Published on: Mar 02, 2016

Be More Productive with Sage Enterprise Intelligence Integrated with Your Enterprise Software

We are always looking for ways to save time in our daily activities. Time is one of our most precious commodities, so it is wise to use it well. Here is a simple way to eliminate busywork and add more time to your day so you can focus on more important activities.

Using a business intelligence solution integrated with your enterprise software can improve the reporting process and give you the information you need in a fraction of the time. An Aberdeen study suggests that using business intelligence can reduce time to notification of a significant event by 5.5 hours. Sage Enterprise Intelligence can extract essential information from large volumes of data stored in your enterprise software, such as Sage 300 and Sage EM (formerly known as Sage X3), and reduce time to decision.

Eliminate manual reporting time

Intelligent financial reporting enables employees to use time more productively by removing the manual element of data analysis. In turn, this allows for certain expenses or specified data sets to be pulled up in the blink of an eye instead of requiring hours of manual collection and data processing.

Improve focus on business objectives

Participating in the day-to-day operations can divert attention from overall business objectives and goals which are key to taking your company to a whole new level. Financial reporting using business reporting helps bring staff closer to those goals. Using custom dashboards allows things like slow paying debtors to be identified easily to be sure they are being monitored.

Maintain consistency and automate tasks

In an instant, business intelligence allows employees to draw key conclusions from volumes of data. Intelligent financial reporting features found in Sage Enterprise Intelligence give the flexibility to customize and manipulate reports to make them even easier to analyze and use. It is also possible to make sure your company’s brand identity is adhered to by customizing reports with the same look. The automation of these tasks saves time while also keeping the company image from inconsistencies.

Find problem areas faster

Business intelligence helps create dashboards that assist in product and revenue analysis. This provides the opportunity to drill down on key products that are high revenue generators and to emphasize products and ways to improve those that aren’t selling well.

Watch KPIs that affect your business

Key performance indicators (KPIs) offer so much valuable information, but they can take time to collect. With Sage Enterprise Intelligence software, reporting of these KPIs is made easy by spending less time generating them and more time using the information at your fingertips to evaluate and act on the results.

As you can see, there are many ways to save time in reporting accurate and relevant data. The nice part is that one-time customizations can be re-used over and over, making them even more time-saving. Ultimately, this allows for more time to focus on business goals and objectives while not compromising the quality or accuracy of the reports at all. Much of this comes from eliminating human error by letting the accounting system do the work for you.

In summary, business intelligence improves decision making processes, makes it easy to access and share information, enables analysis in real-time, reduces the chance of creating bottlenecks, and helps identify what might be wasteful or unnecessary. Sage Enterprise Intelligence offers all of this and so much more functionality to help in automating and speeding up reporting. To learn more about Sage Enterprise Intelligence, visit here.
