Simply using ERP software may not always be enough to ensure the absolute success of your business, since retaining an endless stream of data can often get confusing if you don’t know the correct steps to take to make sense of that data. At Enapps we believe that careful analysis of the real-time data is one of the major keys to success. This requirement is both effectively and efficiently delivered via our in-system BI functionality.
With a raft of in-system BI functionality on offer such as ODBC reporting via Excel, On-screen, Pentaho, KPI’s (key performance indicators) and Dashboard reportings; Enapps ERP operators can easily arrange all of the required information via a single database structure along with the ability to compare and analyse the outcomes of any related area (e.g. Sales, Manufacturing, Marketing or Human Resources). Instead of pulling different and often unreliable data from disparate systems (multiple versions of the truth), our clients have all of the correct and essential data available 24/7 which is accessible for any company discipline due to the intuitive and customisable ERP Dashboards that we provide as part of our implementations.
ODBC reporting is delivered within Excel by transforming live ERP data into a familiar format for management meetings. All of the information can effortlessly be updated with just a single click of the refresh button.
Pentaho reports deliver information from the ERP into industry standard formats such as Excel, Word or PDF. These are easily generated and managed and always contain the very latest system data. All reports are available in both electronic or paper versions and can be effortlessly delivered by any ERP operator with the sufficient right to do so. One of the main highlights of the reporting functionality is that they can be customised according to any clients’ requirements and include only the relevant information required (e.g. which product is sold most, which sales team sold most products, which products are currently located in the warehouse and which ones need to be purchased etc.).
Reports can be as complex or simple as required, allowing system operators who have been Pentaho trained to make changes to existing reports or create completely new ones. Pentaho reports can also contain an in-system generated barcode, which facilitates scanning of the required Sales, Purchase or Manufacturing order. Product and shipping labels can also be printed using in-system functionality, so operators have the ability to check products in and out of the warehouse via mobile devices.
Key Performance Indicators
KPI’s are not just for Sales targets and can help operators transform system data into a sensible visual representation of any system metric. They are configured as part of the implementation to the customers’ requirements and are easily reconfigured by simply editing the associated SQL query.
‘A picture paints a thousand words’ is a saying which also holds true for large amounts of data. Dashboards effectively condense and arrange the required data into a visually relevant graphical representation, which allows the operator to, for instance, easily view and spot data trends.
By enabling this type of in-system BI functionality, the Enapps ERP solution will consistently deliver the ability for you to make timely business decisions whilst always using the most up-to-date system data.
