Like This Iceberg, Your Data Is Also Hiding a Lot Below the Surface. Acumatica Reports and Dashboards Will Help Uncover It.
Though few of us have seen an actual iceberg, every one of us knows that old saying about how all we see of the iceberg is its tip. The iceberg actually extends far underwater with a lot that we can’t see.
Your business data is like that too. There’s the stuff you can see on the surface… and then there’s all the rest of it, which lurks below the depths and can usually only be seen in glimmerings here and there when you have the time to take a deep dive and really explore.
You don’t have time to waste “exploring” your data – you have a job to do! Since your company owns all that data anyhow, we think it should work for you, helping you do your job faster, better, and easier.
With Acumatica reports and dashboards, your data—every single bit of it—will work for you.
In this two-part series, you’ll learn more about how Acumatica’s powerful, real-time reporting and analytics engines can help your company get that data working for you the best way possible.
What Are Acumatica Reports and Dashboards?
Acumatica reports and dashboards are contained in the Reporting, Dashboards, and Data Analysis Toolkit that you can use with your Acumatica Cloud ERP to gain better insight into how your business is doing in real time.
Acumatica’s reports and dashboards provide:
- At-a-glance KPIs and live reports you can drill down into
- Actionable data based on your specific needs, to help you pivot quickly
- Reports on every process in your Acumatica-run business, not just financials
- Up-to-date information that authorized people at your company can see
The toolkit offers two business-building solutions: reports and dashboards. In Part 1 of this series, we’ll discuss reports in Acumatica. In Part 2 (our next Acumatica article) we’ll discuss dashboards, and you’ll learn how easy it is to set up your reports and dashboards with no coding skills required.
With the flexible reports in the Acumatica reports and dashboards toolkit, your company will have access to a complete set of reports for each module in your Acumatica system, which means you’ll have 250+ standard reports out of the box. Each of these reports can be modified or customized to meet your exact needs, as well as the needs of various roles and people in your company.
All reports are “live,” which means you and your team can interact with them by selecting clickable drilldowns that provide more information when you need it.
In addition to the standard reports, you’ll also have the power to easily create your own, one-of-a-kind, customized reports that deliver the real-time information you need exactly when you need it. These reports are also live.
Because Acumatica’s reports and dashboards are also on the cloud, you’ll know that the reports you need will always be available to you and any authorized member of your company, anywhere and anytime.
How Much Data Is Concealed Below the Surface at Your Company?
Like the iceberg pictured at the top of this article, your business data extends far below the surface. There’s a lot more there than financial data; it’s likely you have massive amounts of in-depth data about every facet of your business.
However, if you can’t see all your data, the time and money you’ve spent to collect it has been wasted.
The beauty about our Age of Big Data is that companies are finally empowered to collect, store, and use the vast quantities of data that customers and businesses generate every single day. This data spans everything: customer satisfaction levels, shipping speed and supplier-lead-time data, trends for orders and cancellations – as well as pretty much anything else you could think of.
Savvy business leaders know that staying ahead in today’s competitive business landscape requires viewing and using all data, because only data can help optimize processes and services. The companies that get the best insight can deliver a better product, increase their revenues, and become leaders in the industry.
And now it’s time for you to become a leader as well.
It’s time to look under the surface of your data.
