Power BI clarifies data
Shortly after the implementation of Microsoft Power BI, it has become an indispensable tool for NPI. The first thing that employees encounter when opening a browser in the morning is a Power BI report that shows the sales figures from the day before and compares the figures on various parameters.
“In the past, we had a really hard time assessing our customers and whether dealing with them was profitable. With the new Power BI solution, sales and purchases have become transparent. This has enabled us to make decisions based on facts rather than feelings or assumptions.”
NPI has three different cubes in their Power BI; a sales cube with, among other things, sales figures and sales prices; a stock cube with purchasing and stock prices and an economy cube. The figures that are displayed in Power BI are continuously adjusted.
In addition to accessing Power BI reports via PC, salesmen have access to Power BI reports via tablets when on the road and driving around to customers. This enables them to look up how the individual products sell to the customer and how much NPI earns on the products. They can use this to figure out where to spend resources and how to optimize revenue and sell the products where revenue is highest.
