Business Intelligence Tool - Small Businesses

As a small business owner or manager you must constantly explore the opportunities for growth and optimisation. Whether your business is small and nimble by choice, or you are a small business with aspirations of growth, your business challenges are the same as the enterprise that is much bigger than your size. No matter the size of the organisation, no business manager wants to spend money needlessly and no business wants to operate in an environment of confusion. Many small businesses believe that their size ensures accurate and swift exchange of information and hence ensures that decisions are timely, effective and always made in a way that will help the business

succeed and grow. Yet, even in the smallest business environment your competition may include large enterprises. In order to compete and sustain business success, you must work with timely, accurate information, filtered for your needs. You don’t have time to shuffle through multiple reports and punch numbers into a calculator! The information produced by accounting systems, financial professionals, purchasing, sales, training and other functions can be difficult to interpret and filter.

There is no need to wonder if you are making the right choices to achieve a competitive advantage or improve your client satisfaction or change your supplier. Business Intelligence Tool and Corporate Performance Management solutions can help you to find, filter and understand business results, and you need not sacrifice or compromise because you are operating in a small business environment. Whether you employ five people or hundreds, there is a BI and CPM solution to suit your budget, and your business environment and needs. ElegantJ BI implementation options are flexible to your needs. You may wish to deploy our product on premises or choose the worry-free, hosted option with Software as a Service (Saas) and let us maintain and support the solution! Both options are affordable and practical for the small business enterprise.

Business Intelligence Tool

Improve Strategic Alignment and Instill Accountability in Every Function and Team Member

To succeed in today’s sophisticated, competitive market, every organisation must establish business alignment throughout the enterprise no matter the individual responsibility or function. It is imperative that each person understands how their day-to-day tasks impact the success of the company and how they can contribute to the bottom line. Each team member must clearly see the linkage between the company goals and the tasks they perform on a daily basis and, more importantly, must be able to clearly see the issues that arise and where results may fall short of expectations. If your end-users have access to a Business Intelligence Tool that is easy to use (even for the average business user) and can provide clarity and analytical capability, they will then become an active member of your management team – using the insight and information from the BI and CPM solution to measure, adapt and monitor results.

Sample Case Study

“We need quick and cost-effective tools for understanding business statistics better.”
Ryan Simons, Age 31, Owner, Words Play

Ryan launched this Direct Marketing firm two years ago. The organisation consists of 11 employees and generates an annual revenue of $2.8 million dollars. Ryan is planning to double the business size over the next two years. Like many small business managers, Ryan plays multiple roles within his organisation. Because his need for information may vary, depending on the perspective he has and the decisions he must make in any given situation, he needs to see information in a flexible way.

In order to achieve his goals, Ryan must establish a uniform, dependable data and reporting system that can provide the flexibility and analytical capability to understand market demands, provide industry-specific performance indicators and metrics and offer a cost-effective solution that will enable maximum customer reach. The BI and CPM solution must also satisfy his needs now and in the future, as the company and team grows. Because his end-users have varied technical skills and daily tasks, he must provide a system that is simple and easy to adopt, and one that will provide the flexibility to enable every user to see and manipulate data in a way that is meaningful to them. Ryan needs a solution that will be flexible for his needs, regardless of the role he is playing at any given moment, and he needs a solution that will grow with the enterprise and be flexible to changing requirements.

Ryan selected the ElegantJ BI solution suite to satisfy the defined requirements. This solution provided simple, swift data integration and analytical capability and was easy and cost-effective to implement. It provided his team with an industry-specific view of the data and a clear picture of the impact of historical decisions and results. Dashboards, alerts, impact and sensitivity analysis, balanced scorecards and other features provided the flexibility and information required to measure and monitor results on an ongoing basis, and make changes to processes and assignments to keep the company on track for desired growth. Metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) clearly illustrate accountability and where changes must be made. Because Ryan wanted to limit the IT investment and leverage the support and maintenance capability of the service provider, he chose the Software as a Service (SaaS) implementation option. The ElegantJ BI team maintains and supports the solution in a hosted environment and Ryan can relax and focus on what is important to his business success. With the ElegantJ BI solution, Ryan can establish key alerts and delivery and publishing guidelines so he automatically receives the information he needs via email. He no longer has to log into separate enterprise systems, create reports or work with out-of-date information.
