicated to this topic.
On this occasion, we will present the case of Aromandise, a Montpellier SME with national success, which decided to switch from Excel to Power BI with a double objective:
- to manage its sales and marketing activities in a more relevant way
- enable more employees to design reports and analyze company data
