Making your organisations' data analysis clearer

Our data analysis and reporting service will help your organisation to optimise your available data. At BDI, we find that all organisations have an ever-increasing amount of data available but it is often under-utilised.

We take a benefit and objective-led approach to identify your organisation’s available data. As a result, BDI will work with your organisation to make use of this data by focusing on delivering speedy and cost-effective benefits to your organisation.

All our Excel and Web reporting packs are securely delivered, including two-factor-authentication, using the Sharperlight product. We also fully support all versions of SunSystems and many other ERP solutions.

The data analysis & reporting process

1. Objective Setting

One of our experts with sit down with you and your stakeholders so as to agree the objectives for the data project. You may already know your reporting requirements, but at BDI we find we can help identify other needs through the process of interviews.

2. Data analysis

The data in your systems is analysed, along with data from any other sources (such as market or demographic data). This analysis considers what is available, how it can be accessed, as well as how it relates to data in other systems. Afterwards, we can build the necessary routines to extract, transform, and load the data ready for reporting.

3. Reporting

Following an analysis, BDI can help build reports that meet your information needs. These reports can be created either through existing software within your organisation, or new software implemented as part of our collaboration.

    Modern reporting incorporates dashboards that display short and long-term information about your business. These can show overall performance and trends, as well as highlighting items that need immediate action.

    We provide solutions with trend analysis reporting, so you can identify issues before they become problems. With this in mind, this reporting works alongside our budgeting & forecasting services to model 'what if' scenarios for your business.

Functional modules to improve your data analysis

BDI has developed a suite of traditional financial reports and modules that fit seamlessly around your existing SunSystems solution. All our reports can be deployed within traditional Excel spreadsheets, but we also specialise in delivering remote reporting using existing browser tools.

For example, the reporting pack contains Profit & Loss statements, balance sheets, Aged Debtor, and Creditor Analysis. We also provide further configurable reports to meet your needs. Furthermore, our suite of Budgeting & Forecasting reports provide your stakeholders across your organisation valuable financial and KPI style dashboard reports.
